    most of my stuff was bought at 4.50 an ounce for silver...
    i don't have too much gold...


    and, that's MELT value. the intrinsic value usualyl infaltes double what the market for the metal does.

    it's awesome when you see your 30 or 40 dollar investment you made 2 years ago selling on ebay for 150-175 :p

    Wasn't silver around $6 a year ago?
    This dude i was working with said he could get it for $5.50 an ounce which may or may not have been a good deal at the time?

    its never too late... you're just going to pay a lot more for it. :p

    in 1980, silver spiked to over 50 bucks an ounce melt value.

    gold was way down at like 380 something a little while ago.. maybe 4 or 5 years.. crazy.. nothing like a 30% increase on your investment.

    If only i had capital
