Jim,

I did a little checking about  the memorandum you put up today…"

MEMORANDUM TO ALL AMERICAN EAGLE AND AMERICAN BUFFALO BULLION COIN AUTHORIZED PURCHASERS
SUBJECT: 2008 and 2009-Dated Bullion Coin Products
November 24, 2008

"With the exception of the American Eagle Gold One-Ounce and American Eagle Silver One-Ounce Bullion Coins, all 2008-dated bullion coins have been depleted. Weekly allocations will continue for these two products…."

A very good friend of mine at one of the premier coin and bullion shops in the country says he has not gotten Gold Eagles for at least 2 months.  As far as Silver Eagles,  he says he is getting maybe 500 every two weeks.  My friend says that  compared to the past the availability of Silver Eagles That amount is just a "trickle".  

Your friend,
Greg Hunter
