Sales of American Silver Eagles, privately-minted Silver Eagles, and 100-oz silver bars are not reportable, no matter the quantity. How true is this? If a profit is made on the selling of the coins do you not have to file a 1099B for this? Especially if it is say $10000 or more sold on Ebay or on another auction site? Even though it is not your trade or business. I have to believe that the government or IRS would notice a large amount of new money in your checking account that wasnt there in the beginning and they would like to know where it came from. More so now with the good ole Patriot Act. Any answers would be appreciated.
