  1. Thank you for posting this, I had a conversation with our insurers yesterday who confirmed anything over £2500 would be in breach of terms and conditions. Some dealers insurance was any parcel lost, the first £2500 would be paid by the Royal Mail the rest by the insurance company, obviously this is no longer valid and has to be covered wholly by the insurance company. I can see an increase in premiums for next years insurance.
  2. I remember being at the 1991 November London Coin Fair at The Cumberland Hotel in November while England were playing Australia in the World Cup Final at Twickenham . Like myself, I think a few of the dealers had recorded the match to watch when they got home. I managed to avoid all talk of the latest score, and then right at the end of the show, one of the organisers came on the tannoy and to everyone's shock told the final score. I think they thought they were just being helpful. England still have to get past the All blacks first, which as we all know won't be exactly easy.
  3. Hello, Unfortunately in my opinion and 30 years of dealing, they both look counterfeit on the photographs to me, the colour looks wrong, to pale yellow as does the definition.

  5. Hello Pete, Firstly, thank you for the welcome to the forum. In answer to your questions, generally I think it is by supply and demand and of course rarity. If all coin dealers are after a particular dated proof sovereign the majority will pay a lot higher price and work on a smaller margin if for example they can sell it that afternoon. If it is a date that they have a stack of,and are not selling at that time,the price that they offer will leave a lot bigger margin. As a dealer I always prefer people to tell me what they want for an item, so I can decide, if I have a load in
  6. Hello, I am a dealer who has been in the business for thirty years and has only just found the forum, it looks to have some interesting articles and points from people around the world. Kind regards, Neil.
