for the first time can be fun, I bought my first silver off Ebay.
The next time I am ready to buy silver I will place an ad in the local shopper. People have lots of old silver coins in their junk drawers, they would clean them out if they find they are worth something. Offer a little under melt value, if you get them your in the black.
Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed
