  1. I bought an angel from this company a few years ago. All I will say is, make sure you have great photographs of both sides of the coin you are buying. I had to get a PayPal refund for one of the coins I bought. It had a crack in it deep enough to get your thumb nail down!
  2. Jammy dog getting it so cheep....I relaxed a bit when I saw you had bought it...I was just too slow😥.
  3. Not ordered from them personally. If all goes well, there should be no tax to pay on importing gold, but our customs people don’t always get it right!...then you have a load of hassle....all part of the coin collecting game I’m afraid!
  4. @Hannibal Hi, Having checked..it looks like I paid double spot for the 1927 20 Franga, and more for the lower grade 1926 (I overpaid maybe for this coin). On the plus side, I only paid 20% above spot for my 1888, and that is looking like a great pick up:- I do not own a 20 Perpera. I’m only collecting Peruvian Una Libras currently.
  5. Photos as promised...edit not currently available🙁 Note difference between torch and axe.
  6. Hi @Lea79 the value is entirely down to grade...if ungraded then much lower. I was looking at an MS66 last year, and it went for silly money...well into four figures. I don’t think I have ever seen one sell for less than £600, but haven’t really followed them recently...unlike @augur...he will know. The 1926 used to go for an extra £50-£100.. Maybe post some pics of the ones you have...
  7. Hi...just checked my records. The 1926 Skanderbegu was bought from a small private dealer based in Thessaloniki (via eBay). He still trades under the name Agamemnon 2586. The 1926 usually carries a higher premium than the 1927, which is odd as it has a higher mintage...5900 as opposed to 5000. Out of all of my LMU these two are probably the most expensive to buy, but in the case of the 1927 it is graded PCGSMS64, so as a graded example it commands a higher price than a raw coin. Two other 20 Francs coins come very close, if not higher:- The 1896 French 20 Fr ‘Angel at Desk’
  8. The 20 Franga carry a large premium..but my goodness they are worth it. I have a large, and diverse coin collection, and without a doubt...the finest coins in my collection are my two Skanderbegus They do come up for auction quite frequently...I bought one from Goldberg’s and one from Greece... Although expensive, I do think they are worth every cent.
  9. I have just discovered a new dealer for me to buy from (In Geneva), and boy am I happy to have found him. NCG -Daniel-Jolliet.com Really good prices, goods better than described, and great communication. Two new Una Libras for the collection:- A superb looking 1962 And an extremely rare 1926 (only two graded by NGC)
  10. Hi chaps...yes...a labour of love...sort of! @richatthecroft...I am short of these...:- The 1926 is on its way from Daniel Jolliet Sarl in Geneva...a dealer well worth checking out..he has some awesome stock, and a gent to deal with. Some of the missing coins do not exist, or just one example is known of. 1959 for example...a dealer (who I know) has the only known example to exist...one day it will be mine. Thank the lord they cost peanuts...if these were UK sovereigns, the prices would be way beyond my fiscal reach. I have tracked a few of the above down, but conditi
  11. Just for you @richatthecroft...The date run to date....although I do have another one in for grading, and two inbound from Geneva.👍
  12. Back from grading at last...some of my cherished Peruvian Una Libras..spot the odd man out 🤔!
  13. Not the usual addition to my stash...but variety is the spice of life😉!
  14. A subject we have faced every year for the last decade...it might also depend on what rate of tax your wife pays as well. The reason why we have always took the car and not cash is as follows:- 1. Lots less hassle to have a fully funded new vehicle, which comes with no additional bills.Peace of mind is worth quite a lot to us! 2. The biggy...does she have lots of bumps?...my Mrs usually manages to hit something about once a year, this is all paid for by her employer, not her. If she had to have her own insurance, it would be getting to pretty high levels by now. All in all
