    craig12 got a reaction from 999magnum in an asset with no maintenence costs   
    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

    craig12 got a reaction from JosephM in a way to avoid milkspots   
    not the cleverist idea but it is simply this      avoid coins  , all my silver bullion 10 oz bars and 5 oz bars  have no signs of milkspot whatsoever whereas the coins I have purchased id say 30%-40% milkspotted

    craig12 got a reaction from KDave in silver prices   
    £10 seems to be the correct price right now if you study the all time silver chart on the bullion by post site , take a gradual increase from the 70s as the chart does back then  , take a gradual increase in a straight line and you seem to end up at £10   maybe £12 silvers not that great a deal  especially with the dreaded vat on top
