I've been wanting to sell my silver eagles and rounds and a few silver Kennedy's. But it's been so hard to pull the plug in doing so and worried that the toned coins would devalue the coins as a whole . Any advice on if the coins are eye appealing would they hold their value?

I want to sell because I have changed in what I want to collect! And honestly taking pics here is a pain , on a watch site just upload a pic as most other sites . I have no time to crop and down size the pics .
I think they will hold value if there is eye appeal. The pics in your listing would need to accurately depict that eye appeal for the most possible $$ One appealing aspect distorted or not showing in the pic will ruin the whole price point you expect. Or perhaps ruin the coin the buyer expects.
One way to gauge the market for your particular listing is post up with the buy it now price you'd like to receive. Maybe even 10-20$ over. And then accept offers. Don't need to actually accept offers just take the info as that's a price someone would pay for buy it now, right now. Can be sobering but also enlightening! Good luck!
Dealer will pay less than melt for the Kennedy's. No mater how nice. Maybe melt or slightly over for the SAEs if the are Unc. Maybe a little more for proofs. Ebay you will prob get melt for the Kennedy's and rounds. $35ish for UNC SAEs. But then you've got to subtract out ebay fees and shipping.
If you have over $1000 worth you could try JMBullion's "Sell to us online". I have used them once before and prob will again soon. You can see up to the second prices offered for most common stuff. They are at or near melt. Over for the SAEs. I think last I looked they were at around $33 for them.
You pay for shipping but they send you a UPS label at their rates. Which I found to be very reasonable.
You lock in price the moment you hit submit. And then have a certain amount of time to get the coins to them.
Thank you for all your responses ! But I think I will hold onto . I collect watches and clothing and I sold dozens just to give it away and now all the things that I've felt close to me I've should have never sold them . Silver is s up I will hold because I have a few BU coins but I have some beautiful toned coins and will not give them away.
