I was in the precious metals industry for about 13 years. Your problem is pretty common, most of the big companies do not want to work with people that have small quantities it is not worth it to them. You will probably have to pay to move the metal, even the large industrial companies I dealt with had to pay for transaction fees. It looks like silver closed at $22.66 per troy ounce on Friday. I am not sure what you bought at, but you will probably want the price to go higher so that you can afford the cost of the transaction without taking a loss. A pawn shop or cash for gold type of place is the easiest place to sell but they are going to take the most money. I would suggest googling silver refiners and to start having a conversation with them on the there process for transferring metals. The best way to purchase gold or silver is to buy through a broker who then holds the metal, you only own it on paper, and setting up automatic sell points so that when the metal hits that price it sells and you bank the profit.
