    Did anyone else see that wee report on BBC Newsline earlier about selling ur scrap gold? And they showed a few wee bracelets and things in her hand, and Enlanders were offering her 350 for it all...?

    Has anyone actually done this, know roughly what to expect, who's best to flog it to, etc.?

    hmm, that doesn't sound very good at all, going by my calculations on the price of a troy ounce of gold and what u should expect to get, based on the few articles I read.

    I shall sail the seven seas (walk around town) with a bottle of rum (or a fudge brownie Frijj) and see what the land-lovers (jewelers) will offer me for my gold bullion. (gold bullion)

    So basically what I found out is, that lots of people will try and really shaft you by paying 5 a gram for you 9ct gold, but Reas offered me 6 a gram.

    However, by far the best option was to send it to London, specifically Hattongardenmetals.com, who currently will give you nearly 7.30 per gram of 9ct gold.

    I was skeptical about posting it at first but now I'm glad I did 'cos I made substantially more than if I'd sold it locally. You can send it special delivery and ask for it to be covered to the max compensation amount (2500). Also, special delivery is still guaranteed next day by 1pm even with a strike on, which was nice to know.
