I came across a gentleman wanting to sell me bulk Barber & W.L. halves, guessing for silver only on my part. What is the going price for each? I went to Ebay to see what they were selling for the first time in a long time, but I couldn't find completed or sold auctions?

That's melt price, but coins like this get a little premium added. Not as much as the silver dollars.

Silver dollars have more silver content then silver half dollars.

Thanks Jimbucks, that's what I was seeking. When did Ebay stop posting completed or sold auctions?

You need to be signed in to access that info, perhaps you were not signed in. You can typically buy these cheaper than Ebay through APMEX, Provident Metals, and other online retailers, and often with no shipping.

Thanks again Jimbucks, I was not signed in. Now I'm trying to find my old account, I just signed up with a new user name, don't ask me how this happened?

I would offer 5% back of melt, which is what the big guys are buying them at.
