Default My stack collection thread

Hey fellow stackers! Ive been stacking/collecting precious metals since July 2013. I was given several silver dollars by my grandpa weeks before he passed. He also gave me a silver eagle to keep for my son whom he never got to meet. Ive always know about silver but never got into buying at all. I did however get .45 cents back as change that ended up being a 1964 quarter and 2 1964 dimes. I always kept them safe as I knew they were silver. This all got me thinking about how cool it would be to accumulate cool/old coins for my son to have years from now...as I did looking through my grandpas. Any extra funds I have will be going towards PM to hold forever, to someday pass down to my son.
