Gold and Silver

Yesterday one of my workers brought me a bag of coins to exchange into dollar bills. When I was looking through them, I found a standing liberty quarter and a few quarters dated before 1964. The standing liberty quarter had no date on it so I couldn't tell when it was produce, but I know that the few quarters that were pre-1964 are silver. I think he did not know what he had and my father told me it's yours, keep them. What do you think?

Lol no, but he is salvadorian, not that that matters but he wouldn't know or care that much. In fact, I happen to talk about it with him before and he said "take them, I have no use for them." I'm just curious of what year it is.

The standing Liberty quarter was minted from 1916 to 1930. If the right breast on Lady Liberty is exposed, then it was minted in 1916 to early 1917.

^ are you sure that wasnt just a wardrobe malfunction? Seriously though I would keep them. Not sure on the years but bring them to coin dealer they should be able to tell you what they are worth.

That is really not worth any more than just the silver. With out a date it's not gradable. No collection value. Just scrap. Current scrap value of silver coins is 18 - 19 times face value.

That sucks, but at least it's cool to the touch. Anybody any rare gold and silver coins?

I stay away from rare coins, because when SHTF, the rarity premium disappears.

And right now is a great buying opportunity if you want to stack your precious.

AND, this is required reading for all Americans. Otherwise, can you speak Hindi when the rural and farming folks from India decide to open American-side operations within their businesses? East Indians for the most part can speak English, as it is an administrative language within Indian government.

Gold Always Glitters In India: Will Curbing Imports Save The Economy? - International Business Times

The contention is about the importation of gold in massive numbers into India, which has always used and valued gold, as it is part and parcel of India's culture and religion.

The government of India says, "Quantum of import of gold ... is a clear indication (that) large section of community...want (to) investment in dead asset only with expectation that value would appreciate," said Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee at a function in Mumbai last week. He said that "there is a need to spread financial literacy to encourage people to invest in market instruments" and dissuade them from investing in gold."

But the Indian public know better - "However, those Indians who have spent their fortunes on gold and a section of analysts beg to differ. They say although gold imports affect the country's BOP position in the short-term, India's gold reserves will benefit the people and the country in the longer run. They feel there is no basis in the saying that gold is an idle asset. "From investors' point of view, gold is not an idle asset. When it is appreciating, it is not a dead asset for the holder," says Jayesh Nathwani of FXWire."

Plus, this is protection against government's tendency to steal through stealth theft of people's money via inflation. A stealth tax, if you will.

You need to understand as Americans that we are way behind the wealth curve compared to Indians. I believe by now, they have 19-20,000 TONS of gold held in private hands. There are several problems with American's approach to gold/silver, and wealth.

1) We have been diseducated from gold/silver as money by the people who put us on pure fiat money by August 1971. This occurred less than 40 years after FDR made bullion gold ownership illegal in the US. Yes ILLEGAL, and silver coinage was no longer made from 1965-forward with rare exceptions.

2) The jewelry that is used by Americans is typically 10, 14, or 18 karat gold. The gold jewelry used by Indians is typically 18, 22, or even 24 karat, but mostly 22 carat to add some hardness. Indians will recognize their jewelry as money, whereas, we don't (just an asset like an expensive table or art piece).

3) The reason for that is because of the long-lived cultural affinity for gold as I mentioned before as well as it being money, whereas Americans do not see jewelry in the same light, but just as adornment, and because adornment is popular, they would rather that the gold be made stronger to withstand regular usage.

4) I hate to say this, but when Americans are selling their gold to pay bills or stay afloat, the Indians are buying the stuff in massive amounts.

This doesn't even take in consideration the Chinese people, whose gold market has been liberalized recently with government support (they have been historically silver lovers).

How often does that clasp have to be remade after the piece breaks off after so many bends?

I have bent it countless of times, I don't think it needs remaking cause it's so soft.

It will eventually break.

The stress from bending will cause micro fractures that will eventually grow.

Even though 24k is extremely soft and malleable but everything has it's limits so just keep an eye on it.

Hopefully when it does break you know it and don't lose it.

My pleasure.
WAY back in the day I was a goldsmith in Alaska.
Got to do a few repairs in my time.

Just would hate to see you lose it. It's gorgeous.
