Such a great look to them. FuturisticLove mercury dimes best, have been trying to just get them lately. Halves I really like the Ben Franklin 1/2's. Quarters I'm not so fussy but if I can get the older ones for the same price as the Washington 1/4's I'll take them. I'm certain that buying silver is like a drug addiction. Just need a little fix now and then to keep me steady. Bur I could quit anytime I want. No seriously.
I found a nice looking '43 D war Nickel at the store yesterday. It was just laying on the floor. Edited to add: it wasn't far from a Coinstar machine, so I assume that it somehow made it's way out of the reject tray onto the floor, and then got kicked to where I saw it. It's super shiny, but has a spot on the back of it.I really don't expect to find and silver or oddity in modern coinage.
High five grandpa. Were they in tins or what?My grandfather who died in 1991 had a 6 cubic foot steel safe from the1930s. It was loaded with merc dimes, Franklin halves and a few rolls of peace dollars. He also had rolls buffalo nickles stacked inside. All of it was pulled from pocket change and he was ahead of the curve.
I still check my change for that all silver edge. It's like Charlie Brown trying to kick that football - Lucy always yanks it away, but he (I) keep trying.
I snagged a '63 Rosie just before Christmas, and I keep all the pre '82 Coppers ( pennies).#48Fan and 11c1p: I also horde all my change. I really don't expect to find and silver or oddity in modern coinage.
More like 2-3 dollars, but I get your gist. I just saw individual mercury dimes for $3.50 ea at a local coin show. I bought bags and bags of junk silver of all types back 10-15 years ago. I'd mostly buy $500 face value from my old local dealer. Unfortunately he passed on a couple of years ago.If we ever need to use them, they will be the "One Dollar" bill, stack high, wide, and deep...
junk silver has been trading at about 25x face ..so if my math is right that implies about $35 silver per ozt ......so junk silver is out performing many forms of silver right now........ i remember a lot of people talking junk silver down on GIM in past years saying it was as substandard form to .999......i remember in 1980 it was considered the prime form of silver in the hunt bros run up....personally i like it for its fractional qualities and its sovereign constitutional status...its always been a main component of my stack...........not sure why but i have always like the mercury (winged liberty) dimes as my favorite coin ...2nd is the St Gaudens double eagle but its hard to have a bag of them LOLMore like 2-3 dollars, but I get your gist.

The way I look at junk currently is, dimes =$2-3, quarters =$5-6, and half dollars = $10-12. If the SHTF these values may rise and we'll adjust accordingly.
i agree.......the only negative for me is that its not very space efficient to store like nice bars and it tends to be dirty to handleSome have the mindset that their silver has to be shiny. I am not one of those people and have always had a preference for junk silver over any other type of PM. When I see a mixed pile of 90% dimes, quarters, and halves I have to admit it revs me up. Looking at a pile of 1-oz bars or rounds also does that but it's not the same. There's just something special about junk silver that's hard for me to explain.
