  7. Agree cleaning is a very difficult area…
  8. Great to hear. I agree cotton gloves are truly awful and I never use them. I see videos of people using them to handle slabs and can never understand why. You’re much more likely to drop the slabs with gloves on. I don’t think there is a solution with capsules, they have a use but not sure they’ll ever come up with a satisfactory option even polarised. Same issue with slabs. Once in, the condition of proof coins is really difficult to assess. You can never tell if the hairlines and marks are on the coin or slab. Good luck with the sale lovely coin and good price.
  9. Great video and these are lovely coins with a stunning design. I’m sure you know this but it’s quite impossible to assess the condition of a modern gold proof coin through a plastic capsule. The only way is to remove the top of the capsule and check with at least 3x magnification, then turn it over and do the same with the reverse. Good luck with the sale great price.
  10. Many thanks. Fakes will be the most difficult to get to grips with I guess as with Sovereigns it comes down to experience and handling to build the knowledge.
