I'm just wondering if anyone has purchased bullion through craigslist. Based on a couple of the ads I've seen, it seems like I might be able to get a better price on silver eagles than I can at the local coin store. So, is craigslist a good idea, bad idea???

Yes Ok to do so but always take a strong magnet a jewelers loupe and an acid test kit with a scale. Dont just think everyone is truthful a lot of phoney bars and coins are out there. Its not always the sellers faault some poeple dont know they have been had. Some one tried to sell me a steel chain they said they bought it at a jewelry store but it was a poor fake. My magnet stuck to it like a dog chain. You know what i mean just do your due diligence and you will be ok.

I wouldn't buy anything but ASEs or Maple Leafs from Craig's List. No one is faking them at a level someone couldn't spot right away. As mentioned above, go in person with cash and a firearm if you have the proper training and licensing. I know I wouldn't show up to $1,000+ cash deal with someone I just met over the net without my sidearm.

And Take A Hand Granaid & Toss That In Their Car As A Warning Shot.

Just To Be On The Safe Side

Well, I don't have a concealed permit, but I would definitely meet in a public place.

LMSG, please, whatever you do, get rid of that thing. You've put up such nice avatars, too.

You don't want coal in your stocking again, do you?

Or nothing but a vaporizer under your tree.

Craigslist is like any other storefront. Personally, I hooked up well with it.

We met at a flea market between us the first time. Then, he saw my credentials and I just go see him. You can stay with the flea-market arrangement, too.
