That's what I was worried about, the cost of melting it down. Oh well.
I just can't find anyone that will pay a decent price. I sold off a tiny bit at a Jewelry/pawn store but they didn't pay much. I called up a place I
used to sell scrap steel, copper, etc a few years back and they say they only pay 60% of the silver value.
This is why I'm confused about people buying silver, how do they sell the silver if they want to cash out? Do they sell it at a huge loss? I just
don't get why having less than 1% of non-silver in the sterling makes it worth almost half as much. If I could melt the stuff down myself I could
make a killing by paying people more for their Sterling than anyone else, and selling off silver bars heh.
Anyway thanks again, and if anyone knows a place from personal experience that pays close to real value for silver please let me know!
