Sorry - I meant millions of dollars worth of silver recovered...

From the actual news story on July 18, 2012...

"At Wednesday’s market value, the 1.4 million troy ounces of silver (48 tons) recovered so far would fetch about $38 million.

Odyssey says the Gairsoppa held up to 240 tons of silver, which could bring in as much as $190 million at today’s rates."

This was from a ship (Gairsoppa) which was sunk by the Nazis in WWII.

Nevertheless - how can a find like this NOT affect the price of silver?

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
