Hi,
I brought about 400+ coins for 18, so far I have found the following:

1838 Belgium franc
1933 20 French francs
1929 10 French francs
1931 10 french francs
1946 Australian florin
1946 Australian shilling

Will post pictures later today

Also found:

1924 German marks x2
1932 1/10 balboa pananama coins

I don't think there are any more silver coins, but there are still lots of interesting coins to look through.

Did you just go to your LCS and buy a bunch of coins at a bulk price?

Hi

Just returned from a visit to another junk shop, I picked up 370 coin and found the following coin, a 1816 shilling in great condition I only paid 14 for all the coins

Great find, that shilling is worth a lot more than 14 alone. Could you post some better photos of it? (Less blur) It looks to be in really good condition.

There seems to be some light toning on the coin, really pleased that I got such beautiful coin. I will try to take photos on my camera and upload later.

Its hard to value because theres some blur on the photo so I can't really tell the grade exactly. I just sold the same shilling for 80 in EF to UNC condition. There's a lot sold on eBay in VF condition for not a lot of money at all which is upsetting. Try using a stand to take the photo, if using a camera. Or, if using your phone, put some lights near the coin and rest your phone on a non-moving object such as a small box, so that it eliminates camera shake :)

You have clearly found the best junk shop in the world! I need to find one like that one.

Enjoy all your finds.
