Fake Silver

by packgeist

this is why you need the scale, and SCHWERTER ACID SALTS to test the metal content.

always trust-but verify!
i do not doubt there are fakes out there, but a trained eye can easily tell the difference.
i bought beautiful 'chinese' fake morgans, i did not notice the ad actually said same as real. they are real close, the still have some value.
the righteous thing is they are actually 60% SILVER, but not the 90% they should be. oh well, lesson learned, not completely burned. i got them cheap enough to be ahead.i know now the physical difference which allows them not to be actual counterfeits, a dealer would spot it in a split second. the '2' of 1882 is noticably thicker, screaming that it fake/reproduction.
beware!

my wife likes to tear things apart to recover copper. i taught her the magnet trick. motors can have copper coated steel windings, not worth it.
but also aluminum wire can be copper coated. you need to cut it and look at the center.
in canada before we got rid of the penny they went to bronze, and then copper plated steel. but the government soon found out that people could use a magnet to remove them from a pile of pennies. they quickly went to copper plated zinc. which is not magnetic either. so now you have to carefully sort them by year. and in the usa they have used copper plated zinc since the early seventies.
the early american dollars and half dollars were 90% silver up to about 1965. the kennedys were 90% but then they went to 90% clad over 40% cores.

thats very awsome, if the world had more people like that we would be in a very good place.
like doctors without boarders doing very good work.

to all.
i have freinds who hold precious metal stocks, atf whatever. not good. if there is a run on the banks, which has happened before, you will not be able to access your wealth. unfortunately on contracts, the same ounce is sold over and over, its basically like the fractional banking practice.

if you dont hold it in your hand, you dont own it.

one more thing NEW
by: packgeist

just beware that so called 'german silver' is not really silver, it is actually pewter, which has value itself. it would not be a mis-representation as such,it is what its called.

dont worry about day to day fluctuations of precious metals markets. a true investor is in it for the long haul. the richest people and smartest countries are buying all they can while the stock market proclaims you can make more money in the markets. the economy is in a speed-wobble before another crash. everyone knows 'fiat' currency is an illusion.

i would not recomend the higher priced precious metals like platinum, i do not know how you would verify what it is. stick with gold and silver and copper, true money from the beginning of time.

i would buy small fractional gold, if the value skyrockets no-one would be able to make change for 1oz. 1/10 oz.

magnets NEW

i think i forgot to say that magnets are your best freind when spotting fakes. platinum/gold/silver/copper/bronze are non-ferrous metals (non-magnetic)
watch out for people selling plated/coated coins and bars. they may say its 99.9% silver but omit the word plate.
a magnet will never stick to precious metals.

Feedback from readers...
"Silver Coin Investor is cutting edge and has it all...the value I receive from your website and The Lewis and Mariani Silver Letters is far, far greater than the small subscription cost. I am finding that I don't need any other source for silver research and knowledge. Thanks Jeff. I mean that.

Thanks for the course and keep up the good work!"
