    Okay, not really a haul, just got a good deal. I got this and a small stamp collection for $15. Not bad, considering the 100 Pesos is worth $15 melt value alone. He couldn’t find the other foreign coins he had so I left my number.

    Oh, and I also bought a professional coin counter for $20. Just got it for CRHing and whatnot but it sells for $300 on eBay. :D

    I've never done garage sales, but maybe I should start. Nice grabs.

    Nice Mexican plata! I've always thought that French 10 centimes was one o0f the prettiest designs.

    Only been to a couple myself. But there are definitely people that almost know nothing about coins, occasionally have some they want to get rid of.

    I love those big beefy Mexican coins.
    I was lucky to get quite a few of them for a bit less than melt when silver was ~$15/oz.

    How about a picture of the counter for us professionals in the peanut gallery.

    Sadly, both Philly mint. The 1927 is great condition though!

    I do garage sales for flipping when I have time on Saturdays and sometimes Sunday. (early morning)

    I rarely find coins, although I always ask. In my area I probably find a small coin collection like this or a small jar of foreign coins once for every 20+ sales I go to.

    That being said though, there is always tons of cool unique stuff (and if you have the time and knowledge) lots of room for profit.

    Yeah, I wanted to see the horn on that 1927, even if it's a P.

    I love them too. I have four different large Mexican coin designs now, although sadly many of the large Mexican pesos have low silver percentages.

    Sorry for the bad photos, I had it on the wrong light setting for coins. Looks much better in person, haha.
