    You'll never achieve financial independence through PMs. Sorry.

    Niels87 reacted to MickB in Milk spots and value   
    Milk spotted coins usually go for a lot cheaper price on eBay and with online dealers who sometimes mark them up as seconds.
    The spots can be cleaned off with a treated cloth but under a microscope there'd be light scratches present. Haven't tried ultrasonic cleaning with silver cleaning solution yet, might be the way to go to get a better price.

    Milk spots are irrelevant to most bullion dealers, it is the value of the metal that they will give you. (well, normally 98% of spot).

    Niels87 reacted to BackyardBullion in The Silver Forum Branded Investment Bars!   
    Hello everyone! @ChrisSilver and I have been talking and working hard behind the scenes to bring you all an exciting new product!
    As many of you may know I am a hand poured silver-er...I also love this forum!
    So Chris and I have teamed up to create some hand poured Silver Forum branded 1 oz investment bars!
    Photos of the prototypes are below but here is our plan and some of the specifics about the bars!
    The bars will all be hand poured and hand stamped by me! They will be stamped with their weight, the Silver Forum logo and 2017. On the side of the bars they will be stamped with their serial number. No.01, No.02 etc.
    They will also all be hallmarked by the Edinburgh assay office - regardless of their end destination - (international sales would not normally require a hallmark). The hallmark will be on the opposite side of the serial number and will have three punches, my makers mark, the purity (999) and the Edinburgh Assay Office mark (a castle).
    As well as the hallmark each piece will come with a Backyard Bullion & The Silver Forum COA and will be supplied in a blue jewellery pouch!
    They will all be made using 999 fine silver and will all weigh at least 1ozt - guaranteed. Pouring silver is not an exact science so some bars may be a few grams over 1 oz - but none will be less than 1 oz Troy. 
    Our intention is for these bars to be something for "The Silver Forum" to have as our own. The UK Stackers Facebook group have their Mythical Creatures rounds so I figured this was something we could do which is unique and different! It is also a great way for me to build my brand (Backyard Bullion) within the community and also to help promote The Silver Forum too! We want the bars to be exclusively available to The Silver Forum members, standard, premium and gold members inclusive! These bars will be promoted via my Youtube videos but if people want to buy them then they will have to join the silver forum!
    Our pricing structure will be as follows:-
    Standard member price: £25 per bar + postage
    Premium member price: £22.50 per bar + postage
    Gold Premium member price: £20 per bar + postage
    Additional discounts are available for multiple purchases and free postage (in the UK) will be offered if you buy more than 1 bar!
    So the purpose of this thread is to find out from everyone your level of interest so that we can plan how many to make. 
    Each bar will have a serial number on so if you are interested in a specific serial number then comment here too - it will be first come first served though!
    Estimated delivery dates will be some time in June. 
    If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to ask!
    Thank you for your time if you have read this far and I personally just want to say thank you to ChrisSilver (and a few others for the feedback you have already given!) for the opportunity to make these bars and the help and support he has given me in starting this project and helping to build my business up from the bottom up!

    Have you seen the youtube'r silver girl? I started watching her coz she's a silver stacker but she posts mostly about being transgender.  
    She brings up issues that I wouldn't have thought of.  It's def educating me about trans issues.  It's worth a watch. 
    Ps I bet you misses is more of a 'real' woman than I am.  I have no clue when it comes to make up and what clothes go with wot 😃.

    Most of the time they are just trying to figure out if it is a real girl or not. 
    Now that the years pass it will be more easy to see so maybe they not look so long anymore. 
    But it complicates life a-lot, it would be so much better if it was a girl from birth.

    I think society gives transgender people a hard time.  It must be such a hard thing to come to terms with psychologically.  You'd think once they started living as the gender they are it would all be over, but it's not.  How rude of people to be staring at your girlfriend in the street Niels87.  People should just mind their own business.

    Surely gender refers to which gender you most identify with.  I mean a male to female transgendered person feels like a woman, therefore your gender is female. Why complicate things with a million different words for it that no1 understands anyway!

    There is no such things as trans gender unicorns.. 
    Clownfish on the other hand can change gender
    When the females dies, 1 male of the group change gender and becomes the female. 
    Just sharing... 
    I think 4 Genders will do for the list
    male, female, transexual women, transexual man. it pretty much contains all others.

    Do not buy the treasure chest from Meinemuenzbox.  They are made from ply and not very strong.  You would need to reinforce the bottom for it to hold a decent amount of silver.

    Anybody know this feeling ? 
    Recently i completed collecting all the series i wanted to have. 
    so once I achieved the series they don't interest me that much anymore and now i'm doubting to sell them all and buy cheap silver, just to have more.
    I'm just not sure i will end up regretting it and start collecting them all once again, lol.

    I'm far away from retire, but I've spend few months in Asia - Thailand and Malaysia and for retired British, there is the place. Of course not in the capital, not Bangkok, but Pattaya or if you're rich around Phuket it the best place to be. 
    If you're single - Pattaya for sure!
