Went to my coin dealer today and picked up $600 in 90% silver today for just under spot. When I got home I found that almost a 1/4 of the older coins (Liberty and Franklin halves, Merc dimes and a Barber dime) were in better condition than those in my collection.
It was pretty exciting to see at first until I realized the time and effort it's going to take to swap better coins with collection.
No pictures really worth taking. Nothing is in great condition, just better than what I had. The shop I get it from is great. Everything is up to the minute spot price. Even when I grab Silver Eagles they charge spot. I have no idea how they actually turn a profit.
Congrats on the upgrades and on getting a great deal. The coin dealer I usually go to lets me spend hours sifting through his junk silver and gold coins and once in a while my persistence pays off. I recently picked up an 1843-O large date quarter eagle that's easily worth double the melt price he charged me.
