Is it safe to buy gold eagle from a local dealer?

or should I go with well known name like apmex?

Local dealer is cheaper: he charges $60 over spot.

Local with cash. No paper

Local with cash. No paper trail. As long as it's not from someone's car trunk.

Just in from my local...1

Just in from my local...

1 oz. gold Buffalo

10 - 10oz NTR bars

5- 1oz Kookaburras

The Buffalo was +$70 but gave me spot at $1515 when I would have sworn it was $1560something.  Cash works!

Also picked up 100 rounds of 5.56 and 200 rounds of 9mm, but that was a different shop cool

Spot plus $20 isn't bad. My

Spot plus $20 isn't bad. My local does 1/10th spot + 14% for 1/10, 1/4 spot + 12% for 1/4, 1/2 spot + 10% for 1/2, and who the hell knows for 1oz because I'm not a high roller. :)
