    While searching on ebay this afternoon, i came across several listings like these, from the same seller:
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5-1-GRA...5&algv=default&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982

    They are all advertised as "0.999 PURE SILVER BARS" and are commanding about $5 a bar, way above spot.

    Ive just sent a message to ask, but beware.

    IF IT SAYS 0.999%, that means its less than 1% pure!

    They arent technically cheating or anything, its just very sneaky to unknowing buyers

    I'd say they're probably real silver 1gram bars, .999 or 999 same thing.. But they're a bit ugly and $25 bucks postage is a bit of a killer.
