    So , I've been buying small amounts of silver and gold in case the economy collapses.

    Along with my last order of some cool stuff I decided to throw in a roll of pre 1965 90% silver quarters.

    I took the coins out of the roll and jingled them in my hand and dropped some on the table.

    I noticed the sound that they make was different. I was amazed by it.

    It was a sound my grandparents heard back in the day. The sound of real money.

    My uncle started doing that in the 80's. He bought krugerrand and even showed me a gold bar once. His entire basement was stocked like Costco before they had Costco. Always worried paper money would lose it's value. :crazy:

    You know when you really consider what it's going to be like in a major civil unrest or the collapse of the economy all the silver and gold in the world is going to be completely worthless. For a good while anyway, by then people that are armed to the teeth will have your gold anyway. It's a scam by the fear mongers.
