Howdy all…first…this is awesome! lol I can’t believe I’m actually in it! Thanks everyone for doing this and putting this most excellent website together. So proud and happy to have a part. 🙂 Ok, so I’m looking to buy silver, but don’t know where to buy because a) I’m totally unfamiliar with the process an db) there seems to be lots and lots of options and it’s a little overwhelming. I’ve dealt with Amagi metals before, and I know they are pretty cool (one of their reps is ancap (they sponsored Speak Liberty NOW), and they’ve even posed on JT’s Facebook wall before…lol), and I’ve spoken to a rep with EuroPacific Capital previously. He was great, but they wanted a minimum of 5k or 10k )I forget which now). Shoudl I just go with a rep from somwhere, or does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Cheers!Jump to Discussion Post 40 replies
I often buy silver bars and rounds from the public. In this area of NW Ohio, especially out in the country, we tend to have sulfur in our water. Nothing (natural) will tone unprotected silver faster; first to a (sometimes) pleasing blue, then to purple, and eventually to black. At some point this natural process will begin actually etching into the surface of your coins, rounds or bars. Though it may not affect the sale price of bullion too terribly when you go to liquidate, it isn’t desirable…and tragic when this happens to your collectible coins! Many will be ruined! For safety & security, I highly recommend storing your coins, bullion and/or guns in a safe or other locking container. From there, it is fairly easy to protect against rust & corrosion. To protect your valuables from moisture, purchase silica gel pack(s). Many currently on the market can be reactivated in your oven and used over and over. To protect from other contaminants, I recommend MetalSafe, available from my friend Bern Nagengast at E & T Kointainer. This is a tremendous product that I have used personally for many years. If you plan to store your valuables for any length of time, taking these simple precautions are easy and inexpensive! They are very much worth the extra effort!!Jump to Discussion Post 6 replies
Currently Central Fund of Canada (symbol: CEF) is trading at a 6.1% discount to NAV: http://www.centralfund.com/Nav%20Form.htm The fund is roughly half gold/half silver. At times the NAV can get to 5+%, so if you buy at a discount like this, it can be very rewarding. Owning physical is great of course, but if you’re looking to add more to your holding, this is a smart way to do it.Jump to Discussion Post 11 replies
