6:40 am (Hawaii) E-mail from Scottsale Silver this morning:
We've got product in stock but with the recent demand we are back to a 1-2 week shipping window on most items. Major incoming purchases globally have us projecting that this may expand out further. We are doing our best to provide our customers with quick delivery of the FINEST bullion available.
What does this mean? Maybe demand is getting stronger. Scottsdale makes some of the most beautiful silver products, including the 5-oz Prey bar. That was cool when they offered it to members before issuing it for the general public. No discount, just early availability. Nothing they sell is at a discount. Kind of an art boutique more than a big discounter. I lean toward physical metal as cheap as possible, particularly Eagles, but I still enjoy round and bars by SS.
