Big dealer in town was advertising mixed dated silver eagles for $2.50 over spot. I do business with them all the time and know each one that works there. I asked if i could come down and look at them before i bought any, they said sure. They had about 500 oz available. Told me they would bring 100 oz at a time for me to look at. The first batch came out and they had the years marked on the tape that wrapped all the way around the tubes. The first year i saw was........DRUM ROLL PLEASE.......1996 :D . I was thinking to myself there is no way that that is a complete BU tube of 1996s. I carefully opened the tube and sure enough the first coin was a 1996. I carefully removed the other 19 coins and almost passed out. They were all 1996s :shock:

Still have it along with BU tubes of 1987, 1995, 1994 etc. etc. You name it i probably got it that day. Complete untouched BU tubes :lol:

Its fun to accumulate generic because it can be converted later. Elemetal buffalos with the textured background, painted eagles, and sunshine bars

At Coinarama, I got 3 Engelhard bars and an Engelhard Prospector for $19 each! The dealer had a bin of silver for $19 (because they were flawed with scratches or other defects). It was great to get some Engelhard items for under spot!

Nice! I haven't had much luck on CL, but I got a few $$FV for 14x and some sealed sunshine bars for $20 ea. All under spot!
I prefer payment in crypto: LTC, ETH AND BTC. Also accept Google Wallet, Zelle , Postal Money Orders, and Personal Checks. Shipping prices do not include insurance. If you want insurance/registered mail, it's always extra.

I scored these at a pawnshop somewhere SE of my home while I was just out driving around.
They had tons of guns, probably 25+ Model 94s, some priced above 10k, wicked rare stuff.
Once I got away from the gun counter, they had a bunch of random crap for coins & jewelry, but the little box over in the corner said spot + $1, so I went thru it and found these five. I especially like the Winchester bar, but the Masonic one is pretty cool too. All are in decent shape, and at that price I couldn't walk away from them. Overall, last week was a good week for increasing my silver holdings, scored some really cool stuff. If I can get posting pictures figured out, I will post my new goodies.

Testing, 1 2 3

Whaddya know, I finally figured it out! Now I can post some other goodies.....

Got a nice score on 6 5oz "Scruffy" Libertads from Apmex. $127 each, 4 of them appear to be BU and 2 Proof. All 2010s. Should be able to make a little profit. Lots of fingerprints on them but no real scratches.
