    That’s why I prefer 90% bullion.
    Forget the collectible added values.
    If silver hits $100 will collectors pay the premium to buy Mint State Eagles?
    They may be in MS condition, but there are billions of them in collectors hands. They Never circulate as legal tender.
    Real numismatic value stems from Rarity.
    Poured bars are more rare, but are still just bullion.
    The lack of Standards work against bars as well.
    I wouldn’t buy a bar unless it was drilled and acid tested.
    Opinions matter little, Now.

    Great question – I’m over 500 atm.  I would like to have probably 5000 by retirement, if I can – I have at least 25 years to do it in.

  20. Bigstackmcgee says:

    Yeah, I would imagine so – are talking about the ‘GA’ ?

  21. Bigstackmcgee says:

    I can attest that a rare-earth magnet can sniff out counterfeit bars that are plated with a thin layer of silver. They cannot, as you say, disprove thick bars that are plugged with base metals. I’m curious, have you ever heard of something as small as ten ounce bar being plugged? It seems like a lot of work for very little return on the part of the theif. At any rate, as you said, poured bars are not in any way ideal for any sort of SHTF barter scenario.

  22. Bigstackmcgee says:

    The hard drive video I posted was filmed before you (correctly) informed me about my error concerning the effectiveness of a rare-earth magnet on a plated bar. I feel very comfortable that the poured bars I purchased are the real deal. These smaller, poured bars have collectibility, and drilling them out for no reason would affect resale to a collector.

  23. UniqueDesigns41 says:

    No commercial PM seller has any non-destructive way of proving these huge bars are not filled.
    The drilled hole can IMO only enhance its value since it is able to be tested.
    Acid can be poured into the hole. If the acid changes color as it runs out the other end of the drilled cavity, then it is filled with some non precious metal.
    This is only 1 reason why I avoid any thick bars.
    Another is that if the SHTF and silver skyrockets they’re not a portable for bartering at the market.

  24. UniqueDesigns41 says:

    Apparently, you did not re-listen to AboutAGs video on the comparison.
    At 2:20 he states that the Neodynium magnet sliding test will not work on a hollowed out silver bar that has been filled with Lead (or and other non magnetic filler metal.
    If drilling the bars out at the time iof resale was your chosen time, then you may find out years too late that the ‘honest’ seller you got it from is not accepting returns.
    Drilling a non art bar can’t hurt its bullion value but a few grams worth.
