Friday metal porn, Barcelona edition

DrBusterDrBuster Posts: 3,848 ✭✭✭✭

Got to Barcelona and all of 2 blocks from our hotel was a coin shop. Had to pick up a piece of something.

Walking around and stumbled on a couple more coin / bullion shops totally random. Saw some 10oz Aussie kooks in a window, asking price 305€ ! Totally should have brought some stuff to trade.

    Did see a trade dollar in the window of one place, asking 20€, figured it was fake. If we happen to pass back by it I might pick it up.

    Another place was asking 30-50€ for modern libertads that we’re fairly beat up.

    Totally surprised to actually see quite a few places selling coin/bullion as in Madrid we never ran into any place with coins or metal. Peddlers by the Barcelona cathedral and stores there in the gothic quarter had some coins. Neat to see.

    Nothing new to speak of. Old pictures will have to do.

    Silver at spot and some more gold for my growing stack of yellow metal.

    Some nice stuff guys.... I wish I had found some coin shops when I lived in Portugal... Lived there a couple of years... Lots of work....did not do much hobby wise over there. Probably some missed opportunities. Cheers, RickO

    I was in Spain 30 years ago. Great times. Nice pick ups. Nice silver photos!

    I have some more work to do in perfecting my gold scrap refining. Mostly in the washing process. The "emerald" bar is 1.1ozt agw, its only 98.5% pure with silver as the contaminant. The other bar is 1.6ozt agw, 97.5% pure, its contaminant is copper. About 30 carats of fun shiny white stuff, most is .2 to .4 ct.

    Awesome picture! I love that Emerald.

    @Mesh....Wow... great haul of silver.... Hope you hit 500 oz....
    @Jinx86 .... Nice gold... I really like that emerald...my birthstone. Cheers, RickO
