    Smith and Wesson Model 442, .38 Special, carried a lot, shot a little - less than 100 rounds and no +P. Includes Serpa holster and leather holster. Leather holster has break in the back, but still works (with some wobble). Includes box and manual.

    $420 FTF, shipped on your nickel.

    Or 14 oz. silver coinage (not bullion). :laugh:

    Usual tradebait: +/- cash to make ends meet: Ruger SA revolvers (.44 or .357 only, and nothing with a Dragoon trigger guard), S&W Airlite or Ruger SP101 .22 LR or .22 Mag., Ruger Bearcat or Super Bearcat. Compact .45ACP. Kahr PM9. Full size CZ in 9mm might be interesting, too. Or quality knives.

    Walking Liberty dollars have an ounce each, so it would be 14. You'd have to pay the transfer fee and sales tax in whatever form your FFL desires. :D

    I found a very nice chart that does just that. It calculates silver at $10 an ounce, so multiple all values by 3:

    Coin Silver Content Silver Weight Face Value Silver Value
    1942-1945 War Nickels 35% 0.05626 oz. $0.05 $0.56
    1916-1945 Mercury Dimes 90% 0.07234 oz. 0.10 0.72
    1946-1964 Roosevelt Dimes 90% 0.07234 oz. 0.10 0.72
    1932-1964 Washington Quarters 90% 0.18084 oz. 0.25 1.81
    1916-1947 Walking Liberty Half 90% 0.36169 oz. 0.50 3.62
    1948-1963 Franklin Half 90% 0.36169 oz. 0.50 3.62
    1964 Kennedy Half 90% 0.36169 oz. 0.50 3.62
    1965-1970 Kennedy Half 40% 0.1479 oz. 0.50 1.48
    1878-1921 Morgan Dollar 90% 0.77344 oz. 1.00 7.73
    1921-1935 Peace Dollar 90% 0.77344 oz. 1.00 7.73

    This is the second time I've noted an ad of yours accepting silver coin for purchase. I can certainly appreciate a man wanting to be paid in real money, but if I may ask, what is your aversion to bullion? I assume you mean trade silver rounds and bars like JM, Englehardt, Sunshine, etc? And why the laughing smiley? I'm just kind of curious because I don't understand the joke. Would you mind enlightening me?

    What joke? The historical purpose of coinage was to make precious metals readily identifiable to the non-expert. Rounds and bars, much as I like them, are not as readily identifiable to third parties as, say, a Morgan dollar or a pre-64 Roosevelt dime. What worked for history, works for me. :bluelaugh:

    And I don't have gold coinage on the list because it's overpriced compared to silver at the moment. :paranoid:
