    G'day Folks,

    Some items that are more than a bit stunning, and again not seen often out "in the wild", on offer here this weekend ;) A heavy 18ct (111gm) solid gold necklace, a 1915 4 Ducat gold coin (restrike) in 18ct gold mount, an 18ct gold ring with a full Sovereign and an 18ct White and Yellow Gold "Infinity" Ring with 5 Diamonds...these are beautiful pieces and the pics really don't do them justice :D
    (the 2 * 18ct rings, that were listed earlier, have been cleaned and polished (at a cost of $45 each) :) ) and come with jewellry boxes too...

    Some of the WA Stackers (and a couple of our interstate Stackers too) have seen these pieces before but they don't get out much lol

    Time has come to let them go now though, reluctantly, so hoping to keep them in the Stacker community as they really are some sensational items :cool:

    Another 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 10th December...TONIGHT!!!

    As
    usual the "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish will be in play...

    Given the "Larger than usual" ticket price for some of these (well, the necklace 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 this fantastic piece!

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

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

    Gold price calculations - (Current Spot $1662.20 / 31.1 = ~$53.45/gm)

    Lot 1 - 18ct Gold Necklace, 111gms, Hallmarked "RB" & "750" - Reserve - $4400
    (111gms * $53.45) * 0.75 = $4, 449.71 total (AGW - 83.25gms)
    Total length - ~55cm (~54cm when clasped), ~7mm wide and ~4mm thick.
    *Interesting note on the provenance of this, it was purchased from Silver Stackers very own Gold Pelican a few years ago :cool: *
    18ct Chain 02.jpg 18ct Chain 03.jpg
    An almost identical one here at Sarrafs for $7116USD ($9481.71AUD) - RRP $24,906USD ($33,175AUD!!)

    Lot 2 - 1915 Austrian 4 Ducat Gold Coin in 18ct Gold Mount - - Reserve $950!!
    Pendant total weight 25gms (Ducat details - 13.9636gms 0.986 Fineness gold (AGW 0.443oz * $1662.20 = $736.35)) + 11gms (18ct - $53.45 * 11 = $374.15 * .750 = $280.60) = $1016.95
    * Note - The necklace loop has been changed to allow it to fit the chain above..makes a spectacular set :cool:

    Lot 3 - 18ct Gold Mens Ring w/ 1914 Full Sovereign (Hallmarked - "750") - Reserve $650!!

    Not sure of actual ring size but measures~20mm internally :) (more of a Pinky ring but may go to a ring finger size on a smaller hand ;) )
    Also had a PM regarding Lot 3 and that measure ~22-23mm (good fit for a middle finger rather than a pinky ring :) )

    Just got a PM which asked for a clarification which is a good point about Lot 2 (the Ducat in 18ct pendant) :)
    The coin mounts are pressed rather than soldered, meaning the coin hasn't been soldered so is still basically intact (undamaged)
    Stunning piece and very high quality mount :cool:
