    Good to have you along for the ride, Cochisz. The ASE collectors have big expectations with this upcoming set and it will drive prices upward. I have been picking up a few special ASEs just to flip when the frenzy begins. As for my A25s I gotta have a gut feeling when I let them go. As I posted before, I'm more excited to know how many collectors are out there. Corrupt times have been turning out to be pretty good times for ASE collectors.

    A good place to check the going retail prices for these coins is Amazon. As I type this, a set is $795. That price has held pretty consistent over the last few months. A set of NGC certified MS/PF 70 coins is going for $1395.

    Given that Amazon doesn't involve the risk of Ebay, I'd say these prices represent the top of the market right now.

    Are you trying to revive the gov't confiscation controversy of previous posts? I agree that all numismatics are nothing more than bullion and the point in time which determines this depends on one's dire position in life. Yes I'm stacking for the possibility of hard times but in the mean time, ASEs are my choice PM. I have always stated the A25s are better than gold and so I disagree they are only good to flip. I believe there are more collectors than sets produced and demand drives prices. Let the good time roll!

    I hadn't caught that controversy, but no I didn't mean anything along those lines, merely that if we need to be able to use it as money then demand will increase for scrap more than anything else, since that added demand and use would detract from industrial supply. If silver is remonetized it will most likely only be useable with ASE's, so I like them for that reason among others.

    >>>>If silver is remonetized it will most likely only be useable with ASE's, so I like them for that reason among others


    Why would you think that? America is only five percent of the worlds population and out of that five percent I would guess less than five percent would have a clue what an ASE is....I have hundreds of ASEs and I'm the only person in my house of five that could identify them for more than just a silver coin....Every person in my house knows what years to look out for in pocket change to find 90% 40% and even war nickels....Don't let you nationalism give you a blind bias. Silver is to big of an industrial metal to be remonetized and if it was it would be some kind of new global currency, not an already existing specific coin.

    .....you mean the people who have the best guess at what would happen if silver was remonetized, the people who know the many different circumstances that might take place in order for it to be remonetized and to what extent it will be used and how...Nay to them all!

    301 million ASE minted....if the top 50% of Americans each owned two ounces in the form of an ASE, there would be zero ASEs left for the bottom 50%..There's not even one ASE per American

    Nah, heck Guano. I don't let any of that stuff get in my way. I'm just a dumb collector living in a dream world. Ignorance is bliss and I'm just lovin' it.......

    Good point. The line of thinking on this that I heard before was because it would be more difficult to properly assay just any kind of random silver. Maybe they would also accept CML's, philharmonics, etc. from other governments (probably not pandas). In any case, it is speculation at this point, but they could very well just decide to start pumping out ASE's en masse. Not trying to hijack the thread here. I have nothing else to add on this anyway :)

    Because we all know Amazon is THE place to go for all your numismatic needs AND price trends.......

    One ounce coins would have to much value if silver was ever remonitized....It would be like trying to pay for something with a $500 bill, who's going to make change?

    If Amazon is known for having things on the cheap end of the spectrum, why wouldn't it be?

    Come on Guano, do I really need to explain that to YOU? When was the last time you bought bullion or even priced bullion based on Amazon?

    Never, but the things I have bought from Amazon all had the best prices on the web that I could find....guess I'll give it a try real quick.

    I don't rule out any reputable source for buying coins. I wish more people thought like you because it means better deals for the rest of us. LOL

    Why wouldn't you buy something from Amazon if it beat Ebay?

    I would prefer Amazon everytime, if quality of item is the same. The whole paypal thing gives me the hee-bee jee-bees.

    I don't rule out reputable sources either, I'm just not naive or desperate enough to buy a $700-$800 numismatic item from Amazon. I know too much about their business model and how they make a profit to know if you buy a higher value numismatic item from them, you've paid too much.

    To make it simple enough for ANYONE, Amazon is simply a middleman on this type item. It doesn't "hurt" to look at their pricing, but it's equivalent to looking at the advertisments in Coin World or watching TV to buy your coins.

    Name one place other than the mint that isn't a middle man? I would think many of these sets go through about four or five hands before they find a long term resting place.

    Craigslist, Cointalk (and any other coin forum with a "for sale" section)(a dozen right there), personal websites and collector forums for which there are thousands. I also consider any decent B&M NOT to be a middleman (but only when buying).
