    Milking on silver

    depends on the coin and where the spots are, the kangaroo is an easy example due to the lines on it so using the eraser in a way that follows the lines reduces the visible damage, a coin which is proof like will have noticable marks from the eraser, if you try it, use it gently and get a good white eraser like a staedtler
  5. maybe not by TSF Standards but for a dealer you would be hard pressed to get a coin cheaper unless buying in bulk and of course he offers discounts for bulk buying and bank payment, the point the OP was making was his honesty, other dealers will have had the same issues with the Little John but just send them out as bullion regardless because that's exactly what they are, remember dealers have VAT to add on and running costs for premises and websites etc etc.... we on here can sell at below dealer prices because we find it easier and cheaper to do, and of course a few dealers do free delivery so a £25.00 coin on here can run into £27.85 if you add on 1st signed for... making a mere £1.15 difference or with Martins discount scheme you can get x 20 King Arthur's for £27.28 per coin delivered ...... or a tube for £682.00
  6. £80.00 each plus postage of buyers choice and risk if buying all 3 i'll cover the difference with SPECIAL DELIVERY with buyer paying only £5.00 towards postage (probs saving a couple of quid or so) cheers....
  7. as title says, if anyone has one of these or even both, if you can message me looking to pay up to £38.00 inc 1st signed for postage cheers me dears!!
  8. nice little parcel from Martin this morning... The knights of the past are amazing, Germania Mint is by far my fav mint for silver Little Rabbit too.... great coins as usual Gizmo Pics ....... cheers again @DrDave
  9. So....... got my Coin Gizmo from @DrDave and first attempt on a 1/10th Brit as wanted to see how it worked on a small coin with lots of detail... first coin was with the Gizmo and 2nd without, both took from a Samsung S21 and the cloth was a fine glass cleaning cloth even though it looks like a floor carpet in the pics 😂
  10. Someone i work with, her husband collects and sells Lego, If its a set he wants to build he buys two, one for him and one to invest in, unopened sets carry better value as you probably know... some expensive sets out there too
  11. one more thing, get a membership on here, if there are any designs you're after, ask on here, people have some wierd and wonderful collections and generally cheaper than elsewhere, just no free postage !!! 😂
  12. silver is shiny, its fab....... let the journey take control........ enjoy the trip, cos it is a trip.....
  13. look at the profiles etc, always test when you buy, even from here, its a good habit to get into... scales, calipers, magnets etc for silver can all add up to whittling out the fakes
  14. covering himself for bad feedback, if in doubt, dont buy it.... plus dont worry about asking questions, its how you learn, better to ask than get stung, as a wise man once said "The only stupid question, is the one never asked"
  15. and free postage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😂
  16. yep, he's always done this, makes it more trustworthy, top man

    Confused again

    I think for some people they put to much emphasis on bullion coins being perfect and have high expectations, the premiums on silver coins on here are lower than most dealers and when they take a coin that has a milk spot on they are possibly hoping for perfection, if a coin is minted at bullion standard they should get try to have a mindset that one or two milk spots is to be expected and if they dont know how to get past that then look to other options as milking on bullion is pretty much a given over time and even on coins just out of production, dealers wont accept returns on slight milking as they know its sold as bullion so when a seller on here is asked for a refund as coins are sent milky etc it can be off putting, as dealers dont have to worry about feedback, and when coins on here are being sold for £23.00-£25.00 per oz if a coin has slight issues the buyers are still getting a good price compared to buying from dealers who may also send milky stock ..... Martin always warns on his site when he has milky coins (Robin Hood, Prime Example) but his prices as a dealer for these are still above prices on here, the only difference is the buyer knows what they are getting prior to ordering...
  19. there's a big thick red bar at the top of the screen... 😂
