Why clean them unless you are trying to sell them? Seriously. Why?

That's $28 per ounce. E-bay would cost you $33-$34 for the same. Not bad at all!

Well I tried the aluminum foil and baking soda thing. Worked really well on most pieces. On some it did next to nothing. I then ran a magnet over every piece...no fakes.

Just figured I'd report back.

He sold. Not purchased.

Actually, the look silver gets after time has passed doesn't look like anything else. I would tend to watch for that look, just one more clue of authenticity. Clean silver, unless newly minted would be suspect to me.

All my gear, tools and equipment, they all be clean.

And PB, I can smug here if I care to be, allthough I shouldn't be smug with EMT, it's lazy of me.

Really the only counterfeit coins you MAY encounter are the Chinese made American Eagles. On the gold & silver forum there are numerous reports of these.

I was pretty much given all of my ASE's as a gift growing up. I only buy generics now...Silver is Silver!

With the counterfeit Chinese Eagles easiest way to spot them is they are all marked 1989. That normally wouldn't be a big deal but the U.S. Mint didn't make any Eagles in 1989. With the price of silver it's not a bad idea to weigh them because as the price keeps going up the fakes are sure to follow. E-bay sells PM scales for $15-$20. Lots of good info on these at www.goldismoney2.com

With private deals I bring my own scale and magnet. With ones bought at cash 4 gold places...I use theirs. However, I actually found that dealing with the place closest to me is a LOT cheaper and easier than this crap with finding private sellers on CL and hoping we can come to an agreement.

I am in GREAT shape, double+, on my cost. I have been doing some trades lately for ammo and firearms. It's like getting them for 1/2 price and more and more people are willing to trade.

Really?? So you're trading silver and getting guns/ammo?

See I have enough guns/ammo to choke a horse so I'm not sure I'd jump to do that right now. But it'd be good to know for the future. However, I haven't seen ANYONE offering up guns for anything on CL, gunbroker, etc....let alone silver bullion.

EDIT: Something else I wanted to add is that every 20 oz. or so I had to put in new foil/baking soda/hot water. Now it may have just been that the water was no longer hot enough but I didn't test it by only replacing the water/baking soda.

Thanks!

Anyone here diversify their PM's? That is, instead of all Silver or all Gold...do you mix? If so, why? What's the reasoning for having both?

I only ask because I just realized with what I have, I could trade it for some Gold. I like Silver though because it's easier to do smaller transactions with without having to cut the bullion or make change when it comes time to use the pieces to buy goods/services with.

I'm also partial to 1oz. rounds/bars...again because it's a small standard unit. No huge loss if change can't be made.
