    Love those 5 oz Libertads!

    Did those coins come with any capsules? Protective airtites? Or just sleeves/pockets?

    Wanted to get some of these for a while. Exceeded my expectations. It has made it realise how hard it is to take really good photos of coins.

    I can read the cyrillic, the first word is year and the second word is pronounced kanya on the top one. What language are they in? The bottom one looks like it might be Ukranian due to the letter "I" at the end.

    Produced by the Polish Mint for Belarus. Lunar series. These are the first two years. Sorry the capsules are a little scratched and I never remove coins.

    Later years have much lower numbers and resellers want too much for them. Of course there is also GST to contend with. I would like a set but I can’t see me paying that much to collect it.

    The “Second” smidgeon

    bought at the Silver stackers national meeting. A very enjoyable evening. Thanks to all the organizers and sponsors.

    Cool. Noticed that smidgeon 2 and 3 are pictured with original ‘mint’ packaging purple paper. Nice.

    There are only two more from the first batch. The Melbourne meet will be the only chance to bag Smidgeon #4.

    Very nice!

    I've got a variety of Libertards (that I bought off Spacepete) and I think they are one of the best looking coins.

    I've now got the :
    2013 4 Coin BU/Proof Libertad set
    2013 5 Coin Proof Libertad set
    2014 7 Coin Proof Libertad set
    2015 7 Coin Proof Libertad set
    2016 7 Coin Proof Libertad set
    2017 7 Coin Proof Libertad set
    2019 7 Coin Proof Libertad set

    But I'm trying to reduce space so looking to sell them at some point. So contact me if you're a genuine buyer, will sell cheaper than eBay but not desperate firesale prices. Would also do a value swap for 10oz/kg PM bars.

    Junk Silver, King George IV teaspoons, nearly 200 years old.

    I'm not really into buying junk silver but I was running out of teaspoons.

    It'll be interesting to see who's the first person to notice what they're using when we have people around for a cuppa. It'll make for a good talking point.

    What do those stamps represent on the spoons?

    Some spoons have symbols that represent the country from which they come from (France, Sweden etc.).

    If your refering to the L+W then at this stage yoir guess is as good as mine.

    Possibly the initials of the person or couple that the spoons were stolen from by light fingered servant sometime in the 18th century.
