    $15.5 a piece is insanely good and even moreso with the grading. Wow. I'm curious to know why he would sell those so low. The best I can get locally is $22 a piece for Peace and $25 for Morgans!

    A very successful jewelry shop that buys unwanted gold and silver on the side. They are buying cheep I suppose and have no real interest beyond the melt value. They do great with the jewelry and getting full premiums on coins is not their bag. They also have a large drum full of antique silver that I pick from time to time. My guess is they are buying Morgans at about 80% of melt. So why do they sell to me so low??? First I ask, they make a few bucks and move on. Keep in mind these coins are not on display in the store. I walk in and ask if they have anything interesting, and he pulls this stuff from the back, from his out of sight inventory. So not actively for sale....that is why I ask.

    I never seem to get outstanding deals from stores that display their silver dollars for what that is worth.

    Sounds like you are the only dog buying bones from them.. if they sell estate jewelry on the bay,or anything related to what they buy from the walk in patrons, and they may not sell on ebay.. i have no idea....surprised they don't resell them there at more profit....or have a listing source on the bay...

    most every venue i walk into, be it jewelry stores that buy, or LCS or pawns...or other? even!, and i do walk in to many.....all still sell and have morgans in one box, peace dollars in another and morgans at 21-35 as circs...and peace SD's 19-27.50 circs.. you found a great boneyard!!

    I'd love to find a local place with antique/older silver bullion at the price of generics. I love the older pieces, and hate to think they are being destroyed. Like one of those places who buys them for the scrap and intends to just send them to the refiner to be melted for spot price but will sell to me for the same or just a bit more. I've seen several mentions on here about shops with "buckets" of silver that you can just pick through, occasionally finding some rare gems! I wouldn't think a coin or bullion shop would be a good source as they likely could spot rares and resell for the premium they command. Maybe a pawn shop is better? Any suggestions? Maybe if I actually looked I'd find a place like that...
