    Well of course for two people to trade when only one of them has what the other wants... that's where the need for money/currency arises. Something they can both agree on the value of, and can be used by the seller to later buy what he wants that the original buyer didn't have. I don't know if the money agreed upon will be silver, but that makes more sense than defunct paper money (although some will probably accept that out of habit or sentimentality). Some early forms of currency will probably be things with universal barter value, like bullets, matches, cigarettes, liquor, toilet paper. Then later things with intrinsic non-utilitarian value like precious metals or gems, eventually evolving into stuff with only symbolic value, like our Federal Reserve Notes which require faith in the issuer.

    I've got 100oz sitting in my safe that I think I paid around $10 for. If I sold at $1 under spot I'd.have enough money to put a new roof on my house and a new .22 for my kid for Christmas. Hmmm

    100oz @ ~$25/oz ≠ $130k, more like $2,500.

    Inexpensive roof.

    No, my math skills are fine. It's my attention span that's lacking - I was thinking about gold, but the thread is about silver.
    I is not overly bright sometimes... :therapy:


    Never mind; nothing to see here... :toilet:

    Yea, heck I wish I had 100oz of gold sitting around. I wouldn't have a mortgage lol. And yea, I was figuring around $2000 for the metal roof if I do the labor myself, and another couple hundred to get my boy a 10/22 and a good scope.

    So the roosevelt dimes I picked up for $1.00 each now contain $1.90 in silver (spot value) while my eagles, purchased around $14-$16, have a spot value over $26.

    Not bad. Definitely a better direction than the FRNs sitting next to them. :(

    Is our currency (USD) seriously becoming less valuable by the hour now??
