    Today I picked up six oz of silver on my way home from Telluride.
    A 1985 mexican libertad, a 2017 maple leaf in a capsule, a 1984 engelhard prospector round with the big E on the reverse, a "dont tread on me" Boston tea party round, a happy valentine's bar from 86 and another random bar with a stagecoach on it.
    Just a small conversion from fiat and add to the savings slowly but surely.
    Supply has been a little thin at the shops I go to so I've made it a habit to stop and check on my way through. I try to buy what I can and stay consistent.

    I like the oddball and random weird stuff sometimes haha. It keeps it interesting!

    Just the 1 onza for the Libertads.
    I only have 4 or 5 of them but I love those things. The mexican artwork is just plain awesome and I wish I came across more of them. Beautiful coins.
    My others are all the same, 1 ouncers too.
    I've never come across the other sizes but I've seen them online.

    I didn't know that?

    Mine are all 1 ounce. I first bought a few libertads off SilverPete. I liked them so much I then went and bought a bunch from elsewhere. All 1 ounce though.

    No doubt the gold to silver ratio will narrow further especially if inflation eventually comes, but silver is really volatile, takes courage. :)

    I picked up 5 more Peace dollars today but nothing more, traveling for work. Waiting to go to my usual bullion guy the other direction my next day off. Hes a little cheaper and more geared towards turnover so I spend more with him.
    The Peace dollars are mostly culls and one has a dent in the rim.
    It may have been in a gangster's pocket in 1926 when he was thrown from a bridge. Who knows.
    They are my worst 5 silver dollars I'd say but they are my babies and I lovem.

    My other guy might get a thousand from me if he has some stock or even a quarter oz of gold mixed in is fine. I'm easy either way.
    It's such an awesome savings for me and works so well.
    Cash would be gone so so easy.
