Mistakes we make C6d0cb10Just a bit of fun this- and an opportunity to look at my failures 🤣
I bought this case on Amazon (I had a gift voucher) for about £25.
Great stuff I can store 110 1oz coins over 5 trays, whoopy do!
Then I realise over 3 kilos in weight and the handle will probably fall off🤣🤣🤣
Anyway- lesson learned, but now I’ve just discussed I can’t find half my COA’s for the Germania’s in the top tray😞.
Still I’ve only been at it for 6 months so I’m allowed mistakes?
Anyhoo- anyone thinking you’ve made a mistake then just look at me👀👀👍👍

The case looks good, and that's a very nice collection - I see the Chestnut Leaf in there. I'm sure the handle will cope with three kilograms. If you're worried, test it by taking the trays out and putting in three or four bags of sugar. An ordinary carrier bag can cope with that, so your case should have no problems. Almost certainly not a mistake at all.

Thanks @The Cat's Mother 
Did you notice the Chesnut was in 2nd place?
Someone, not mentioning any names  @The Cat's Mother put me on to a supplier for the oak leaf. Yea…💙

I certainly did notice the placing of the Chestnut Leaf. I know I put you on to the Oak Leaf, but didn't realise you had got the Chestnut. Do you have any more money you would like me to spend for you? Just wait until you see  @Bobmcmuff 's Intaglio Mint rounds.

Thank you so much for thinking about spending my money. I don’t know what I’d do without you🤣. Unfortunately at the moment I’m selling the kids to buy the new Britannia for £30, so not a lot left after that. But hey - a big THANKS for everything up to now, really appreciated 👍

I love that case and I think you bought a excellent FIRST storage place. 

You can easily enjoy it and see what you are collecting. 

As you know I make custom boxes for when you have completed a set. Or if you want to focus on a set.. BUT that should not be your priority. 

I strongly suggest as time goes by you add a safe. Here is a link to a safe that my boys first bought with their own money. I do suggest buying the bigger one, but this will do perfectly fine. It is only because if you have doubles or duplicates you can then store them safely and away from anyone. And it is insurance friendly.

I've got mine nailed to the doorframes. Is that not the right thing to do?
