  1. Only a couple of these graded 70 with PCGS and one of only two commemorative gold £5 with the third portrait ( plus one in a 2013 set )
  2. There should be no hidden reserve under any circumstances, all should be transparent and declared. If someone has purchased a coin and paid more than they would have done without a hidden reserve they have been deceived regardless of the coin value or if it is was a fair deal or not ! Maybe if you intend to bid on a specific coin you could ask the auction house if there is a hidden reserve before you bid and then decide if you wish to continue ?
  3. Yes winning with 7 games left is a premier league record, the next record that could go is the maximum points for a season, i think Man City hold that currently with 100.
  4. Been a great season, champions at last !! It will be a real scrap next season with City, United, Chelsea, Leicester and maybe others looking good. And more good news - hopefully Gary Neville has now emigrated to Papua New Guinea 😈
  5. The dreaded FDC description strikes again. Unfortunately so many people have their own interpretation of FDC, maybe they even invent their own ? I would never rely on it for a good coin, best to look in person if possible which can be difficult but worth doing if you can.
  6. My personal choice from this era is the 1902 matte proof five pound, Drake sterling have a 62 grade version on their website. There is also a mint state version of the 1902 issued. You have to be careful with the 1887 because this year is well known for forgeries, Chards have a video on this subject.

    1 Baht is 15.244 grams so 96.5% of that is 14.71046 grams. I believe that you can buy them in various sizes.
  8. Personally i think the bag downgrades the viewing experience. I know some people vacuum seal them in plastic but i just keep them in a NGC slab storage case that holds 20 coins which i keep in a cool dry location.
  9. I echo the views of Motorbikez, as a collector i will continue to buy the Numismatic coins that add to my specific collection that i have been hunting down for some time. I have no need or reason to sell, however i will now and again sell numismatic coins that i no longer desire and no longer fit into my collection. Even though we are heading for a recession for sure you can still see people snapping up recently released numismatic coins for over three times their issue price and i think this will continue regardless of what happens. Some people may be hit hard and have to sell coins bullion or numismatic to pay the bills which is unfortunate but that's life.
  10. I would say if you can get one in top condition for £1900 - £2000 you will have done well. One sold yesterday on Ebay for £2150.
  11. Just make sure you get the right set if you want the 2 sov coin included. The premium set has 2 sov 1 sov and half sov, i have seen some sets on Ebay described as premium but they are not actually this set.
  12. I have a friend in the trade in SA and i remember asking him about SAGCE grading some time ago. 99% sure that he said top grade was 110, their equivalent to Sheldon 70 which sort of explains how a 104 got PF66 grade with NGC.
  13. I sold a perfect unmarked one for £1250 but that was about 4 or 5 months ago. They were not issued as a single coin, they all come from sets.
  14. This one sold last year - Great Britain: George V gold Sovereign 1917 MS65 NGC,... Lot 31289 » World Coins » Great Britain Service NGC Grade: MS65 FEATURED VIDEO DESCRIPTION Auction Ended: Apr 26, 2019 Sold For: $50,400.00
