Out of curiosity(I have recently inherited coins from my Grandfather and it has created a huge interest for me) I have been seeing people say they have bought bulk silver coins on eBay, along with other sites. So I have a couple questions to help me get pointed in the right direction!

How do I know what to look for as well as know what NOT to buy?
The people selling bulk coins, would they have already gone through the coins themselves and taken out the good ones(valuable)?
Is it worth buying bulk silver coins?

Any help I get is greatly appreciated! This has been an awesome community thus far! :)

Bulk silver coins oneBay are typically just that. I would say you are unlikely to find much treasure and most coins will be searched. That being said you could easily get a full set of 1937 to date this way (excluding a few key date halves and dollars).

People do occasionally find treasures in dealer's bulk silver bins, though it seems that most reports are for out-of-country coins (i.e., Canadian coins at US dealers, German coins at Canadian dealers.......etc).

You best bet would be the occasional lot that you see on eBay from US dealers offering large quantities of early Canadian silver coins. You might get lucky on one of these and get a lot of pre-1937 silver at a small premium to melt value.

You could also find on eBay lots of bulk silver that include nice grade common date coins.....say 1950s and 1960s silver. You could also look out for bulk lots of cheap George VI halves. With silver down sharply, it is the cheapest time to buy in a few years.

I got lucky when I bought a half roll of 1953 One cents. They were likely checked for a SF variety but the seller missed one full DDR. I think I have only seen one on eBay, not sure.

That wretched Verdigris, I know. But I'm thinking of treating it with something to halt the corrosion process. Hopefully without the coin losing too much of it's appeal & value given its higher grade. It's getting harder & harder to find these historical pieces in high grades at reasonable prices.
