    Firstly, if you read correctly i said some seller on BOB are still charging R99 for shipping, nowhere did i say it was less than R99 Secondly, it was one package. two bags, one inside the other. One whole package under 1kg, from the same seller, at the same time together. (not sure how else to exp[lain this. If you condone the charge of R220 for these items (as i have received), then that is your right, i was never telling you cannot charge what you want to charge, i was merely stating that sellers are making profit off postage. You are correct that i should have checked the shipping before the time, that was my mistake, will not do that again. In saying that, you are giving sellers the right to charge what ever they want IF they get away with it? Shifting the blame is taking from the wrong doing that is happening.

    Looking at the metal content of south african "coppers" it's clear that prior to 1942 these coins had a much higher content of tin , therefore making them bronze coinage ( Copper 0.955, Tin 0.030, Zinc 0.015 ) after 1942 much less tin ( Copper 0.950, Tin 0.005, Zinc 0.045 ) and prior to 1937 bronze coinage was "blackened" by the mint.

    In the following picture, two coins are shown graded BN (Brown) by the NGC – the top one looks more black to me than brown, but it seems the NGC does not differentiate between black and brown: - notice the absence of lustre on both coins. In the following picture, two of the three coins are graded Red Brown (RB) and one is graded Red (RD) – it is hardly worth saying that there is actually no difference between the colors of the coins. The one on the left is according to the NGC a “red” coin – how they come to that conclusion is beyond me. In the following picture there is a very clear difference between a red and a red-brown coin – both Pennies dated 1960. The one on the left was graded by SANGS who seems to get the color right here whilst the NGC simply loses it. Overall, in my opinion, and I have said it before, the whole color grading system by the grading companies is just a money making racket. The more different colors they can grade, the more “varieties” there are to collect by collectors of slabbed coins willing to fill their coffers.

    And that is exactly the point, how can any one culture, or nation disregard the past. In our case, from pre-colonisation to colonisation, from concentration camps to apartheid to now. All of these events are portrayed by way of collectables, be it coins, beads, art , or vuvuzela's. The current mood of wanting to ban everything to do with colonialism and apartheid is naive. The next generation may not be interested in collecting pre 1994 items, but why deny them these items if someday they prefer to collect them. P.S. Judging by testrarossa's post, it might be the only thing left to collect, as that R5 vault looks like a hot one in Dubai.

    PayPal is very convenient for buyers but can be a nightmare for sellers. I would recommend the following two payment gateways: Skrill (formally MoneyBookers) - http://www.skrill.com PayFast - http://www.payfast.co.za Both are easy to use and setup, easy for buyers to make payments, and offer exceptional protection for both buyers and sellers.
