Couple Find a Surprising Old Treasure on Their Property (8 pics)

Posted in Random » Wow   8 Dec 2014   / 12332 views

An anonymous couple were walking their dog on their property when came across something interesting buried next to an old tree.


This lucky husband and wife uncovered around 1427 old coins dating from 1847 to 1894 that are in mint condition. The coins have been valued at a staggering $10 million in total and they plan to sell the coins on Amazon and will also be loaning some to the American Numismatic Association for the National Money Show.

He sold them?
Ouch, then he knows nothing of what is going on around him, he exchanged "real" 100 million in gold, against 10 million pieces of paper.

In a few years we find him hanging in his barn.

uhhh.... no. $10m is apparently their value as rare coins. their value as gold by weight would be closer to a tenth of that. since the rare coin market is typically a weak place to invest in and assuming you wanted to stay in gold, it would probably be better to convert these coins to $10m in bullion. of course that also assumes they can get full value out of them, which is usually difficult. which is part of why investing in rare coins is usually a bad idea.
I make my living buying and selling old coins, gigantes you're an idiot. Not a weak place to invest in, and those coins will sell fast if he knows what he's doing.

if anyone's an idiot, kachemnkillem, it would probably be the person(s) who failed to understand what i said.

i said "typically weak" and "usually a bad idea" because many (maybe even most) investors don't grasp how typical it is for the market to stagnate on coin value and how easy it is to get fleeced by dealers and specialists who deceive them on valuations.

many's the poor sap who invests thousands in rare coins (incl. gold and silver coins) and immediately loses a third or more on value because of crooked appraisals and not understanding how much harder it is for the avg consumer to sell rather than buy. indeed, i wouldn't be surprised if you're one of the very con artists who takes advantage of such folks.

Him, he does not invest, he found them, you are off topic, I mean the metal, not written years on parts.

You will understand all that in a few years when the fiduciary currency will collapse.

many of us know that fiduciary will collapse, but most of you seem to believe that precious metals or whatever are going to bail you or the system out. i mean, how long do you think gold is going to help you when products and resources that you're used to having access to quickly disappear? how is gold going to feed you, provide defenses against roving mobs & local warlords, prop up your way of life, etc when it no longer has real trading value?

no, i reckon the only way you'll survive what's coming is to be remote and off the grid, self-sustaining, have highly trained survival skills and be with a group of like-minded individuals. even then, life will be hard and will devolve from the standards you're used to... and even then you'll need to get lucky. not to mention you'll almost certainly die prematurely... so what's really the point?

btw i have no idea what language you actually speak, but i suggest you speak in that instead. your english is close to pure nonsense.
