How much YPS silver do you have

I generally don’t divulge much about my stack but in an effort to reduce my YPS dependency I do hereby confess the fact that between David and the Duck, I have 615 ozs and I still need a half kilo skull :x

Lots and lots, but it's not like I have a problem. I can quit any time I want to.

Apparently not as much as one would be led to believe?


Like some, I've been selling off for years -- including some rarities & lower serial #'s. But even with new additions, the number of pieces & total ounces have been going down.

I never had one of the larger collections, but still. At its peak, it was certainly a sight to behold. 8-)


I no longer buy/own any rectangles (YPS or otherwise). 3D/4D, all the way. And I do collect from a few other smiths in this category. Definitely more competition out there these days, some who are doing some pretty awesome stuff.

Still debating on where I want to go with this poured/casted stuff. It may end up being a smaller portion than what I had originally anticipated. Tastes change, I suppose. YMMV.

But definitely a fun & cool way to stack/collect! :thumbup:

"You got another package?"

Is my favorite welcome home question. What problem? I don't know what you are talking about!

I suppose I have two answers. First one is not much, I got into the game a bit late and realized I'm way behind to try and do any type of serial collection. So I just pick up a design now and then I like (hammer and anvil sets etc.). Second way to look at it is YPS poured my first design for me and will likely be doing more in the near future. So in that case it'll likely to be in the many hundreds in the not so distant future.

Maybe some of us don't know, off-hand -- or don't even want to know.

Or don't want others to know just how bad our addiction really is.

30-50toz would be a guess. Maybe more.

Duck on every pond, ounce Star, and hammer/anvil set are my favorites.

Question for David....
Any idea how many ounces of silver you have poured?
Ballpark guess would be sufficient. :pop:

I don't have a clue

I could have Brit look it up for the past couple years on quickbooks, but before that would be nearly impossible
