precious metals- Troy Ounce vs Ounce

First-time precious metals buyers are often confused by the difference between a troy ounce (ozt) and a "regular" ounce, especially when their 100 oz silver bar actually weighs 6.85 lbs on the scale instead of 6.25 lbs. Did they receive more silver than they paid for? The answer lies in an antiquated system of measurement still used today for precious metals known as troy weights.

What I love are the auctions

What I love are the auctions on eBay that are bags of random "junk" silver and they base them in conventional ounces.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Thanks for That Tidbit
