  2. USA & Canada (Graded only)

    There are two top tier grading companies that are widely accepted in the precious metals industry as being the two leading grading companies; Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and Professional Coin Grading Services (PCGS). We would recommend members to choose coins graded by these companies. Coins graded by these companies generally trade to a premium over coins graded by other less popular grading companies.

    This section is for Graded (slabbed) precious metals only, located in USA & Canada. Please indicate which country you are shipping from in your thread.

    • Personally I would be asking for the full value of the insured amount. if you pay for upto £100 then you claim £100 if they lost the package, while it might sound dishonest, you paid for that amount of cover and the package was lost so you have the right to claim that. This could also take into account time spent making the deal, sourcing the items, the cost of time to package and send the item. You would also include damage to the sale or trade from them now not having the item, that could include buying the same items and reshipping to the person or just giving their money back directly. I genuinely feel that despite the true value of the items in the package if the item is totally lost it should be a full cover claim because youre going to have to now mess around with the claim too. As for proof of purchase etc, It was a signed letter by Obama or a drawing you made on some toilet paper that they bought i know this is silly but ultimately you dont have to be honest about what was in it either so long as it wasnt a forbidden item they can mind their own business. I say this because I hate the fact they ask what the item is in the post office, its not prohibited so mind your damn business.
    • What you say Pete is absolutely right and how it should be done, but the royal mail have a made it unfair.  I sell on ebay, and when i looked into making a claim it was very clear that the items purchase price would be the only one refunded, not the sale price or whatever value you put on it..regardless if extra insurance was taken out or not..In the end i didn't bother claiming. If it wasn't for their excellent special delivery service i dont think id bother with them to be honest.

    • Thanks @Madstacks and @Robjw for your comments. I will make up a story just to illustrate a scenario. 1. You purchased a Britannia silver privy one ounce coin for £25 from Bullion byPost in 2018. You kept the receipt but that's pretty useless compared to current prices / value. 2. You ship to a buyer using a tracked and signed Royal Mail service taking £250 insurance cover for loss. The small print covers valuables 3. The best price advertised for this coin today is £100 so that is it's true current value 4. The buyer has paid you £50 for the lost coin. You have insured the package for an amount that covers the loss. In my opinion the claim for loss should be the replacement value of £100 and neither the price you bought it for £25 or the price paid by the buyer £50. What would happen if you shipped a coin on a sale or return basis prior to agreeing a final price ? You value the coin at £200 but the buyer needs to decide if it is worth this amount but is lost in the post. I would hope that if you found the coin listed by a dealer you could submit this document as evidence of value for any loss. What you bought the coin for or what it sold for ( could have grossly undersold on eBay because of poor listing or lack of bids at the time ) seems irrelevant when you are insuring its "value". Anyone else had experience or wish to comment ??

    • i sent this chart to a friend of mine - he is thinking of buying rental properties - i have cautioned him several times about this - he denies what appear to me to be obvious indicators of falling properties prices to come. This is the deflation Wonger talks about - there won't be deflation in gold - it is not in a bubble (yet) but the property market is a massive bubble fed by low interest rates.
