Someone offered me $575 for 50 rolls of uncirculated State Quarters (1 per state) and one roll of silver dimes. I had them on craigslist for $650. Should I go for it or wait. We are moving and they are heavy.

This is not an ad. I am just seeking value advice. I got these from dads estate. I collect Canadian coins. Ed

Are the quarter rolls, mint wrapped or bank wrapped?

They may be a few rolls I would keep if they were mint wrapped.

But in most cases, it would be hard to get over face value.

If you really want the money ...take the deal.

Considering that you can take the quarters to any bank for $500, I'd just hang on for at least $600 considering that you are including a roll of silver dimes too.

But when it is time to move, sometimes you have to do less wonderful things.

Good question about who rolled them. About half are rolled in an orange and white wrapper. The other half are in clear plastic. My dad went to the bank and got full rolls as they were released. So basically full rolls are worth pretty close to face. I just want to make sure I am not selling way to cheap. +\- $25 is fine. Money in hand is worth something. Ed

$500 for $500 in quarters and $5 silver x 15 = 575... Pretty much the offer is face value on the quarters and junk silver price on dimes.

Someone's offering you face value + $75 for a roll of (unspecified) silver Dimes?

I'd take it. But then again...

(Ever try schlepping around 50 rolls of quarters?)
