    Agreed, which is why I read the negative feedback when there is some. You can smell the bullshit pretty easily

    I'm not a true stacker....I only like to stack gold and silver that isn't minted anymore and is at least 50 years old.

    Premiums on pre-'33 gold are really low at the moment, might be better off looking for a deal on a common date half eagle.

    Define "really low" The lowest I can find for a St. Gaudens double eagle is ~$1340 and that's for .96 oz. of gold. That doesn't seem like a low premium to me.

    There are many who feel like a 5-10% premium on an authenticated 100 year old piece of US gold is reasonable. Others don't see it that way and move on.

    There's no email notification or message on the ebay system, btw. It just shows up "activate" on ebay home page in purple

    To get the 10% you have to use the eBay app or it's just another 8% clunker. Already made my AU purchase.

    OH, I hate the idea of installing another app on my phone. There's just too much malware out there. Moreover, I don't trust eBay as far as I can throw their CEO and don't want them in my phone at any level. That's just me, I've become very untrusting lately so I'll just leave that extra 2% on the table

    I'm glad we live in a country where you don't have to use the eBay app if you don't want to shooter. My service wasn't for nothing......

    You can't get there from here.
    Everybody wants my mobile number and it seems everybody will offer me a "deal" if I hand it over. Why does everybody want into my phone?

    I took a pass on the app as I always do when these "offers" present themselves.

    I hear you guys, I do alot of ebaying as a seller and buyer (25 transactions a week) so it's helpful for me to have the App since I'm on the road most of the week.

    Plus, I've already been informed from a liable source that the DHS has a file on me an inch think.

    got one, 165 bills for 10 oz and from MCM to boot. cheers


    I'm guessing it's going to get canceled for mis-listing/invalid coupon since it's for collectibles only and to my knowledge these aren't?

    You can use the code PROMONYCC on any item in the MCM store listed under the category Collectible > Historical Memorabilia. I just snagged 2 of the 2 oz dragon and 4 of the 2 oz Unicorns, at $19 an ounce it isn't bad for these very high premium coins. $278.84 - $50 coupon = $228.84 for 12 oz silver with free shipping and a couple dollars in eBay bucks.

    I know I could've optimized it a bit better at 5 coins, but I wanted 2 dragon coins. :greed: But you can only use the code once, so sad.
