Federated Mint,
North Canton, Ohio

Wife brought home an ad from The Seattle Times newspaper so we could laugh over it together. This is the very same ad, (with zip codes, state, and city changes) that we saw.
Bags O' Silver.jpg

Whatta scam, I thought, $29.00 an ounce, wonder how many people fall for this? Wonder if these guys make enough to pay for a full page ad like this? They must or they wouldn't do it. So I read on through it, those full bags are ten bars — but, oh, you can get a bag with one hundred bars in it if you hurry and meet the two day deadline. And then further down I see;

Can I buy one bar
Noticed that it said you would have to "... pay the standard $50 per heavy half ounce bar..."

It's twenty nine bucks per half ounce bar?!

Big bags, big pictures of bars, big buildup, big deadline — what could go wrong?

Wow! They do got some prices.
They have a pretty good following at the BBB site also. Wonder why /snark

Looking around the interwebs I see they place this ad in papers around the country every few month or so. Look for one coming near you.
:Happy:

2019 ASE $79.00 each, 5 of them for $285.00

looks like that's nearly a $115.00 savings when you 'buy 5'

just think of the savings if you bought an entire roll :autumn:
