    They did not come from silvertowne. He doesn't remember where he bought them, probably online off of ebay or facebook. He is a novice stacker and a minor prepper. More into guns than anything. They might have even came from a gun show.

    Theres a good chance of that. It's pretty common for there to be at least one person there selling fakes or novelty items at full price especially at larger shows.

    Wow! Great idea. I’m gonna take my PMs to gun shows. Talk about security. And eager buyers. Like candy.
    Hey boys and girls, how about some candy? First one on me. Got a lot of fine-vf Mercury dimes. First come, first served. No cutting the line now kids

    I am assuming the last three pictures are the bad ones. Anyone care to jump in and address what looks off about them? Newbie in pm here, still learning.

    Thanks

    The miner and his mule in the logo are off looking, kinda zombie looking. The frost on the devices seems oversprayed. These are the things that stood out when I first seen them.

    Is that flaking on the backside? Real silver would never display such a quality correct? 639CAE89-95C9-4702-90E6-A9F2BAAB0B8C.jpeg
     
  8. Interesting, I didn’t know so many bars were faked.

    Please tell your friend to buy from a reputable LCS or online dealers vetted by places like CT.

    Apmex, MCM, and other places might not be the absolute cheapest but you know what you are getting.
