    Probably been 5+ years since I have found a pre 65 silver coin. Then again, I have taken the mark of the beast and deal 99.9% of the time in using a card for my purchases. I can go many months without dealing in cash and getting coin change.

    World renowned precious metals expert Andrew Maguire says pay attention to the new rule that goes into effect at the end of March that will allow gold to become fully valued and monetized as a tier 1 asset for banks around the world. Maguire explains, “Basel III is coming into effect in less than two weeks from now, and it will effectively remonetize physical gold. Of course, that is a big deal. While the synthetic players shuffle chips in this siloed CME casino, the insider bullion banks are positioning for higher gold prices. That is it right there. Bottom line is what are the big boys doing?”

    Yesterday was the 20th of the month and you know what that means. New gold data from the Central Bank of Russia! They bought 31.1 tons in February, bringing total to 2,149 tons. Washington is finally noticing; part of the reason I was there Wednesday. This is the new Great Game.

    One of the best vids on silver I've seen;

    Great vid.
    The other day I ordered a few rounds, and for the heck of it, a few copper bars.

    I got a strange penny in change today. On the back side, above the memorial, where it says USofA, the "States of Ame" and "E Pluribus Unum" are missing. It doesn't appear that they were removed in any way, just didn't get imprinted on the coin. That means nothing tho, as I'm not a coin expert. The edge of the rim goes all the way around, if that meams anything.
    On the front side, the last number of the date is really hard to see. Had to use a bright light and finally made it out as a faint #8. The date is 1978. The "7" wasn't too strong either.

    I'm guessing it came from some grandparent's collection, as I can't see it being in circulation for the last 41 years

    It might e worth getting it checked out by a coin expert.

    Did an online search; it results from a "grease filled die", or partially filled I guess. Anyway, not worth enough to bother with except to keep with the rest of the pennies.

    Instead of copper "rounds" or bullion, I have a partial coil of copper pipe (leftovers) that I can easily cut into pieces for trading (if necessary).
    Considering the way prices are bouncing around, I have enough silver.

    Or keep it intact and trade it to someone wanting to make a still ....or make a still and barter some moonshine.

    What were those sabot rounds that were like a jacket with no filler, and the facing edge was sharp? Copper pipe of the right diameter would make the foundation for rounds like that. They're the kind of rounds the batfe used on Dave Koresh at Waco since they eat thru vests.

    Precious metals are normally sold in Troy ounces (ozt). A Troy ounce is 31.2 grams while a avoirdupois ounce is 28.35 grams. To make things more confusing, a troy pound is 12 Troy ounces.

    1/4 rigid copper pipe is 9mm OD---probably use rigid copper.

    7/32 is 5.56mm

    A .22 shell will also work for 5.56mm round, just remove the base

    Yeah DOOH... About 5 minutes after I messaged you I searched troy ounces Fucking french. Always screwing things up. Damn. I thought I got more than I paid for. Ordered a scale that has all the proper measurements. LOL What a dumbass sometimes. Thanks for letting me know. One of my pet peeves about sites like this, Not enough room for all your messages. I hate deleting them and yeah I try to save them, but who remembers where you saved them on your computer and how to access them in a good manner except the NSA
