Taps Across America

Coins | Mike

We all know what today is. Its Memorial Day. It used to be called Decoration Day. A day to remember all those who gave there lives so we can have our freedom. This will be short I'm still recovering. But to think of all those who lost there lives in all our wars is just to much to remember. I can't tell you that number. But we know its very large I usually put up a blog with most of my military coins but the search would take to long. A few years ago someone came up with this idea of playing taps across this great country. Now were ever Americans live they play taps. What ever country. Were I live we have the oldest parade on record. Its also fleet week here in New York All sorts of ships arrived here during the week. So please remember those who's families lost there loved ones. And families that were lost. We have been forgetting these brave men and we shouldn't. But I do see more people coming out going to the Forts in there area. Ours is Fort Hamilton and Fort Wandsworth. Both are on each side of the entrance of the Harbour. So please come out and say thanks. If you play an instrument play taps. Believe me those who are gone will hear it. Thanks And God Bless The United States Of America. And keep those still in service your support they appreciate it!!

Blogs Will Be Coming!

Coins | Mike

Hi everyone. I know its been a while since I posted a blog. This is because of physical reasons and doctors orders. I hope to be back in about two weeks hopefully less time than that. I feel like I'm not contributing to the site but I read some blogs and comment. This is all I can do at this point. However during this period I did become a Life Member. I know the ANA needs money and for given us this space to share make friends I decided why not. They have helped me many times. I want to say thanks to the yng for writing good blogs. I think this is the best group that we have had in a long time. They share there wins and losses. Mostly wins. They bring back memories of when I first started. So I say to the yng thanks for sharing. Below is the new card you get and new number .It also comes with a plaque. When I received it I felt very good that I did this.Those who can should consider becoming a life member. Your helping a organization that has that has helped thousands over the years. They break it down based on years you have been here and they set everything up. My plaque and card are beautiful. So think about it. You will be helping the group that helps us and only asks for a fee. For that reason I believe its worth it.. I'm having a hard time downloading the plaque. I will get that up so you can see what I mean. I told you I would get it. It means allot to me to give back what was given to me for free. New friends some blogs I read twice. I encourage more of us to write one. The research what I have learned here from other collectors you cannot put a price on. Of course with the good there is the bad. That's in every organization.

Silver Shortage Not True

Coins | Mike

Hi ! We have herd all sorts of stories about a silver shortage. I have been investigating this for three months and now have the answer. I received my magazine Numismatic News. Was I shocked. There is no above ground silver shortage. But that's what every dealer on t.v. and elsewhere will tell you. The government years ago put four statues tying the hands of the mint. I believe the mint has told the 18 bulk sellers to say there is a silver shortage. With a glass and enlarging the article you will see the important four. One in particular. The Bill states that the mint can of buy silver a certain price over spot. Now we know about paper silver sold on Wall street.That has upped the spot almost 200%. The government will not lower this because the national debt is 30 trillion dollars. The other three are basically the same. No silver in any form. Planchets or bars. They will not even lower it. So what happens coins like the Morgan and Peace dollar have already been cancelled. The Purple Heart they have no idea when they will be shipped. Remember this was a pre-sale. Not cheep either. Almost 100.00 for one the other one I think I sells for 72.00. I see higher prices.Medals as you know are selling for 160.00. The choice of coins I believe will be limited.. There selling the Eagles made at different mints in sets of five from last year to this year. The end of last year. So as the heading says the government has tied the mints hands. I'm sorry you might not be able to read it but its there in black and white. I will try and get a better picture. They can't buy bar silver and make there own planchets. How long will this go on? No one knows. So the factors are the four statues ,Wall street driving up the spot. This leeds to more counterfeiting as you read in the last one. Please enlarge the picture. Use a magnifying glass but its there. Please try and read this. It affects us all! Remember Eagles were 49.00 went to 69.00 today 89.00. Were will it stop?

Counterfeiting

Coins | Mike

Hi everyone. This will be my last blog for about two weeks. Surgery on cataracts. But it's very important. Just look at the add below. This showed up on the net and magazines. Yes its on the rise at an alarming rate. Why no silver. That's what they say. The truth is the government passed four statutes tying the mints hand from buying silver. One the important one statues they shall not buy silver a certain price over spot. This was driven up by paper silver sold on wall street. The fact were 30 trillion in debt has a direct bearing on this. You can enlarge the article about the add. Enlarge it. That's why programs have been cancelled. The two Morgan's for this year gone. There will be more. Now this has gone up because of the mints hands being tied. They are not allowed to buy silver a certain price over spot. This has gone up because of paper silver sold on Wall street. They will not relax this statue because we are30 trillion in debt. So for one action there is a reaction. Counterfeiting. It has gone up at an enormous rate. You can read part of the article if you blow it up.
