90pct silver premiums vs .999 silver premiums

Tulving was out of Bags of 90% Junk Silver for almost a week.
Back in stock.
Dimes & Quarters @ $1.59 Over- Buy @ .40 Over
WL Half Dollars @ $1.99 Over- Buy @ .80 Over.
Looks like .999 is taking over the entry level.

Thoughts???

Coin shop in St. Louis

Two weekends ago, I went to a coin shop in St. Louis ( one of three I visit to buy stuff, based on who has the best prices at the time ) and bought $70 face of dimes. I paid the equivalent of 1.23 over spot. Both dimes and quarters were this price if you bought more then $20 face. At this coin shop, they would have bought dimes and quarters for $.26 under spot.

They would have sold half dollar coins for 1.67 over spot and bought the half dollars for the same as the dimes and quarters . . . $.26 under spot.

When I was there and finally decided to buy the dimes, they asked if I was buying a $500 face value bag of dimes, or a smaller amount. I told them I could only buy $70 face. The guy I was talking to then seemed to show a "sign of relief" on his face. He said they didn't have very many dimes to sell at the time but DID have enough to sell me the $70 face. But they had to give me a mixture of barbers, mercurys and roosevelts. AND they threw in 15 extra dimes for the price I paid for the $70 face. I think the guy was trying to make up for the much more wear on the barbers and some of the mercs. I told him I appreciated the extra dimes.

In conclusion, this coin shop is low on 90% stuff too.

One other very minor detail. When I looked at all the dimes at home, there was a 1921 - d merc in the dimes. It was only in good condition, but it was a nice surprise bonus.

Sounds to me like supply is tight on 90% and hence the sporadic availablility and high premiums. Another member recently posted that his LCS told him this was the situation. It's looking and sounding like a duck.

My local "we buy gold" guy and my usual bullion dealer in Va. are both charging six dollars over spot for ASE's. Don't know what junk is going for. I've been pretty fortunate with various "desperate" people selling me junk (I give them whatever coinflation shows that day). Lookng at the ad for Liberty think I outta buy from them. 1.38 over spot. fpr ASEs

CookieJar is a Filipino coin dealer that got my name somehow. I've not a clue how. Every six months, I get a THICK catalog of mailbid offers. Two rolls of 1943 war nickles "still have luster" min bid 50 each, one roll BU 1964 Kennedy halves (20 coins) min bid 190. Winning bid at 10% over second highest bid. Gave it a shot at 60 and 200. We'll see.

They may be offering more fiat, but I'm not selling mine.

I see that they have some in stock now even as the premiums are rising.

To think I got WL halves at spot + $0.70 just 5 months ago (granted spot was almost $33 at the time).

My last order included 40 Buffalo Indians at spot + $0.89 (just so I can get to a round 100). But from now on, I'm going with Maples and Philharmonics at ~ +$2.09.

I agree that junk silver is becoming harder to find, and when you do find it, the price over spot has gone up enough for me to go for generic bullion over 90% coins . . . for the time being at least.

How much would be sufficient?

I don't hardly have anything 90%.

I was pondering a roll of quarters but then again should I go 2 or 3?

I realize this may be more in anticipation (as well as survivor) of more trouble with the dollar but I'd hate to think I can't unload 1oz's or even 5 oz's of pure!?!?

I like 90% simply because it is recognizable and fungible. In a grid-down or a fiat emergency, it is denominated small enough to be used for ordinary transactions with little trouble. It can also be readily hidden for security.

If he has any, Hans Tulving has the lowest premiums around. His 5,000 dollar minimum purchase can be intimidating as can his foul attitude and general disdain for other living organisms, but other than that, he has some of the lowest all-around premiums in the retail sphere.
