    Not the greatest snag ever but I'd do this deal again if I had the opportunity.

    I just picked up 2 rolls of silver dimes for $152.63. Coinflation shows melt at $151.77 and I get $12.20 in ebucks for making the purchase.

    It's the first 90% purchase I've made in quite some time.

    Ditto

    I have a friend that was handed down a few silver bits that may be looking to cash out.

    Owner of a mom & pop shop was is in a good mood today and I scored this nice 1886 Morgan for $14.00. Yes, you read that right...$14.00. I couldn't get the FRNs out of my pocket fast enough. :woohoo:

    That's a sweet deal. Nice snag. I stopped into the LCS today for the first time in quite a while, and he was selling the 90% at $14.50. So I came home with a pocketful.

    Happy to snag a 1983 and 1985 1 onza Libertad along with a 1988 and 1991 Silver Eagle for $20.96 ea shipped. My LCS currently wants $23.43 for recent Eagles and upwards of $28 for the Libertads, and they never have the early ones. I do like those early fat Libertads.

    Went to the Bank, Teller said she had $130.00 in halves, did not want to handle the D*MN Things, so I loaded up and lightened her load, SCORED over 60$ in 40% and 10$ in 90%. FREE SILVER???

    Love it when that happens. Similar story when I went to my credit union. I have more luck when there are loose rolls instead of when they are already in the boxes.

    DAM_!!! I guess marketing is everything "Sell the Sizzle not the Steak". Two hundred dollar profit on $60.00 worth of clad quarters. I wish I had thought of that. I had squirreled away a couple of hundred dollars of Bi-Cent Qu. in AU condition but a few years back I ended the HOLD when I realized the 10s of MILLIONS of Qu. minted and put in general circulation. I ended up putting them back in circulation over time.

    If I'd thought of this THEN I could have bought some real 90% and bought a lot more gas and groceries than I did. :damnmate: :banghead:

    I was sitting on almost $500 face value in quarters and halfs (My GF liked the 1776/1976 coins for some reason)
    I bought some Proof sets with actual silver content and got rid of all the circulated stuff.

    I remember looking them up a few years ago and seeing NO ONE wanted them....SO Whats New Today???
    Suckers born every minute ?
    Money laundering ?
    Sure they are 25+ years old, but I still get them in change every now and again....I just don't get the draw.

    That's some cheap feedback...too bad there isn't any ebay bucks to be had :D

    Last time I saw someone looking to buy friends, it was in the 5th grade (one of the kids fathers managed a McDonalds)
    His son was giving away coupons and happy meal toys.

    FWIW ebay does have a promotion giving away points for free listings (Maybe that's the seller angle)

    A while back, there was an eBay seller who was listing single silver dimes at melt. He sold a ton of dimes and got a great deal of feedback

    APMEX was selling one ounce Pamp Suisse gold bars for about $15 over melt shipped. I think they made an error, I bought one 3 days ago and it hasn't shipped yet.

    I have purchased those same bars from APMEX before for around the same price. Don't see why they won't ship your order when they get to it. If you placed it over the weekend, they probably haven't gotten to your oder yet.

    It has been a while since I posted on this thread but last Monday (Dec, 22), while I was on my lunch break at my job, I drove to a LCS and bought a total of 6 1-oz silver art bars (5 of those bars were '70's silver art bars) and paid $100 for those 6 bars (~$16.67 per bar) when spot was $15.68/oz.

    Here's an incredible snag. Seems to me that the seller has underpriced by a mile. But obviously, he has an idea of what he thinks it's worth and has set the market accordingly.

    The opening bid is a lousy $5 and there's a Buy It Now option of only $25.

    Seems very, VERY cheap to me, but I just don't know what I'd do with it. So I decide to put it up here for one of y'all to grab (if you want it).

    I sent the seller the following question through the eBay system. I'll let you know if he responds.

    The eBay system limits the number of characters I can use to ask a question. I have more questions and depending on if he replies, I may shoot a couple more his way.

    Feel free to ask him some of your owns questions as well.

    Dave,
    I need to know more about the condition of your soul before I'll consider placing a bid on it. Would you say it's in mint condition? Near mint? Or has it been driven like it's stolen? Is it generally clean or is it a bad, dirty, filthy kinda soul?

    Are you the original owner?

    Please explain the previous sale of your soul earlier this year (Feb 12th to be exact). What happened there? Did the buyer return your soul?

    If so, I'd like to know why. Is it because he found your soul to be dirty & filthy? No, really you can tell me

    If not, then how can you sell your soul again? The buyer from the Feb 12 deal actually owns your soul now and you have no rights to attempt another sale. That would constitute fraud. And you're not a fraud now are you Dave?

    I see you tried to sell your soul 3 times since that Feb 12 date. Each time the price has been different. Please explain the variance in the price of your soul from day to day. Is there a soul market like other commodities?

    Dave's reply:

    List of Everything You Need to Know
    - Owner - I'm the original owner.
    - Soul Type - Human Soul
    - Age - 20 years old
    - Condition - Used with minor wear and tear
    - Life Span - Immortal
    - Cleanliness - About average I've seen dirtier
    - Price - I don't have a job right now and need all the money I can get. I keep changing the price because I want someone to buy it.

    If you purchase my soul I will send you a very nice thank letter.
    :)

    My latest back to Dave:

    Dave,
    You've answered most of my questions but I see you've conveniently omitted an answer regarding the previous sale of your soul on Feb 12. I see that it sold for $16.50 & you charged $2.50 shipping, Giving you the benefit of the doubt, we'll say shipping actually was $2.50. It's now Feb 23 & you're telling me you've blown through the entire $16.50 already? Dave, that doesn't sound like you've made wise decisions with your money. Please reply and tell me why I should spend my hard earned money on your soul if you're not even going to invest the money wisely?

    Of course, if (and that's a BIG if) the buyer returned your soul (for whatever reason) then you can simply disregard the above. I gotta tell you, I got burnt on a bad soul puchase back in 2010 and I'm not about to get taken a second time. You know, fool me once, shame on you and all that, right? So I'm sure you'll understand that I insist on seeing a bill of sale, as well as the return receipt, before I send you any cash. Can't be too safe on the interwebs, if you know what I mean Dave. I'm sure you do Dave, you seem like a savy kinda guy.

    So Dave, just a few more questions, hope you don't mind.

    Have you ever bared your soul?
    Have you ever confessed? I Hear confession is good for the soul.
    Do you keep your body & soul together?
    Have you ever told your soul anything? I've always been instructed to not tell a soul.
    Has your soul ever been lost?
    If I decide to purchase your soul, can we talk about a deal regarding your heart as well? I like heart AND soul.
    Lastly, just curious, do you have a soul sister?

    Once I receive some satisfactory answers, I think we can probably work out a deal
    Please let me know.
    Thanks
    JW

    Well, Dave replied....

    Dear Jay or Dub or whatever

    Sorry about the delayed response. I saw that your message was long and mostly well written and that scared me away. I put off writing a thoughtful response not because I didn't have the time, I'm actually drowning in spare time, I put it off because I'm a lazy procrastinator.

    It is now Feb 25, 2015 at 5:25 AM.

    First off, I haven't actually received the $16.50 yet. Based on past experience it usually takes about 2 or 3 weeks before the money is securely transferred into my PayPal account. Also, I'm gonna need a lot more than $16.50. I'm unemployed and I'm $5,000 in debt. I also have cats to feed. So you can see how urgent this is.

    You might be wondering how I can sell my soul again after I've already sold it before. I'm able to do this because I don't believe in souls. So yeah. Like magic I'm able to sell my soul over and over again. So far I've successfully sold my soul twice. The first time was back in September for $60. I promptly wasted that money on Driveclub (PS4 game). It's like free money for free you know. If you buy my soul you'll be buying the soul of someone that doesn't believe in the existence of souls. Who's the fool? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKgPY1adc0A

    Now let me answer your list of questions.

    1.) I don't know what "bared" means so I'm skipping this one.
    2.) Yes. I was raised Catholic and use to practice the sacraments including Confession. The last time I went to Confession was back in 2011. I know longer believe in God or the supernatural so it really doesn't mean anything to me anymore.
    3.) Well I don't think the soul can be separated from the body unless your dead. I'm pretty sure I'm not dead yet.
    4.) I'm a bit shy and introverted so I don't talk to very many souls all that often. But I'm talking to you now so I guess yes.
    5.) Has my soul been lost? Not sure.
    6.) I pretty attached to my heart. I need it to stay alive. You'd have to take it from me if you want it.
    7.) ?

    Hope this helps
    - Dave

    Went to the lcs yesterday and among a few other things, I picked up a California octagonal gold $1 coin, 1873 over 2, ungraded, but I would grade if at AU 50. Front strike is solid, the back is good but a little weak near the middle. Paid about $300.
