    That looks like a great deal to me. About double your total cost in silver value, well done

    If you want to make a quick 10% let me know. Kidding. Not an offer to buy. Unless you’re willing. Then I’m dead serious. Kidding again.

    Probably paid less than 50% of FMV.

    Cool. When I do a search for sold values on ebay, I'm shocked at how many great bargains I've missed. Luck was with you.

    I lose out more often than I win. But it sure is nice when I do get a win :)

    I forgot to add that there was a random 1982 memorial cent in the pile of wheaties. So the spendable face value is $9.26 :p

    If you end up with more in silver than you paid in cash you win.
