JM Bullion cashed my check for silver eagles April 8, I called there today and Alex said the order was marked "priority" which, as far as I can tell, has no meaning. Alex couldn't assure me that they would ship tomorrow, or next week, or before the earth dropped out of its orbit and spiraled into the sun. It was just "as soon as they are able"
I tried them because they are TFMR advertisers. They were my favorite for a while. They are not my favorite any more.
I just got the shipment email today after leaving a voice message and sending an email last night. Basically "get me a ship date or a refund" Perhaps the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Perhaps coincidence.
The silver eagles have landed. I may never know if my whining made any difference.
As has been my custom, I go out & buy 100+ ozs of some type of bullion when silver is getting slaughtered as today.
But today, JM Bullion has a significantly better price than provident (my usual trusted dealer) on the 120 austrian silver phils I ordered and free shipping to boot. So I placed my order with them instead.
Hope I don't wind up tearing my hair out; I don't have much left!
