    What is this Sell you speak of? :D
    I just picked up an assortment of 11.
    2 Morgan and 9 better date peace 1935/1926 dollars @$15ea shipped.
    I'll flip the 35's for $25+ and the 26's for $20+ at the next coin meeting.
    What doesn't sell gets shelved.

    News to me...must be regional. Milk prices are stable here in southern Louisiana with only Walmart selling a gallon of their own brand for about $1 less than the national chain stores.

    One supermarket chain that was formerly based in the northwest uses milk and eggs as loss leaders with little clip-out coupons here, but, the price of milk continues to rise in these parts where the premium brands are selling ~ $6.50, approaching $7 per gallon. That may be chicken feed in the far left mega cities or the northeast where incomes are significantly higher, but it's a bundle here.

    More like what doesnt sell is cheaper silver to shelf.
    In the long way around the block....
    I cant say I've EVER made a profit on coins, but some I've gotten into for very little money.

    I have been buying more U.S. silver coins ( silver dollars, halves. quarters and dimes) now at spot than I did when it was 16.00 or so. Is this where Silver should be around mid 17 teens or is it too high?

    That is such a subjective thing to try to figure out. This is an entirely unscientific observation..... As I have watched these charts, it seems we have these crazy spells where silver climbs, we get excited and then it slowly falls back to a reasonable level. Myself, yes I think we are still a bit inflated. Up till this last peak, my trigger point was $15.00 an ounce. Since this last rise, I think now my trigger point will be $16.00 an ounce. I think it will settle at around $16.00 in due course..... And that is nothing more than my gut feel. I am not buying right now.

    No sir. One uninformed comment a day for me is my limit.

    From time to time, I will look through the junk Peace and Morgan dollars at my LCS. I have found some pretty nice coins that may be worn, but have little damage. I will only buy the coins with good honest wear, that appear naturally toned. Rim dings, scratches and other defects are a deal breaker for me. I am OCD when it comes to coins. For about the last year or so, the price has been $17. for the Peace, and $19. for the Morgans.

    Unless culls you can’t buy these close to spot.

    Yes, I do use the same formula, but that is why I have so few of them. They are hardly ever sold by the .715 per $1 face formula. I can't remember the last time I got a Peace or Morgan dollar at spot.
