Re:western nc prices 6 years 1 month ago #15150

Ooops! Sorry for the echo folks!:ohmy:

I was having trouble with my connection and could not get a confirmation the reply was submitted and obviously kept resending it.

Question: What year did the Federal Government do away with Silver Certificates and go strickly with using promisery notes as legal tender?

Once upon a time long ago and far away before the creation of a US Treasury and our Federal Reserve Board Wild Ginseng roots were worth their weight in silver and traded as such.

Maybe it's just me but I can't seem to convince my banker, the utility companies, the grocery store nor the county tax collector to accept Ginseng as payment for my debts.

But what if I could convince them to accept my Ginseng instead of currency based stricktly on my evaluation of what it's worth.

Better yet I'll convince them it's a great investment because it has been worth much more at times in the past and it should be worth much more in the future to them if they are willing to hold onto it long enough and we can all live happily ever after.

Looking forward to your responses on this blustery day with thanks.

An anoymous digger called in and said they could get 535 elsewhere on Friday.
I said that was a great price for that day.
Looks like 500-515 for good average collections today is NC market.
Still 53 more shopping days left before Christmas!

Seems prices are easying up and all buyers seem more interested in me bringing what I have by so they can make an offer. Hopefully a good sign?

Have most of the NC diggers sold? I'm still holding out.

I'm still holding out too, I've got close to 4 lbs so every 5 and 10 dollars a lb it goes up adds up pretty good, if I had a lb or less I would probably sale any time cause I don't think its gonna go up a ton, out of about the 10 friends I know that dig I would say about three quarters of them has sold. I normally sale mine around the week of thanksgiving to Donald Phillips unless it begins to go down before then, I might hold out a little longer than that if it looks like its gonna start going up pretty good.
