    Hard to find someone that beats JMB's low premiums. It would be great to see a side by side between a one Oz coin and the two Oz coin you are showing us. The two Oz coins will not be twice a large, but it is substantially larger?

    I purchased the Fisch ringer and a few of their wallets a few weeks ago. I will put the PT coin on the ringer and see what (if anything) happens. I will repeat what I said earlier. These PT coins are absolutely brilliant in the light. They are not dull and boring. The ridges may have help refract additional light as compared to the old Maple design. Which is why I cannot wait to see what a 2015 Gold Maple looks like.

    Another thing on the Fisch ringer. I tried this with my one Oz Gold Maple and the coin did not ring. All my other maples are in my safe deposit box so I guess I will have to wait until I order my 2015 Gold Maples. But the coin I rang was purchased from A***X so I doubt it is a fake. It seemed like the striker on the Fisch ringer could was not reaching the coin. On the thread below, someone is saying in post #3 that "Gold maples don't ring either"

    As usual my pics suck but I did manage to get a bar or two from the Silver Art Collectors site. It commemorates Archie Kidds dedication to the hobby.

    Yep. Archie Kidd is the silver art bar "god" as far as I am concerned and his guidebooks are the "bible" for silver art bar collectors to read and learn. Without his guidebooks, I would not be the '70's silver art bar collector that I am today.

    A five oz wedge tail high relief. Would not have known about these if searcher had not posted the salvatate metal videos on the 10 oz pour thread.

    Some 5 Oz proof Panda’s. The 2013 is my favorite of all the Panda’s designs, but they both look great in my display case.

    Just received ten more Maples bringing my average price below $1,000 per coins, My small gathering of friends will hopefully get larger shortly.

    Are the tubes a tight fit for your maples. The tubes I have are very tight.
