Melt value on the silver about $70; Dansco album cover a little worn but all the pages in great shape and all the slides intact. I would pay $15 for the album itself. A couple of interesting coins as well. The modern halves are pretty toast; the walker is pretty good. I will take individual coin shots. Starting with the 1873 S with arrows liberty seated quarter, which in AG 3 has a $85 guide value. Has a couple of old scratches maybe graffiti edit but maybe not.

    I have an empty 7070 with the same pages. Immaculate condition.

    The empty album is averaging around $70 nowadays, so definitely a nice buy!

    At our local swap meet. I have gotten stuff from him before, he has a lot of mineral pieces. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show ended 2 or 3 weeks ago so lots of gems and minerals still around.

    With those coins plus the album, definitely a good buy...! Is it just me or the lighting, not sure, but looks like some/many of the clear plastic sliders are missing...?

    It probably the lighting as all of them are there.

    Did some additional calculations. 24 coins. 15 silvers. $66.46 melt at $25.73 per ounce. Plus $1.65 face for the non-silver = $67.11 total. That would mean I paid $17.89 for the Dansco and melt/face for the coins.

    Book value is calculated at $330.32 for just the coins. If Market on the Dansco is $70 as mentioned above then around $400 retail. 50 percent of that would be around $200 for everything. A few of the coins have old scratches and not sure how that would affect value. The 1877 seated dime is a CC! Has a couple of scratches which could be graffiti as they look like an A; but still a CC for melt ain't bad. Will take pictures shortly.

    Nice score. I have very fond memories of filling up that album back in the day.

    1877 CC Dime. Pretty rough shape looking at the close ups but still having a blast researching the dates and MM. Red book says 7.7 million minted, but value is double the 77 S with more than 3x the number of coins minted. DSCN3744~2.JPG DSCN3745~2.JPG DSCN3747~2.JPG DSCN3746~2.JPG

    Liberty Seated Variety 3 - arrows at date 1853. Also a little rough but seems to be original and not messed with. DSCN3748~2.JPG DSCN3749~2.JPG DSCN3751~2.JPG DSCN3750~2.JPG

    Thought I had a chance for a decent V nickel but the scratches on the obverse would detail. If not those then maybe the rim notch is PMD? I am not seeing obviously metal movement though. DSCN3760~2.JPG DSCN3761~2.JPG DSCN3763~2.JPG

    Finally got around to photographing the other 3 quarters. First the Washington. Probably not the DDO and only worth melt. DSCN3776~2.JPG DSCN3778~2.JPG DSCN3781~2.JPG DSCN3780~2.JPG

    Next is the last year of issue for the SLQ 1930 S. Nothing special but at least no deep scratches. Maybe a $9 coin? Greysheet F12? DSCN3766~2.JPG DSCN3768~2.JPG DSCN3770~2.JPG DSCN3769~2.JPG

    This 1908 D Barber Quarter has some deep scratches on the reverse. I deep one on the obverse as well. Likely taking it down from a $10 coin to melt... DSCN3771~2.JPG DSCN3773~2.JPG DSCN3775~2.JPG DSCN3774~2.JPG

    Additional photos of the Liberty Seated quarter 1873 S with arrows. DSCN3782~2.JPG DSCN3784~2.JPG DSCN3787~2.JPG DSCN3785~2.JPG
    Greysheet G4 would be $75, this is probably AG3 but I don't know this series.
