  1. I know this is way off topic, BUT i like your sense of logic and wholistic approaches…
    Can you offer your opinion on what you think is best for precious metal purchases, factoring in the fact that all metals are going down in value ( sometimes when stock market goes down, sometimes when market goes up)…it seems to me that platinum may have better potential than gold or silver…and silver seems better than gold (at least as of dec 15 2021) For sake of brevity and clarity, my focus is on bullion products ( no nuismatic)… sorry about the diversion off topic…

    1. No problem! It’s always a tough call, but for reference, I have 2-3x more gold than silver. Depends why you are stacking. I am more of a gold focused person for investing, and don’t have much platinum, but I haven’t done much research on the platinum space.

    2. @Treasure Town thanks for the timely input ! I mostly agree with you…when you say “2-3X more gold than silver” are you referring to ounces or money value? also it seems that when gold goes down 1% in value, silver goes down 2% or more (lately) and i am tempted to consider more silver allocation ( especially if the gold to silver ratio goes above 100)…thanks for your time and effort you put into considering your subscribers !

  2. Another ‘Thumbs up’ Christian. I wasn’t expecting to be around but I was able to catch this today. A great deal of these d.d. errors are difficult to see, simply using a Loupe, so I definitely to invest in getting a Scope. Unfortunely, funds are tight so that’s why I mainly look for the more noticeable errors such as Strike Throughs, Die Cracks, or Cuds. I was wondering if you have gone through any 2019 – 2021 rolls of Dimes or Nickles looking for those types of errors. Sorry being so long,Thanks.
