Fractional Silver-Advice

Hey guys, I collect ASE's as my way of investing in silver. I'd like to have some fractionals maybe for a WTSHTF scenario. What say you about 90% silver vs. fractional libertads and so forth? I'm speaking of Roosevelt dimes, (cause they don't really carry any intrinsic value as do Barbers or Mercurys), pre '64 quarters, and halves, etc...
Thanks

I bought a few dozen Apmex fractionals, but the premium just isn't worth it. Go for dimes and war nickels.

I think I'm more interested in Roosevelts than Mercurys, due to the "wear" factor.

BigCoins.com used to have decent prices on 90%, but I haven't checked in a while.

I prefer to buy 90% at a local shop where I can inspect it (for wear) before hand. We have in the past bought $X face bags from an online vendor (Monex or Blanchard - I can't remember which).

That's it for me then. ASEs for 1 OZT and greater. 90% for fractional.

If buying rolls, weigh them before buying, easiest inspection.
I grab several rolls more than I wish to purchase, then weigh them on the counter scale at LCS. Dimes are my favorite fractional and a roll should weigh 125 grams. Few do weigh 125 grams but the ones which weigh more than 123 grams are keepers. Sometimes Barbers in great shape are in the heavy rolls. I prefer Mercuries as people recognize the Merc as silver and question the Roosevelt dimes as clad Rosies are still in circulation.
Regardless, a silver dime represents a days pay to more than 2/3rds the world's population. I truly enjoy buying 50 days pay, rolls of silver.
We, the US, will be there soon enough. $109 for 7 full weeks of labor. I will graciously employ.
