Question SGS Silver Eagles

I buy a lot of my silver off e-bay, but I always buy from either APMEX or Scottsdale Silver. So I get this Paypal invoice that I think is from APMEX, and I pay it, but it turns out it's from someplace called SGS Enterprise, which is SGS coins in Valpraiso, Indiana. The thing is, I don't remember bidding on that auction, which makes me nervous. Now, $113 for 5 ASE's is not a bad price if they're real. But if they're fake, it's a terrible price.

They look real. The weight is off a little (0.05 grams heavier) from some 2014 ASE's I got from APMEX. I put them under a microscope at work and they look pretty good. I haven't tried a "ring test" yet.

Has anyone ever bought from this company, or does anyone know of their reputation? Thanks.

I have not heard of them before, but that doesn't mean they aren't legit.

I haven't bought anything on ebay for a while so I may be out dated, but I remember receiving an email every time I placed a bid as well as my bids (and their details) were tracked in your account details.

Never heard of SGS though.
