      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

Has anyone ever seen a LYMAN silver bar before?

 

I just puchased a old silver bar. It has the letters LYMAN across the top and I was told it was 10oz of pure silver. Just wondering if anyone has ever seen one of these before?

You could always take it to a jewelry dealer and they could do a test on it for you if you are suspicious.

I've had a couple of those in the past. The ones I had did not have the purity marked anywhere on them which caused hardship when I decided to eliminate them from my household. Most places wouldnt touch them simply because they were not marked .999 pure silver. Needless to say, I personally would never buy them again in view of what I had gone through.

A very nice chunk of silver there. I think the $575 price on the SMS LYMAN was placed when silver was high. Right now is a great oppertunity to get you some silver bars. Current silver value $27 an ounce I believe is the lowest in years.

I would trade all my coins for SILVER BARS if someone offered the value in trade. HaHa----

 

Nice Addition to your collection dostro

Always good to hedge your bets with silver and gold. If you have patience you will never be disappointed unless you bought at $49 an ounce this summer! :banana:

Think about it-- we all just paid $60++ an oz for raw silver eagles.
