    This is my 1st time doing youtube videos on '70's silver art bar collecting. I hope to get a little better with it with each episode. I am not sure when my next episode will be. I am currently brainstorming topics relating to silver art bar collecting for my next episode.

    4th episode the The '70's silver art bar show:



    See post # 950 on this thread as a reference.

    I also want to mention that this will be it in terms of episodes for a while, however, I am going to do some brainstorming on the next episode (5th episode) of my '70's silver art bar show channel. Given the fact that old silver art bars are very hard to find, I will not plan to do these on a regular basis. The 1st four episodes were just to get my feet wet on doing this.

    Stoned you must be to want to hide Marylin under a sink.
    Just the amount people talk about porn and the Romper room type threads on every site got me to buying as many adult themed bars as I could. I ain't sold any yet as I figure if people actually get money again these will [I need a moon shot emothingy].
    Thanks for the vids SA.:2 thumbs up:

    I went to a big coin show today in North Georgia to buy some '70's silver art bars and this was one of the bars that I picked up at the show:

    DSCI1362.JPG
    DSCI1363.JPG
    It is a gold-plated version of a 1973 Patrick Mint Cable Car 1-oz silver art bar. There are two things that are interesting about this particular purchase. One thing about this bar is that it is a gold-plated version of 1970's Patrick Mint 1-oz silver art bar that I have never seen before until now. There is not one listed in the Archie Kidd book. The 2nd interesting thing about this bar is that it is in "original packaging" which in this case it is in the original stamped envelope. The "012" I believe is the serial number of the envelope and not on the bar since Patrick Mint bars do not have serial numbers stamped on them.

    A very interesting find IMO. I paid $29.00 for it (spot closed at $17.90/oz today).

    I feel good finding old '70's silver art bars that are not listed in the Archie Kidd book. It makes the find feel "special" to me.

    Excellent presentation on that 5th video Artbar more polished than that gritty street thug attitude prevelant in your earlier work. Whoever did the artwork on that love making bar was a perv (in a good way) for sure. I did hear the words "8 dollar silver" in the video LOL.

    Awesome presentations Mr. Art. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. If I may offer a few suggestions. 1) Hold phone sideways while recording. 2) Give viewers a small taste of your knowledge and offer a link where they can purchase the video by accepting bitcoin or our world renowned digital currency called frns. The info you are giving away definitely has a great deal of value.

    "Gritty street thug attitude"???? LOL!!!!!! I like how you described that. I did not realize that I sounded like that in my 1st presentation. LOL!!!! I usually speak about the same but I guess I was nervious in the 1st video and my nerviousnes probably showed. Thanks for the feedback.

    I do not remember anything about $8 silver being said in that video but when I replayed that last video back, I did hear "8 Dollar silver" words in that last video. I think that my subconscious made me said that but did not realize it at that time. I was giving a "hypothetical example" of another silver plunge to $8 and how that would relate to rare silver art bar prices. There are just some silver art bar prices on certain rare silver art bars that would hold up (or even increase) if silver went down to single digits. Silver art bar price elasticity/inelasticity (i.e. silver art bar price sensitivity relative to change in spot silver price) is what I was trying to explain in the video. When silver went from $49 in April 2011 to a $13 handle low in 2016, there were a lot of silver art bar prices (mostly on rare silver art bars) that held up or increased on a dollar basis during that April 2011 - January 2016 time period (silver art bar price inelasticity). On the other hand, in that same April 2011 - January 2016 time period, almost all of the common silver art bar $ prices and the $ prices of certain semi-rare and even some rare silver art bars did decrease on a $ basis relative to spot silver decreasing in $ price (silver art bar price elasticity).

    Thank you for those suggestions. I will think about doing those things especially the phone sideways suggestion. The phone suggestion does make sense to me especially when showing silver art bar(s).

    As for the offering my videos for purchase, I do not plan to do that for the time being mainly because I am not widely known yet on a national level. I am happy with the profits I make on selling '70's silver art bars on ebay and elsewhere online and offline. Even though I give away my knowledge and my observations/experience for free, my knowledge/experience/obervations on this '70's silver art bar hobby pays off in the form of the profits that I make on this silver art bar sideline hobby business when I sell on ebay and to other people online and offline.

    However, If I decide to write a book on silver art bars (not very likely ATM), then I probably will make that available for purchase but do not hold your breath on a silver art bar book by Silver Art since I am not really in author and have never written a book.

    Thanks again for your feedback and suggestions. That will be very helpful to me whenever I make my 6th episode on the '70's silver art bar show.

    I did want to add to what I posted in my last post in response to what you posted in that If I were to write a book on '70's silver art bars (not very likely ATM), it would contain a LOT more information than what I have in my '70's silver art bar show videos and I would charge for the book. I think that given my love for this hobby, I think I could write about a LOOOOOOOOTTTTTTT about this if given a lot of free time but then a again I am not a real author and I have never written a book. It is still a good suggestion and I should consider this down the road if/when I decide to attempt to write a book on it. Maybe 5 more years of collecting experience, 5 more years of selling experience, more knowledge and more observations and then maybe a book is certainly not out of the question.
