    People in the U.S. are confused too.

    There were protesters storming Congress today chanting (screaming!) "This is what Democracy looks like" ... who don't seem to understand that, actually, the people of the U.S. voting in a majority of conservatives into the U.S. Senate, who then confirm a supreme court nominee ... that's actually what Democracy looks like.  Yelling and trying to force people to do what you want even though you lost an election ... that's not really Democracy at all.

    well said!!!!

  2. i think so... supply is crazy low right now... even the US mint is not making the 2018 palladium bullion coin due to metal shortage... I got lucky and snagged one of the 15000 2018 proof palladium eagles before they sold out in 5 minutes and its price is almost double from what i bought it at a month ago... but... this is largely hype and the prices should come back down i imagine... so some "collector palladium coins" are a fair investment in my opinion and the bullion seems to be doing well against gold/silver...it never hurts to diversify your metal stack :)


    p.s.  if this ramble doesn't make sense... you can blame Bombay Sapphire...

    Using a soft rubber removes milk spots. It will damage the surface of the coin but the surface of the coin is already damaged by milk spotting.

    This is perhaps the best video i have seen. CyberCurtainTwitcher views the coin afterwards with a loupe - i cannot see scratches but i wouldn't bother sending it for grading.


    those aren't milk spots, that's mange... better shave that bear ASAP!!!

  4. I don't know what it is really but i love the look of silver much more than gold... something hypnotic about it... better than platinum or palladium too... silver, the gentleman's metal (and Ladies too)... just thought i would put that out... enjoying a wee bit of gin tonight and feel chatty lol

  5. easiest way is to call them and let them know you want to have the veteran discount, they will ask you for proof (copy of your dd-214 is sufficient, you can black out your SSN), then once they have you in their system all you have to do is call them with your order and they will give you the lowest price for that item (usually the price associated with quantities of 500+ but you get it for any quantity)... you have to call though for the order as the website isn't set up for it... I've used it a few times already and its pretty sweet... 


    just wanted to clarify that this is on Provident, not APMEX... 

  6. when i started i bought from APMEX but have pretty much switched to Provident, although they are slower to get the product out the door after you order, but they are cheaper.... and, if you live in the U.S.A. and are a veteran you can buy anything on their website for the lowest price regardless of quantity which is nice :)

    Yeah, I'm really impressed by some of the folks on YouTube, but I guess everyone has to start somewhere

    You are so right!  The fact that you are giving it a go is impressive, hope your project is a success and the journey is as much fun as the finish...
