    yes spot vs spot is the way to go and that is what i meant stating generic vs generic. although that may have been less clear than what you explain, insidedealer. when i time a ratio trade i use the most generic ag and au i have in my stack and make the exchange for likekind of the opposite metal. ie, generic bar for generic bar as close to spot as i can find. usually it is two separate transactions even with the same dealer/supplier.

    The variation between spot and retail of various rounds/coins is the very reason why I started to track a variety of GSR rations. Spot GSR is great when you are trading paper. When you are trading fizz, the numbers can present a different reality. The variation of that reality over time is a piece of information that I like to be able to consider before making a purchase or sale.

    This is no longer posted in the Fed Minutes of January 2008, but still quoted here - https://www.nbcnews.com/id/wbna22592939. The FOMC minutes still quote MR. Reifschneider. as stating the same thing.

    I agree. I like the way you compare actual coins. Thanks for your updates.

    a fun fact... interestingly, i just took inventory as i do occasionally. only simple formula used of # of 1 troy ounce total silver against same of gold holdings. i consider all fractionals at their decimal values of actual silver weight or actual gold weight. ie. aprox $1.40 of face 90% silver equals 1 troy ounce. my holdings comparative ratio of (ag ozt/au ozt) is within 1% of the current listed silver to gold ratio of 87 to 1.
