    The longer I live the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice is it possible for an empire to rise without His aid? Benjamin Franklin

    That's true, if you have an alternate number or bogus one that's an option. You have to have a pretty thick hide these days with all the promotions and sales pressure.

    I tried calling them up and since I had gotten the deal before, they said for established customers the eagle is not available at spot price with a cc delivered, surprise surprise. But is $2050 unless I wanted an engraver signed quarter ounce eagle, 2022 in an MS70 holder for $2000, then they would give me the loss leader.

    I tend to pass these specials up anyway.... Rarely are they a 'super' deal... Since I am happy with my stacks. Cheers, RickO

    No, to many calls wanting to sell more to you. Not for me and jmo

    You'd have to have a second phone or way to block them. Cheap burner phone from Walmart, etc.

    1 oz AGE still listed at about spot price but the "add to cart" and "buy now" buttons not activated.

    The decline from democracy to tyranny is both a natural and inevitable one.

    Not sure if the order would actually process, but I was able to add this item to my cart at approximately 1:30AM (ET) on 07.04.22.

    Yep, lets me add to cart and "checkout." Of course the "checkout" states thank you for your order, someone will contact you shortly for your payment details. I'm guessing the initial call will be sorry we are all out of the $1805 gold eagles but we have these other fancy encapsulated ones for $2700. Sounds like a scam to me, Glad I gave them Joe the Plumbers contact info. RGDS!

    The whole worlds off its rocker, buy Gold™.
