    My son has a buddy that buys unpaid storage units. They found a bag full of old change in a unit they purchased this morning. Roughly $20.00-$25.00 face value. I threw out a number of $250.00 for them. They were tickled with that and I am supposed to have a bag of old silver delivered tonight.

    I will. My son is running interference for me. They are in his car and won't make it to my house till late tonight so I won't get to peruse the booty until after work tomorrow.

    These are his photos to me. I made him show me the edges... He needs to clean his fingernails.

    Well crud. It wasn't the haul I expected. Talk about a rookie mistake. I failed to take into account 40% silver halves which the bulk of the haul was.
    33 Halves @ 40%...... $4.00
    7 Halves @ 90%.......$10.00
    5 Quarters @ 90%....$5.00
    28 Roosevelt 90% Dimes...$2.00
    11 Mercury 90% Dimes.....$2.00
    Two no-date buffalo's and three war cents.
    I figure I still came out ahead. Rough math tells me the silver is about $305.00....Certainly not a windfall though.

    getting $4 apiece for the 40% will be quite the challenge.

    If you don't mind the new guy inquiring, what would be a decent selling value for a 40% Kennedy half these days?

    I've got a couple rolls of them I would like to rehome.
