But come on, when the SHTF, where are you going to go sell it? That's right, ONE place, your local Silver and Gold store. Banks don't buy it, Grocery stores dont buy it, etc.... So, you go in with your hoard.... Now let's think about this for a second right here.!! What are you wanting? CASH..??!! Dollars.??!! Mulla.??!! Isn't this why you collected precious metals, to prevent taking paper??? Not trusting the dollar, but now , you want it like nothing else..!!! That's because CASH will always be king.!! Remember this, when the SHTF, ONLY Cash will be king, your precious metals will take a HUGE plunge if you try to exchange it for something . Anyway, my reason for posting this, is this, When Silver, gold, and platinum took a plunge about a year ago, I went into my local B&M and wanted to buy it all, they said "sorry, all out"..!! BS.!! I knew then, the bullion market was a farse. My question is this, what should my local B&M store pay me for an ounce of silver? Let's say Silver is at $18.00 an ounce. What should a reputable dealer pay me for a raw Silver eagle? How about a generic bar? or an ingot? or silverware? How about a Silver eagle in a pcgs slab graded at MS69? or ngc at MS69? any help is appeciated.., thanks.
