    Not sure what happened there...LOL, but that is a really desirable bar if it
    was in one piece LOL, the Silver flow lines are amazing and to top it off
    It has a Canadian stamp on it.

    Next time I'm in the shop I'll ask how much, just in case you feel the need for book ends.

    I was hunting in mpcusa's neighborhood and plucked out a couple silvers.

    The eagle bar is a blank and I don't think I have one, next time I'm in the back forty I'll have to look.
    The gold and silver pawn shop Old Man round l have 2.
    They bring a premium on ebay and I may have to flip this one for a nice ROI.

    Well I don't sell much, but one can't
    Argue with free silver.
    I sold off the pawn stars old man coin at the going rate. :greedy:
    I have another one I'll list and pass it along to cover the cost of the 5 ounce Eagle Bar.

    Congrats on the Pawn Stars flip. I would have done the same thing if I came across a Pawn Stars silver art round and paid .999 generic premium for it.

    I did see a Pawn Stars round earlier this week but I did not buy it because he wanted $50 for it. I passed on it.

    Not to give out too many trade secrets:rolleyes::rolleyes:
    In good shape, I'll buy everyone I see under $30.

    while the market is HOT, I listed the other signed NGC slabbed one on ebay.

    I really do not like those rounds very much, however, I will definitely try to find one under $30. If I find one under $30, then it will be for my business to flip for a profit.

    Well Sold the other pawn stars old man coin in the NGC slab for decent money.
    The 2 bars easily cover the $95 that I gave for the 5 ounce Eagle silver bar.

    Translated into plain english, Free silver for a bit of labor.

    Did a quick drive by the local haunt and had to search Google for a couple bars that I didn't recognize.
    jade assay silver bars
    I returned after work and rescued them alone with 2 other 1 ounce pieces.
    A St Francis Chapel Mission Inn bar, numbered 650 of 1000 and The heart panda pendant already found a home 20180510_172958.jpg 20180510_173024.jpg .

    Strategic stockpile bar.
    There was a seller in the store selling $10 casino silver strikes, the ones with the brass rim for $5.
    I'll have to ask about them next trip as I've seen just the centers for sale in the junk bin.

    Nice Jade Assay bars!!! Those were a good catch if you got them anywhere near spot.

    Anywhere near spot would be a Great catch.
    They cost me $10 over spot per ounce, but considering I sold the smaller one and paid for them all (we did fine)

    $10 over spot for those two bars was a steal!
