I have searched the web for hours regarding this and can't even find one mention.
    Does anyone know about this. I would be very grateful if someone in the know could let me in on it a bit
    Also can a piece of 99.99 silver ever fail the neo magnet test under certain circumstances?
    your Advice will be very much appreciated.
    Regards,

    I guess it has to do wit the " bulk modulus", under different pressures a piece of the same volume / density undergoes a different volume deformation ( or whatever it is called). I guess that when the press pressure when coining a batch can be slightly different and give a slightly different thickness. I am not a metallurgist, but can imagine that pressures ( even with our nowaday machinery) can be different from day to day and compress the blank in a different way.

    My two cents

    nope all ASE generic and bars, many bars, many ASE's, several unopened boxes....no canadian maples..never have held them in the core stack. not unusual for a USA stacker. i would think... agin, have hld them , have bought them, but always to resell, since they sell well on the bay and to others..

    I used to love the maples, till it's time to sell. Not bad on eBay, but if you have to go to a brick and mortar, Eagles are better in America.

    When I stack I mix it up, some in mind for quick sale, other for eBay. eBay isn't bad once you go through the hoops. Anyone keeping score I finally got my car. Picked up a 04 Subaru Wagon with 165k for $2400! Like a lot of people I can't save anything! But I do like to buy gold and silver, hopefully my "new" car will last a few years while I add to the stack. At bare bones watching spot creep up....lol

    The amount of money I save on financing, collision, payments helps ease the loss from buy to sell, however it is mitigated it allows me to gamble and keep a cover on spot.

    My thought is I lost 755 ish on my 2.55 oz stack. But If I didn't buy it, it would have been pizzas,beers, nights out! Then I would be financing locking up money I have to pay while buying coins is voluntary.

    I'm not a fan of maples or philharmonics because around here they are traded just like generics.
