for $10 US each. Less than a dollar over spot. I know they don't have great numismatic premia, but I couldn't resist buying 65-80 year old coins in this grade (look better in hand, these are scans) for spot + $1.

Sweet!
The 1952 dollar looks like a Short Water Line.
Might also want to look for doubling on the HP for the GVI dollars, and rotated dies.

Canadian coins are hated here. I've purchased dozens of large cents at 5 or 6 to $1 US. $1 over spot is the most I think I've ever paid for Canadian silver -- including Victoria. Much of it is G/VG, but some significantly better.

At one coin show more than a decade ago, I purchased 20 1960s silver dollars at $4.50 each when melt was $8-9. Still have them.

And don't get me started on the $300 in current Canadian coins that I've picked up at 5 or 6 to $1 US -- mostly Loonies and Twonies.

You pick up loonies and toonies at 5-6 per dollar?

Picked a loonie and a Swiss 5 franc out of the junk box on Tuesday. Picked up a half dozen large copper nickel dollars for $1 a few weeks back.

Last week they had a partial roll (2/3? 3/4?) of PL 1964 halves that they offered to me for melt.
