I just checked my mailbox and lo and behold. This cool 100 Spanish Pesetas silver coin showed up. Its from 1966 and shows the last of the great fascist leaders Francisco Franco "Claudillo" on the Obverse. Its a half ounce of silver ASW and interesting historicaly. And for you old timers... "Yes, he is still dead !!!"
Romania 100 Lei 1993
Michael the Brave (1558-1601)
I really like the obverse portrait!
My Gawd Collect. Those are great 8 realies, especially from salvage. I see the one on the left was minted in Mexico City, was the one on the right also minted there or perhaps Madrid. Hard to tell from photo. But, those are a couple of super realies. Coingrads!!!!!
Thanks. They were the best ones I found at a recent show. There were others, but they had corroded considerably, even to the point where details had become obliterated. Looking closely at the mintmarks, I see that they both have the M with the little o on top.
Not surprised by the Vickie's being that much :/
I picked up a few more 1940's 3&6 pence British 1941 6 pence looks to be Bu plus it has the UK Royal reverse on it.
:kewl:When Silver was heading up so fast folks were just dumping + sell bu coin to get Silver profit.I just could not let some go to the smelter to get melted.
Thank you E :thumb:!!!
Very true Jello. I wish I had the stomach to buy silver right now because I am sure we would all be sick if we saw what was being sent to the smelter right now.
Man, what I wouldn't give to have the ability to go through all of the sacks before they got smelted and cherrypick what I wanted.
Does anyone know where you could buy bags of world silver at melt? I wonder if a guy was quick he could pick through it and sell it back with not too much of a chance of a major dip hurting too much.
I just lucky I have a very goody friend that own North Alabama largest coin shop. I open for him on Saturdays,while he out to shows.I spend most of my pay for coins that could be melted in trade for my time.
Love the bi-metallic & the Argentina.
