Does tarnish, scratches or dents affect the value of my bullion?

Any reputable dealer will know these blemishes do not affect the value of bullion, as the value of bullion is based on the weight and purity of the metal. Tarnish is a natural reaction to oxygen and sulphur on the bullion itself. Blemishes such as milk spots, scratches, and dents often occur at the mint during production and packaging.
