In my opinion that is a beautifull nugget and would sell well over spot price!!
But it all depends on who's looking when it's for sale.
I feel somewhat ashamed and dirty as I sold the nugget already. I received an offer that was good in my opinion and took it.
Hey, whatever works is best for you! I woulda done the same if I needed the cash too
Been at it for 15 years now and just sold some nice nuggies for the first time. Pretty much my whole collection is going for my son's college, but the local mining club wanted some for there special events, so I sold some. Such is life! [/quote]
Didn't need the cash but did see it as an opportunity I could use to upgrade my arsenal of equipment and gear.
