I’ve seen a commercial a few times lately that advertises a civil war commemorative silver coin for $5. No shipping and handling. It said it was legal tender. Later in the commercial, in fine print, it says “Liberian Dollars”. So, I say “AH HA!” to myself, and head online to look for the exchange rate.
From http://www.OANDA.COM :
How can this be? Anyone got the Dope on this? I searched all over for the coin, but could only find one, broken link. Now, I know these guys aren’t selling these things for an over 200% loss. What’s going on here?
