    Nice!

    Those two pictures are so satisfying to look at! Just make sure that no one deposits the rolls of half dollars at the bank. LOL

    @Topdollarpaid, what a great photo! There's nothing better than laying out a large number of old silver coins like you have!

    Is it time to get out the Overton book and check for rare die marriages? Or do you just enjoy them like it appears you do?

    Thanks for posting this.

    @Topdollarpaid , I note a few Reeded Edge half dollars "salted in" the four rolls in coin tubes!

    Looks like a fun evening of attributing!

    What's the story behind the 'hoard?'

    Just awesome.
    Zoom in on the rolls and look at all of the edge lettering.

    Btw, looks like a nasty dose of PVC in the second roll from the top, near the middle.
    Might want to get that treated.

    The OP wrote: No sorry here just a 25 year stash.

    I assume he meant story.

    I might have a problem with hoarding,
    You should see the seated coins.

    Ok @Topdollarpaid what is the game that we got to play to get'em? GTG, How many miles are on your 1976 Vega, uhhh, just a blind guess of how many of those you sent into PCGS and what they will grade???

    Thanks for the opportunity to play!

    Nice stash!

    No Vega here although in 1976 I almost bought a used pinto if that counts

    None on these have ever been sent in to any grading service as far as I know.

    It’s not really a game I am just sharing some people enjoy looking.
