    Im new at this so this is just a question. Isn't that expensive? For a 5 oz of silver with shipping I paid $116.00. So I'm thinking for 10 oz it would be $240.00 and under.. Am I missing something?

    All the best

    Bryan, thanks for posting.

    The SS Gairsoppa 10 oz Silver Bar is shipwreck silver that has great collector's value attached to it. Did you pay $23.20 per ounce for shipwreck silver? If not, then it is not really comparable. ;)

    P.S. Free domestic shipping is included in the price.

    It would be cool Vegas, but it seems to have collector value too. Im just trying to invest in silver. I hope it doesn't go way down as that would be my luck :(

    Nah, your ok. I honestly wouldn't sweat it buddy and just keep stacking. I don't let the market changes get to me cause I just try to concentrate on constantly moving forward with silver purchases. That's what I love about silver, it comes in so many different sizes that in all actually you could get a new piece everyday. It will all add up. Next thing you know your scratching your head looking at your stacks saying, oh my!!
    Stay cool buddy, have a great one.
    I posted a thread in classic coin of something silver I found today for $3 at a local antique store, please check it out if you wish. Vegas Jay

    Yes, but it was collector's value that you could pick up very close to the price you would pay for a generic 10 oz bar. The same bars are now selling at $283.72: http://www.ebay.com/itm/S-S-Gairsoppa-Shipwreck-Silver-10-Troy-Oz-999-Silver-Bar-w-COA-SKU30190-/141142976878?pt=US_Bullion_Bars_Rounds&hash=item20dcc6e96e

    If I may give you some advice... try to diversify at least a portion of your stack into collector's and/or numismatic silver as well. This will help to provide you with a double play, where you will be able to fall back on both the melt value and the numismatic value at the end of the day. Thus, it is a form of risk management and it provides a bit more fun than to just stack 'naked' bullion. However, needless to say, it remains entirely your choice. Do what makes you happy. :)
