    keep haggling

    just managed to buy a 5 oz libertad 2004 £75 inc postage £71.10 +£3.90 , its above my cost average I like to get down to but looking at the e bay completed listings I think the lowest on record is £78 inc postage , so if it checks out genuine , im well happy with this 5 oz to the stack , did try £65-£70 but no joy //it did have a start price of £100 to be fair and all the completed sold ones at £80 + tend to be 2018/19 coins

    just got 10 x phills for £128.04 on e bay with a few milk spots inc p and p the coins were £12.50 each , I think that's spot +11% or similar , the seller got a sale im happy , it just goes to show that if the silvers genuine , there are bargains to be had took 3 counter offers to get there but this is more like the usa way ,I simply cant pay £15-£18 per oz any more ,

  5. I now look on silver a little different , I went to the building society the other day for my 1% interest and thought , now what , that's rubbish, I know ill buy a property as an investment, or I could buy a place in spain , or I can get another classic car , which ever way you look at it theres a cost to maintain these investments , council tax , rates , elec , gas, service charge, ground rent, car tax , car insurance, etc etc, , now looking at silver what are the maintenance costs zero , nothing yes it might not have performed well but you buy it store it forget about it , yes it can go down , but so can proprety and classic cars and Spanish property, im sticking with precious metals , £1000 spent requires no ongoing costs , and if I can secure for under £15.50 per oz cost average im well happy

    how can you test it and then get a refund surely youd damage the item testing it , its not like 2 coins when you can hear the silver ching

    now im confused

    received my 4 oz silver 100$ bill today , well in a sort of gold colour , stamped as 999 silver on it as I understand there were some gold covered copper notes , contacted seller straight away , it isn't toning im sure its the colour of a £2 coin on the bi metal of a £2 coin , im gutted , ahh well probably a return , it looks silver in the photos , like they should , mirror silver finish
  12. can anyone tell me please why the max keiser 1 oz coin/round is so expensive ? im scratching my head I think they go for between £30-£99
  13. a one dollar bill 4 troy ounces , this sadly went against my maximum price per oz of £16 but try as I might all sellers wouldn't let these go cheap , so I do love em so had to pay £80 posted , ahh well its put the average cost average up but whats it doing in the bank zilch...…..
  14. ive recently tried to compare what I think is a good buying price per oz for silver as a good deal , and I don't think this is a bad comparison , at akinsons if you go to their 1kg bars and look at the very most bars to purchase you get a price currently of £15.80 , so if you can pick up the odd coin or two ,at the price you would have to buy 50 + 1kg bars to get the same price , not rocket science I know , but I sort of think its a good gauge on a good deal
