You shorted silver a zero! Your math only makes silver worth $1.80 an oz. Not that it couldn't happen...

Ray probably picked up some silver at $1.80 in the old days ;)
I got my 1st silver round at $6, the LCS guy told me spot was $5. I was only making about $15k a year at the time and my next silver purchase was with spot at about $28 on the way up :shock:

If the original poster edits the poll numbers, all responses will clear back to zero votes.

I'm not sure that's such a bad thing. A lot of those votes are from people who may not be around any longer and reflects what BS looked like several years ago. If you want a more accurate picture of things today, I say reset (and add a few brackets on the upper end)

Dangit! :o Maybe that's why the guy at the LCS was smiling when I told him how much I wanted for my stash :lol:

I remember starting to stack seriously (I loaded up every credit card I had) when gold cost me $322 an ounce. APMEX wasn't even named that (I think it was CheaperGold.com) and silver was at $4.30. I just shifted from contributing more money into my deferred comp at the time and instead used that money to make payments towards the cards. Not a move I'd advise for everyone, but in my case it's worked out okay. Still have some of those balances from thirteen years ago, but the highest one is 2.99% interest. :D On the other hand, tho... I had my IRA's loaded with AGQ and lost 85% of their value before I dumped them following Spring of 2011. I might have to jump into one of those class action suits that is floating around. :(

Exactly. :thumbup:
My gold number is less than 2... so no 0's required there!

Just dropped a few pegs. I originally didn't want silver, but I caught the bug. Now I still have more than a hundred rounds to liquidate. I don't know how I went from 0 oz AG in Feb to 400+ in just 4 months... lol

I've got an idea to get silver to the bottom of the lake much easier and a lot more fun than a messy boating accident.

Details soon...

Wow...there are some heavy hitters on this forum. I wonder if 2,000 was broken down further how many would break past 3,000, 4,000 or even 5 grand?
