Unbelievable score at coin show

Coins | user_9894

Went to coin show Jan 7th and scored 5 uncirculated Ike dollars (in blue envelope) for $5 per. I asked twice if that was the price and he answered yes. Wow! 1971S 40% silver.

Thanks for the reply, I try to browse each table, look at more than what I have on my list. It is fun to hear the dealers stories and to see everyone having fun.

Nice pick up. Just in my opinion, and I could be wrong., I would have asked instead "How about all 5 for $20.00?" All he can say is no. It's fun to deal and is kind of expected at the shows. I've had many dealers say "Just take off x amount of the asking price." Never the less well done!!!

Congratulations! It's nice when you're surprised by a lower than expected price!
