Nice research/post. Any good deals out there for the common guy? Like 10 oz bars? I'd expect to see a discount on 100 oz bars, just can't lay that kind of cash out for one.

I agree. That's why the 100 oz bars have such low premiums. They are great for someone wanting to purchase a large amount of silver at a time, but are not great for the average buyer because it is too much $$$ tied up into one item. Also 100 oz bars are more difficult to verify as legit for the average silver buyer than would be a 1 oz or even 10 oz silver round/bar.

Just my opinion.

I would hold off for now folks as I believe silver is heading down some more this coming week and I'm getting ready to jump right in with my roof fiat. Lol Keep Stacking

I think you are right. Perhaps after one more drop the bull will be back. Lots of uncertainty in the world today that's for sure.

I found an ad in a coin paper (Numismatic News - Mar 1st) where a company is paying 6% over melt price for U S 90% silver coins. Got a bunch of 90% to sell?

That is not such a great price. One of my local guy pays roughly 10% over melt just for junky dimes and quarters. Halves he pays a bit more. The premiums on junk silver are still ridiculously high. They sell those same junky dimes and quarters for around $4 over melt per ounce of pure silver. I guess the poor fools who think they will be bartering for survival with junk silver coins are the ones shelling out so much for crap dimes and quarters as they would pay for new Maples and maybe even ASE's.

PS I do think BU rolls of junk coins are a good investment if you can get them CHEAP, but the premiums on junky junk silver always drop to the floor when silver rises in price. When the price of silver is low like now premiums go up. An inverse relationship for some reason. I was buying BU Franklin rolls for less than ASEs when silver was in the $25 or so range. Now they wholesale at $9.00 over melt for the common year rolls (per $1 face).
