I hand picked some “junk” silver at my LCS today for 21.25 face. I like “junk” silver, because it satisfies both my numismatic desires, as well as a way to stack some silver.

Let’s see some of your “junk” silver purchases. :)

    I miss $13x face 90% :'(
    I haven't bought any in a long time.

    Collector, occasional seller

    A week ago I picked up a roll of Canadian dimes, quarters, and halves for 17x face 20x on the halves. Must have been a collection. Good run of dates especially in the dimes

    Junk? This is some good looking junk!

    Some of those Washies seem to depict some toning.

    Found in a LCS junk Barber coin box a few weeks back. Paid 28X face.

    $5.60??? Let me see if I have this right as it was explained to me about "junk silver". $1.00 face = silver spot ($22.60) plus premium ($2.75) multiplied by .715 which comes out to $18.12 / $1.00 face which is approx. 18X. Is my premium wrong? How is that determined?

    Yes, those 7 Washingtons are really brilliant with a little bit of pleasing toning on some. From the looks of them, it looks like they were all stored together. I snagged those right away.

    I do not look for junk silver.... Though I get it in change sometimes (dimes or quarters). If I saw some WLH's for sale I might be tempted though. I do like those coins a lot. Cheers, RickO

    The ‘08-D Barber is definitely cleaned, that’s why I got it cheaply, and the ‘11-D was listed as a ‘11-“P”.
