My friend Captain Rick sent me an email the other day and he mentioned that a year or two ago he could sometimes find junk gold at 20% or 30% below spot price. Now he says those days are over and the price is above spot price in most cases. If you happen to come by it on the street, know that at the very least you’ll be able to sell it for spot on ebay pretty quick.
As “expensive” as gold is these days, nothing indicates its going to go down in price any time soon. If gold is too much for you, dear friend at least buy a couple silver eagles or some pre 65 silver dimes each month. Son enough the stash starts growing and whatever happens you can be sure that if the economy collapses the price of your precious metals will go up in inverse proportion to how hard the US dollar falls.
