    I recently bought a few silver coins off a gentile-men who didn’t have the invoices from the Canadian mint. I know this should have been a red flag and to tell you the truth, I was going to call off the meeting. Then the seller sends me his Mint reps contact number. This all happened on a Sunday, in which the mint was closed and I could not get in contact with the rep. I decided to take the chance and go ahead and buy the coins with reservations that at least my phone call to the mints rep Monday morning would clarify if my purchases were ligament or not. To my surprise the rep wouldn’t give me any information, even when I asked how can I tell if the coins are real, he said I can’t help you. I thought this was weird. I understand client confidentiality, but what does a few pointers hurt. How do you confirm your purchases.
