  1. I don’t think they charge sales tax on silver in Pennsylvania and you’re not THAT far from the PA border.
  2. The gold and silver pawn shop nearest me sold out all of their silver eagles, junk silver, and gold krugerrands in like May or June.
  3. That’s actually really cool. It’s so unfortunate that they’re made of scrap metal. That’d have been a great series for silver or gold.
  4. Nice heraldic designs. Too bad they’re making coins out of literal scrap metal.
  5. Silver bullion is not even subject to sales tax where I am.
  6. If you’re a US resident, can you not use a free trading platform like Schwab or Fidelity?
  7. 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.
  8. Agreed. Objectively, the resellers should have noticed the weight was off as well.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. It’s bars of sterling. The only issue is that they’re stamped fine instead of sterling.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
