Coin dealers often melt the PL sets from 1963 to 1967, and a dealer I knew had just acquired 30 sets from 1965. I asked if I could quickly scan through them and ended up buying one set just over spot that had a really nice 10-cent. I sent that coin to PCGS a while ago and recently got the results back:

It seems like the breeze is always gently blowing on your back, SPP. Nice buy!

When it comes to what is considered to be silver melt, most dealers just don't care or bother to look.

A beautiful example! What sort of price would someone expect to pay for that coin in that grade?

While we're not talking mega $$$ here, it does make one curious as to what coin dealers/shop owners devote their attention too. I'd imagine the vast majority are reasonably savvy and focus on the larger picture--most return for their investment (in holdings/inventory). Some things likely slip through the cracks--perhaps not big ticket items, but some nice 'overlooked' finds can be had. That's one reason I go through bins of coins at shops and shows. Managed to find some AU+/MS Japanese silver coins over the years, and a very nice 1930 GB 6 pence--perhaps MS62 (original, not cleaned); all for a small amount of pocket change.

Nice pick SPP. Probably an $80CAD coin.

Nothing like a top-pop from the melt bin. Just got a 1957 PL from the "scrap box" bin, it was in a 2x2. ICCS came back PL-65. It's not much but its a $60-70 coin for spot + $2

It would go for more than $80 imho. With the attractive toning and the DCAM I'd expect more than $100 and on a good day closer to $200. A good day is when a couple people both want it. Lol. I own the sole 68DCAM and some of those ones get a little lofty. Very nice pick up SPP!
