Silver Collection 2011 – Bullion Bars Coins Jewelry – Stacking For The Future

December 4, 2012 by  
Filed under Gold Coins


I’ve been collecting silver for about 6 months. My collection ranges from 50% coins up to 99.99% silver maples. I’ve also purchased a lot of sterling silver jewellery. I’m not sure buying sterling was a good idea, but I figure silver is silver. Anyhow, the SLV market recently peaked at $48.50…

    well if your ever looking into selling the chains etc, I am in England UK and I have been collecting silver and gold for a while along with other metals, Right now I can give you details that america and canada are going mad over. Its another precious metal and you wont have to pay sales tax unlike us!!! ahhh. PS I am from America but moved over here since. Anway email me jonrms2000@yahoo.co.uk

    Very eclectic silver collection . . . niiice!

  3. Stillwater900 says:

    99.9999% of all silver jewelry is sterling. Pure silver is too soft, it will scratch and dent and wear out very rapidly, no serious company uses it. I don’t know where you got it, but in 10 years of gold/silver hunting and being in the jewelry business, I’ve only seen it maybe 2-3 times.

    The original point was though, that guy was trying to imply that I was buying low fineness silver or something, “8 karat” which would be 1/3rd silver. It was cute that he said “karat silver.” Lol

  4. johnaldridge740 says:

    all silver jewlrey isnt 925 i agree most is but i am wearing a pure .999 fine silver necklace right now so i know for a fact they make them, and i have other pure silver jewlrey. , just wanted to let you know it isnt all 925

  5. johnaldridge740 says:

    if you pla your cards right you can get coins at spot price too, i use one old trick where i go to a couple pawn shops out here wher ei know the owner and when he gets american eagle coins or silver us coins he saves them and i pay him 2 dollars more then he would get at his melt price, so if silve ris 35 per ounce i would pay him 33 acutally because thats what he got at a smelter, so its all about looking for the bargins but i say collect all things silver even 925 junk jewlrey, its all gd

  6. johnaldridge740 says:

    the only ( bullion ) i buy i samerican eagle 1 oz bullion coins because they are guarnteed by the gov as to purity and weight , so they retain their resale value better then other bullion products, i also have some englehard 10 oz bars because again as bullion it retains the same value as coinage but ppl who buy apmex or scottsdale, silver or a host of other ( generic ) bullion are getting ripped off , they usually loose 2 to 4 dollars per ounce for it being off brand bullion,

  7. Stillwater900 says:

    I’m actually in the jewelry business on top of being a gold hound, I’ve handled thousands of pieces of jewelry, spanning the last 3 centures in age, so I’ve got a pretty damn good eye. You’re right, that Victorian rolled gold will trick you, but you can usually find a spot where the brass is showing through on a piece that old.

    People tell me all the time that I can’t possibly tell it just from the look, but you’d be really surprised. I’ve just seen SOOO much jewelry in my life

  8. Stillwater900 says:

    First of all, there is no karat silver, thats just with gold. All silver jewelry is 92.5% silver, its called sterling, thats the standard. All of it.

    I don’t buy jewelry from RETAIL stores dude, from estate sales and thrift stores. I bought $275 worth of 14k gold yesterday for about 10 bucks. I’ve got around ten POUNDS of 92.5% silver, around 5 or $6,000, that I paid under 500 bucks for in total.

    (Your retail prices are way off, sterling rings rarely go over 20 or 30 bucks.. Not that I pay it)

  9. BusyBeeCompany says:

    gold but i never take it for granted..the weight can be adjusted, they can place iron bars into less then solid silver bars to increase the weight.

    A simple set of tests finds weight to volume, VDI from md units, test acids, also checking weight against other exact coins/rings helps.

    Thats why i tend to but wedding rings..the stones arnt there to get in the way of measuring the weight to volume..my way..not suggesting your way…you can dangle a wand over yours…just explaining me

  10. BusyBeeCompany says:

    That gold can be thick plated, ive had my mother buy one peice once at an auction and sold it quickly to a guy who then tried to get his money back when it turned out to not be 100% gold but a 20% plate over with the karat stamp place on it.

    I stated what i do..i also have rolled gold that looks identicle to gold..have had so called 14k gold lots arrive to my house and found under the loop that i could infact flake the gold off one of the rings so sent it back.

    I have yellow, mild and white

  11. Stillwater900 says:

    In a SHTF scenario, lets be honest, no one is going to be trading precious metals, thats a fatasy. Only food, water, other resources. If the shit REALLY hit the fan, you can’t do anything with an ounce of silver, why one earth would you trade food for it??

  12. Stillwater900 says:

    I’m not sure what you’re trying to tell me? I’m very observant and I have good nearsight, so I don’t even need a magnet or a loupe or acid. I’ve got about ten pounds of sterling silver and over 10 grand in gold that way. So what exactly are you trying to tell me?

  13. Stillwater900 says:

    Are you kidding? I have over TEN POUNDS of sterling silver, about 5 grand that I paid less that 500 bucks for. Not to mention $10,000 in gold. Bullion is for suckers!!

  14. Stillwater900 says:

    I invest in jewelry because I pay WAYYYY under spot for it. Like 1/50th spot. Beat that with bullion!

  15. Stillwater900 says:

    Well you weigh it, how else would you determine the value of something made of precious metal?

  16. Stillwater900 says:

    A sterling chain for 75 bucks is not a good deal if you want to invest in it, unless it weighs 75 grams, since its about a dollar a gram. You’re paying way over spot for jewelry from retailers, its NOTTTT for investing. Italian silver isn’t better than other places, they make tons of jewelry and a lot of it is fake. And yes, the amount of silver in it will determine the value of the silver… Thanks for clearing that up. Lol.

  17. BusyBeeCompany says:

    I have a big plastic bag full of ‘costum jewelry’ which is a dime a dozen and so much of it looks silver, some is plated so it looks good…i also have my collection of silver on my page so know what silver looks like and i also have a collection of 9k, 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k and 24k so know the color difference in yellow gold but also know we have three tones of each level…i check my purchases out with mag glass, magnet, weight and metal detector against my other gold…trust no one

  18. cowtippingrocks says:

    ive been thinking of the 1/25th ounce coins. they are selling for about 118 dollars each, but the gram bars are probably what ill invest in next :D

  19. Stillwater900 says:

    Dude, you clearly don’t know anything about this issue… The vast majority of chains marked sterling ARE sterling. Second, I’ve never had trouble selling scrap in 10 years. What on earth makes you think no one is interested in it??

    I don’t think you understand what this guy, and I, are doing. We buy sterling and gold from estate and yard sales from people who don’t know what it is. I have over 10 POUNDS of sterling I paid less than 500 bucks for, and $10,000 in gold. Who’s the idiot now?

  20. Stillwater900 says:

    Who is paying over spot for jewelry? This guy, as well as I, get it at estate sales from people who don’t know its silver. I’ve got ten POUNDS of sterling that I paid less than 500 bucks for. Not to MENTION $10,000 in 14k gold jewelry… Bullion is for suckers.

  21. Stillwater900 says:

    Whats “gay” about candlesticks? ‘Bout a hundred bucks worth of sterling there

  22. Stillwater900 says:

    Very very little jewelry is fake, which is an item marked 14k but base metal. I don’t even bother to take a magnet with me, or even a loupe. I can tell gold a mile off. Just got 250 bucks worth today for 5 bucks.

  23. Stillwater900 says:

    The most good chains of silver? Lol… Ignoring the grammar there, ALL chains are 925.

  24. Stillwater900 says:

    Well you know you don’t have to buy a whole ounce, they sell it in grams, like 50 bucks

  25. Stillwater900 says:

    Yeah, I mean I’ve got about ten pounds of silver in the past 2 years, it all fits into an ammo box, not really THAT difficult to store. Plus, I probably paid around 500 for all of it. Bullion is for suckers
