    They will be paying more. Just a matter of time and the Dems/Reps/Fed printing press.

    Maybe. The $50.00 hurdle will be tough to get through, and hold. I think something major would have to happen.

    Funnier was the beatings the Hunt brothers took at $50.

    I was fortunate to sell my silver at around 45.00. The reason I did was I wanted to do a Lincoln set. I guess I lucked out

    Not as funny as everybody selling at $5 a couple of years later.

    Man, I could go for some $2.50 Barber halves. Or, for that matter, some $300 double eagles. Do let me know exactly when it's coming, though, so I can ditch all my junk first.

    I got real lucky, sold all mine for $47.50 and then a few days later they killed bin laden and silver took a dive. Bought a bunch more after that for around $28.00

    I wish I could have began collecting earlier! All these stories about buying at $5/oz 3 years ago and selling 2 years ago at $40/oz... It just makes me upset that I recently started collecting. :rollling:

    It was wild. Silver & gold rose so fast. I would go to antique malls, where people wouldnt update their inventory regular. I would buy all their junk silver and or 14k scrap jewelry, and flip it on Ebay.

    Remember when people were paying over 2 1/2 times melt value for a 2013 bullion American Silver Eagle because somebody sitting behind a desk somewhere looked at the coin for 20 seconds and told them it was perfect?

    That was funny also.

    Remember when people were paying over $40 for a silver eagle on ebay because it had '2013' stamped on it and there was supposedly a shortage?
