  1. Gold and silver prices are down

    Went to the Bay State Coin Show yesterday. I was a little surprised at the price over spot, but for any physical PM collectors interested in going, before you ask: ASE rolls were going for $625ish; new design $675ish; gold $1,900ish.
  2. Gold and silver prices are down

    Yes, take all the predictions in this thread and just do the complete opposite.
  3. Gold and silver prices are down

    I went to the coin expo in Manchester earlier today. I take the same approach to physical PM as you, but judging by prices and inventory I saw, I’m not sure “depressed prices” is the term I’d use! Silver back date ASE rolls were $740; $800 for new design. Gold eagles were $2,075+ - if you...

    I freeze my rice to prevent weevils and then store in mylar with o2 absorbers. Possible overkill, but worth doing.
  5. Gold and silver prices are down

    Before you get wrapped around the axle, realize that most of the guys in this thread are invested in shares of gold mining companies or trading options and futures contracts. That’s why they are so invested in speculation and day to day data. I look at PMs as an insurance policy against bad...
  6. Gold and silver prices are down

    Went to the Manchester show over the weekend. Rolls of ASE were generally $585; gold eagles were generally $1865-$1900. There was no shortage of silver, but gold eagles and buffalos were almost sold out, even with the vendors that are typically well-stocked.
  7. Gold and silver prices are down

    Well, It’ll probably also mean that confidence in the economy is at an all time low, historic levels of inflation, poor economic outlooks, and crisis on the horizon. Not sure why you guys celebrate this unless you’re at Scrooge McDuck levels of PM ownership.

    I went yesterday too. ASEs were between $33-$36 each. Wild. It was busier than I remember and for once I wasn’t the only person under age 90 at a coin show. You’ll get a higher premium selling PMs here on NES than to any dealer (just sayin...)😎
  9. survival study: water

    What size do you recommend? I’m thinking I want 5gl ones, but have 1gl versions handy in case I can’t carry 45 lbs of water
  10. survival study: water

    Anyone have experience with collapsible water cubes? If I lose well water all the Berkeys, Sawyers, and bleach in the world ain’t gonna mean shit. I have a brook about a mile from me that I can get water from as long as I have a working vehicle.

    This is a really smart idea that I’m going to adopt. Thanks!
  12. Winter Day hiking prep

    Since her pack is going to be like 50 lbs with all this stuff, she won’t make it out of the yard. Problem solved.
  13. Winter Day hiking prep

    This advice cannot be understated, and it doesn’t weigh or cost anything.
  14. Winter Day hiking prep

    Not sure “just walk in a direction for an hour” is a great winter hiking emergency plan. If you pick the wrong direction you’re hiking in bad conditions, fatigued, and with no daylight.
  15. Gold and silver prices are down

    I’m almost always on the lookout for ASE, Morgans, and Peace dollars. I’m not in a position to pay top dollar, but I can pay in cash and smiles.
  16. Investing in PMs

    Agreed. I’m always interested in buying Morgan and Peace dollars...
