Silver is The Buy of the Century, Yes or No?

Postby Tom Silver » 02 April 2017

It is tough to discuss value of silver. In one breath we say don't considered the price and then ask about the price of silver a t $100 or $1000. The truth is we are purchasing silver for the intrinsic value of silver not the price. Price can be manipulated but the value can not be manipulated. Eventually, true value will always overcome manipulated pricing. Another way of saying this is the truth will always prevail.

Hello Tom,

Ask around you can find a good coin shop in a reasonably close area and you might even save on shipping, etc. The more you deal with a coin dealer the better the deals you will get. That's just my tip anyway. It's not always easy to find good coin shops. And please don't go buying at a pawn shop. With the exception I have found very rarely is the metal of good quality at a fair price.

Ebay is a good place to buy bullion, BUT you need to educate yourself. Get familiar with many different testing methods. Of course, you can't test a bar with only an image of it online. So, begin with reputable dealers (there are many) and limit your purchases to known products with known dimensions and strict tolerances, like Maple Leafs and Silver Eagles. You will need to invest some money (but a small amount compared to the cost of bullion). Buy a scale, a set of good calipers or a thickness gauge or micrometer, possibly an ultrasonic thickness gauge, etc. Perform ring tests on known legit silver and gold bars and get used to the sound. Hold the bullion in your hands and get used to the feel, the luster, and the density. I'm also always suspicious of bullion that has a very reflective finish and comes in a hard plastic case. Counterfeiters know that you will be afraid to take out the bar to test it because it will damage the delicate surfaces.
