You just saw proof that you can still get real silver for silver certificates.  The Government really should honor these novelty items.  But no.  You may only have Federal Reserve Notes.  Thanks!  

After consulting with expert buyers/sellers in my community, the consensus is that paper silver certificates don’t go for more than $2-$5, unless you get a particular year, which I don’t know anything about yet.

But why stockpile silver versus other goods to trade potentially?  Because paying for storage sucks, and I’m condensing my wealth to a smaller physical size.  And silver in undervalued at this time, in my mind.  So I can get more in trade later.

Yeah, but Walmart doesn’t take silver bullion!  Not yet.  And if you have silver coins you can simply take them to the coin shop in your hood to get cash to purchase Chinese garbage and GMOs.  

Well, that dollar with The Rock on it isn’t worth a dollar, so you ripped them off, and you’re a jerk.  Hmmm….I think it’s still redeemable.  And Dwayne Johnson may as well be on our money since it’s so funny.  Audit The Fed.

 Take a second to leave a comment on this blog post, if you’d be so kind.  What do you stockpile just in case, if anything?  Cheers.

I was gifted tree resin fit for a King today.  Pictured is a fat handful of Frankincense and Myrrh gum bled from a plant.  My buddy Gypsy Hugh got the aromatic harvest burning on a hot hookah charcoal.  Next, we place the purifying fragrance in my 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon.  The pleasant odor filled my bus with smoke, and the scent should linger for days.  It smells like incense, only more pure, and natural to me.  It was a kind gesture to hot box my vehicle like that, and very appropriate on Christmas Day.  Enjoy the pictures below.  I’d never seen these hardened resins in person, called tears.

Silver is still climbing! Take a look at this 60 day chart from Kitco. Do you have any precious metal? Preppers know investing in silver and gold is a good hedge against inflation. It’s something to think about. Talk to your local coin shop dealer about different investment options. We are not financial advisors, but selling your precious metals now may be extremely stupid. Real money will never be worth zero. All fiat currencies, aka paper money units of exchange, have eventually been devalued to nothing. Do your homework. Also, below is a interesting 650 year chart of the price of both gold and silver. Did you know silver was once more valuable than gold? That could happen again. Keep prepping.

Interest in silver has been on the decline, but lately it’s making an upward move in the markets. Let’s take a look at how real money has been doing recently.

Right now silver is $31.69 per ounce of .999 fine bullion. It jumped $1.35 today! That’s a big move for silver. It seems all prices are rising. Corn, soy, and gas are now more expensive. Blame it on what you want, floods, drought, refinery fires, but your wallet is getting lighter. Health care costs are going through the roof too. Maybe it’s because we have a private company, The Federal Reserve printing as much funny money as they can, and loaning it to us, and foreign counties, with interest.

The game is rigged, and the economy is fake, so what should we do? Well, in my opinion it’s again time to buy undervalued commodities. Silver is an excellent long-term investment. It will always have intrinsic value. I’m buying. There’s a lot of uncertainty in the markets, and that means as things get worse, people buy silver and gold to hedge against inflation. Inflation robs your purchasing power. It’s a hidden tax.

If you want to physically own precious metals, get to know a coin dealer, or buy from a trusted website. Survival Bros recommends buying generic silver rounds to avoid the high premiums of American Silver Eagles. You could also look for 90% silver, such as pre-1965 circulated coins at a discount. It’s up to you.

I love silver because it’s real money. The money our grandfathers toiled for. Now we have a dishonest currency, backed by nothing but blind faith. It’s a joke. Work forever for paper, or numbers on a computer screen. Ask yourself, what is money?

If silver isn’t your thing, maybe you want to stockpile food, guns, ammo, or even water. Silver is very liquidable, and other consumer goods can be sold easily too. I like stocking up on little knives, lighters, and things like organic tea. My hoard is well rounded.

Look at the silver charts, and see if you think it has an upward trend. It reached $50 an ounce not too long ago. If you picked up just one ounce of bullion a month, soon you’d be ball’n! You don’t have to listen to me, but I bet silver keeps climbing. Buy whatever you can low, and sell high. Hustling 101.
