I bought 100 oz of silver in the 1983 I think it was about $9/oz. I stored in a dresser and every once I while I'd show it to a friend. Somehow during a couple of moves the silver bar, grew wings and flew off.
The local talk radio stations has a National gold bug show. Everytime I hear his claim that "Gold has never been worth zero". I laugh because I've never had a stock go to zero (even when I had physical stock certificates) but my silver is now worth zero.
