As long as they are already yours and if you don't need money right now, keep them all. Nothing to loose and someday you'll be glad you did.

so they are just worth silver melt?


No.yes

They are only worth melt value.


No, again. yes still.

If they were all damaged then that may be the case. These all appear to be in pretty good shape and are worth more than silver melt. That's "numismatic value." However, that value won't be much over silver value for those particular coins.


I don't want to burst your bubble but you can buy a low mint state 1964 half for the same price as an XF or lower 1964 half. They are very commonly found in dealer junk bins and you will not get any numismatic premium for a 1964 half below at least MS63 from any dealer

@Steele

Please don't edit within a quote. Make your arguments outside of that.

I have to differ and that's why I said what I did. I don't know about dealer "junk bins" (and why these would be considered junk in the first place) but on eBay, 1964 Kennedy halves in circulated condition are consistently selling for more than silver melt.

Currently, melt value is just under $6 and even in bulk lots, they are very recently selling for $7, $8 or more a piece plus shipping.

Maybe I have a different definition of numismatic value and junk silver than others.

The way I see it, all coins that were used for circulation (at least) maintain a numismatic value and only a progressive extent of damage will denude their ultimate value to a collector of whatever coins they may be.

On eBay when you buy a circulated 1964
Kennedy for $7, the seller is only getting around the melt price after paying the eBay and Pay Pal fees.

Here are a few SOLD listings:

Single coin labeled as AU:

172781920493

A few multi-coin lots described as Circulated or not specified:

311916879897
172508528651
162587918311

There are many, many SOLD listings with varying quantities and varying prices. Some sold for half of melt, many sold for approximately melt, and many sold for well over melt.

My argument isn't about the value difference between grades.

There are many collectors who are not primarily interested in PM content of coins. Those who are will pay less than those who are factoring numismatic value in their purchase.

OP has expressed that he is more interested in selling, being a single 26 year old father. There is a modest difference between "only worth melt" of $36 (he shows six I believe) and $60 (with many being sold on eBay for about $10 a piece).

The market there is anything but consistent.

Search sold listing sorted by price lowest to highest and the first 400 or more sold listings are all for under or around $8 shipped. after shipping, paypal and eBay fees the seller is lucky to see $6.

That's exactly what I did to find those listings I posted and also went beyond that price in the sorted SOLD listings. I also said this in the last post:

How many sold for more than $8 shipped?

My question regarding these comments is: what determines the value of a single coin in a transaction?

Is it based on net receipts of the seller or is it based on gross expenditures of the buyer?

I'd just hold on to any 90% coin unless they need the cash. Silver is bound to go up again at some point.
