Where's a good place to buy? A flea market, ebay, online stores? I bought an ounce from a local dealer, but it was $5 over spot. Is that good? I'm going to buy another $350 worth at the end of summer, don't don't wanna pay more than I should.

5 dollars over spot is a pretty big premium, I would stay away from that. Even if it's an ASE, I don't think it's worth it. If you're just interested in accumulating the silver (as it seems like you are) then generics and junk silver are your best bet. You can occasionally get junk silver below spot. Even at face if you know the right people (the father of a friend of mine owned a bunch of vending machines in the mall and let me search the coins for a few years, got around $10 face from that).

Find out if there are any coin shows in your area, because people sell precious metals there and it's always easier to get good deals.

I got mine from a coin dealer in my town. Only about a $1 or two above the value for each coin.

I'm really only interested in coins, rounds, and bars of 99.9.
They are easy to sell in the future. I got AEs. I'm in it for the long run, so if silver is over $100 in thirty years, 5 dollars more will still be worth it. Just wishing for somewhere cheaper.

Provident Metals is the absolute best, I've bought over a hundred ounces of silver from them and have had only good experiences.
If you pay by check you can get 10 oz bars for less than a dollar over spot.
They also have about anything else you could want...junk, rounds, bars, coins etc.

Why open up mineral/metal mines in Africa? Heck we as the members of DDO should open up an mining corporation! Members of DDO, give me your credit card and banking information so that we may all profit!
