Hello everybody! Admittedly, I had thought to join a site like this because I wanted to sell some of my silver for a price that was less than you can find it for anywhere else, but for more than what APMEX would give. EBay takes big chunks out of prices that must already be competitive with online dealers, and Craigslist, it seems, doesn't reach a large enough crowd. After 5 minutes on this site, though, I feel like there's a lot more that The Silver Forum community may have to offer.
My bullion adventures all started when, at the end of 2013, I had the idea to take an old black, beat up 1806 Large 6 Draped Bust Half Cent, which I had found and kept for some 15 years, into a local coin shop and try to trade for 1 troy oz of silver, as, I was pretty sure both were worth about $30. The plan worked and I walked away with the only thing the guy had to offer me.. a 1988 Canada Silver Maple Leaf BU in a plastic flip. I was happy. He seemed happy. It was a great trade. I got started buying more bullion in April of 2014 and I've been going ever since.. Provident Metals, JM Bullion, Amagi Metals, SD Bullion, APMEX, Golden State Mint, Modern Coin Mart, and others..
Here's my current wish list so y'all can get to know me a little better :
MS-70 American Gold Buffalo Bullion or Proof Coin
1/4 oz American Gold Eagle BU Coins
2017 South Africa 1 oz Platinum Krugerrand Proof
2015 Canada 1 oz Gold Growling Cougar .99999 BU Coin (in Assay Card)
2012 Canada 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf .99999 BU (in Assay Card)
2017 Mexico 1 kilo Silver Libertad High Relief Prooflike Coin
2017 1 oz High Relief American Liberty Gold Proof
Ancient Egyptian Coins or maybe a Roman Silver Denarius or a Tetradrachm or something similar
Isle of Man 1 oz Silver Cat Proof Coins
