  1. Finally after the best part of nearly five months, two separate trips across the Atlantic and a label change, my Completer has eventually made it back safe and sound. Definitely worth the wait I think😀
  2. Hi all Up for sale is the above celebration coin. Struck on the 15th Feb 2021 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Decimal coinage. The coin is 15.55g of .916 gold with a limited presentation of 700. Comes with all the Royal Mint extras, outer case, outer sleeve, inner case, presentation wood box, original capsule and COA, all in mint condition. COA is signed by Gavin Elliot, Head of production for commerative coins at the Royal Mint. Originally retailed at £1250 on initial release. Selling price £1200 plus free SD delivery. Payment by BT or PPFF. Any questions then please get in touch. Thanks for looking 👍
  3. Bought a while back, but now have a NGC version so surplus to requirements currently. Total of 14 graded at PCGS with only 4 at 70. Price is £875 with free SD postage. Payment by BT or PPFF. Any questions then please ask and thanks for looking.
  4. Looking for two or three of the above in good condition. If you're looking to sell then PM with an offer. Cheers
  5. Pair of 2005 Sov's from @ilovesilverireallydo. Still looking for the blue carded half sovereign if anyone has one 😀
  6. Thanks @SilverMike. It's starting to look that I will have to resubmit, but we shall see. Would I be right in assuming that they won't charge you delivery costs again if I do resubmit. The delivery charge isn't cheap by any means and I don't fancy getting charged again when it is their error.
  7. Thanks @UnoWho. Hopefully they can do that it seems a bit pointless shuffling the coin backwards and forwards, but then I guess it all depends on the paperwork needed. Will definitely email on Monday and see what they say. 👍
  8. Hi all, just trying to get ahead of the game of what to expect before I contact NGC directly. I have a coin coming back from the USA and it has been assigned a MS category instead of PF so the label is going to need changing. I understand that NGC will do this for free but what I'm not sure about is whether I will have to receive the coin back first and then resend with fresh paperwork or will NGC UK just keep the slab and deal with it themselves. Also in the meantime shall I pay the invoice now or wait until the coin is correctly labelled. If anyone has any experience of this I'd greatly appreciate some advice. Cheers
  9. Thanks @dangelo. I got mine from auction 2-3 years ago, the first and only time I've ever seen them, apart from Ebay. Would definitely go down the graded route which as you say does incur the extra costs but you do definitely know what you're getting and gives you piece if mind. Maybe put a wanted ad on the forum, you never know what people have tucked away and could be looking to move on.
  10. Hi @dangelo I don't think it is good news with what you have. As far as I'm aware that is a repro that you've got either gold plated or made out of brass for the tourist market. The two main reasons that give it away are that the genuine Cal gold didn't have a bear on it and also crucially there is no value on the coin, eg dollars or cents. I happen to have a graded octagonal from 1871 which is very similar to yours, however you can see that it says 1/4 dollar as opposed to just 1/4. Hope that helps and if you Google "California gold with bear" there is quite a bit of info out there. I'm certainly no expert and have just lightly researched and read into the history. Fascinating era and times. More than happy to be challenged if I've got any wrong and hope you didn't pay too much for it 😀
