    Your Ugliest Coin?

    Now,now now! The proof is in the minting, although?
  2. Too true! I don’t know about England or other European countries but Burglars here are on the rampage. I have one or the other in my Safe at Home which I take out & admire. Would love to buy a display cabinet but wishful thinking! Regards & Take Care
  3. Thanks for your comments. It’s not the only reason why but also the principle of the matter as @CollectorNo1stated. For 1, 2 or 3 Coins OK but the full set? Not really convinced. A Courier service would be around €25,00 peanuts compared with travel costs. München being the next NGC Office about 600 Km away but would be a nice weekend trip though if it wasn’t for COVID-19. Regards & Stay Safe
  4. No not planning on selling them in the foreseeable future. I started collecting the series because I was fascinated by & admiring such beautiful Coins. I’d hoped, (I’ve started so I’ll finish) to get the full set. Wasn’t easy but got there somehow. Not much admiring them now though too scared of burgles etc.
  5. That’s one of my main worries. If The Completer eg. did get lost or somehow disappeared you’d only get the insurance money back. No replacement (I’d have to purchase for double the price I paid for this one) just the insurance! I have lost stuff (disappeared) with DHL before so I’d use a Courier. costly but peace of mind. Take Care & Regards
  6. My thoughts exactly but „What a difference a Grade makes“!
  7. I have acquired all of the Queens Beasts 1 oz Gold Proof Coins of which I am very proud and lucky to possess. I would be very interested to know if anyone else on TSF has the same and has them all Graded? I’ve asked on two other Topics in the forum but sadly no response. I’m in two minds about grading when it comes to Rare Coins! I enjoy them in the presentation box they come with what a beautiful sight. I understand that Collectors only buy the best and from a buyers point of view quite rightly so but given there are only, at the most 380 Sets Worldwide buyers haven’t got that much of a choice anyway! Food for thought. If Grading then I’d go for The Completer which really isn’t part of the Set but a complimentary Coin which I think is the most stunning of the whole series. Any thoughts advice or Pro + Contra about Grading would be most welcome. Stay Safe y,all Regards and greetings from rainy old Germany Howie
  8. Hi @Bixley good morning, thanks for your comments. I purchased the Stands from eBay Germany. https://www.ebay.de/itm/5-Stueck-Muenzstaender-Muenzaufsteller-Kapselstaender-farblos-fuer-1-Oz-Muenzen-/401701143657?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=707-127634-2357-0 they are the only ones I’ve seen in that frosted glass look. I’m not too sure if you’ll understand them though, (all in German) but you can at least send them an eMail & ask for a quote. I got 20 pieces for €8,80 + P&P. If you need any help, interpreting etc don’t hesitate to ask. Stay Safe and Regards from rainy Germany Howie
  9. QB,s 1 oz Gold Proof Full set + Completer. Was wondering if anyone else here on TSF has the complete set and had them graded? Any advice on grading would be most appreciated. @Spanishsilverhas recommended grading from a sellers point of view but I am still undecided. Regards and Stay Safe u all. Howie
  10. Nothing wrong with the camera. Great collection.
  11. @HeirloomsJust my iPhone 11 in Portrait mode using the different lighting effects. For example Stage Spotlight. Regards and Stay Safe
  12. It’s the only one I’ve seen. Regards
  13. Hi FlorinCollector, that would seem to be the next logical step but I have always been sceptical of grading! I think I’ll go with the „Completer“ first then decide if the whole set will follow or not. Regards Stay Safe.
