    Picked up this nice 1891 Crown for practically nothing at a local estate/tag sale. Really like it. I love big chunky silver coins.

    That's a great buy even if you paid only silver value.

    This is a exact reason I go to the monthly flea market in my area. Treasure hunting is super fun.

    Very sweet. I have an auction I'm going to tomorrow morning that has several British crowns in it.

    off-topic - it's actually Unfrozen Cavemen Lawyer from early 1990s SNL. I use this avatar in most other forums I frequent through the interwebs.

    Quick question...
    Do you find a lot of coins at estate sales? I have never seen them there before, but see a lot of people (eBay for example) who buy coins from estate sales.

    On ebay a lot of things SAY they are estate sale liquidations, but i don't know how many actually are. I wouldn't say I see a lot of coins at estate sales when I go, but it's always worth a look, you never know what deals you may find.

    It's NEARLY the ONLY way I acquire coins. Going to another one tomorrow.

    Really? Maybe the ones by me just don't like putting out coins or something...

    Nice get, I had a good buddy of mine find a us 1/10 oz. eagle at a yard sale junk box for a buck. Not bad. How can you not love a nice old crown?
