Pretty sweet, and a good pick up for all that raw crap you buy instead of a Pan Pac.

I thot these things were a stupid fake gimmick when they first came out. Then I had a chance to see it operate and I thot "no way. I can't believe it actually works". But I've seen them in action several times now, and they're the real deal.

You can't just put down a coin and have it say it's within the range of 90%. You have to indicate what you think you're testing to give the unit a range of where the sample should fall. For example, for silver you can test 99.9%, 92.5%, 90% (US pre 1900, US pre 1945, US 1960), 96% Britannia, 80% Canadian.

But it's just a manner of scrolling through the options before you test. Start to finish it takes maybe 5 or 10 seconds.

I've tested 999 though 83% silver so far, maybe 30 samples, and everything works like it should.

I paid $649 for the whole shebang, shipped.

I am in the middle of apartment turn-over, so I don't have much time to explore. But damn, I like it so far.

If it keeps you from buying a fake Kilo silver bar it paid for itself.

If it allows me to sell stuff easier, faster, and at a better price, it'll pay for itself. I think the implied suspicion about that 12 ounce silver "eagle" over at CU is a good example. I had zero doubt it was .999 solid silver. But we get used to conventions and I think it's smart to approach things not blisteringly clearly marked .999, .925, 14k, etc. carefully.

This isn't a cure-all. But I've got a digital scale, digital calipers, my 40 years of experience, and now I've got this, too.

It's sexy :twisted:

Damn! That's nice. Could have saved me a few bucks over the years. Still, I'll wait a year or two till the Chinks have a knockoff that works as well for 39.95

Careful, the chicomms may program their version that'll validate all their counterfeits.

It's poor form to spoof a thread outside of the General Discussion forum.

Word on the street is that if you fiddle with the settings and leave it on all night it'll put a wicked NT look on it.

Oh you can do it. But it's frowned upon by those in polite society. Low hanging fruit and all that.
