    Could be a love token, coins which were bent in two places slightly and given to women by their sweethearts.  You lost value because of it being bent but nice to know that you're possibly holding something which could have been treasured by a young woman more than 250 years ago.

    Thought it'd be interesting to get a look at some of the different types of hand poured / hand crafted silver out there besides your usual bars.
     
    Maybe there's a niche in the market here in the UK for someone to do this, especially with the advent of 3D printers.  You could get a little 1 or 2 oz figurine of yourself or other personalised keepsakes?  Sure it's a small market but diversifying down that road could appeal to more than just offering bars.

    Sorry to throw dictionary definitions at you, but it's important for my point:
     
    Conspiracy is an evil or surreptitious plan made in secret by two or more persons.  In law it's defined as the same and results in a crime, fraud or wrongful act being committed.  Without getting too much into semantics, I can't see how people can dismiss declassified government files such as Operation Northwoods (stated how to make it look like Cuba had shot down a passenger plane), numerous ambiguous incidents before wars over the past 120 years, the role of the media (and historically cinemas) as a means of propogating ways of thinking to the masses, the continued reliance on a flawed economic system, the role of economic hitmen in the destabilisation of countries (see John Perkins) unsustainable military policy and the role of the neo-cons in dictating American foreign affairs.  
     
    It is interesting to me that this word has seemingly been hijacked and evolved into something that's associated with being overly suspicious, or connected with people who are blubbering paranoiacs.  Highland Tiger's reference to "conspiracy nutters" is an example of this widespread bastardisation (Cointreau that's for you) of the true meaning of what a conspiracy is, and whilst I appreciate the "conspiracy theorists" themselves have a role to play here, and often by their all-too-quick assumptions that "it was Murica what did it!", they only dilute what I believe is important, that we don't just blindly swallow what we're being told and try to look at the numerous shady events which seem far from coincidental.
     
    My feeling is that the world is not as it seems.  I don't pretend I have the answers, I definitely don't.  But the more I read the more I get the feeling that we are in extremely murky waters, brought about by this system.

    Going by the way people these days seem to willingly pull their pants down and get shafted from everything to expenses scandals to youth unemployment, invading countries we have no business being in to happily paying the Bolshevik Broadcasting Society's TV tax, I think that if that day ever comes, most people would hand it over and do exactly what they're told like the good domesticated sheep that they've become.  
     
    Failing that, they'll have a rant on twitter and all will be forgotten when they tune into Top Gear re-runs on Dave.

    You've got a long way to go to get my respect Pipers.  Real men stand up for number ones and twos.  And they don't bother lifting the seat up either.   For anything.  Walk in, stay standing, do your business and walk out.  Don't flush.  Don't wash hands.  That'll teach the feminists.

    I've been going to watch arsenal since 1970s , when there was next to no football on the tv . My old man has been going since the early 1950s.
    So how densensitised and uncaring must we be ?
    With respect paul your post is absolute tosh . To say anyone that enjoys sports is blind to the world is just wrong.
    Football did exist before skysports you know.

    Carpe Diem reacted to Danny-boy in New Contact for Collectible Silver   
    Hi all,

    I have made a new contact in Germany that I have bought a number of coins from, everything went & is going well. His prices (in my opinion) are always keen and shipping is cheap / fast.

    He has silver & gold, bars and coins of both metals.

    It's more the rarer / collectible stuff rather than standard stacker territory.

    He has allowed me to share his sales inventory with "my friends", which is what I'm doing here.

    Neither I, nor the Silver Forum take any responsibility for your dealings with this seller, you do so at your own risk and on your own terms. I won't be posting prices, you can negotiate prices and deals with the seller yourself - any problems, however unlikely I deem that to be, are yours and yours alone. He is an Ebay seller on German Ebay, but he doesn't list very often.

    Anyway, T's & C's over, here is the list of items he is currently wishing to sell: -
