  1. Silver bullion is not even subject to sales tax where I am.
  2. If you’re a US resident, can you not use a free trading platform like Schwab or Fidelity?
  3. A circulated silver 90% dime is estimated to contain approximately .0715 Troy ounces. A mint uncirculated 90% dime contains .0723 Troy ounces. Approximately 14 dimes is required to amass a Troy ounce of silver. of course, these are estimates. Really worn dimes can have less because they’re literally thinner from decades in circulation.
  4. Agreed. Objectively, the resellers should have noticed the weight was off as well.
  5. The problem with selling shot sterling is that its purity and metal composition aren't confirmed for a buyer unless it’s assayed. It’s even less validated than home poured silver bars and rounds.
  6. I’ve never actually found sterling shot for sale absent looking around for it out of curiosity. It’s really just used by sterling manufacturers and people in the art world that make stuff with it. I think the general consensus in stacking circles is that a sterling item is worth more as an existing item unless it’s ruined and is truly scrap material.
  7. It’s bars of sterling. The only issue is that they’re stamped fine instead of sterling.
  8. That’s basically a really scaled up (and obviously slower) version of what people do to turn scrap sterling Items into shot before reusing it to pour sterling art.
  9. I get it cheapest at gold/silver retail pawn shop type stores and rural estate auctions (which can be found online). Even still, I’m paying over spot.
  10. You’d have made more money on an ETF.
  11. Yeah, eBay does not look good for constitutional silver. In fact, etsy and eBay seem to show the highest prices for silver coins. $23 per Troy ounce for constitutional silver is not very enticing.
  12. I’m interested in acquiring more U.S. 90% constitutional / junk silver at or about spot.
  13. That looks like a scratch or gouge. I’ve got tons of mercury dimes, that’s not as common as just being worn, but it isn’t crazy to see.
  14. How are you liking them and where are you sourcing them? I’ve been considering adding them to my stack. Krugerrands are pretty widely recognized (albeit usually in gold) and they sell for way less than ASEs. I prefer constitutional silver, but the premiums I’m seeing online are insane, while I’m finding a lot less for sale locally. Silver Krugerrands seem like a solid alternative.
