|eBay||There is always silver available to buy on eBay, but you have to be a bit cautious (e.g. not buying from someone with little feedback, being aware of the protection limits that eBay and PayPal offer). Sometimes, prices will be higher than they should; other times, you can purchase silver below spot.|

2. We are skeptical of the data they provide. Specifically, they offer historical data ('1833-1999 Yearly Averages') that appears to be inaccurate. They show a London Fix Average price of $21.793 for silver for 1979, and $16.393 for 1980. However, using data directly from the LBMA, we determine it to be $11.0679 in 1979, and $20.9837 for 1980. So for one year, their price is almost TWICE what it really was, and the other 20% LOWER than it really was. They were contacted about this discrepancy, but never replied to offer an explanation. We are unaware where they are getting their inaccurate date from, nor why they do not fix it. But given all the concerns of manipulation and such, it is disconcerning when companies provide inaccurate information. It may just be an honest mistake.
