Scottsdale Silver is a private silver mint based in Scottsdale, Arizona. They mint their own rounds, bars and sell a variety of interesting coins/rounds including legal tender from around the world.
In my experience, their packing and shipping has been fine. I've never had any problems with any orders. They sometimes include some promotional materials in the packaging like a Scottsdale Silver refrigerator magnet or such. The ones I have recieved were classy as far as that goes.
Pay attention when Scottsdale Silver tells you shipping is delayed 2-3 weeks (which is clearly displayed before you even put anything in the shopping cart). I have found their estimates to be pretty accurate.
Scottsdale's prices seem to be pretty average. Last time I checked, they were not quoting prices based upon the live spot price. Their prices tended to move in steps based upon the spot price in 15-20 minute intervals. Sometimes, this affords you an opportunity to buy silver at Scottsdale at a better price than other dealers. Sometimes, it means their prices are a bit higher.
Their own minted products are very high quality. They consistently command a premium over other generic (private mint) silver on ebay.
I signed up for Scottsdale's promo emails, but have rarely received any. They don't put their products on sale very often! Must not need to given that they seem to chronically have a 2-3 week delivery delay.
