  1. Teenage dreams so hard to beat. ❤️
  2. Unfortunately, as JP Morgan are one of the owners of the Federal Reserve they are never likely to see justice served upon them. A $billion fine but no one goes to jail...well ain’t that a surprise!
  3. I thought PayPal excluded gold from buyer / seller protection a few years ago...might be wrong but I think gold is excluded! That said..I have just claimed a postage refund from PayPal as a cretinous dealer in Germany sent me the wrong gold coin and refused to refund my return postage...a grey area I guess!
  4. @augur what did you do to the coins to get the significant uplifts...Must have some magic dip I reckon🤔
  5. Three beauties back from over the pond today. And the rarest coin I have ever owned...a 1967 Una Libra (1 of 1 at NGC) So why is coin above so rare? https://www.thesilverforum.com/topic/27054-gold-coins-of-south-america/page/2/
  6. A real rarity just back from grading, and a far better result than I could have hoped for. So...why so rare? Although this coin has a mintage of 2002, something happened in 1968 that resulted in most of these coins being melted for scrap 😱. The price of gold rocketed by over 22% in a short period of time, meaning the scrap value would have been too attractive to resist...So into the melting pot they went! So far, this is the only 1967 to be graded by any grading company, and I am only aware of one other known example, and that is held in very tight hands.
  7. Some real rarities just arrived today...3 from France, and 1 from Germany.....eventually! The coin below will need a new entry creating at NGC census. The 1914 POZG and 1915 PVG will only be the second example to be graded by NGC...the last coin, the 1968 BBB ain’t too common either!
  8. I hope the Perth Mint don’t get any more cities involved...this is getting expensive!
  9. Just got the last one for 2020!
  10. By no means my favourite privy kook, but keeps the collection up to date I guess!
  11. That’s what life is all about...buying at the right price at the right time. An old friend of mine ran a bistro in the 1960’s and 1970’s when payments were all in cash....he put a lot of the takings into fine wine....I remember the cellar visit so well... 8 cases of crystal champagne, 6 cases of Chateaux Latour 1966, and 6 cases of the 1967...bought en primeur for £25 a bottle 😃. I shared a few with him, and they were amazing...he basically supped them all until he died a few years ago...to me that’s living the dream. I am not so rich, so have to set my sights a little lower...off to Norf
  12. OMG! The Una and the Lion of Whiskeys..you are a very lucky chap...just hope one day you open it and drink it ...before it’s too late..don’t leave it for the kids!😂
  13. Good spot @Augustus1...who would have believed it..a dodgy antique dealer😂!
  14. ....and they are expensive😱..expect to pay about £40-50 each plus postage. I have a spare Perth one if you get stuck👍...from 2019 & 2020😃!
  15. Three to my knowledge...all floral privy’s from Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane EXPO’s I think 🤔 ...some pictures are on the Kookaburra Photo thread.
