    man were those the days or what?................( yes I missed yesterday sue me;))

    With the just a signature, there goes a private citizens right to hold gold coins or certificates above the estimated window price of $100 in value. (Roosevelt- exec. order 6102)

    I posted this just as a winsome what if, as in what if an exec. order this all encompassing and invasive, was executed in this era?

    I don't own physical gold. However, I have owned ETFs with gold and silver domiciled outside of the United States.

    I've thought about buying bars of gold and sticking them in a safety deposit box in Canada. I chose not to for a number of reasons. And I think that the odds of gold being expropriated is very small. But I have thought about it.
