Saturday Metal Porn? I picked up a few neat silver bars this afternoon.

The premiums were a little higher than I was expecting--$3 per ounce over spot.

A few 2nd and 3rd series Silvertowne bars from the mid-1970s. These go for about twice their melt value on eBay.

But that last bar is a little better than those other three. So I pried open the wallet and shelled out the whole $136.25 without bargaining. They only charged me 5 ounces even though it's technically 5.4 ounces. So I guess I did ok after all.
