As the price of physical Silver continues to de-couple from the quoted price of paper silver (KITCO, etc.), one must apply a bit of Common Sense when considering the purchase of physical Silver.
Tip: Consider the promotional costs of the firm you might buy from.
Full page ads on the cover of the local Penny Saver; promotions on talk radio and 30 second television commercials cost a lot of money.
Who do you think is going to cover those costs?
When shopping for Silver, I always seek the seller with the lowest overhead.
That is usually a shop located in a working class neighborhood.
I not only get the best prices, but end up supporting a local merchant who is usually an active member of the community.
It’s a win-win for all concerned.
