    I have been on a lucky streak of late. Just got .9445 ASW OF french coins dating from 1840 (1/2 franc) to 1916 50 C. two 2 francs one from 1871 and the other from 1914 and a one franc coin all for 22.XX about five bucks under melt. 2 of the coins have holes in them and the 1840 is slick on the front but good on the back. My first French silver so I AM HAPPY and below melt even happier... I also scored an 1875 A five Mark coin which has a lot more silver in it than those 5 marks do for 37.XX but that was more of a Numi purchase

    Ordered some more 90% from STowne right before the markets opened overseas. Their premiums seem to have increased in the past month or so, but still the best deal on smallish quantities of 90% online that I know of.

    one 1868 10 centimos for $3.35 ( now I have all the Spanish royals on coins from carlos III to Alfonso VIII except Joe Bonapart which I do not count)
    one capped bust dime with no date ( hated having 19 so now it is an even round 20) $4.02
    one three US three cent silver for 3 bucks no date.
    one 1933 New Zealand Half Crown Coin; 14.1400 grams, .500 Fineness, .2273 oz. ASW ( this coin is pretty ) $4.75

    I don't know very much about metals, but wouldn't this kind of silver be harder to sell? Just asking, I have no idea.

    I agree that is why I diversify. I have more US than anything but in the right situation when silver is highly sought after anything I can get below melt is good fodder Also the queen Isebella II coin was purely a numi purchase as well as the three cent and bust capped dime. The odl US stuff can be moved pretty easy. Especially the three cent coin ( smallest coin ever minted by the US mint BTW). These are highly sought after and I could sell it for five buck 2-morrow if the need presented itself. The New Zealand half crown is a fine example of getting 50% silver coins well below melt. The coin has an ASW ( actual silver weight) of .2273 you multiply that number times spot to get the actual silver value. so 28.64 is spot times .2273 = $6.51 ( always round up with money rule appplies) so i bought $6.51 worth of silver for $4.75. Assuming I can sell the coin for less than melt and should silver prices increase enough it is profitable. However there is also a good chance I can get melt out of it if silver is truly sought after. This being the case I did well right now.

I need to post a picture of them they have world trade center stuff on them. the pentagon an eagle the statue of liberty something about the police oh I would have to go to the bank and get them out and look.
