    HI Guys

    Just picked up my first large ( for me) silver order and they dealer supplied me with 1KG OPM bars.

    After doing some reading when I got home, I see OPM got booted out of the LMBA group for association with Mexican cartels and money laundering....

    Does this mean I got sold dodgey bars that will be worth less on resale since they not as easily sold later on, because they are OPM branded and the scandal attached to the brand?

    Nope, no one buying metal will care about that, spot is spot.

    Thanks for the reassurance, only a few weeks into stacking so got a tremendous amount to learn yet before I have a little more than no idea.
