  • Getting Silver from a Bank?
    April 24, 2014 01:12 pm
  • Welcome aboard, Carlos. Good luck searching rolls of coins, I have done a bit of this and mostly come up empty-handed.  But you may get lucky.  Sometimes I have spotted the white edge of a silver half in the bank teller's tray and gotten it for $0.50. Cheers!

  • New to the site. I am also a newly started roll hunter. I thought I would share with you guys. in a two week span before roll hunting I was able to spot a coin that looked different than all the quarters in the associates till when receiving change. I asked the associate if I could have it back in change. It was a 1958 quarter! That same weekend went to the car-wash inserted 10 bucks and got a silver quarter back in change!!! I have not been as lucky searching rolls. I will purchase a box of dimes. Hope I find at least 1 silver coin. Carlos

  • Hey, who's yanking silver spot prices around?  Below $19 this morning and then whiplashed up about $1 instantly.  Is there someone behind the 2-way mirror, pulling levers and strings?

  • Looks like Quality Silver Bullion(http://qualitysilverbullion.com/silver-bullion/silver-rounds) has decent prices and selection on 1oz and fractional. Were ranked top 10 on Silver Monthly and don't have any complaints with BBB but haven't tried them out myself.

  • Anyone know good places other than Provident and SDB for low cost assorted silver rounds? I really tried to like APMEX, but if you like diversity (few each) they are just way expensive.

  • I've been bitten by a number of women over the years, and I totally loved it, but those are stories for a different kind of forum.    Those deer flies and horse flies that they have in Colorado are almost as bad as the flies you complain about.  Is there any sort of preventative you can use, or treatment for when nasty insects do get you?

  • @Mary B , years ago I spent a week with a friend paddling around lakes in Northern Minnesota's  Boundary Waters.  Yes I remember the mosquitoes & blackflies, and the fishing SUCKED.  But such a beautiful place!   Imagine my surprise when a number of years afterwards I found myself in an area of Russia ~300 from Moscow, in a place that looked almost exactly the same - complete with white birches, mosquitoes and blackflies!  Had a great time though; life is more about collecting experiences than accumulating 'toys.'   (Note:  Round, shiny objects are NOT considered toys.)

  • I don't think doc would complain to much about a few private deals carried on here. If he did he would post rules saying NO SALES

  • Black flies have been far worse than the mosquitoes... they leave oozing welts, even blood running down your legs/arms. Not many lakes down here on the prairie and they are over run with the same ski crowd.  Minnesota River has decent fishing for walleye and big flathead catfish though.

  • @Mammoth I would not mind doing direct deals if the Doc did not sell bullion on the site, I don't think it is right to "steal" customers from someone paying to keep the site up and running :) And I don't have any Numismatics for sale, I mentioned the NGC ms68*, but I also have a 1921 Pease PCGS MS66 and a few other "key" date Peace dollars that are conditional rarities that I bought from a GREAT dealer, who unfortunately passed on a couple of years ago, that I knew the provenance of the coins and trusted more than any other I have met over the years...he was one of the few that treated and priced everything the same whether you were another big dealer with a table or a person off of the street buying one SAE!  He is greatly missed by most in the coin biz :( I am also a sucker for nice Peace dollars...

  • @MaryB  That is what I was afraid of...seems like you are doing the best that you can with the availability! Man, aren't the mosquito's like hummingbirds when the weather gets hot?  I do admire you for being able to live outside of the city and the one thing that I would love is to have access to that many lakes since I am a sucker for good fishing EVERY time...we have quite a few man-made reservoirs but they are over run with weekend boaters, drinking and "skiing", if you can call it that.  We lose quite a few people each summer in boating accidents, due to the drunks with power boats, so it is dangerous to try and fish unless you can get away during the week :) Hang in there, pawnshops are even worse that feeBay so keep on stacking anyway you can...I still think silver is going down before it goes back up but buying weekly/monthly, etc. works better than trying to time the market, imho.

  • Mammoth you won't find dimes under $1.75 anywhere online unless you can buy huge quantities. Small stackers like myself who are happy to grab $3 face of dimes here and there pay what you have to. And I prefer USG 90% coins over generic rounds.

  • starting to get worried. Any ideas?

  • Next month is May, and we all know that saying: "Sell in May and walk away." In other words - from now until Labor day - the PM market may continue to be a real yawner. Having said that, there is always the possibility of a price-shock due to world events.
