A2A with Patrick Heller of Liberty Coin Service


Even if you're not a collector or numismatic enthusiast, I urge you to listen to this podcast. I learned a lot today by visiting with Patrick Heller. You'll likely learn quite a bit, too.

Among the topics discussed over the course of this 43-minute call:

  • The likelihood of a new precious metal confiscation program.
  • Which type of bullion is least likely to be counterfeited.
  • The subtle differences between the recognized coin grading systems.
  • A logical "ratio" of numismatics to bullion for your portfolio.
  • And what about "junk silver"? From where is it sourced? How much of it is out there?

Again, almost everyone will find something interesting in this call so I urge you to give it a listen when you have some time. Thanks again to Pat for joining us today.

I should have signed in for the A2A. Anyway i bought a few graded numis 4 years ago, more by mistake than any other reason. Just recently when i checked the prices (in fiat) almost all the values were higher, some significantly. I know liquidity will be a problem. and bartering with them near impossible should there be a system collapse but i got a little lucky so far.

Still stacking

be ready

Excellent A2A

I had a recent experience that might be of interest to fellow coin collectors. A relative died about 6 months ago and I was given a container that she put pennies in for charity. It turned out to be the equivalent of 3 roll of pennies with the most recent date being 1949. She was not a coin collector and the container had to be broken open so they were untouched for 66 years. Other than the uncirculated 1949 pennies (I suspect she only did it for a year) there were no premium coins in the lot. I figure a very generous valuation would be $15.00. I sent a check for $50.00 to the charity and figure I came out ahead, because I had more than $50.00 worth of fun going through them. There was one nickel and one dime in the lot. I guess they were put in on a day she felt flush. The dime, of course, was silver. I had expected to find some better dates, but I guess that rare dates are just that. FWIW

If We Did God's Work

What if we printed the money, controlled the mrkets, regulated the process, owned Central Banking, and were responsible to the people... Could we possibly be as evil? Would we be different? If not, why not?

Same - O Same - O

The manipulation only grows in frequency and openness.

WTI Next Move???

Well WTI Crude appears to be hitting a crossroads. 50 day MA sits at at 51.60

and MACD is still positve. A break through 55 and it could run a bit. If you are bullish

and want a good 3x leverage crude ETF i encourage you to look at UWTI... On flip side if this rally

fails to break through 55 i think we will retest the lows.. Declining volume doesnt make me want to jump in quite yet though

Happy trails to all

4 oz. recent similar convert story

similar to your LCS report, a couple of days ago a recent convert reported that his Silver finally arrived.

He had purchased 6 monster boxes which he quantitatively described as "about a 200 lb. purchase" lol

whether it's 1 oz. 10 oz. or 1000 oz, every acquisition has the same excitement! And it never diminishes no matter how long you've been stacking or how much you already have. It is great to see indeed.

There is no market......only interventions.

Excellent A2A

Way more informative than I originally thought it may be. A big thanks to Mr. Heller, and I'll be checking out his articles for some much needed learning.

Enjoy the Bahamas!
