    After doing some research die No 23 hasn't been recorded yet so I guess it is "rare". Coin looks authentic to me and weights just under 8 grams as it should. I didn't even pay attention to the die mark until I got home. I just knew the scrap value alone was close to $300.

    Got to love garage sale season. Picked up just under 30 oz of sterling silver for $16.

    It's a little trick, which isn't working yet at least.

    Someone might see "25 sold" and think it's a good deal, "hey other people are doing it," unless they click on it and see those 25 orders were at less than half the price listed now.

    Now this is an instance where someone's Seller rating being only 347 would matter. If I had that kind of money to spend on metals, I'd be making the purchase in person, at a brick and mortar more than likely. When and if metals go meteoric, there is going to be fraud galore all over the place!

    Yes what's crazy is a normal person would want a discount off of what a reputable dealer would charge to buy the comparable item on ebay. Personally I just can't make the leap of faith to buy gold there but I suppose if there were a 10-20% discount off of a dealer price I could be enticed to nibble at some silver on bay.

    I haven't purchased any PMs in a while, but got what I thought was a pretty good snag this morning from a friend who shared a deal that he got. I bought a roll of peace dollars for $16.50 each. They're about evenly divided between '22s and '23s (with one '26), averaging F condition.

    Even at $20 over melt it's a common $300 sovereign at best. ;)
    1925 it could even be a restrike coin.

    :2 thumbs up:
    IMO the 2013 I Sovereign is a great and historic coin to have, the same coin is $525 on a***x right now.

    The beautiful Indian Sovereign
    In 2013 we announced that our flagship coin, the golden Sovereign, would be struck in India for the first time in almost a century. They were to be struck to the same exacting standards as every Sovereign struck here in the UK – using tooling supplied by The Royal Mint and overseen by our own personnel. But they have not been available outside India – until now.

    Product Details
    This 2013 Gold Sovereign was struck in India for the first time in 95 years! In 1918, the Bombay mint struck sovereigns for the only time in its history. Now collectors can obtain a 2013 Sovereign struck in Delhi using dies supplied by the Royal Mint.

    Yeah, I've been waiting for some feedback on this guy. I've had a dialog with him and have been waiting for someone to post this type of feedback on condition. I pulled the trigger on 'several' after reading this so thanks!

    He sent it in the airtite I took it out to weigh it and put it back. I was his first sov buyer so he asked me if I wanted any particular date.
    I did and he sent it. ;)

    I picked up a half dozen (two transactions of three apiece to maximize the ebucks offer).

    He sent me an email almost immediately thanking me and asking me if I preferred pre 1932 or post 1957 coins. I told him as long as they weren't overly worn I would be happy with the pre 1932 but would take a good mix of whatever he's got. He said he would send one from 1914 and a good representative mix of the others. Seems like a decent guy

    I'm glad he is consistent I bought another one earlier today. I just get standard ebucks but the 2.1% topcashback helped too!
