Don't buy silver on E-bay. The prices are inflated as well as the shipping. Find a local jeweler or card shop who sells bullion and buy ounces of silver as your budget allows. You will generally pay a few percent over spot. Ive been buying for years and generally go with 1, 5 or 10 ounce bars. As previously mentioned, buy silver for the weight, not the collectors value.edit on 4-12-2010 by Cakewalk because: spelling

There are at least 2 dealers in North Carolina - Charlotte and Greensboro. Check their prices and best of all, if you like their prices, it's cash and carry. Forget the EBay routine!!!!!
Here on the ship Titanic (California), I regularly swap a stack of Federal Reserve Notes for Tubes of Silver Eagles, pay no tax, take my receipt and walk back out the door. I.D. was not required.
Let me know how it goes. Jumping ship and heading for Mooresville next summer. I'll be in need of a local dealer.

If the world currencies collapse, silver may very well be the mode of payment for the common people and gold for the big boys.
