Today I decided to go for a walk downtown and visit a coin and jewelry shop down there I had been to once before. I decided to walk in again and see what they had to sell this time. They had a foreign bin that said 8 coins for a dollar so I figured for a dollar what could I lose by searching the bin. Little did I know I would be coming across these Norwegian silver coins (links provided to show just how lucky I was )!

Norway 1913 10 Ore: http://www.ngccoin.com/poplookup/Wo...coinid=94467

Norway 1914 25 Ore: http://www.ngccoin.com/poplookup/Wo...coinid=94554

Norway 1898 10 Ore: http://www.ngccoin.com/poplookup/Wo...coinid=94460

And to add to the score there was also a Philippines 1944D 10 centavos and Canadian 1968 dime 50% silver. All in all, I would have to say today was a good day to be a collector!

Great find! I've done the same at my dealer, but he sells them for $10 a pound... or .50 cents a coin.

8 for a buck is very reasonable. U-pick world buckets are typically twice that amount around these parts. And they still get heavily picked over.

Super finds, I love to get a deal on a dealer by using my knowledge over theirs, especially when they should know better, makes it that much sweeter.
