Platinum Lounge - An area for Platinum Premium Members to be notified of some new and upcoming features to the forum and an opportunity for members to put forward suggestions to TSF on ways to improve the forum etc. All suggestions are welcomed, though note that not every suggestion will be viable or feasible for us to implement and that @ChrisSilver is unable to give feedback on all suggestions made. The Platinum Lounge can also be used by Platinum Premium Members to post any topic that would usually be found in the main forums, should they wish to only share this topic with Platinum Premium Members / Official Sponsors / Moderators.
We wish to say a special thank you to all of the Platinum Premium Members, your Premium membership purchase greatly helps towards the running costs of TSF and also towards the costs of growing the forum.
This is the trade section to buy sell and trade exclusively with other Premium Members. e.g. You may have a rare coin that you wish to sell to another collector and would like it to go to a fellow supporter of the forum.
Watch out for vintage shotguns - will be impacted by the lead ban that is upcoming. A few friends on my shoot are pretty worried as they are shooting with Much older Holland’s, Purdy, Army and Navy which probably won’t be able to take steel shot. Re-barrelling for a good gun costs 5-6k.
Good morning all, thank you to all your messages. i do not mind at all paying for the advice. Sorry if ive upset some members trying to leach some information but just trying to do some homework before i make a large purchase.
Have a good week
Bought this Platinum Wedding anniversary strike on the day sovereign when it was released by the Royal Mint in 2017. Sent it off for grading to PCGS and it came back PR68DCAM. So it was incorrectly described as a proof coin (it’s brilliant uncirculated so should be “MS” on the holder) and 68 for a new coin is a bit disappointing.
Earlier this year I broke it out of its slab and resubmitted it for conservation & grading in the hope of achieving a better grade. It just came back. The result? Go take a look the video on the Coin Struck YouTube channel to find out. There is a link to the channel at the bottom of this post.
@KDave QE + banks tightening loan standards would be deflationary, that's what we have atm
QE removes dollars from the system and if banks aren't lending where are the new dollars coming from? mortgages and loans were deferred past few months so dollars that should have been destroyed repaying debt stayed in the system, that helped
If you have QE+ banks lending enough then there's no deflationary pressure. During 2009-2014 banks started lending again so there was no great deflationary pressure released
RPI in 2014-16 was very low, ok it started creeping up but it was still lower than 2011 and lower even than 2007 before there was any QE
2016-19ish also had a very strong economy, everything on a macro level looked good, unemployed was down to the lowest it had been since 2007 and the velocity of money started to stabilise after falling for 9 years
It's reasonable there was a little inflation then and it was down to strong economy not just a delayed reaction to QE
It's a debt based monetary system you need people working and taking out new debt to pay back the old debt+ some, just giving people money wont work for long
