    It is going there. I haven't looked today but as of yesterday silver rounds on e-bay were selling $6 OVER SPOT. It has NEVER been that much over. :wow:

    Well I called the PM dealer near me who, just this summer, was selling rounds for .50 over spot. Today the woman said..."Oh we no longer deal in silver, it's just too risky right now".

    So now I have to buy a few pieces here and a few pieces there to gather more.

    :tongueout:

    And besides, even if they weren't deceptive with their timing, they still have minimum quantities and shipping costs for orders.

    At $100 an oz, shipping cost doesn't matter

    At that point it doesn't. At this point it does.

    Right now, it's not at $100oz. so shipping is proportionately more than it would be once it hits $100oz.

    My thoughts are...why not buy in smaller increments privately rather than pay significantly more for shipping and such as well as leave a paper trail.

    Many dealers offer free shipping if you buy a larger quantity of silver.

    Do you see the fallacy in your logic?
     
  12. CF,

    You're not the one who's not following.

    Emt,

    He's saying, that silver is going to $100 or more, so while it may look that shipping matters right now, it won't after a while. Do you want to wait until shipping doesn't matter? Or do you want to buy at 25% of the price for later.

    Larger quantities meaning what?

    I can afford a roll or two at a time.

    There is 20 rounds to a roll. More like $600.

    Sorry. I meant to write Delivery Confirmation, NOT Signature Guarantee. Signature Guarantee is $5 something.

    No I think he was ignoring what I wrote underneath and listing what the minimum dollar amount was.

    Also, where are you seeing that you can order such a small amount?

    Thanks!
