    I think they are great. I would put them along with the ASE BU.

    Oh, I love the Maples. Are you a collector of the 70 grade maples in particular?

    I have ZERO faith in the RCM to produce any silver bullion without milk spots. at the 70 grade you are really gambling, if it spots your 70 grade is worth melt.

    I bought a 2015 silver 3/4 oz canadian timber wolf -it is a pcgs grade 69-I have silver eagles that are 69's and they are not near as bad as that Canadian coin-half of that coin is a milkspot-I later read that for some reason a lot of Canadian coins have issues with "milkspots" and have been hesitant to buy another Canadian coin which really sucks because I love the look of the maples. I might try a 70 grade maple and see how it turns out- or maybe just try some cheaper uncirculated ones first and see what they look like.

    Hey bluetech, if you havent heard, RCM has started a new process called Mintshield that helps with milkspots. Any Silver Maple Leaf dated 2018 or after should be a safe bet for you. I bought an incuse myself, looks great.

    Still a super cool coin that definitely holds its value.

    I purchased an MS70 First Strike incuse Maple Leaf yesterday in an auction for $43, which is less than the cost of the coin and grading. MS70 maples used to be very scarce and pricey, so perhaps the Mintshield they are using (which is on the incuse coins) is resulting in higher quality.
