1920-1947 Silver Coinage

Recommended Posts

I have been looking at what to do with 50% silver. Some coins have numismatic value but when talking in terms of kilo's who can be bothered searching or grading 50% coins?

Seems to me that feebay is the best avenue and as much as I dislike bending over to lose 13% there are no better options. Refiners do not seem to want 50% stuff but it still sells at near spot on feebay. Are guys refining it themselves? I have considered it but the assay costs put me off.

Any ideas for an exit? anyone want kilo's of 50% at spot?

at the present time forget about refining pre47, this is a non-starter. the only way this would become relevant was if the price got so high that it became economically feasible - much the same way as refining 9 carat gold is at present.

buying pre47has served you well for the reasons you stipulate, it trades close to spot and hence is another way of riding the silver bull. as regards an exit plan, if you want rid of them, break them down into a few kilo lots and sell on ebay letting the buyers/viewers know you have more to sell privately. offering them here at spot will not get you a sale when someone can buy a kilo on ebay, pay via paypal and be insured.

i would also add that (imo) we will see the numismatic premium on pre47 coins move up over the next few decades to reflect the fact that they are finite and this is what has happened with pre 1920.
