that message from JBL is what started my interest in hoarding silver. saved every silver coin that on i got my hands on. sold out during the hunt brothers deal. unfortunatly, i didn't get back in until 2010. oh well.
Sounds like you were very wise to start saving your silver coins when LBJ came out with his message !!!! Looks like you did well when the Hunt Brothers came around !!!! Even though you are a bit late this time you may still do well as silver has been supressed for a long period of time and monetary inflation is still lurking !!!!!!!
