Kookaburras

I just sold a set of Kooks' for three times spot. A guy I know collects various sovereign silver and gold coins and he found out I had a bunch of Kooks. He called me out of the blue and asked if I would sell him some dates he was missing and I agreed. Now, I have enough cabbage to triple what I sold him.

I never did understand paying more for something than what it can be had for with a little patience and looking around, but......cest la vie!

the local coin shop guy raked me over the coals about BTC today. He said its the only way he could transfer a billion dollars in his head to another country and lose nothing. He asked me what other instrument could you do that with? I don't have an answer for him, other than to tell him that there is no electricity in some of the places we frequent.

I have a five ounce Onza I picked up awhile back for 140 dollars. (I think someone on this site actually told me what it was). The box mildewed somehow. It retails for like 260. Wonder if it still has value without the box? Guess its still silver!
