    Not sure if you were serious on the PM Ebay postings. But if you want to buy Silver coins/bullion check out this place

    Their prices include insurance & shipping...maybe do a bulk purchase with the group?
    :D

    You may have had luck with them, but several people over at GIM had a lot of trouble with delayed shipping, outright lies told them on the phone, etc.

    Personally, I would be VERY careful of NWTM.

    Two I've dealt with and had no trouble, and never heard of anyone that has are:

    Tulving Company http://www.tulving.com/goldbull.html

    and Don Stott at Colorado Gold/Silver http://www.coloradogold.com/

    Thanks.
    Another good place is www.APMEX.com

    Did NWT deliver pretty quickly? I've heard of a few delays

    It took 3 weeks from time of order. I have had liberty dollar take 6 weeks so I thought they did pretty good.

    What happens, is they get a bunch of orders then run a bunch of coins and then ship. Same at liberty dollar

    I think one of the BIG problems I read about was with a $200K order that took months to fill and the return of phone calls was less than what would be expected after a CO reciving a wire of that amount.

    And CG, Actually, I buy small quantities off Ebay all the time. Usually 90% at Spot or below.
    I try to buy larger from private sources.

    It's just that the shipping is so expensive from ebay, I just can't justify buying from them. I think I paid .50 cts over spot when i last bought silver from NWTM. My order at the time was well over $200. Anyway, I had good luck with them.

    I wish i'd bought one of the bags when they were like 3400.00 ...boy hindsight

    People will be saying the same thing when bags are 50k........"boy, I wish I'd bought when they were under 10k/bag."

    i checked out APMEX and they look good. you can buy with credit cards Yeah...love the plastic. And buy the 90%'s in 100.00 face value. That looks like how I would prefer to do it

    melbo Hunter Gatherer Administrator Founding Member

    Yeah. Tulving has some pretty high minimums. Apmex will sell you $1 face...

    If you buy a large bag, and pay buy wire, they only charge $19 for shipping.
    Good to see another Silver Bug here CG! :)

    Depends... I scour the "90% Silver" search on ebay all the time. I am waiting on an $80 face order right now that was under spot w/ free shipping. Smart to figure all of that in.
    Look around and you can find them. Of course, my local flea market has had some pretty good deals as well [boozingbuddies]

    Ahh. Some nice fat Bars EL?

    They are cool, but probably not as practical or useful in survival mode as pre-65' coins, or 1 oz. bars or rounds. They big bars do look cool though.

    Good idea to pick up some PMs. I know a lot of folks here don't really buy into the whole Au/Ag thing cuz you "can't eat it" but I stick a few oz of white or yellow metal aside every week. If nothing else, my grandkids will be some happy people when they find 'Old Crazy Grampa Melbos metals stash
