  3. Hello Alex, welcome to the forum.
  4. Hey QuantumStacker, did you manage to sell both in the end?
  5. Ah, so that will be sterling silver casting. Nice work.
  6. Hey Buddy, Welcome to The Silver Forum. Great place to buy and sell precious metals. Congrats on your first purchase. Loads of really helpful people in here. Buy with confidence. All the best Regards Faiz
  7. Welcome to the Forum. Casting hey.... very interesting. Is it silver? or are you also casting base metals? I almost bought a Devil Forge a few months back to cast my own silver bars, but felt I was unable to give it the time necessary to be really good at it. I bought a kilo bar of Nordic Gold recently, just for laughs. Nice paper weight, gives my arms some exercise when I have nothing better to do lol. Anyway welcome, and all the best for the future. Regards Faiz
  8. Hello James, Welcome, and Congrats on tying the nott buddy. A very interesting bio. I traded the US stock market for a while about 20 years ago. Wasn't very good at it at the time lol. Lost interest in trading until 2017 when I started trading Crypto. I made a heap of money during 2017's bull market, but subsequently lost the majority of it in the massive market correction in 2018. I didn't really understand cycles at the time. I realized how dangerous it is to get too attached to a project. Learnt from my mistakes and have since done really well. I find the financial cras
  9. @xmerchant, Milk spotting shouldn't effect the value of bullion grade coins, however, in my experience, it does. No one wants milky coins, @Coolsmp couldn't agree with you more. Without going down the rabbit hole of whether we should accept it because it is bullion grade, I would say that coins are there to be appreciated. How can they be with unsightly stains on them. Some coins can be covered, like they've been dipped in the s**t. As for toning, that's a different matter. As long as you keep the coin in an airtight capsule, it should not tone. Not for a very long time anyway. That's not the
  10. Fair point RII1288. As long as individuals are happy with their purchases, nothing else matters. Good luck with the 2021 brits. Let us know how you get on please.
  11. It does tone the silver. I've tried it in the past, it won't get the milk spots off. I have not come across any chemical method of removing the spots. Mechanical seems to be the only way. Not something most of us would be comfortable doing, regardless of the grade of the coin. The Lesson, don't buy the coins that have a history of milk spotting. Don't buy from the mints that aren't willing to adopt better production standards. Like others have already said, buy spot free coins and pay a little more if you have to. On the other hand, stack bars, if you are just stacking for the silver weight. T
  12. "Canadian mint shield technology", is this new?
  13. @thesongofthunder I really feel for you mate. I can't stand milk spotting. It seems however airtight you keep Bullion grade coins, they ultimately develop some spotting. I've also noticed that if the coins experience the cold, they are more likely to milk spot. I have moved away from stacking Bullion grade coins, as they all seem to suffer from this issue to some degree. I hope you can get your money back on these ones, as I wouldn't accept them in this condition. I can't help but wonder whether the European Mint has issues with their sourcing of coins. No evidence, just a thought that occurre
