We’ve been huge fans of silver for years now, so it goes without saying that we were very intrigued by #silversqueeze trending on Twitter over the weekend.
Today during my lunch break I went down to my local coin shop to see what all the fuss was about. The parking lot was full, but there were only a few people in line outside the building. I called the phone number listed on the sign and eventually got to a live voice. She took my name and phone number, and I received a text a few seconds later. I was #37 in line and my estimated wait time was 4.5 hours!
OK, things were getting a bit more real. I went to McDonalds for some lunch, and then went home and jumped on Apmex.com. Silver Eagles were selling for $41 each – a $12 premium over spot!
Ultimately I decided to skip the line at the local shop and buy a few online for an outrageous premium.
If you are wondering if the #silversqueeze is real, it is.
