Re: are eBay buyers clueless?

Are ebay buyers clueless? Yes. And so is 98% of the rest of the population. I'll spare you my theories on how this came about. But notice the "food" in the carts of grossly overweight people at the grocery store. Look at the big homes a young couple will purchase just to keep up appearances. Notice ...

Re: Stolen coins

Greatest sympathies for your misfortune, and hope that your coins will be recovered.
My attitude towards criminal behavior of this sort is such that it would not be acceptable to detail the punishment warranted on this forum.

It is worth noting that there is a difference between die breaks and die cracks.

Re: 1904 O Morgan reverse die VAM help

I think we can hunt this possum down. Your large full coin shots aren't quite clear enough to convey all of the information needed to make an absolute determination. Though your detail pics are very good. (At this point it might worth confessing that I select my auction house on the basis of the qua...

A small portion of one auction. They're all full. The beans don't photograph as well.

Re: AMAZING VAM VALUES 2015 to Present WOW

I don't think that a discussion of silver prices is unconnected to the price of silver dollars and the price of silver dollars affects the value of VAMs. Further, if something affects the prices of VAMs, it is worthy of discussion. Though I have no claim to expertise, I would be remiss if I did not ...

Re: Are these production or post production?

I see some things that were from the die and some post minting damage.
A good start might be to identify the VAM and compare yours to other examples.

Re: Time to Speculate ? / Hard Assets-Coins-Bullion

Scott, I appreciate your insights, maybe because they reinforce my beliefs. There are reasons why metals, and especially silver, should be bringing much more, and as an investor and not a short term speculator, I can use the artificially depressed market to continue stacking. Even when I had a ridic...

Re: OT- Putting the cart before horse...

Congratulations.
While an unlikely event, it supports the belief that having many irons in the fire increases the possibility of a successful score.
(I have a watch list for many gun parts. Does anyone have a trigger for a Dolne Apache?)
Thanks for sharing.

Re: O/T Central Banks & Huge Metals have Stolen Show

As just a small fry, I see the current prices of silver a buying opportunity.
And as your friend, I would caution you to refrain from criticizing Central Banks.

I think there has been a misunderstanding about the USPS.
Now that they have been tasked with monitoring your social media posts, delivering the mail may take a back seat.

I find it very reassuring that I agree with every word you wrote.
Perception of global economics is not a function of one's economic position.

morganman, I always appreciate your input.
I may not be able to do things in a big way, but I hope to learn now, so that I'll be prepared when the time comes.
thanks.
