Market-rigging verdict against beef packer is encouraging for Blanchard case

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA is in the market-liberation business, not the
investment advice business. But when liberating a
market also presents an investment opportunity,
GATA may be obliged to point it out. So appended
is an excerpt from GATA Chairman Bill Murphy's
"Midas" commentary tonight at LeMetropoleCafe.com,
reporting a special offer made to GATA supporters
by a coin and bullion dealer that long has supported
GATA, Swiss America Trading Corp. of Phoenix,
Arizona.

Taking possession of real metal helps rips the mask
off the market manipulators. And as you'll see from
the one-year gold and silver price charts at Kitco
here ...

http://www.kitco.com/charts/popup/au0365nyb.html

http://www.kitco.com/charts/popup/ag0365nyb.html

... it is hard to go wrong holding the real thing.

The special offer from Swiss America will enable people
to hold a substantial amount of silver in relatively
convenient increments with very small markups without
having to deal with the commodities exchanges. So take
a look at it below, and keep in mind as well all the
coin and bullion dealers on GATA's recommended list,
which is appended to every GATA dispatch.

Everybody can do at least a small service for market
liberation just by saving regularly in real gold and
silver.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.

From "Midas" commentary for
Tuesday, February 17, 2004,
at LeMetropoleCafe.com

By Bill Murphy

For years Swiss America Trading Corp. in Phoenix, Arizona,
has been an ardent support of the Gold Anti-Trust Action
Committee. My brother Tim and his partner, Dr. Fred
Goldstein, have introduced dozens of members of
LeMetropoleCafe and GATA to gold numismatic coins
and the ratio trading strategy. Tim and Fred now have a
special offer for Caf members and GATA supporters who
want to acquire physical silver bars.

With the help of Swiss America's bullion desk, Caf
members and GATA supporters now will be able to acquire
100-ounce hallmark JM or EH .999 bars at a fraction over
wholesale cost. This will enable people to acquire less than
a thousand ounces or as many ounces as they want in
multiples of 100.

This gives us the ability to get prompt physical possession
without having to deal with the COMEX or warehouse receipts.

Shipping will incur an extra cost.

Tim Murphy and Fred Goldstein can be reached at
1-800-289-2646. Tim's extension is 1019 and Fred's is 1033.
They can also be reached by email at
figoldstein@swissamerica.com.

This special offer will help us keep the pressure on the
silver shorts.
