As our paper currencies collectively plummet toward zero, the actual difference in value between the "highest prices in history" and "the lowest prices in history" steadily shrinks to zero as well. Whether we have gold (currently) priced at $1,700/oz and silver priced at $32/oz, or whether we add one (or two) zeros to those numbers is now practically nothing more than the arbitrary whim of bankster manipulation...with one important exception: inventories . Today, the "price" of gold or silver means nothing more than how favorably we can exchange our soon-to-be-worthless banker paper for the world's only honest money. Tomorrow, when inventories go to zero, this means the zeros that have been artificially/fraudulently withheld from gold and silver must be added.
