I hand him $20, take 6 coins, and told him to find a dealer for the rest of them(there are several there at the same swap meet)

I don't normally buy silver like this, I'll have to admit it felt kinda dirty. One has to wonder how all this stuff ends up at swap meets. There is definitely honest hardworking vendors there, but some shady characters and goods too.


Don't feel bad, you paid the asking price.
Let us know if they check out silver and don't stick to a magnet.


They were real. I sold 5 of them to an LCS about an hour later. Kept one as a momento :)

Today: 2017 Kook Roo, 2018 Kook, paid 20 each, plus tax, ehh. Should have bought a gram of gold instead. Over the last few weeks I've picked up a few engelhard prospectors and bars, and found 14 of the old El-11 engelhard bars at LCS, supposedly less than 25,000 minted.

I got my socks blessed off today. A family member decided to give me (like for free) 39 raw Morgans with a variety of dates. About 15 of them are nice and shiny. I guess that was a pretty good score, huh?

Hang out here and you'll get some hookups that you won't believe are possible...there are plenty of people on here that used this joint as their own LCS...between the BST, group buys, hot deals and whatever else...you'll be broke soon enough, or have way more stuff than you imagined you'd have and still want to pick up more...it's just kind of the way it is...dig in and you'll find what you want and more..way more

On Memorial Day there was a one day only 20% off everything coupon on eBay, which of course did not include coins/money/bullion. I stumbled upon a piece of HACMint poured silver that was listed under Jewelry & Watches > Precious Metals without Stones so the 20% coupon worked. It also qualified for the standard 1% eBucks rebate. Poking around a bit I found a couple more HAC pieces listed under Entertainment Memorabilia that were eligible and ended up getting 3 pieces of poured .999 for $18.79 per oz. Not anything to brag about really but I was stoked.
