    She was at the mint (Neat place by the way, went for a tour in 88' when I was backpacking across the country). That would probably explain it. Can't prove their point if they charged you $28.95 for it like everyone else........ (maybe, $24.95 if you're lucky).

    All purchased for a buck or two over spot at local dealers. Becoming friendly with the dealers has its perks, they were putting this stuff back for me :beer:

    Never posted on this thread so figured tonight would be as good a night as any. Though I'm a heavy silver stacker, I do dabble in the yellow stuff every once in awhile and came across this mini collection that I felt I just need to add to my lake. Not a screaming deal but figured to load up a bit on the yellow stuff thru this and a few other purchases in the last week or so. This is the first package to come in, pardon the grading holders as I like my gold as naked as possible, I did get the OGP for the Columbus and San Francisco $5 pieces as part of the deal though. Pardon the picture quality, I'm no TomD......

    Irons you Sov whoooooore, did you take a "holiday" across the pond to the Sov museum? Because I have it from good sources that you had a mishap with the SS Irons on a lake in that godforsaken state of Michigan and lost all of your precious. Guess that's a good use of all of the lame ass silver you find on the beaches.

    Look at the big fat pig feet in the pic. Are they Orcs or just morbidly obese silver stackers?

    My bad, and full appologies, full stop. I missed your joke about your pics being from the Internet. Not the first stupid thing I have done this month. The other being I started up on the dip again (see the second pic). Further, Pacific Rim came out on pay per view last night, but when i went to order it, I accidentally ordered the next movie down on the list so it cost me 2x to watch Pacific Rim last night. These 80 hour weeks are killing me...

    Starting to sell my built up gold filled items, so I snapped a few shots. Two eyeglass piles are 1/10, two are 1/20. Got most of them for next to nothing.

    I just got this coin from the Royal Canadian Mint today. I thought it would be neat to add to my Buffalo & Bison collection.
    It is really stunning compared to the pic on the mint website. :banana::cool05::thumbs_up:

    97 guns, did you unwrap the 100 gram bar? The plastic wrap makes it difficult to take a good picture. I purchesed the 250 gram version so that I could do the side by side below, a 250 gram gold against a 250 gram silver bar. One last pic before I stash them in the safe deposit box on Monday. Looks like you took your plastic off, I think I will do the same to get better pics.

    I picked up a SBSS Warbird medallion. Not sure how I feel about the entire message of Greatest Truth Never Told, but I liked the design. The condition wasnt the greatest, light scratches around the edges as you can see on the upper left area of the bird side. I wouldnt buy again, overpriced in my opinion.

    97,

    When you unwrapped the bar, I am assuming the certificate fell free? You laid it on top of the bar for your second pic. But what confuses me is this little certificate, which could have had a serial number to match the bar but does not. I do not quite get Geiger's whole "security line" thing. I guess you have to leave the bar wrapped up in order to preserve the integrity of their "security line" safety protocol. What good is the individually numbered security label otherwise?

    Or do they have micro printing stamped on the bar that matches the security label?

    Another thing. The 250 gram bars come individually sealed. Or you can get 45 in their wooden box. So I guess 8.02 Oz * 45 bars = 360 Oz for their version of a monster box, at least of the 250 gram bars.

    Here's a Morgan Dollar I got from my grandma on my third b-day.

    DSCN2280.jpg

    My gambling addict uncle (these grandparent's son) would take and sell my grandpa's coins for pull tabs or various gambling adventures he thought would make him rich. There are 3 rounds and 2 bars left from what my grandpa acquired aside from this dollar. If I had half the sh!t my uncle sold for a drink or a scratch off, I'd be much better off! No point in holding a grudge though. My grandpa died a few months before I was born. I'm glad grandma gave it to me. The pic isn't the best, sorry, but it's a 1894 Morgan. I'm happy I have it. Even if the silver dog went to the moon, I'm keeping this one.
