    G'day Folks,

    Happy New Year to all for 2018 :D Hope it's been good so far for everyone :cool:

    On offer this time around, to kick off the New Year, are some very nice 9ct Gold (.375) jewellry pieces...3 * Necklaces and a Bracelet :)

    Chains 01.jpg

    Valentines Day coming up soon so maybe a gift for someone special or something special for yourself ;)

    Once again (and still an interesting point for consideration) with regards to "stacking" jewellry, is that it is easy to transport (if you need to "bug out") and in a possible "confiscation scenario" jewellry is safe from govmint theft :rolleyes:

    Auction finish starting at 18:00 WST (20:30 SA / 21:00 EDST/ 20:00 Qld) - Sunday 14th January...TONIGHT!!!

    ALL Lots finishing at the same time!!
    *With the usual "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish for each particular Lot (Forum Timestamp used) *

    Any valid bid for a particular Lot extends the Finish for ALL Lots!!
    ie. The Auction will be Officially over once ALL bids have finished!!


    Given the "Larger than usual" ticket price for some of these (well, 2 of the necklaces at least ;) ), and being aware some might not like to make their purchases known, in this instance I'll open this up to PM bids as well...and as a special offer, to see if some of our newly minted "Bitcoin Millionaires" are interested in exchanging some of their new-found wealth for some old-school goodies, I'll also accept Bitcoin payment for the winning amount (at the going exchange rate at the Auction finish on Coinbase :D) as well as the usual bank transfer or f2f transactions...


    *No edited Bids, please :) the Forum does indicate "edited" when posts are edited (look above the "Quote Reply" right hand side) so if you make a bid and it turns out the same or lower than a previous bid please place a new post for the bid to make it higher rather than "edit" the post with the unsuccessful bid - although editing to clarify a Lot # is fine :oops: *


    Due to no "seconds" showing on Forum timeclock any duplicate bids with the same timestamp will be "first in line" gets the spot ;)

    BELOW SPOT RESERVE - Highest bid over Reserve price will be the winner of these fantastic pieces!

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage...)

    And without further ado, on to the Auction...

    Gold price calculations - (Current Spot ~$1687 (it's slightly higher but this is a "Below Spot Reserve" Auction ;) ) - $1687 / 31.1 = ~$54/gm * 0.375 for 9 carat - $20/gm
    *Note - There's 3 "rounding downs" there so definitely "Below Spot Reserve" on these :D *


    Lot 1 - 9ct Heavy Gold Italian Necklace Curb Link(?), 52gms, Hallmarked "375" - Reserve - $1040
    Total length - ~57cm, ~7mm wide and ~2mm thick (Sturdy Parrot Clasp integral to chain).
    AGW - 0.6269oz / Current Spot Value - $1059.65
    *Note - An eagle-eyed Stacker has noted that this is actually an Italian chain and the Hallmark is for Unoaerre of Italy *

    1 9ct Necklace 01.jpg 1 9ct Necklace 03.jpg

    Lot 2 - 9ct Heavy Gold Italian Necklace Figaro Link, 40gms, (Hallmarked "9KT" & "ITALY") - Reserve - $800 Now - $785!! (That's ~$30 under Spot value!!)
