      To the people that calculate the percentage gain needed to break even on their metal purchase...

      First, you can figure that out before you buy, so to give the product a mediocre review based on that fact means you shouldn't have bought it in the first place. It has no relevance in an after purchase product review. Capitalism- go find a cheaper price, mine it yourself, or start your own precious metal business if these prices seem high.

      Secondly, and most importantly, you need to remember that the cost plus shipping literally includes the total cost of: mining, transporting, minting, storage, and final delivery. It's amazing how many people have unrealistic expectations and want everything for free. Think about it this way...if world paper currencies collapsed and metals became the default currency like many of the people on here are hedging against, you'd be hardpressed to be sitting in Anytown, USA with the ability to pay 3 bucks in overhead for 100 dollars of silver to be mined, processed, verified, minted, and delievered to your doorstep. Most likely, in this scenario, people would be murdering each other for 100 dollars of silver. Comparing to today's world...$3 vs. your life.

      Keep everything in perspective people. There is quite a bit of work that goes into getting those metals to you. They aren't running a charity. I, for one, am very thankful to APMEX in that I can purchase metals in small quantities, backed by great customer support, on a very user friendly website, and with LOW prices over spot.

      This was my first purchase from AMPEX. I paid by bank wire ($20 at my bank) so delivery was processed in 1 day and I received the bar very quickly. It does require a signature, which is a good thing, but make sure you can be there to sign for it. However, when I opened the package, I was surprised to see its "non mint", scuffed and dinged condition. Since APMEX buys these also, I assume I received someone elses sale item. Being that this is a bar, albeit a shiny bar, its real value is in the metal and not so much its condition. Coins are discounted if scuffed or scratched, so maybe APMEX should start doing that to avoid disappointed customers. I was considering buying a second bar if silver prices continue to drop, but now I'm not so sure I will.

      On another note, be aware that the cost of this bar over the spot silver price appears to be $99, shipping is $14, plus I paid by wire ($20). This immediately puts me "in the hole" by 7%. If I wanted to sell this bar, and I bought at $19.00/oz and return shipping cost $20, I would need silver to be $20.53/oz just to break even. This is a bit of overhead, but metals are not paper currency.

                  Comments about 100 oz Silver Bar - APMEX (Struck):

                  The cost over spot makes it difficult to realize a gain. $79 over spot comes to $790 over spot for all ten bars. To get even you need the price of silver to move up between 60 cents to 70 cents if you want to sell back to Apmex. You need even a greater move if you want to sell to your local guy at the actual spot price. In addition, the amount of time it took to receive the order was very long. From the time the cash was removed from my account, the order did not arrive for 9 days.

                          I bought this bar as an investment and very glad I did. It is a beautiful bar that comes with a little box which works. As others have said mine also has some light scratches on both sides but not too bad. And it's a big bar of silver so I still love it.

                                  Everything is great. I wish that the product was wrapped and sealed in plastic like my other purchases instead of put in a fitted box. It seems to have scuffed the surface of each side of the piece. I do not feel that it would hurt the value because they are minimal. Overall, very pleased with my purchase.

                                      As a first time buyer, I am somewhat pleased with the purchase. Particularly happy about the low cost over spot price. Very good design (for stacking and storing) with APMEX and the eagle logos.

                                      My only concern is that mine did not come in "mint" condition by any stretch of imagination. It came with scratches all over -- perhaps in similar condition as a US quarter that has been in circulation for 2-3 months.

                                      Note: I have purchased four 5 oz coins from APMEX before which came in much much better "mint" condition.

                                      Service and delivery comments:

                                      The delivery was prompt and packed very well. Arrived a day earlier than promised by USPS!

                                      As other have stated, I paid by personal check (probably the lowest cost option) but that delayed the delivery by about 5 days.

                                      After 7 days after my check was received by APMEX (according to their web-site information) I called to inquire the status of the order. I mentioned to the representative that the check had already cleared 4 days ago from my bank. He said that it did not matter as there was still 10 days holding period, and he couldn't tell when the product will be shipped.
