Silver drops...

This artificial smash down is a Godsend for those who are still stacking. Personally, I've picked up another 100 face in junk along with three five ounce stackable bars. You 'gotta love the stackable bars!

Nothing like stacking stackables. They are nice and stable, you know, in case of an earthquake or something, they won't fall over!

Just stacking mint-direct ASE's along with that other (yellow) metal for now...I'll branch to the platinum group if I see the right price setup as well. Those actually have uses in my lab. In fact, all the PMs do. Total win-win.

Questions for you two guys!

1) I just was offered Morgan Dollars (n = 7 pcs) at $40 each, they are apparently in very good condition (I suppose I could ask him their numismatic condition and check eBay...). Does $40 sound like a good price?

2) DCFusor, do you use the very exotic stuff like Ir, Ru, Os and so on?

I do not know much personally about Morgans, but there seem to be better deals to be had.

Very good quality 1921 Morgans for less than $35

Most Morgans seem to go for less than $40 a piece:

Thanks Benjamen! I passed along that info to the Seller and looked at eBay as well.

Silver Eagles are the only silver I have.

I'm late to the party but thats kinda pricey. My favorite coin dealer shows 1921 Morgans (common date) 730. a roll (36.50 each) at 31.00 spot. for brilliant uncirculated.

I don't use the exotic stuff at present. It's one of the very few things I've not been able to find at anything like the "paper price" - so I work around with other stuff.
Science speciality houses sell it - but at premiums that would make any PM dealer blush (or envious - like 10x the so called market price, or more).

I just looked at some silver charts. There is the barest HINT that we might see $20 silver later this year. I am not holding my breath because it seems impossible to me today.

I expect this current rundown in silver to stop around the $26 mark. If the next runup can't DECISIVELY break $32, then I strongly suspect $20 is in the cards.

I'm looking for the 26's to be short lived as demonstrated last July.

There is way too much physical buying to indicate otherwise.

I will relate to your charts with the commentary from another investor who said we could see 22 this year then an unbelievable run up past 49!

Guess we'll see whose got the right 8 ball!

"With the White-Hot Demand for Coins, Why Are Silver Prices Falling?"

"After the first two months of 2013, the U.S. Mint had sold nearly 10.9 million American Silver Eagles (ASEs) - a third of its sales total for all of 2012. And on March 18 - the Monday that followed the weekend news about the Cyprus bank-deposit-confiscation plan - the Mint reported a stunning sales total of 638,500 of the silver coins ... for just one day.

But here's the kicker. Despite this frenetic buying, spot silver prices have actually fallen since the start of the year - a conundrum that's ignited fears of a silver shortage and investor allegations of market manipulation by Wall Street."

These pricks are just relentless. All they are doing is coiling that spring tighter and tighter. With silver this cheap and gold getting pounded down as well, those who want metals will be backing up the truck right about now. Perhaps this is by design, so the Dark Princes can get a little more shiny before metals regain their true equilibrium. Either way, there is no possible scenario within which I could see this as organic metal sales.

I wonder if the plundering of COMEX inventories may have prompted emergency action by the PPT to crash prices with an eye towards stopping that bleeding (by removing the incentive to take delivery).

PMBUG, That's the only scenario I've seen that makes any sense out of this market at all. Dow down, metals getting pounded, going to DEFCON 3... I think I'll buy some more physical....

I can not find any place that is selling ASE for less than $30, even in bulk. Everyone wave goodbye as physical silver and paper silver prices go their seperate ways.

ditto, but CSP shows SAEs at 29.44:
https://comparesilverprices.com/

just paid 32. but at this point I don't care. Most of my silver was acquired at face. the secretary I just talked to said "wait a moment, the market is going crazy".

edited to add they had plenty in stock.
