    Great fun. Hope you make some profit. Lots of dealers don’t think it’s worth their time to sell coins for a buck or two a piece, and so dump them in bulk. Happy hunting

    Google has the value of 1966 Jersey 1d at 20¢. Not sure where $235 comes from.

    Maybe a typo of 23.5 cents ;)

    Yeah, I looked at your other posts too, and they're nice coins but those prices have no basis in reality. I can see why those shops went out of business.

    That’s why I love you guys
    Honest answers. No idea where the price came from
    The old couple who owned the store had family help the last few years before they passed. Pricing was often inflated. I bought by the handful.So far I’ve sold about 20% for nearly $1000 profit. One was a Sutler Civil War token that went for $368 on eBay

    Did you buy the whole tub from the store? I think I would, at the type of coins your are finding.

    Wish I had bought them all. Took home about 100 lbs, about half loose, half in 2x2s. Left the rest for seed
    Anything marked over $10 or I could identify as silver or before 1930 went in my bag. Paid about $200 total
