While I was at the local shop here today..I asked if he had any junk silver..he said a guy came in yesterday and sold him a box of these things..figured they were pretty cool,..each has a Franklin Mint mark on them...twenty dollar Virgin Island pieces..I liked them because they have shipwreck treasure on them..each one weighed at around .5677 and are Sterling bought four for $70..figure I will buy some more, and try and put together some sort of set of them!

I bought a lot of silver coins from Ebay a couple/few years ago and they were all in airtites and those were in pill bottles. It was the first I had seen this storage method and works pretty good. I just acquired a new larger one but they don't quite fit the same in there and it seems as if it narrows just slightly at the bottom. I can fit 9 encapsulated coins in the small container and 19 in the big one. Anyway just thought I'd share FWIW.

I don't know exactly what you mean by clad but that looks to me to be a 15 grain solid .999 Fine Silver bar :thumbs_up:

Very thoughtful woman you have! Give her a high five from the gang.

15 grains is tiny. 24 grains to a pennyweight. 20 pennyweights to a troy ounce.

its what i suspected....its just a silver coated bar. she was charged 35 by the LCS, im going tomorrow

telling him to give me the monies worth or hes lost my business and all of my friends to.

take advantage of my gf like that no way

Good luck handling the situation yanks.

Back to the subject though... Here's a cool round I picked up for $32 today. I like to pick up any themed rounds for spot based pricing when possible, but sadly most dealers know that a lot of these rounds are worth more on eBay so I see them less frequently. Today's find, a Harley coin:

Thanks Newmisty..One of the things I enjoy about the early Prussian coins is the fact, that back then regions of the country were broken into different states, so each state minted it's own coins and currency, so you have different designs, in some cases of just a few years or less, so alot of times you have very low mintages, :thumbs_up:

Based on thisfollowing ebay auction that just ended, it seems that these fetch a very high premium on ebay:


http://www.ebay.com/itm/14095913475...IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&autorefresh=true


That above ebay auction for that Engelhard Stevcoevens silver round went for $103.49. I have been following several of those past ebay auctions on that particular Engelhard Stevcoevens silver round and most of these seem to get anywhere between $50 to $103 on ebay.

EDIT: The following is another completed ebay auction of an Engelhard Stevcoevens silver art round that went for $74.00 on ebay:

After viewing this thread I don't want to show off my measly silver stack. I feel humbled.

I buy to stack not much else. But I did pick up a silver round from a doc in Tulsa.

Are you in Tulsa? I used to live there, I moved to MI last May. Tulsa has some great coin stores, always deals to be had!

Figure the odds.....
I hunted thru pages and pages then a search to find the show and tell thread, but came up with nothing.


Lo and behold KnurledNut has a 25 ounce cmi bar :thumbs_up:
what are the measurements of your 25 ounce bar?

I was looking to post up my recent 50 ounce cmi bar
here is a cmi 10 and 50 with some spare change to size.

You have to start somewhere, slowly but surely it will add up! Don't fret, you own more metal in your picture than 99% of the public out there, nothing to be bashful about especially on this board....
