I had never heard this term, Constitutional Silver, related to 90% junk silver until about 6 months ago.
Anyone else?

Intentional attempt to make the simple into the complex in order to get money from people. By making the ordinary seem extraordinary, sellers create the illusion of value when none is present.

The only place gold and silver show up in the constitution is in Article I Section 10 - Powers Denied to the States. That section prohibits states from making "...any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts..."

I guess I missed my point... When was the first time you heard this term used? I only
have in the last 6 months or so.

Is it supposed to ward off the CoVID-19 virus? Do you inject it or swallow it with corn flakes? Maybe it's got nano-particles of silver to kill "germs" and other nationalities trying to sneak in.= beneath Miss Liberty's torch?
