  1. How to spot fake or counterfeit silver coins and bars

    One of the reasons I am so reluctant to buy off ebay is the sheer risk of getting a melon. I've been seeing ads like these for a good few weeks now and just keep getting that bad vibe, especially when you see how few feedback the seller has. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2018-Albion-100g-Sheffield-Hallmarked-100-gram-Silver-Bullion-Bar/183135341439?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BAIRD-CO-999-9-FINE-SILVER-500g-BAR/222791792764?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/silver-bars-250g-sealed-unopened-x5/323158792746?hash=item4b3dc3da2a:g:29IAAOSwKJFasXSN

    Oh right, so you went from a novice to self taught? The power of Youtube videos! It's like having your very own 24/7 visual instructor.

    How did you get into silver pouring? Past employment or just shizzles and giggles?

    @BackyardBullion Would you ever hold silver pouring workshops if the interest was there?
  5. And the tips and tricks you use. I reckon the first tip would probably be.....if in doubt or it's too good to be true.....walk away.
  6. 1/4 oz or 1 full oz?

    My end goal as well. Or at least something that puts me on the path to it.
  7. 1/4 oz or 1 full oz?

    What do you look for when buying a 1/4? Design, price or just straight up coz it's the cheapest gold?
  8. 1/4 oz or 1 full oz?

    Still haven't found a layman's term for understanding that spot stuff. I make my calcs based on price per gram and then see who sells a particular coin the cheapest.

    How much did you get?
  10. 1/4 oz or 1 full oz?

    1/4 being full sovs?
  11. 1/4 oz or 1 full oz?

    To compliment a steady build up of silver, I'm wondering whether to buy a single 1/4 gold each month, or save and go for a full 1oz every 4 months. I can squeeze a 1/4 oz into my planned monthly silver buy, but also know that buying a full oz every few months is cheaper. But, when time comes to sell, I don't want to have to sell an entire full oz if only a 1/4 is necessary. Or maybe go for a few 1/10 or 1/20 each month instead.... Any thoughts?

    Now that is interesting.

    Those coin boxes with the emblazoned Lion look pretty damn fine.
  14. The price of silver

    Like the classic situation where a wealthy German in post WW1 depression era German pulled out all his DM's for a very expensive cup of coffee! I think the key would be to recognise when to sell before that situation arose.

    I was kind of hoping you were looking to give it away..... Oh well, it was worth a try.
