  1. Hi. Is this listing still live? I'm interested in the remaining QBs. Have PMed you.
  2. Please excuse my ignorance but is the St. Helena 3G different (less desirable?) than the RM 3G? (I have read quite a bit of this thread in order to try to educate myself, but not managed the entire 107 pages yet!)
  3. Lovely! I really like the QBs and so does the wife, which is a big advantage. Not got the fiat for a set right now, so picking them uo one or two at a time as budget allows. Currently averaging about £60/coin, but I think I'll be well over £72.50 each by the time I am done. Good luck with the sale.
  4. Jumped to £875 with a few seconds to go, then to £1,754 in the last second.
  5. I accept BT or PP F&F for finder's fee
  6. At the time of posting, just 15 mins left, but "2020 2 Oz Silver Proof Three Graces NGC PF70UC" stll well under £1,000 on eBay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133830114867?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Is this really the same of those going for thousands? Maybe it will?
  7. I assume the post above is the image version of a typo? Or have you received a batch of double-headed Brits? I assume the post above is the image version of a typo? Or have you received a batch of double-headed Brits?
  8. I find it hard to belive that this, and all the other RM QC issues reported here over recent months, and this are unrelated... They seem to be, quite literally, 'cutting corners'. Good reputations are quite 'sticky' once you've earnt one. However, if you lose it, bad repuations are rather 'sticky' too...
  9. Newbie question here: what's the difference between TCC37 and TCC38 (except £1,700 that is )?
  10. I obtained a 1 oz (avdp) 999 copper bar of silimar dimensions to some silver ones I have. As expected and feared, while it is very easy to tell silver plated brass from solid silver, I can see no difference on the magnetic slide beween pure silver and pure copper. In theory, copper should slide just a few percent more slowly, but due to friction effects blurring the test, there's no way I could detect copper. I would therefore guess that silver plated copper would pass the slide test, so no option but to carefully measure density. Does anyone know why most fakes seem to be plated brass, as copper is so much harder to detect? Is brass easier to work with or something? Or perhaps the silver plated copper ones just don't get detected as often..... There is one last thing I want to try. If the bars were floated on some expanded polystsrene in a bowl of water, the diagmagnetism means it will slowly drift way from a magnet. Silver is 3x as diamagnetic as copper, so may drift noticeably more quickly. This video is where I got the idea. I just don't have any polysterene to hand tonight!
  11. Could you not sell your vouchers, albeit at a slight discount, and use the proceeds to buy better value silver?

    Well here is a fake Pan American 1 oz silver bar being passed off as real: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304066238085?hash=item46cbc29685:g:HJcAAOSwMstg7waq This is a real one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333926297350?hash=item4dbf8eef06:g:iMIAAOSw6QpgVNli Note the radius of the corners, much bigger on the I think is real, and the lettering on the back - big gap between the S of 'Silver' and the edge of bar vs. small gap on the fake. Here is an honest seller: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/352491732426 In your hand it is easy to tell - the fakes are 3 mm thick vs. just over 2 mm for the real ones (they are silver plated brass, so thicker to get the weight about right). I'm seeing bars now that have the corner radius correct, but still have wrong gap by the S. Goodness knows if they are fake or real!

    This guy here is getting very frustrated by eBay's attitude. As he puts it, you can list fake items as real, and eBay is totally happy with that. However if you list a fake item as fake, they pull it down! 1oz Solid Silver Scottsdale Bar, Real Or Fake Please Read Full Description.
