Our inventory of precious metals includes the following gold, silver, junk silver, nickel & copper:

* 19 x 1 OZ American Silver Eagles
* 9 x 1/10 OZ American Gold Eagles
* 4 x 5 OZ Silver Bars
* 200 x 1932-1964 Washington Quarters
* 1 x 1946-1964 Roosevelt Dimes
* 20 x 1948-1963 Franklin Half Dollars
* 9,360 1946-2009 Nickels (Why nickels? http://wp.me/pItWb-7o)

We keep some of them in our BOB (bug out bags) and get home bags to barter with if for some reason We are out and about when SHTF.

Mind you, I don’t think that our fiat paper money will be worth that much less from arriving at work to leaving work on any given day. But it might be seen as a sweetener if all else fails.

I wish I lived in the around the 1964-65 so I could do then what I am doing now with nickels.

    Just wondering where you got your nickels from. Can you just walk into your bank or credit union and tell them you want to withdraw $500 in nickels? Or did you have to go around to different places?
    Thanks for the site and videos.
