    Fun memories from this thread. As a kid I bought an old poured 10 Oz silver bar for the princely sum of $50 using saved up allowance and lawn mowing money. I bought it because I liked it, and did check the spot price in the newspaper every day for quite a while. I'm not even old, only 34, but now I feel old. I bought that bar in the late '90s when home computers were still expensive (for us at least) and not everyone was connected to the Internet. I think a lot of people were still used to checking the paper for market updates anyway - that's how we did it in school (stock market class) even though we had Internet access there.

    Eventually I stopped checking as I moved on to other interests. I found the bar again when getting ready to move toward the end of college, and checked the price online. This was near the peak in 2011. Oh boy had I been out of the loop! I did not and will not ever sell that bar, but it renewed my old interest in metals and coins.
