  2. The gold George-and–the-Dragon Sovereign is internationally collected. The series was struck in England, Australia, Canada, India and South Africa. According to the mintage figures, of the 719 SA Sovereigns struck for 1923, only 64 were struck as non-proofs making it one of the most desirable coins in the whole series. The SA 1924 date is also very scarce with only 3184 struck, but the non-proof 1923 issue is very rare coin with only 12 graded by the NGC. Here Is my problem – of the 12 graded, more than half have been graded as in less than Mint State (uncirculated) condition, the lowest being in XF condition (VF in the “old” terms thus) Could these coins be details-proofs – proof coins that were roughly handled or actually got into circulation by mistake? We have asked the question before on this forum, but at what grade (stage of circulation) would it be impossible to differentiate anymore with certainty between a proof coin that got into circulation and a non-proof coin? I have seen a 1949 Shilling in VF condition and only proofs were struck that year. If an XF (non-proof) 1923 SA Sovereign should come up for auction in the future, I will probably ignore it – the chances of it being an ex-proof (and not a non-proof) is really high.

  4. Hi all Due to the economic situation caused by COVID19, I decided to unpack my Grandfathers belongings from storage and came across a bunch of stuff. I posted in the other section of the forums regarding coins I had found and lots of kind users were able to help me in that area. I found quite a lot of stamps and 1st day covers but I am unsure if these are valuable and how I would go about finding out their worth or what to do with them? Apologies for my lack of knowledge in this area but can anyone me if these are worth anything and how I would go about finding out more? Here are a few, the rest I put up on Flickr if you all don't mind taking a look please. https://www.flickr.com/photos/191225980@N08/ Thanks all, very much appreciated.

  21. Ja well, like I have said numerous times before, the day the Penny finally drop at BoB Headquarters, it will probably be too late. But as long as the old functional format is still available, we will all be able to keep limping along ... Unfortunately, the day the old site is cut off, it will all probably be over for many top-sellers like me. Pierre_Henri29135 100.00% Positive Ratings Joined 10 Jun 2009 Cape Town
  22. I revert back to the old format all the time. There are a number of issues that seem to have retrogressed not progressed. If I wanted to log out "log out " was right there on top visible but now we have to find it in a drop down menu like a number of other links like refine etc It is so frustrating and time consuming. The page to upload was all in one,now we have 3 or 4 with the links all over the place UGH!!! This new format must have been developed by a guy who got paid to mess it up by some rival online website. I detest it. Bidorbuy make no effort to communicate with users or address our concerns.☹️
  23. It is unbelievable why a successful company like BidorBuy a few years ago, would jeopardize their future by introduce a new look/outlay that less than 10% of their user like. What is even more unbelievable, is that their management must see day-by-day how their earnings have dropped dramatically. Covid19 could be seen as the scrape goat - but as we all know - it is not the problem. The new site is the problem. How many voices must go up before someone somewhere see the problem going on?

    12 Negative Ratings but you cannot see them...

    Surely Bidorbuy has grown enough to not need buyers and sellers who have a string of negatative ratings that give Bidorbuy a bad name Ebay would have suspended the accounts of some buyers on Bidorbuy long ago It seems a good reputation does not matter to them.

    So if you don't pay for your sex toys or whatever discreet things you bought, you will have no problems regarding your negative payment record? Carry on sad sack ....... https://old.bidorbuy.co.za/user/3831549/ReyMul9138

    12 Negative Ratings but you cannot see them...

    Let me explain as it seems that no-one else bothers to explain this. The user you are referring to is not a seller, he is a buyer. On a seller's ratings profile, negative ratings are indeed shown but with the buyer's name replaced with the D symbol showing that it was a discreet item. All sales ratings are shown, regardless if the ratings are positive, neutral or negative. However, no ratings for purchased are shown on a buyer's profile if the purchase was for a discreet item. This is true for positive, neutral or negative ratings. They show as a number in the ratings count, but no information about the rating is shown in the detailed ratings section. This is to prevent discreet items from showing on a buyer's purchase profile. For example, let's say a buyer purchases an adult rated product, this is obviously a discreet product and the buyer does not want anyone who views his/her profile to see that this has been purchased. Therefore the rating given by the seller to the buyer only shows in the numerical stats and no detailed rating is shown. The rating given by the buyer to the seller is still shown on the seller's profile with the product details but with the buyer's name hidden. Hope that makes sense to you and explains why certain negative (or indeed positive, neutral) ratings are not shown.
  28. Pierre, with only 29,000 ratings you have no idea what you are talking about, the Bidorbuy team who quite clearly neither use the platform nor test their development releases know better than you. The issues is it looks like they wanted to get "fancy" and make a "unified platform" that works equally bad on desktop browser, mobile and app - they achieved the own goal!! So they took what was a perfectly workable website, dumbed it down and called it a day. From what I have heard is there is an enormous disconnect between the developers and the users, the developers couldn't give 2 shts what the users think, which is rather ironic and unfortunate and hence we sit where we do today.
