Silver Left At Southwest Michigan Caches in Midwest Posted October 25, 2005 The value of silver goes up and down, but then the value is measured in legal tender which happens to be US Dollars in this country. Actually, the term "Legal Tender" meant you were bartering and trading in marijuana back when it was originally initiated, but since it's weight/worth has far surpassed that of gold and silver, it's no longer relevant either. Although I think that alterior motives are definately present, what's the difference? How many of you have frantically grabbed your stuff and ran when you saw a new listing with a rare geocoin in it? Also, having dealt with the woodland creatures and their teeth, plastic can be chewed through no matter what kind of plastic it is. If a squirell thinks there is something interesting or tasty on the other side of a kevlar flak jacket, it'll chew a hole through it to find out.
