    1917 sovereigns

    I have emailed Bairds and will see what they say. All comments are welcome and appreciated. I have over 60 sovereigns now and this is the only one which doesn't feel right. It isn't terrible and Bairds may help anyway. Main thing is I am looking to sell a few and I really don't want to be found selling fake sovereigns on TSF. That is what eBay is for. 👍 Matt

    1917 sovereigns

    Last year before I knew anything about precious metals I decided to buy some physical gold and bought 40 sovereigns from Baird (their cheap any age or condition ones somewhere around 5% over spot). I just then put them in my sock drawer (well not really). I have had a big PM purchase and was thinking about selling some of the sovereigns on TSF. Obviously had a load of 1911-1913 and even more 1926-1927 but I also had 3 1917 which given the rarity seems unusual and why would Baird sell a 1917 as cheaply as a 1927? I weighed them (didn't have the scales at the time of purchase) and two are bang on and one is .05g lighter than the other two. Could any or all of them be restrike (fake) and Baird not notice (or care)? Photos attached. The first is the lighter coin I am most unhappy with. Any thoughts. Matt
  8. Still supposed to be selling. Oh well. 1895 M and 1912 sovereigns to add to the collection.

    Morning, Buying scrap 50% silver around spot shouldn't be difficult but expecting pre 1920 925 silver at spot will be expecting too much I think. Unless the coins are so worn / dirty / drilled so the collector value is zero.
  10. Although I am supposed to be selling I seem not to be. 1892 sovereign to add to the collection.
  11. 10 ounce platinum! I think I may struggle to sell this one if or when the time comes.
  12. One of the reasons I am selling a bit of stuff is to pay for this behemoth which turned up this week. I put a sovereign in for scale.
  13. Marc - are you still trying to shift some of your stack? Have been busy - was also waiting to see some trading feedback - I am interested though.
  14. £1 was 20 shillings which would have been 20 X 5.655g when minted so 113.1g of 50% silver. If circulated it will be slightly less. No matter which coins make up the £1 it would have weighed exactly 113.1g when minted. Matt
