    A friend of ours moved away years ago and left us with some of her stuff - videos and coins. I cashed the pennies in today and will use that to ship her the videos. The silver will be all that's left and I'm offering to sell that for her on line. Where's a good place to do that?

    There was $61 in pennies and I'm about to inventory the silver.

    Thanks

    Put them up on here. A lot of people on here have a little silver put away, and would like to add to the stack.

    You might suggest they hold on to it.

    Some coins have collector value because of their rarity or condition. If you have some that qualify you should get an appraisal before you sell them at current silver scrap value price.

    Friend of mine just bought a bunch at a gun show. Most gun guys also appreciate precious metals. Might try that.

    Coin Inventory looks to be a lot less silver than I had hoped. Sorry for the poorly named thread. Will list all anyway. Please correct me if I've got any of the silver coins mislabeled.

    Silver: Kennedy halves - 1964 (1), 1967 (2), 1968 (1); quarter 1964 (1)

    Dollar coins: Eisenhower - 1972 (1) 40% $9.50 each, 1976 (1); Susan B Anthony - 1979 (4), 1980 (1)

    Drummer Boy quarters - 1976 (129)

    Kennedy halves - 1968 (1), 1971 (13), 1972 (10), 1973 (1), 1974 (7), 1976 (17), 1977 (1), 1979 (3), 1982 (2)

    I didn't look very deep into the pennies. Seemed like regular pennies so I cashed them in.

    Nick - I'd appreciate it if you would send this on. Thanks. Joe

    Joe, unless I'm mistaken, anything after 1964 will not be of great silver content.....the '65-72 kennedys worth about $4.50 each, the 64 worth 11.50.. or so..

    BigM is right on the '64 cutoff. Anything after that date has little to no silver value.

    How's this for an interesting silver Nazi coin? My wife's father got it during the Second World War, and it's 62.5% silver and this is the first year of production (1936). This 2-Reichsmark coin was minted in Karlsruhe Germany during the Third Reich. It features an eagle on top of a swastika on one side and a bust of von Hindenberg on the other side. It even has a German phrase on the edge of the coin: "Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz" which roughly translates to "the good of the community comes before the good of the individual".

    The Ike dollars under 1976 are 40% silver. Worth about $9.50 each.

    Thanks Shannon. I'm taking notes.

    "the good of the community comes before the good of the individual" 50 million dead individuals later and a whooping by other threatened communities proves just how bad that concept can go.

    I was a paperboy in 1964 when they went from all silver to the clad type coins. Realizing that they might be worth something some day I started putting a few quarters and Mercury / Roosevelt dimes each week into a large mason jar and eventually filled it. Has some buffalo nickles and wheat pennies also. Still have them, plan to give to my daughter at some point.

    A friend told me that the pre 1964 quarters have a silver content value of $8 each. That was when silver was at $40 - $42 and ounce and it's dropped back since, but still surprising in value.

    "E Pluribus Unum describes an action: Many uniting into one. An accurate translation of the motto is "Out of many, one" – a phrase that elegantly captures the symbolism on the shield."

    Quoted from the above website.
