Anyone else waiting for the Arts Council England to open for Timeline auction to send coins?

    I won several wonderful lots from Timeline auctions Feb 25 auction and my winnings still cannot be shipped.


    I've purchased from Timeline one other time and was very happy. Though they do make you wait an additional couple weeks while they get all the customs junk taken care of via the Arts Council England after the auction (I wonder why not all English auction houses make you wait?).


    I certainly appreciate that England is one of the few countries that has mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic as poorly as we have in the United states. So, I certainly understand the caution and hope they are able to minimize risks while restoring their shattered economy...
    but dang! It's almost June and I haven't heard anything from them since I last checked in in April!


    Not sure if I'm looking for commiseration or just reassurance that I will, someday, see those lots?

    To keep it legit, here are a couple of the beauties that I'm waiting on:


    LOT.3774 Ancient Roman Republican Coins - P Sulpicius Galba - Emblems Denarius

    LOT.3989 English Medieval Coins - Henry V - London - Long Cross Halfpenny

    Anyone else waiting for their wins from Timeline or extended times for coins? Or just want to say, "it's okay Ryro. Even if their not shipping your coins at least they are still shipping scotch!"

    "It' ok @Ryro"

    Ok, I said that.

    Your Galba is GREAT!

    Here is the IMPORTANT point:

    Um, yeah!!! Elixir of Life...

    Love Timeline, got several Ancients from them.

    Ramesses II /ˈræməsiːz, ˈræmsiːz, ˈræmziːz/ (variously spelled also Rameses[5] or Ramses;[6] born c. 1303 BCE; died July or August 1213 BCE; reigned 1279–1213[7] BCE), also known as Ramesses the Great, was the third pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Egypt. He is often regarded as the greatest, most celebrated, and most powerful pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire.[8] His successors and later Egyptians called him the "Great Ancestor". He is known as Ozymandias in the Greek sources,[9] from a transliteration into Greekof a part of Ramesses' throne name, Usermaatre Setepenre, "The justice of is powerful—chosen of Rê".[10]

    Ramesses II led several military expeditions into the Levant, reasserting Egyptian control over Canaan. He also led expeditions to the south, into Nubia, commemorated in inscriptions at Beit el-Wali and Gerf Hussein. The early part of his reign was focused on building cities, temples, and monuments. He established the city of Pi-Ramesses in the Nile Delta as his new capital and used it as the main base for his campaigns in Syria.

    Congrats on the wins from Timeline @Ryro I really like your Henry V halfpenny. By the time the Lancaster were minting them, halfpennies were starting to get quite small.

    I can commiserate with you. Back at the begining of March I purchased a penny that I had been searching after for a couple of years and it took all of two months to arrive, and that was without the Arts Council being involved. Of the 3 orders from England I have placed since COVID, the one order that went through the Arts Council was 9 weeks. The seller said they have been hard hit, like everyone else, and are taking much longer.

    Have faith, they will show up!

    Thanks for the reassurance. And how saweet is that RR Galba!? Looks so surreal.
    And you are correct, they are known more for their reliably legit artifacts then coins. I posted it here a while ago, but here is the artifact I'm soexcited about just sitting in an English warehouse
