I would be very careful about what I bartered for PM's (in any form) during such an event. I'd trade whatever I could, before touching my stack.
I'd use junk 90% silver (Franklins, Walkers, Merc dimes)for barter, and hold as much as I could of the bullion and Morgan stack for "buying in" to whatever the new, evolving economy stabilized around. If it took too long to stabilize I'd then tap the bullion, and finally the Morgans.
