    Uping my bid to 22.50
  2. Very nice. No idea on price —-
  3. Can’t wait to see them. Thanks.
  4. Sounds like a great idea. I haven’t gotten anything in years and am kept quite busy each day between Congregation Duties and mu Grandson who I love to see on every possible occasion.
  5. You might want to send it to one of your friends at a company you trust and deal with for a quick look. If it is counterfeit it probably is known as such as no counterfeiters produced low quantities. Profit was in the sale of lots of them.
  6. Very nice writeup and pictures.
  7. We used to have a collector here who specialized in sovereigns. Unfortunately he passed away about 7 years ago.
  8. I had always wanted to get one of these for my wife’s charm bracelet. Never did.
  9. Hello and welcome. I reviewed your posts and think you will be a most welcome addition to the site. Nice posts and coins. Art
  10. Pretty note. I don’t have one to compare the color. Sorry.
  11. But you must admit cows are much nicer than what you may have thought.
  12. Cow is a very good word and is often considered family appropriate.
  13. Many of the coin supply companies have a variety of pages to choose from. Of course, acid free is the most important thing, to me anyway. I cannot recall the name of the pages I used to use. They were actually designed to store photographic slides. More expensive but only slightly so. Found a good source on ebay. This is like years ago and I don’t recall names any longer. Sorry.

    Very nice!
  15. Sounds like fun. I hope you all enjoy!
  16. The expense in making dies is one of the factors that cause minimum order quantities. You may just want to try a local jeweler who has a good rep for engraving. I have seen and held several dollar sized silver coins that were stripped clean of design on one side and re-engraved. I’m sure the same could be done with gold.
  17. Great collection of elongates. I really like these.

    Nice coin Colin. Enjoy it!
  19. So I have this fireproof box and I haven’t opened it in a long long time. I’m thinking like maybe 10 years or more. As I recall it is mostly foreign coins. Nothing of value but stuff that I liked and stuck away for my collection but never did anything with . I do recall getting some rolls of like 2.5 Euro coins and placing them in there. I don’t recall the exact details but they were from Sweden (I think). I think there’s a few baggies in there of really crumby shape English Large Cents, the kind you used to see at coin shows for $2.00 or $2.50 a bag. So when I get to it, I’ll post a picture of the box and if I can find the key for it, I’ll actually open it and tell you what’s in there. If I can’t find the key, I’ll post the box locked picture and we can all speculate about the contents. I hope you enjoy this little exercise in the unknown and my attempt at posting something interesting outside of the Asylum. Pics to come.
  20. Meanwhile I have downloaded the GooglePay app so I’ll have ApplePay and GooglePay on my phone - at least. Not sure if I need them on my tablets but ApplePay is there anyway. So I can add GooglePay as well. I have my bank’s mobile app and use it to check balances and move things around, make payments and such but cannot see anything like ApplePay there.
