My Gairsoppa bars arrived today. Super nice design and quality. I really like one bar in particular as it is A05000, Nice number! It is amazing holding these in your hands and knowing the Silver was mined in India, lost to the sea all these years, then recovered by Odyssey. Then shipped to my home and here i sit with it. What a long strange trip its been! This is what salvage is about, getting history into peoples hands! Along, with shows and articles written about the SS Gairsoppa! Nice to see the Odyssey Cert also provided! Higly reccomend picking these up as a Silver play as well as a commerative piece or WWII Maritime History!
When they Salvage the HMS Victory I will also purchase any authentic items offered for sale, not only because I want to and I collect this Shipwreck material, but I love #$%$ off all those who want Historic Shipwrecks to site and rot on the bottom of the very destructive seafloor! If they find 1000 Gold coins, they can always keep the best examples or each type for museum display of "cargo carried aboard", but there is no problem selling this material as it is not British Naval history being sold, its CARGO! Those who don't want the Gold coins to be sold, would not mind if the "cargo" aboard HMS victory was Coal, as you can buy all the Coal from the very Historic Titanic you want. Its about money and they don't want salvors to profit from all there years of research and investment! They also did not find Victory, and thus if we can't salvage it then no one should, even if the Cannons are looted away and the fishing Trawlers distroy all the History of how and why she sank, well thats ok, just no one but ourselfs should profit! Ivory Tower Bafoons!! Anyway, pick up a bunch of these !0 OZ Gairsoppa bars,again they are super nice and sold by a large trustworthy company! Also stay long OMEX, as "bugsy " said in the movie Bugsy "NEVER SELL YOUR SHARES IN THE FLAMINGO!"
I suppose they can only produce 10,000 of them under this numbering system (A00000-A99999), then comes the "B" lot. LOL
10,000 bars is only 3.4 tons, or about 3 percent of the total recovery.
While doing some web surfing, I stumbled upon Modern Coin Mart's Facebook page. Seems that the day I bought my bar for $239, they were having a special one day sale. Now, I'm really bummed I didn't buy more of them.
Your just a lost soul. You must be bitter about your Worldcom investment. Omex has been stated as a buy from several investment firms. Many have increased their holdings. Don't believe for a second that JP Morgan Chase will involve their company with a bad venture. They were there for every historical investment in history. Example: oil, railroad, etc..... This is just another gold mine they decided to get on board of.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
It's great to look at it and think about the journey that silver has been on. How many did you get, sky? Lucky stiff getting that A05000! Mine is A01533. Makes me wonder if they are being sold in sequence. Wishing now I had ordered more. May still do that. I would like to have at least one more so I could mount and frame them (one for each side) under a protective sealed glass. I keep mine right here by the 'puter. I must heft it a dozen times a day. The bar is certainly GEM quality!
Hi Quick, picked up many at the $239 special price. However, wanted to share with you that they are being sent out in sequence, for example I received A04998 then A05000 etc. so someone must have broke my sequence with their order, but then the the sequence picked up again. Hope this helps. Regards to you and your wife!
I would also still like to get one tube of those coins along with another bar. I would then mount the two bars in an upside down "T" configuration with the 15 coins around the bars and displayed alternating one side to the other. Only problem is there is a minimum order of 7 tubes at $241 and change each. My offer still holds for 6 people to join with me.
