oriole Posted - Today :4H 10M ago I can tell you right now that my LCS would only be offering silver value for the silver ones, and face value for the others. the few foreign coins would be bought for a few dollars per pound. of course, my LCS is in Canada. It is fair because he sells coins in that condition for melt.
The simple equation for selling is if you want your money quickly and not have to do any work, you get less money. If you do the work (such as put it on eBay), it will take time but you will get more.
I am seeing about 6 ounces of silver and some spendable coins. If the LCS pays 80% of melt, that is $ 85 for the silver. I don't see you getting much more than $40 extra by selling on eBay, mostly for the silver dollars.
You have to decide whether it is worth it.
Hmm... Yeah I don't know if $40 more dollars is worth selling them on ebay. I take it I would have to almost sell the coins 1 by 1 on ebay.. and that doesn't sound fun @ shipping each one lol.
But thanks for the info! I'm glad to have that $85 price now. So if I do sell the silver coins to a local coin store or some other place, i'll know weather or not they are tryin to TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY HAIRY COIN NOOB BEHIND!! AND RIPPPP MEEE OFFF! lol.
sel_69l Posted - Today :3H 8M ago For these particular coins, oriole has said it exactly right.
Thanks for the info! yeah this site seems to be full of friendly helpful coin collectors! Kinda makes me want to be a coin collector some day!! lol
T-BOP Posted - Today :2H 25M ago Looks like all you have there is common junk silver and a few coppers and Nickels but nothing of value . If you really need to sell you will only get silver melt for most of it . I would keep the 1988-S silver OLYMPIAD unless they want to give you a premium for it . Sell at '' We buy Gold and Silver shops , coin shops , coin shows .
Good luck .
Thanks for the info!
Yeah all these coins I been going through are pretty much junk, I thought I had some rare coins, but turns out.. THEY ARE JUST TRASH! JUST LIKE MY COIN FINDING LUCK IS! lol.
also I forgot about that OLYMPIAD coin.. I don't know why I put that in the picture lol. I actually have the box/case or w/e it is for it, with some proof paper thingy. I'll probably just sell that one separate. I'll check and see if there is a "we buy gold and silver" shop by me, and maybe try that place 1st.
hfjacinto Posted - Today :1H 51M ago I don't know were you live, but like even you said, most of the stuff isn't worth more than melt. I would personally sell it to a local coin shop, there isn't much premium on anything you have their. If you can I would check out at least 2 and pick the one that offers you more money.
Thanks for the info!
Alright, yeah i'll probably give that a try @ coin shop 1st. Maybe i'll get lucky and they will be like... "OMG!! WE ALWAYS WANTED A BUNCH OF DAMAGED TRASH COINS THAT LOOKS LIKE THEY BEEN THROUGH WOOD CHIPPER! HERES $100000000!!".. IT COULD HAPPEN RIGHT?!?!! MIIRIGHT?!?!?! :D Also, do anyone of u guys know, if I just sell them all together on ebay as one package.. would I still make about 85$ / melt valute atleast?
