  1. I was planning on doing an unboxing but i haven’t had the time. Instead, I took a couple of pictures. Four 1 ozt Christmas themed bars for the kids. I also bought them tiny treasure chests to put them in that can Easily fit in the safes when they aren’t being enjoyed. I bought those from BGASC for Black Friday. the $25 in US junk silver and 1ozt round I bought from SD Bullion’s early Black Friday sale.
  2. It’s not a bad idea to do unboxing videos for security purposes. I’ve never had a problem with an order, but that doesn’t mean I will never have an issue.
  3. @HelpingHands that is a great stack (horribly shakey video). That guy had more on each table than I expect to amass.
  4. unboxing videos and full stack videos always make me want to buy more or different stuff. Most of my stack is US junk silver purchased from estate auctions. It’s less showy than gorgeous bars or fancier bullion.
  5. Hey everyone, I’ve been enjoying the awesome full stack picture thread and some of the unboxing videos. I was thinking of doing a few such videos with silver purchases going forward. That got me thinking, do you all check that stuff out too or am I just a crazy person for enjoying the silver purchases of others?
  6. It’s not going to impact the value of the silver. It may impact your ability to sell it privately for a premium above spot. It wouldn’t bother me.
  7. I’m writing off the US mint products. Too much effort for a buy and sell.
  8. Predicting markets is not something people can easily do. It could go up or down in the short term.
  9. I got banned because the captcha page lagged out and I hit refresh.
  10. It’s confirmed at $83 https://catalog.usmint.gov/end-of-world-war-ii-75th-anniversary-american-eagle-silver-proof-coin-20XF.html?cgid=silver-dollars#start=1
  11. Sigma Metalytics machines are a pretty good way to test. They’re just expensive
  12. Hello. Welcome to the forum. You’ll probably find quite a few recommendations (I’m afraid I’m not familiar with the local coin shop options in Ireland). That said, private sales between forum members tend to be popular and, from looking at listings, reasonably priced. In the US, I have better luck buying from local precious metal/pawn shops, estate auctions, and sdbullion.com. Findbullionprices.com can also be a good tool to compare premiums.
  13. That’s not an insane weight differential if it was worn as heck and aggressively cleaned. For instance the difference in silver weight only a circulated but nice condition mercury dime is about .0715 ozt where as an uncirculated coin would have .0723 ozt. Weight loss happens on very circulated and cleaned coins.
  14. Wow, that case is terrible. The Wall Street collection has a random New York City silhouette that isn’t from or near Wall Street (downtown Manhattan) but uses the Empire State holding (Midtown). Moreover the distributor is not even in New York, but New Jersey. The krugerrand Round design bearing 2013 isn’t possible as a silver coin because they didn’t make them until 2017. This is one of those collections that makes you cringe.
  15. It’s always hard to tell from pictures but that second picture looks like physical damage. If that’s on each coin, it might be from the die when it was minted.
