Change In My Silver Stacking Strategy... So I have had a major change in my silver stacking strategy, I have decided that any silver I acquire from now on has to be done on the cheap! As many of you know, I'm always doing garage sales and visiting secondhand and op shops. I always find silver cheaply and I used to sell it off, but now I'm keeping it but I'm also not buying any "retail priced" silver. I recently swapped out all my silver bars that I had bought at the high GSR for gold, so no real loss in the GSR swap, just the opportunity cost if (when) the GSR drops. That being said, by my new silver stack is being made up way under spot cost, I think I'll come out ok. Below is a picture of my pick ups in the last 2 weeks. The spoons cost me $2 each from the Vinnies, The coins except the 2oz kook all owe me $5 for the lot. I bought a box of coins at a garage sale last weekend for $15 and sold the pennies off for $10 leaving all the silver coins costing me $5. The earring is 6 grams of 925 and cost 50 cents. I bought the "hammered" 2oz kook of gumtree cheaply yesterday. I also recently bought this lot off here: https://www.silverstackers.com/forums/index.php?threads/sold.93498/ I think once I have cleaned up the gold ring, I'll get $50 for it leaving me nearly 80% of an ounce of silver owing me $7. This is an unconventional way of stacking but for me it's fun!
