Oh man, were these the days... dang covid plunged silver to $12, then rose to almost $30... I wish I had used that to my advantage, but was feeling unwell and was in quarentine.... Covid sure is a boy scout.....

There bidding the 2020 eagle since the series will stop. Changes in obverse for counterfeiting and the reverse all new.

You know what? It's actually a sorta good thing, the difference between the most value and coin value, because it shows that coins are more than their alloy content

I'm not into melt prices. I collect for the beauty of rarity of the coin. If I was I would just buy Ten Ounce bars and stack them. Thanks for the information . I hope that day doesn't come think of the beauty and history that will be lost. Besides I'm not up on the laws concerning melting our coinage. Thanks again.

Thanks for all the information. I don't want to have to sell my silver for melt that's for sure!

I hope I never get to the point I need to sell my collection for melt value. Thanks.

Thanks for the info

It's Mokie

Of course if you weigh an average circulated Barber Dime and an average circulated Roosevelt Dime, you will most probably have a weight discrepancy since the average circulated Barber Dime will be no better than Good Condition and the Roosevelt Dime will probably average Very Fine. I doubt if your average coin dealer is that precise though.
