Attended a very large multi-family yard sale today and ....
Our local police department put on a huge multi-family yard sale today. We attended and walked around looking at all the clothes, rip-off Nike sneakers, kitchen ware, books and toys and came upon one dealer with a large (LARGE) number of "silver" rounds, gold one ounce bars and Franklin Mint medals.
The rounds were marked .999 silver or .999 platinum, one ounce, with various figures or Mercury Dime obverse styled obverses. They were all in plastic cointains (except the bars) and when I picked some of them up they were noticeably light in weight. The gold bar was a funny color. The Franklin Mint medals were bronze I believe. He wanted $25 each for the Franklin Mint medals in their original packaging and I have no idea what those were worth. He quoted $30 each on the silver rounds, $35 on the platinum one and $50 on the gold bar. When asked if they were real silver he wouldn't look me in the eye.
I am not sure where all the fakes came from but if you weren't weight aware you might be taken in with the silver ones. The plat and gold were ludicrous. All this being sold on the grounds of the Police Station.
I didn't bring my good magnet but my small one I carry was attracted to all the rounds and bars.
Got to watch what is going on there.
The next booth had a lot of Pokemon cards and baseball cards that were all suspect.
The fake Nike's didn't fit.
