  1. Still hunting people! Bring the forrest!
  2. Ladies and gentlemen! I am quite fond of trees! So fond of trees in fact I have a tree tattooed on my forearm I also come from a wood covered county and now live in Sweden's second largest city and I miss the forrest (no concrete trees will ever compete...) and therefore I would like to create a forrest of my own So! If you sit in a spare coin with a tree on it, please send me any offers for coins with trees from any country and shipping to Sweden and I'll consider them Precious metal as well as non precious metal. Anything and any year is of interest US quarter from Connecticut especially interesting (see picture). So... Knock on wood! Best Regards Fredrik a.k.a Schnitzel
  3. 6 pounds for all 7 or for one? I am interested and I'll send you a message
  4. Finally it's here It took almost twice as long travelling around inside Sweden from one end of the country to the other for no apparent reason before it could be collected than it took to cross the Atlantic Ocean, but now it's here! Thank you @Lr103 and thank you for your patience with the Swedish Postal services taking their time delivering This one shall receive a special place in my collection next to the other gold coins
  5. Still nothing from Swedish postal services and package seems to be lost. I have made a reclamation to the postal services as the package was insured (good thing!). Still to hear from them but most likely I will send another package when I get home efter new years.
  6. Thank you for your quick response! I will give it some further thought but quite interested I can tell you
  7. Is the shipping domestic or within Europe? To Sweden for example
  8. If I'm not completely mistaken that is a Polish coin. Then the figure is Hedwig of Silesia. Or Jadwiga in Polish I have a few silver coins from Poland with that design and they are beautiful even if worn. Hedvig is also the name of my great grand mother who past away many years ago. More reading of Hedwig here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedwig_of_Silesia
  9. That reminds me on who ever it was that said something like "Why do they spell dyslexia with x and lisp with s?".
  10. I'm curious how this will develop! Covfefe everybody and a merry apple!
  11. Nah, all UK's brussels sprouts are spread all over Fife, remember Made the news even in Sweden haha
  12. @Bullionbilly Just to let you know, Package was handed in on dec 4th in Gothenburg, Sweden, on it's way to UK and PansPurse, the only notification from the tracking number is that "it's o its way" on Dec 6th, after that awfully quiet... I have had correspondence with PansPurse and as of a few days ago it hadn't arrived. I will make inquiries to the Swedish postal services, Postnord (also known as postmord ((post murder))...) on Monday as it's been almost three weeks and even Postnord ain't that bad... It has a tracking number and is insured so we'll get it sorted and if it comes to that point I will of course send new coins. Just so you know that all shipping isn't going all too well which is sad. I am however very impressed and glad that you took it upon yourself to do this once more! Thank you!
  13. Quick as can be! I am overwhelmed! I look forward to collecting it
  14. That no one cares is a bit steep. The question arises in Sweden among politicians to make Sweden a republic from time to time, but the Royal family sits strong in Sweden. We have a representative monarchy that means the King has no real power any longer and is more a ceremonial head of state. Our King has been on the throne for quite some time as well, since 1973 (nothing like QEII though with 21 more years) and some people want her eldest child, Victoria to take over. But we'll see. I myself represent a party that is mainly for republic but I stand with the Royal family I like them! One really ironic thing is that the Queen, Silvia, has become a real symbol of Sweden, and she's from Germany haha Ohh the irony hehe
  15. @Bullionbilly I seem to be in the list twice? Both as nr 9 (which happens to be both a favourite and lucky number) and 62? Even if I wouldn't mind being in the list twice for all the nice prices I think you can cross me out on 62 and keep no 9
  16. I have been digging through the Swedish silver treasure chest and pulled out a few coins Representing three monarchs and totalling of 2,5 oz of fine silver if you calculate the total weight and the silver contents Hope whoever will be pleased I don't know which is most fun... Winning, sending or digging my treasure chest haha!
  17. Don't worry about that I have nothing to do with them and the Swedish mint havn't existed for years... All our latest coins were made in Finland and the Netherlands... **sob**
  18. OMG! Lindt mints?????????? Never even knew they exited!!! I'm way to fat than I need and want to be but I need to visit the Lindt outlet in Kungbacka now
  19. Ohhh lovely! I'm definitely in! As last year I'l chip in an assorted lot of old Swedish silver coins ranging from 40 to 80% silver
  20. Fake silver is tricky from time to time... I just yesterday found out that a Spanish 20 reales 1894 that I purchased veeeery early in my collecting days have turned out fake. πŸ˜› Failed the magnet test as it slid of faster then I placed it almost and ways a full five (5!!!) grams less than it should πŸ˜› On the positive note, it's the only fake I found in my collection so far So this forum is good as it was here I learned to look for fakes
  21. Seems to be Calcutta mint as there is no mintmark that I can see. I am however notoriously bad at judging fakes and what not... But doesn't it seem rather weakly struck the ARD VII in the name and G & EM in KING AND EMPEROR but not the rim on the same places? Other than that I would suggest it's been cleaned by the looks of it... But there are likely others knowing this better
