One of the few people I have met with first hand experience of such a situation told me that liquor and cigarettes beat gold any day.

I concur... been adding a jug every time I visit the Military commissaries, though I don't touch the stuff. Been doing that for a few years, could stock a big bar, or throw one helluva party with it all!

As far as tobacco as a trade item, we started stashing a few cans of "Top", "Bugle" and a few other brands before the big price jump. It too may prove to be a wise investment when the SHTF. Many smokers would kill to get a smoke when nothing is available... We be ready for that as well... LOL!

Wow, it's like you read my mind. Also cigarette papers and a roller.
