    Alex reacted to SILVERFINGER in Nazi Silver   
    My profile picture is of my 1939 dated nazi era Walther PPK which is absolutely beautiful workmanship, I have 9 German WW2 era guns (plus other nations),  people like German stuff for all different reasons, the high quality and the late war low quality and shortcuts and inventivenes, they were the first big recyclers of captured and altered military weapons, their uniforms were extremely smart compared to ours, but being designed by Hugo Boss of aftershave fame I am not surprised, then there is the attraction of the infamy and evilness of it all, which fascinates many people,  much the same why people like to keep poisonous snakes as pets I guess.
    And before anyone says I am a nazi I aint, I research WW2 weaponary and write about it, I have nearly 40 weapons, 100 of ordnance and probaby close to 300 books on all aspects of WW2 of all nations.

    Those are the 3M strips mate yes, they come much smaller too - sorry my mistake, they say change every six months but I may have read somewhere 12 months should be OK (or I may be mixing things up and be wrong!).
    Here's a roll of Kook Privys I vacuum-packed yesterday, now ready to go into storage. The vacuum packing may be overkill, the anti-tarnish strip may be unnecessary, but imho these are 'very best conditions':

    You want guaranteed non-PVC bags, I would place anti-tarnish strips and dessicant packs inside each (I use the ones in a paper bag rather than the plastic kind you picture - cheaper and less 'plasticky' chemicals for the same effect).
    Gold in slabs doesn't matter so much as it's much less reactive and ofc won't milk spot (as long as you don't store slabs somewhere silly, e.g. your pond!) - just take care of it. But for silver slabs I would go with airtight containers with the same - dessicant packs and anti-tarnish strips.
    Hope that helps and always hoping to learn new methods

    Alex reacted to StackerNoob in Silver bar or rounds? 🤔   
    Whilst the majority of my stack is in coins, I have only ever had "wow" moments with bars, particularly poured and cast bars. So I would have to say that all else being equal (i.e price mainly) I prefer bars. Some of my bars give me that feeling I used to get as a kid when I got a new toy car or something that I would take to bed with me and sleep with it next to me or under my pillow. Or that feeling you get when you see a cute baby and you kinda want to eat them.
     
    That sounded alot weirder than I meant it too...

    People continue to ignore the saying "past performance is not a guide to the future" or similar.
    The past levels of GSR have absolutely no relevance to the future, especially comparisions that go back to when silver was a monetary metal. Talk of what it was in the 1800s is ridiculous.
    There is no reason for the GSR to go down, we may even be seeing a continuous, steady rise to who knows what level might become the norm for the next hundred years.
    At the end of the day, it is supply and demand, if we ignore price manipulation of course. There are just not enough major uses of silver as an industrial metal to counter the amount that is being dug up.
