Were Have I Been One Gram of Gold For 8,887.00!!

Coins | Mike

Ok I know I miss things sometimes. But I must of fell asleep for fifty or a hundred years. I was just killing time searching Ebay. I decided to check the Gold. Why ? I don't buy gold on Ebay. Well I came upon a price for a gram a single gram of gold for the low low price 8,887.00 for a single gram of P.AM.P. gold.!! This is not an error. The seller never answered me. He claims go have sold 1,139One gram bars. But he will give you a break if you buy two!8,798.33 . Now that's a break..I thought of buying five or six. Now this is why I don't buy gold or expensive coins. I could own 4 one ounce bars with this price. Now he has sold 1,139 bars at this price. Do the math an ounce is 31.1 grams. Lets time that per gram of the seller. That would come to 276,385.70. I think that's a deal. Its not an error. This is what he claims. Enlarge his page. Read it for yourself. This is the kind of things that goes on. I'm not saying all eBay is all bad. Due your homework. Look for honest sellers. Read the ones that have negative feedback. Be careful.I first thought it was an error. But no. So buyer beware. Or you spend allot more than you should. I have also bought many good items on ebay. Just do your homework! Mike.

The Statue Of Liberty

Medals | Mike

Ok my friends. This is the third attempt to write this blog. The third time is a charm! ....Now I went to write this on February 8. Instead I wrote on the reverse. That is how much history this medal has. This is probably one of the greatest statues known.Its on coinage . There must be a million different souvenirs out there. .....The Statue of Liberty Enlightening The World! This was a gift from the French. It was dedicated on October 28,1886. It became a national Monument in 1924. It was designed and built by a few people Frederic Auguste Bartholds. The frame work was done by Gustave Eiffel. Now the statue has seven rays coming from her head they stand for the seven seas and the seven continents. The idea of this statue came from a French historian Eduardo de Labulaye at the close of the civil war.There are many symbols on the statue. The famous poem you all know the end . Give me your tired etc...If you enlarge the bronze plate you can read the whole thing. The writer was Emma Lazarus. The medal was made by the Medallic Art company. There is a massive chain at her feet it is broke at a point. It means we broke from oppression to become a Democracy. The book that she holds has our date of Independence done in Roman numerals. The torch such brings light to the world. By the way it gets hit hundreds of times by lightning during the year. The photo below is one of the most dramatic.Look at the details on the obverse. The small ships the two bridges and the buildings as it would be seen in 1965. ...Of course there were many problems building this massive statue. The weather took its toll and it had to be rebuilt. Kids sent cents donations came from everywhere to keep this beacon of freedom shining its light. Now I left out the politics because there was so much and this is a blog about a statue! I will give you the break down . It was made of Bronze, its weight is 111.9 Diameter is 63.5 and the thickness is 5.2 in. Now I will try and save this. I hope you get to enjoy it. It stayed up!. Wow I hope Pete finds the problem. Please if you get a chance read about this statue. I can't count on the coinage and medals its on. It is a very big reminder of our history. Read Feb 8 blog. Its on the reverse. Plenty of history on this entire medal.They also say the face is that of a pagan god!!And surrounded by 13 stars. One of the best thought out medals including the historical reverse!! Please enlarge the picture of the bronze plate you can read the whole thing!!

BUYING GOLD AGAIN!!

Coins | Mike

Hi my friends. I hope you are doing well.Many years ago I had been buying gold. Who wouldn't an 750 an ounce. That's 24 karat gold of famous baseball players. I had bought a memorabilia store for my wife to keep her busy. We had players come to the store for the kids. When I would come to open the store the line was around the block! ..I still remember there faces of them and there dad or mom. And me. !! Back then they would stay for two hours. But back then the players did it for the kids. I would say its still along line. Don't worry about it they would say!. Well we needed a new car I took the Gold out of the safe one day and my friend ,wife and me went to sell it. Everyone was buying it. Gold was selling at 1950. 00 an ounce or 1850.00. We went in to the hotel were they were buying gold. I looked around and went to an open line.I showed the woman the gold and she said 1500.!! I said no you won't. The gentleman came over and I showed him the gold he said 1850.00 I said deal. So he went to his safe and I put the gold on the table . He said fair deal . Yes sir!
