I like the silver pesos, too
Dude, I love it. I'm getting married in a little over a week and I just got to see my fiance's real SILVER ware last weekend at a shower and it's awesome. I just love silver. It just amazes me the value of the metal. She thinks I'm pretty strange because of my obsession with bank searching for silver, and she thought it was real strange how much I liked her silver ware. Neat though.
Timberwolves and Philharmonic picked up for $42 each (3 plastic t-wolves for $38)
Grizzlies and Kookaburras for $47 (one Grizz for $40)
Pandas for $36 (two for $40)
Koalas and Rabbits for $40
Buffalos for $42
Assorted ASE's (one 1986) each for $37
Silver Bust (roll of 20) for $37 each
2008 Silver Proof Set for $73
1964 Kennedy's at 25x face
That is just one red box of my silver!
*****Thank A Vet today & every Day of the year u see one!
A newbie to this forum, but here are pics of 4 rolls of silver coins I bought about 4-5 years ago:
First 2 pics, 2 rolls of Proof Franklin Half Dollars 1961, 1962, 1963. I paid $152 for the 40 coins. Even then, that was kind of a lucky fluke.
Pic 3, 1992 Silver Eagle Roll, paid $225 in 2006. Pic 4, 1964 Proof Kennedy Half Dollar Roll, paid $133.
Ah, the good old days......
$1 face 90%
$4 face 40%
$1.75 face 35%
$0.50 face 80% Candian
Sterling silverware heads, 6 oz pure
An 80% CAD dime and an ASE not in pic. If I have some money left over after the Teletrade auction I'll probably buy more. Should I get Koalas for $4 over spot or 40% haves for melt? The website I'm buying from pays $2 over spot on Koalas and $2 under spot for $2 under melt.
Most of these were purchased between 2005-2009 back when Silver was less crazy. I have some real bargains in the mix. I purchased a heavily toned Maple Leaf for £7...$11.50. I guess the seller figured it was worth nothing because it was so heavily toned. There is a picture of it below...
I have 34* 1 Ounce coins with 2 others in the post at the time of writing (2010 & 2011 Proof Britannias).
*2 not pictured a U.S Silver Eagle & Mexican Libertad.... I forgot.
Those are some good lookin' forks.
Kangaroo wise I have...
2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2009 Ken Done Proof and 2009 Sunset. So 7 in total.
I'm also after the high relief proof, I let one slip on eBay the other week which sold for £56 ($92).... I forgot to bid for it. I'd have gone up to £100. Even more upsetting is the Official Website of the UK Royal Mint had them for sale for £60... but they have all sold out.
I cashed £1000 in shares a month ago to put in my back account in readiness for Olympic Tickets going out of my account... however it looks like I have been unsuccessful in my bid for tickets. Instead of putting the money back into shares, I'm going to buy some coins.
Pre-2008 a 1oz UNC Britannia on the Royal Mint site was £16.99 ($28)... now they're £44.99 ($74). A 164% Increase! However the proof Britannias have gone from £55 to £67, only a 22% increase.
It's the same for many other proof coins, and recently I have been buying proof instead of Unc.... because I feel less ripped off.
I've just totalled up the amount of silver in my entire collection. From the Silver Pandas to the Standing Liberty Quarters the grand total is.... 51.49823 Ounces of Silver.
NGC ATB holders
I just got back a set of ATBs that I sent to NGC for grading. I really like their holders. The incuse script on the edge is very easy to see on the NGC holders.
I sent sets to both PCGS and to NGC at the same time. NGC had this set back to me within 20 days. PCGS still has not started grading the sets I sent to them.
You left out the best part............What grades did they come back with?
