The Scarcity of Silver Coins

It remains a fact that even though junk silver coins are in circulation, majority of the American population
have not seen or beheld any of these silver dimes at all. Junk silver dollars have always been rare since

The scarcity of 90% junk silver can be explained through the Gresham Law. It states that when two coins

As it happened in American history when the 1965 Coinage Act was passed, the junk coins were instantly

To counteract the hoarding of the 90% silver bullions, the Secretary of the US Treasury resorted to
making clad coins. The latter are coins made by sandwiching a copper core with two metals. Clad coins

Investing in Junk Silver Coins

Would you rather choose a 100-oz silver bar or a bag of circulated 90% silver?

Either of the two will garner the same premiums. But loose silver coins are much preferred by seasoned investors
because they can be readily disposed in allotments or in bags whenever the need arises. A junk silver coin has a
legal tender.

Survivalists, who are ever on the look-out for sudden economic collapse, think it is wiser to devote their finances
on silver bullions as well. In such catastrophes, the fiat currency (wherein money used as legal tender is not made
of precious metals) will be deemed worthless. Silver, as one of the known precious metals since time immemorial,
can then be used as money in exchange for goods and services.

Art Deco figurines are at the very heart of the leading
style movements in the 20th century. Art Deco, unlike
other art movements with a radical political and social
undertone, was purely meant for decorative purposes.
Art Deco is short for Exposition Internationale de Arts
Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925.
Art Deco figures were the epitomes of the flamboyant style
in the Roaring 20s - bright colors, exotic materials,
geometrical patterns, and stylized shapes. Popular Art Deco
figures were made from porcelain and bronze though others
were made in bakelite and glass.
Art Deco figurines mostly depicted fashionably dressed
women in streamlined shapes. Art Deco miniature figures

How to spot a real Art Deco porcelain figurine:
* Art Deco porcelain figures depict scantily clad dancers,
slim women in fashionable dresses, ladies in sports wear.
Lenci and Rosenthal settled for less conventional poses:
women sunbathing, applying liptsick, and dancing.
* porcelain Art Deco figurines may have vivid colors but
designers like Goldsheider often use light colors on detailed
* valuable ceramic Art Deco figures have the designer's
signature at the base.
* Art Deco ceramic figures are stark white or has a tinge
of ivory.
* There are also nude figures in stylized forms.

Art Deco bronze figures
Art Deco bronze figurines were often made from an
amalgam of bronze and ivory called chryselephantine that
echoed ancient Greek sculptures. Other Art Deco figures
were cast in bronze then gilded or silvered.
Bronze Art Deco figures were more geometrical than its
porcelain counterpart. The long limbs of women dancers
and animals were given much emphasis. Common themes
in bronze Art Deco figurines were sensual forms of naked
women, Amazonas, and athletes.
Leading Art Deco bronze figure designers were Max le
Verrier, Demetre Chiparus, Ferdinand Preiss, Gerda Iro
Gerdago, Paul Philippe, Joe Descomps, Josef Lorenzi, and
Pierre le Faguays, to name a few. 6/1/2011
