    ooh .. I couldn't resist. A few days ago I bought 7 ASEs. A small purchase but the first "coins" since I obtained some US 1800ish quarter and half dollar a couple months ago and they were well under $17 each which is a target of mine.

    Until China cracked down on it to prevent wealth outflow.
    and US, India, Pakistan, etc etc are all cracking down on crypto whether for taxation on gains or identifying if a security or not for regulation, illegal activities, etc.

    “Illusions” is the proper description. Was there ever any real belief that a computerized currency could provide those? I’m not sure that cash can do that, any more.

    as long as you don't spend $10k at a time it's totally under the gov't radar except for electronic records of those cash transactions dependent upon where you are using them.

    V. Kurt Bellman Yes, I'm blunt! Get over your "feeeeelings".

    I'm not sure I've ever heard them perform. Is there a particular vinyl LP you'd care to recommend?

    No thanks. The Philharmoniks are my least favorite of the major government issued bullion. The edges are not reeded, so they look like generic cheap rounds. The design is boring to me. The premium is often very low, which seems nice, but it's because North Americans generally just don't care for them.

    Hey Claw, Did you get an email from someplace asking if you rec your provident order yet.?

    Yes I did. From a "" website .. supposed for ProvidentMetals.


    You have the ability of opting out of this junk email checking for feedback

    Why ?
    I ignored it as my package hasn't even shipped yet. And I'll probably OPT OUT of getting emails. It's taken actually quite some time now for them to process my stuff and they haven't shipped it out yet. But then, I'm not planning on flipping these so I haven't really cared much as of yet.

    yea mine is still on payment approved also. I will get a hold of my buddy at provident and ask him why I got it if my order is still being processed . He just loves it when I contact him 6 times a day, LOL

    I think many people received those ShopperApproved emails this fall. If you read up on the company, they simple gather data and feedback for companies who pay them to do so.

    Unfortunately when Provident sent out those ShopperApproved emails, multiple people had issues with their order staying as "processing" when it had in fact actually shipped.

    There are a number of little things like that about Provident that always make me a little nervous dealing with them. However, their prices are so good that I keep placing small (under $200) orders from them. However, I reserve my big orders for JMBullion because their service is excellent and their prices are second only to Provident.

    I've never had any snafus with Provident, even their Status has always been correct for me. This is the only time it's taken quite a bit of time. I guess maybe I'll stop by my POB on the way home just in case.

    FYI, I do not like any external feedback companies. I never reply, always ask to unsubscribe, take me off their call list etc etc. If I have anything to say I'll contact the company directly just like every one tells you to never click on a link from your Electric Company/ Bank/ etc and to call them directly.

    I'm a marketers worse nightmare.

    @abuckmaster147 funny, I just got an email at 2:16 about it being shipped

    Many banks monitor regular "Cash" deposits/withdrawals, and report same to IRS in conformance with the "Structuring" law. You should probably review same for enlightenment. Institutions are REQUIRED to report $10,000 transactions.

    I'm sad to say I've been intimately involved with this IRS structuring subject!

    Quote: How much cash can you deposit before it is reported to the IRS?
    All you have to do to capture the IRS' attention is make multiple large deposits that are less than $10,000 in your account. Banks that get deposits of more than $10,000 have to report those deposits to the federal government.

    I believe you'll find it needn't be large amounts, but merely a "consistency" (unstated frequency/amount/number) of cash transactions which will initiate a bank report of "Structuring" activities! A singular action may initiate a filing. I initially purchased an item on eBay with a price >$10,000 and PayPal required two deposits <$10,000, that initiated an inquiry. The banks are forbidden, under penalty of law, to answer any filing questions!

    "BIG BROTHER" is watching!

    This was my Guys reply !!
    Hi Jon, yes, it’s a legitimate email from Shopper Approved, which is a firm that we use to collect honest reviews from our customers after they’ve shopped with us. As you’ve probably gathered, its an automatic follow-up email. And it’s completely optional! Shopper Approved doesn’t receive any of your information other than your email, and they cannot solicit anything from you other than your review for us. Hope that helps!

    Palladium .. say it ain't so

    crossed over at some point and was more than Gold
    Palladium with a higher high than gold $1249.00 vs $1242.60

    reminds me of when Gold flipped on Platinum as the more expensive metal.

    with the backdrop of the market dropping ...
