A close acquaintance recently endured the passing of her grandfather. Upon opening his savings/accumulations she found, among a LOT of European coins brought back during World War II numerous gold teeth. Now...HE didn't have gold teeth but these are presumably from..."others", acquired and long stashed away during the war as part of his assets. She didn't give me any #'s but despite being initially freaked out she immediately thought of me.
She says "Unsustainable...what should I do with these. Sell for cash, trade for bullion, hold them. You're the only precious metals person I know and trust so could you research this for me?".
These meant a LOT to her grandfather so my first thought is that HE knew the value of gold, in any forms, so it would be a shame and insult to him to sell them off to a cheap scam..keep it in the family. She also knows the value of gold as she is my small town Asst Banker but is hard up for cash-for-the-kids and could not accept my gold bullion barter for her husband's home improvement services. She wants to acquire and hold some gold/metals and this may be their start...small as it may be, but it's a start.
What does the Forum recommend? I'll pass the ideas along to her. Many thanks.
