  2. Nice find foster! Down the rabbit hole now trying to find the others!
  3. Hattongardenmetals currently offer 8 months free storage. After several purchases over several months you just pay a single post fee to have them delivered
  4. I never got calls from them but did get flooded with the postal ‘offers’ at least two a week despite ticking the no marketing preference on the website. Called and emailed asking them to stop, they even tracked me when I moved house and started sending junk there! Only a final written gdpr letter got them to stop. I agree with Roy it’s not worth it for £11. The junk mail wouldn’t be half as bad if it didn’t basically advertise what you’d been buying
  5. Trading and buying off the internet is where the value of grading comes into it for me. You know from a grade it’s of a certain standard. I’m mainly a collector of older coins, those that have photographed coins themselves know it’s easy to make a good coin look bad or vice versa depending on the angle and lighting. Cleaning lines can be hard to see on many online photos unless they are harsh, having it hand and rotate it against a fixed light source is ideal but not feasible on the internet. Buying graded you typically know what you’re getting
  6. I’ll revisit a forum feature suggestion I made a while ago to Chris. We both couldn’t figure out a way for it to work but my idea was based on the SETS system used in share trading. People could submit their prices to buy or sell and it would enter on the system. For example at a particular time say the spread was 25/26 meaning someone was willing to buy at 25 and someone willing to sell at 26, someone else comes along wanting to buy, they could either hit the ask and pay 26 or enter the price they want to buy and their order would go on the bid, if higher than 25, say 25.5 then the order goes on the bid at 25.5 so the order book becomes 25.5-26. A seller then comes along, can hit that 25.5 bid and a transaction happens or they could put their order on the ask. If lower then 26 say 25.75 the order book becomes 25.5-25.75. If higher than 26 obviously goes higher up the ask and the bid-ask stay 25.5-26 with no trade happening. That way the buyers/sellers can be matched up for the best price for both parties and is essentially an amalgamation of all the individual bullion for sale posts.
  7. @Bigmarc I’ve read a few comments from people on there. Some say the algos scout listings for certain words. Try and just post a photo with name and date next to the item and then comment on your own post with the price and details. Should work then
  8. I tried holding paper silver. I just can’t do it. With physical, you buy, the £s leave your account and yes maybe pay attention for a few days rueing the fact probably could have got another coin or two if only I’d waited until slapdown Tuesday. But then you forget the price in £ and you see them as oz for the pile. With paper all I could do is be glued to the screen seeing £’s on a screen going up and down, getting no work done then panic sell on a tick down since it’s so volatile. I don’t do that with shares. Maybe miners as you suggest is the way to go
  9. I think they’ve just become inactive or don’t update their website anymore. Another thread here
  10. I thought I’d wait it out see if they get the message that I wasn’t interested. My will broke after about a year and simi,are piles as those shown above, so I phoned to tell them to stop. They said I’ll receive a couple more since it’s an automated system and those in the process will be in the way. Another 4 or so months later the number hadn’t relented so then emailed so there was written proof. Again they kept coming faster than I could burn on my woodburner stove. Finally they gave in when I wrote on the back of one of their letters sent in the prepaid envelope. Ws it worth getting a couple of below spot sovs? To me yes but clearly not to them!

  12. There’s a place near where I used to live took ages to get change of use. Having said that another changed quickly and was converted to 3 homes. I don’t know the ins and outs but that seems something you’d need to look into- the change of use, do you have to prove it’s nit viable? Would think that’s easier to do in this climate!
