Doug: why price of silver going so high? - Because the value of our $ is going down in the economic sector. Last year approx. 4 Euros or US$4 bought an ounce of silver, but this year its 4 Euro / $6 for the ounce of silver. Copper has been affected also.
Doug might produce an article on this topic, which would be very important to coin collectors.
There was also discussion about the price of gold and the use of the gold standard/silver standard.
Larry: when we last heard from John T., there were 14 tables sold.
Larry: at next meeting, set up volunteer schedule for manning the club table at the door. Well do $5 certificates, as previously.

slips for door prize.
