Underground Scrap Gold & Silver Economy Expanding Like Wildfire

There is no such a thing as broken jewelery , jewelery is worth what metals it is made of , it does not matter if it is broken or not , if it is made of gold it is worth the gold it is made of .Do not let anybody fool you that your broken jewelery is worth less just because it is broken .  Before I found out about gold and silver, I had the false belief that selling gold is a good idea. Now it is clear to me that such a move is foolish. Gold and silver are awesome! I will never sell my gold and silver at these prices and certainly not against paper money ...I will eventually trade my gold and silver in the future for real estate or farm land or food or weapon it will all depend on the boom bust cycle and what's the hot commodity at that time ....

These guys they get paid for their work with profits on the "spread", i.e. the difference between their buy and sell prices. With that money the pay their living expenses. Whatever they can save, they use to buy gold and silver for themselves.The honest ones are no different from you and I. There are crooks in every occupation, but coin dealers and precious metals dealers are infinitely more honest than bankers who loan electronic money they don't have, and print money backed by nothing.
See a lot of that silver that used to get thrown out, now gets recycled. Heck there are people who will buy old computers and electrical equipment because the cost of their precious metals now make them worth salvaging.

The main reason for the spike of the price of gold, is it's use in microprocessors and other high expense electronic components. Though silver is a better electrical conductor than gold, it tarnishes too quickly to be used in long lived products
