C'mon. Last of the Breed. Everyone has to have at least one.

That's > $45 too much for an ounce of silver...even a perty one. Hard pass.

I'd take 3 generic rounds over that all day long.

Yep, that's a lot of fiat...i'm going to settle for a few bullion pieces to keep my year set, now my 'complete series set', up to date

but 35 coins, in air tites, don't fit into one tube...curses, foiled again
:oops:

if not, it's probably real

You can get a 1996 between $35 and $45 on ebay
so:
2020 Proof Silver Eagle or 1996 Bullion Silver Eagle?


i'd go with the '96 myself, save a few bucks versus the proof coin and get a coin with a built in 'key' element

I won't pay much of a premium for either, but I've stacked quite a few '94-'98 eagles just by snapping up generic lots of eagles. I swear the low mintage years skip across the water better.

High premium stuff never interested me much. I stack weight...boat anchors should be heavy.

i've got a few with bb impacts on them...the lower mintage years take the abuse better than the 'modern stuff' does...weird, it might be from that cheaper Chinese Silver they're making them out of these days, idk

Yeah, don't let that barnacle guy anywhere near your stash bro. You'll be fine.
