  1. Looks to me like one less in coin in PF70 eligible pool of coins.... 😁
  2. Not sure, but in the photos both coins seem to have a "pimple" between the horse's front legs in the exact same location, which could indicate a concern. There may be other similarities as well, a bit hard to see.
  3. Can confirm the 7th Feb, now that the cat is out of the bag 😉 @paulmertonThe First Rule of the Secret Squirrel Club is.... 😅
  4. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10434973/Metal-detectorist-nets-648k-finding-one-Englands-gold-coins-Devon-field.html A metal detectorist who found England's 'first ever gold coin' is celebrating after it sold for a world record £648,000. Michael Leigh-Mallory unearthed the coin on his first metal detecting outing in 10 years on farmland in Hemyock, Devon, last September. -- It achieved a hammer price of £540,000, with extra fees taking the final figure paid by a private British buyer in the room to £648,000. -- The finder will split the proceeds 50/50 with the landowner. It is believed that he will spend his fortune towards his children's future. The winning bidder intends to loan the coin to a museum or institution. It is a world record for a Henry III coin, and also the most valuable Medieval English coin ever sold at auction. -- Gregory Edmund, specialist at Spink & Son, said: 'Not only does this now stand as the most valuable single coin find in British history, but also the most valuable Medieval English coin ever sold at auction. 'Unsurprisingly therefore it eclipsed our old house record to fall for an incredible £540,000 (£648,000 including costs) to a private room buyer. 'It was bought by an anonymous private buyer resident in the United Kingdom who intends to place the coin on loan to a public institution or museum. 'The vendor and landowner were both in awe of the result.'
  5. You're too kind @richatthecroft All I know is the market in Asia for these seems quite hot still, see e.g., prices from Spink China auctions. Heritage and Stacks Bowers are also potential references. Toned examples seem to command a hefty premium compared to flash white ones. They're fickly beasts these - as @sovereignsteve very pertinently flags there are so many fakes around, better see and weigh them with own eyes before making costly mistakes. Many more are cleaned, too. Note that chop marks may get you details grade at PCGS, here's one example.
  6. Seems Heritage has made an error on the listing blurbs. The images are correct and the slabs show PF as they should. 🤷‍♂️
  7. https://coins.ha.com/itm/great-britain/elizabeth-ii-gold-proof-gothic-crown-quartered-arms-200-pounds-2-oz-2021-pr70-ultra-cameo-ngc-/a/232203-63530.s?ic16=ViewItem-BrowseTabs-Auction-Open-ThisAuction-120115 Currently sitting at $8'400 incl. premium (GBP6'160), 14 hours to go or so... It does look gorgeous.
  8. That's an interesting development - my initial thought is they'll be drowning in coins sent to the Marketplace, but then again, it's not their problem to be holding tons of coins if they have suitable premises and insurance. A very interesting newsletter overall.
  9. The more there are finger marked ones the better for those who are still holding these for grading. I wish more people would fondle their Gothics after eating fish 'n' chips for lunch... 🎣 😋
  10. Speaking of top notch.... A gold 1935 Proof NGC PF66 Ultra Cameo just sold a few days ago for about GBP135'000.
  11. Awesome find and he gets to keep the proceeds if I read that correctly. Is that a rush of optimistic detectors approaching Devon that I hear.... 😅 Anyone wishing to bid on that penny head to Spink https://campaigns.spink.com/t/i-D8A4C2A28F4F80F62540EF23F30FEDED
  12. I suppose it's a balancing act as @SilverMike suggests... the more well-known auction houses get more eye-balls looking at your lot and therefore, in theory, more potential buyers <globally>. Some coins could achieve a better result for you in TCC, some in SovereignRarities for example, regardless of their respective fee structures. Certain auction houses seem to have consistently a lower clearance rate than others. Good luck.
  13. A rise in rents and other accommodation costs and prices for used vehicles were the “largest contributors” to December’s increase, according to the BLS. Since December 2020, those expenses have increased 4.1 per cent. Used car prices continued to zoom higher, increasing 3.5 per cent from the previous month, and nearly 40 per cent from a year ago. Energy prices fell 0.4 per cent from November — the first decline in months — and gasoline prices dipped as well. Food prices also contributed once again to the historically high figures. Dining out costs rose 0.6 per cent from a month ago, a 6 per cent year-on-year increase and the largest rise since January 1982. The broader food index was up 0.5 per cent, a more modest pace than the previous period. The cost of apparel, household furnishings and medical care also rose. -- The US stock market opened higher, as investors digested data that appeared to keep the Fed on track for four quarter-point rate increases this year. https://www.ft.com/content/b90f59e1-79c2-403d-94a9-776555c541fc
