    Do you use the same formula as any other junk silver? To me they are overpriced, but when is the price right?

    I don't think you'll be able to buy these at spot. I certainly can't in my area. If I can get them at $16 or less I count my blessings. They are too popular and even in junk condition they still command a premium.

    If you don’t have a plug on them there’s really no point in stacking them for silver.

    I bought 100 and have no plan on buying more.

    But my slot machine take more then $100 worth to get modivted to pay out.

    I've probably got plenty, BUT at $15ea it's hard to say no.

    This is it. I have a couple places I can go to get average dollars in roll quantities at $16.00 to $18.00 each. Even slick culls will cost that. Dollars will always have a numismatic premium attached. I don’t have a formula. It’s entirely an emotional purchase for me. If I have the itch, then I scratch it.

    I don't care whether they're overpriced, as long as they're still overpriced when I go to sell them. So far, they have been.

    The only spot-related "formula" I have is that if I see Morgan or Peace dollars at or below spot, I'll buy all I can -- because I'm 100% confident I can sell them for more than spot, without any special effort. It doesn't happen very often.

    Morgan and Peace Dollars worth considerably more than spot.

    CDN Bid is a base I use for offers / bidding.

    Buy when silver is at $17.50/oz., sell them at spot when it reaches $30. You made money.

    Difficulty: it may not reach $30 during your lifetime, or it may reach $30 only after the dollar has lost more than half its present value.

    I keep thinking back to the day when I heard on the news that a gallon of milk was price-fixed at $1.99.

    Milk's a terrible example for price trends. It's subject to big dips and spikes, but lately it's been more dips. Great news for cereal lovers, as long as you aren't particularly bothered by dairy-farmer suicides. :(

    Speak for yourself, normie. My mutant power is metabolizing lactose without any issues.

    (Yes, I know that's probably not what you're talking about. No, I still don't agree with you, but it's pretty thoroughly off-topic for this thread.)
