Did you have to pay a significant premium to get the Kennedy halves in BU? Like you, I prefer BU to "junk" silver, but I fear I'll never regain the premium unless silver really takes off one of these days.

You can probably see me if you glance into your rear view mirror. I'm about a car length back at 910 oz. Let me know when you cross the finish line. We'll start the 1000 oz. club.

OK, that sounds good. At a guess, I would say that this will happen sometime in April.

Do you think Provident or APMEX would still be in business today, if they had not kept up with the times, an upgrading at one point to selling online, doubt it.....

Probably not, Hawk, but then it is probably the Internet that makes these businesses possible.

Did you have to pay a significant premium to get the Kennedy halves in BU?

They do cost a little more but it is not a huge amount more. I get a lot of pleasure from looking at my collection and if that costs a little more, then so be it. In most cases, the cost increase from circulated to BU coins is pretty reasonable unless the coins are old.

Today's APMEX prices show:

Kennedy avg circ = $274.66 per roll, 10 or more rolls
Kennedy BU = $282.29 per roll, 10 or more rolls

Sometimes it is cheaper to buy a $100 bag than to buy the same number of coins in rolls... but not always. We need to check and compare the prices to be sure.

One thing that continues to amaze me is that the prices of proof coins can vary a lot and can even be cheaper than some circulated coins on the same denomination. The proof Statehood quarters are a great example. They are gorgeous coins, yet often cost less than circulated Washington quarters that don't look nearly as nice.
