    I'd like to see $800 out of this. These were mostly picked up on at a time from where ever I saw something interesting... which means I have more that I should into this. Make an offer...

    My wants list:
    lever guns in just about any caliber
    Single action revolvers
    sharps repros
    Rossi pump .22's (model 62)


    The weird looking silver coin is a sacred cow afghan silver drachm. The fugio is a fake.

    Everything else should be pretty self explanatory by the scans, if not please ask. Any questions/requests for more pictures please ask.

    I apologize about the jumbled together pictures... never was good at graphics.

    Open to offers, I'm just not interested in keeping it around anymore. Not a hobby I can really keep going with.

    Have you tried stopping by your local coin store and getting a value. Most will buy collections.

    I did, something about 50% of the value based off a 1995 book for the older coins wasn't doing it for me.

    Selling to a coin shop should be your last choice. Well maybe to a pawn shop should be your last choice. Both places will give you practicality nothing for your coins and then turn around and sell them for 3 times as much as what they gave you. Silver is going for probably 5 times the face value. (.25 = $1.25) Or more. Some of your coins will be worth alot more then that. You need to get a new coin book and look them individually . Its very important that you take into consideration the details of the coin to determine the grade. Proof and uncirculated coins will bring alot more money then worn out circulated coins.

    From what I saw $800 seems to be well over priced though. Maybe not, Good luck.

    I probably should have clarified, what'd I'd like is not what I'd expect.

    Just to help you out here, regarding one of the comments - Silver is not moving at a rate of 5 times the face value. It's a lot closer to 10 times face value, hence the going melt rate on a 90% silver quarter is about $2.50. This fluctuates with the price of silver, obviously, but it's $18.50 at the moment. I am pretty sure my dealer was buying at 11 times face value the last time silver broke $18. ANY coin store or bullion dealer should pay you at least that for your silver dimes, quarters, halves and dollars. Some of the older ones (like the Seated Liberty dime from 1887) will carry a premium over the so called "melt value" provided the date is visible.

    I don't know much about the rest of the stuff, but you have about $50 worth of silver there just with the 90% dimes, quarters, halves and the two dollars - that's at melt value only.

    I said "Silver is going for probably 5 times the face value. (.25 = $1.25) Or more."

    Thank you for your correction. 10 times? Nice!

    Yep, it's on the move. Anyone who bought a pile of silver back when it was $11 (not too long ago) is sitting pretty. That said, silver is so undervalued that even at $18+, it is still a really great buy.

    Needless to say, I hope that someone with the $$$ or trade goods scoops this stuff up.

    Pre-1964(including 64) US coinage contain .7234 oz of silver per $1 of face. This is generally reduced to .715oz/$1 for circulated coins to reflect the wear on the coins.

    So anyway, silver price(18.5ish today) * .715 = $13.22 melt value per $1 of face value.

    I spoke with the guy at a coin shop the other day, he claimed he found a refiner who would pay 98% of spot for silver. So any shop should be offering you at least 90% of spot for your "junk" silver.

    you have MAYBE and that's a big maybe $100 worth of coins. the $2 bill is worth a whole $2. the $1 silver certificate maybe $3. the wheat back pennies are worth about 1.5 cents each(no collector valued dates) besides the silver there is really nothing there that a collector would be interested in.
    not sure about the foriegn stuff.
    i have been a coin collector for well over 30 years. i only deal with american coins.

    most of my (for whatever it's worth) price reliance is
    wash large mil bust
    1822 and 1851 penny
    1885 nickel
    beat to heck connecticut copper coin
    spanish coin
    english coin


    in a non offensive manner, I'd offer up my numbers so someone could set me straight.
