Re: O/T B of A & others buying Silver with Gold/Silver Ratio going Ballistic

Sun evening Sept 11, 2022= For several days silver has gained from a dismal $17 + change and around a 97:1 gold silver ratio to open night trade tonight at $19.14 As stated before it seems high gold/silver ratios to be unsustainable, and silver in this timeframe in the teens seems a buying oppertuni...

Re: The cleaned badge of shame

From a regular Joe with 57 yrs doing Morgans, your pics portray a example that appears pretty normal with a few light surface scratches/bagmarks, probally not deep enough to call cleaned. So the next issue appears to loom much more obvious= Both obverse & reverse seem a bit to shiny with obverse aro...
