    The expensive testing equipment that a dealer had that Salivatemetal was referring to is a precious metals x-ray "gun" that zaps the bar or coin and will tell you the metal(s) it contains and the percentage of the metal(s) contained in the coin or bar. There is a local dealer that has one and, every once in a while, I go to him to "zap" a coin or bar if I feel is suspect after I weigh it or if it does not feel right. It is very expensive. I heard that a precious metals xray gun runs between $25,000 to $30,000.

    Eventually I will get a Sigma Metalytics verifier because I heard from other dealers who have it that it works well with silver. I like the fact that it can analyze gold and silver through plastic or any capsule that a coin is in.

    Where To Buy or NOT BUY Gold & Silver *Updated Latest Addendum Video
    Junius Maltby



    Published on Apr 13, 2017
    It has been several years since we had a discussion on where to buy and NOT BUY precious metals. Please join the JUNIUS MALTBY channel for todays discussion on this very important subject. After all - it's your money!
    Things to know: The spot price is the current market price at which an asset is bought or sold for immediate payment and delivery. For metals this is raw metal in large contracts and bars. COMEX - 1000 oz or 5000 oz silver. Gold typically in 400+ ounce delivery bars.
    Seigniorage is the difference between the value of money and the cost to produce and distribute it. Seigniorage derived from specie—metal coins—is a tax, added to the total price of a coin (metal content and production costs), that a customer of the mint had to pay to the mint. Making coins is not easy and there is an added cost - purifying and weighing out, forming plankets, making dies, striking, handling, packing and shipping etc. This is why coins and even smaller units of metal always cost more than spot. For Gold, currently it appears that $30-$40 over spot is very fair (per oz.) For Silver, $1-$2 over is somewhat fair depending on volume and type of coins. Hope that helps.

    My Personal Rules for buying Precious Metals Bullion:
    1.) DON'T SIGN UP FOR ANYTHING - No "Network Marketing".
    2.) PAY AS CLOSE TO SPOT AS POSSIBLE (Gold Expect $40 over spot about Silver $1-2 Over) *Include Shipping.
    3.)DO NOT PAY EXTRA FOR GRADED/SLABBED OR "NUMISMATIC" BULLION.
    4.)EXPECT IMMEDIATE DELIVERY OF PHYSICAL (When my funds clear I better have a tracking number).
    5.)IF YOU HEAR THEIR ADS ON A.M. RADIO OR PUSHED BY A RADIO TALK SHOW HOST - AVOID.
    6.)DON'T BE A SUCKER - KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A SWIVEL.

    There are numerous dealers of Gold, Silver and Precious Metals. Some are more reputable and easy to buy from than others. BGASC, PROVIDENT METALS, SDBULLION, JDBULLLION, GAINESVILLE COINS, QUALITY SILVER BULLION, APMEX are some of my favorites (and those of some of my trusted subscribers).
    https://www.providentmetals.com
    https://sdbullion.com
    http://www.jmbullion.com
    https://qualitysilverbullion.com
    http://www.gainesvillecoins.com
    http://www.apmex.com
    http://www.bgasc.com

    I would urge you to AVOID GOLDWORTH FINANCIAL, LEAR CAPITAL, WHOLESALE DIRECT METALS, US GOLD BUREAU AND BIRCH GOLD! This is from one of our viewers and this is what these companies do:
    "Also stay away from Lear capital, Wholesale direct metals, US Gold Bureau, and Birch Gold. My folks bought gold and silver from all 4 and got totally rapped paying up to 40% premiums and getting baited and switched into buying modern slabbed and graded semi-numismatic coins. Just google Goldline-Glen Beck-Lawsuit......all 4 of the companies pulled the same shit with my folks.....these companies need to be exposed and stopped." - Chris Stobel

    DO NOT POST ANYTHING FROM 7K METALS or ISN COINS - These are Pyramid Schemes trying to rip you off through monthly membership fees and various charges. One of them tries to hawk you a slabbed coin a month that is worth half the value the ascribe to it. Rule #1 Don't sign up for anything - NO network marketing.

    If you have a bad experience, get ripped off and can validate a serious and questionable transaction - let the community know.

    Thank you Searcher. This is my 1st time doing youtube videos on '70's silver art bar collecting. I am kind of winging it as I go along since I am new at this. To be honest with you, I will probably not do that many episodes. It depends on a lot of things. I am not sure when my next episode will be but I am brainstorming some topics relating to silver art bar collecting. Thank you for subscribing to my youtube channel.

    I posted this on the '70's silver art bar thread but I forgot to post this on this thread............

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



    See the picture in post # 950 on the "'70's silver art bars" 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.
