Re: Gold/Silver Ratio

Chris brings up a major point-unbenounced to him probally= the real pros have been pondering the ratio validity for some yrs, and no one seems to have a decent answer. I think it can be used as a guide however even though were off the gold standard and using fiat currency, which IMHO will likely bit...

Re: Illinois Set?

I really feel for most of these Set chaser guys, as relating to the financial blood baths many have taken or about to, as price values have taken huge hits. Today we see many sets being broken up and sold, along with the many aspiring dreams of the astuit collector. Early on, I thought sets a great ...

O/T POOR SILVER THE LONG AND SHORT STORY

During these trying times its a wonder that the metals markets have kept from being decimated like the crude oil mess. Luckily Gold has kept the metals trying to shine, but stagnated in a pile of crap. Between transportation problems from mines to refiners, as well as shuttered Mint Facilities, its ...

Re: Zero Inventory

Every dealer in country is experiencing the same dilema, as inventory is scarce as hens teeth, and premiums running $5-$8 over spot depending on which silver product. Just another scare tactic, screw the consumer/public But the buy quotes from those same dealers are a lousy spot price or a bit more....

Re: HYPOTHETICAL PROOFS

Details coins= problem coins, cleaned etc, are generally valued around 50% of a NON DETAILS coin, and
collectors shy away from them when possible

Some Details coins are pretty nice while others are harshly /improperly cleaned and worth much less
