Reader Cyndi reports on silver:
I just tried to buy some junk and regular silver from the coin shop
near my parents house. He's completely sold out! No silver
whatsoever! Also, he said he'll let me have the junk for spot!!!
Talk about increased premiums! Last time I bought from him (April) he
gave me $10 UNDER spot!!!! Shit! I'm a bit stuck as Gainesville
Coins won't ship out here, and Apmex has a high premium, and once I'm
done paying that AND shipping, and then postage back to my mom, well,
you get the idea...sheeesh. That said, Apmex has some really cool
Striding Liberty half dollars I want SOOOOO badly( (for myself) I just
might have to whip out the old JPM credit card, lol. The Onza should
ship in a few days. I like buying shiny stuff.
End Cyndi's email to me.
OK we now have three boots on the ground reports (and yes, DCFusor, you may very well be right about sellers NOT wanting to sell below cost):
*** Jonny Bahrain noted no investment gold in Bahrain
*** Reader "P" reported no gold at an important coin shop in Dallas
*** Reader and "Virtual Friend" Cyndi reports on silver above.
eBay/24hgold widget shows premium of 23.6% for gold and 83.5% for silver.
All around smart guy DCFusor was able to make this image available to me in a format that would fit in my blog! Thanks DC! This may be a record... From Clive Maund to Rocky Racooc to DCFusor to my blog!
Oh, and baa-ah! Baaah-aaahh-baaah!
Bah! The picture below worked for a while anyway. Such is the life of a Junior Blogger, there's always something...
