Is it better to sell bullion items on buy sell and trade or precious metals?

JWPJWP Posts: 16,605 ✭✭✭✭✭

I have two previous listings where I showed my collection of copper zirconium iron titanium magnesium and silver bullion bullets. Both











listings were well received and it seems like there was a lot of interest in this type of bullion. My dilemma is, do I list it on buy sell and trade or precious metals. I'm kind of leaning TOWARDS BST, and would kind of like to hear opinions of others on which way to go. Below are a few pictures that I had previously listed to show what I'm actually looking at selling. Also I bought these about three to four years ago online and at eBay, and the current day prices are just so inflated it is unreal. I thought when I bought these items I was busting the bank. But when I tried to look to see what people were asking for them on Ebay I realized that they currently are trying to bust the buyers Bank. I'm not sure and probably will not list any of my silver bullion bullets, and if I do it'll be a little later. Let me know your thoughts after looking at the pictures.

    As far as I know, the Precious Metals forum is a discussion forum. If correct that would mean you really only have one choice and would list these on the BST.

    @TomB Like I said in my listing, I'm leaning towards the BST forum. It seems that we both agree. Thanks for your reasoning. Jon

    The PM forum features a monthly PM BST thread for bullion related items.

    @steeter it all depends on what you want to collect. Gun enthusiasts like to collect items like this oh, just like coin collectors like collecting things associated with coins. If you're not into guns you may not be interested in this.

    @ricko I've given the copper in the silver away to friends and family members for for gifts and just to say thanks before. Once I started buying these I just got hooked on how beautiful they were especially the ones that were made by NWTM, but they've been closed and I've gone into bankruptcy. 50 caliber BMR I really need. I picked those up in Copper, titanium, iron, zirconium, and magnesium. 12 gauge shotgun shells are really really neat. I know I retired Major General in the National Guard that took the volume bullets in actually made a display on his desk, kind of intimidating but it sure looked neat. The 20 mm autocannon shells and titanium are really amazing, but I don't think I'll ever sell those. I still haven't decided on trying to sell my silver shells I don't have as many of those but they are definitely on the pricey side, about twice spot.

    What you are selling are not precious metals and they are not US coins so neither forum is appropriate. Suggest eBay or a similar venue.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    I have to admit, I've just never been able to understand the popularity of base metals formed into non functioning bullets.

    I have a couple of .45 silver bullets....They make good gifts, especially for active or former police. I keep one for myself, since that is my EDC caliber. Cheers, RickO

    @JWP... I have thought about adding silver bullets for each of the other calibers I favor - such as .45-70, .308, .44 Magnum.... Might visit Scottsdale Silver when I am out there for a visit and see what they have. Cheers, RickO

    bullets are cool! when i was a kid I lived near a cornfield that had old concrete bunkers scattered around and we used to find all sorts of large I mean LARGE rounds and literally throw them at each other . 20 , 37, 40, 57, 75mm projectiles mostly AP rounds although the 20 and 40 mm may have been HE .

    We called it arko which later I found out was short for atlantic research corporation . they were test firing ww2 era ammo into huge berms which later were flattened out and the trees were cut down and it was made into fields to grow cow corn.

    There are still a few bunkers out there. There are also a grove of ancient cedar trees filled with spent 20mm rounds overs or unders i suppose they come to the surface and fall out of the bark over the years.

    There was a tank and armored fighting vehicle junkyard nearby which was bulldozed and over 55 mobile home park was built there some 25 years ago.

    For the longest time there were 2 tank turrets in the woods completely pockmarked with shell divots they may still be out there :D

    Its a miracle none of us got an arm blown off
