  1. Quite a Posse you have now Graham- Grumpy, Myrtle, Frankie and Ed- Its gonna start costing you with all these helpers out looking for coins
  2. When will this thread draw to a conclusion- 35 pages and where has it got to? and what has it achieved? Seems to me, its got absolutely nowhere and achieved nothing... 'The problem with doing nothing is that you never know when you're finished.' Groucho Marx
  3. Don't blame you for buying the 2oz at around spot! Fortune favours the brave and all that- nice haul! I personally believe they were a great price if they had of turned up weighing 7.08 grams!
  4. I wish! One in- one out for me currently🙄 Dependent on your position in terms of Gold price- you cannot fall off here.
  5. After a brief interlude, another nice example of the Winged Victory Goddess received today.

  8. Good Lord! Received today all the way from sunny Blackpool- a beautiful 2017 Anniversary 3 Coin Sovereign Set- 2 Sovereign, Sovereign & Half Sovereign.

These three new additions will join my 2017 Bu 5 Pound Sovereign to form another 'poor man's' four coin set. @LawrenceChard your staff provided a first class service from the initial enquiry to delivery.

  10. Worth asking a question or two or perhaps a Wanted here.
  11. I would take your time- there’s lots of them about- I bought a 2001 set nicely toned- just to be sure it hadn’t been messed with, but some toning can look unsightly. The .958 Britannia Silver is susceptible to toning.
  12. Silver or Gold Mike? Silver, anywhere between £80 to £120 Gold, I would say anywhere between Spot and +7% A cursory ebay search and there’s one buy it now at £84.95 plus postage: Item number 164215804791
  13. Received this 1989 Bu 5 Pound Sovereign to join my 3 coin set to form a ‘poor man’s’ 4 coin 1989 set! I haven’t bought any Sovereigns for quite some time and re-aquatinting myself with 22 Carat Gold makes me wonder why I had taken a break. I think grading these classic and special year design coins has its place- but these are staying in their presentation cases and going in that drawer in the dresser for safekeeping- you know the one, the one housing the best cutlery, the Irish Linen Napkins and the Elk Horn handled corkscrew.
  14. True enough. eBay really do lean toward the buyer wearing the trousers on any deal struck. I forgot about the 80 characters.
  15. This is a great idea- leave a response that reads something like.... 'I'm really sorry you still feel this way despite my very best efforts to help resolve your query. The offer of a full refund remains open to you' And to show him up further you could add... 'and the refund will remain open to you for the next 6 months from the date of this response'. You should make a further tidy profit if he demands a refund in 6 months! And you get free storage! 😁 By the time you sell your remaining 200 oz of Silver, that feedback won't be visible unless someone trawls your feedback extremely thoroughly and scrolls and scrolls... Also if you notice on your feedback summary- it only reflects the last 12 months anyway, here's mine below. I am always puzzled by the dispatch time star ratings as I always list with a 2 day dispatch time and never deviate, but occasionally someone will give less than 5 stars! My deficits of 5 stars for Postage I can only attribute to sending overseas using the eBay 'Global Shipping Program' a complete rip off to the buyer- but I feel more comfortable on eBay shipping the item as my responsibility ends at their Lichfield depot. I only ever charge the cost price for UK postage.
  16. I see. I suspect, and as per your initial post, he is taking the pi$$- I am pretty certain he won’t go for a refund- he was likely trying it on for a partial refund- in any case, nobber! @Abyss, I don’t think having one instance of adverse feedback will make any difference to any forthcoming offerings you make on eBay. I do acknowledge however it will stick in your throat for a while.
  17. How is this an explanation to @sovereignsteve's post?
