Re: A little of this, some of that! For a week or more I had a thought to visit the gold buyer store a few blocks from my home. Usually, I sell my gold scrap to a New York company I have dealt with for some years, and found them very reliable in their pricing. I had 7.7 dwt 14k scrap. The New York price today was $36.29 per dwt. And, they send Fed Express to pick up your scrap and receipt it. Going into this neighborhood store , telling the man what I had, his price was $20.00 per dwt. Needless to say, after thanking him for his time, I walked out. It brings to mind every so often you will see a full page newspaper advertisement buying gold, diamonds, pearls, etc. It makes me wonder...what unknowing people sell their valuables to these set ups and how much they get and possibly are ripped off in the transaction. In looking at what I was just offered, a little more than half the gold value, it brings great doubt to mind about getting fair value for your valuables. Of course, I know these buyers have upkeep...but the price offered is far too out of line. Attending Chapter 1 meeting this coming Sunday, I am sure the gold will be sold, even throwing in an "O" size pretty Longine that could be worn on a chain. The hairspring needs adjusting.
