    Depends if @johnmorris was quoting asw of coins or total weight of coins he didn't specify. Numbers are way out and your correct if it's total weight of coins.

    you are right @johnmorris has advertised wrong..
    it is total weight of coins and only about 170 coins.
    Unfortunately i will have to unbuzz that is a big difference of 50 coins for a guess

    I guess if it looks to good to be true then it probably is, oh well it's weird his numbers actually nearly matched the asw but lol. You are right it is total weight of coins and his approx coins of 220 is way out by about 50

    2.28 x 1000 = 2280 grams
    each fiddy is 13.28 grams

    2280 / 13.28 = 171.6867 coins , big difference :rolleyes:

    Must be worn too much???

    I think it's a fair unbuzz. The 220 approx advertised turned out to be 170. Appears to be an honest mistake by John, and Shawn thought he was buzzing around 220 coins.

    Edit to add: I deleted my previous comments to clear up the sales thread. I was discussing the total coin count with him and whether it was ASW, or gross weight. Shawn wasn't talking to himself ;)

    Gents.
    Yes, mass is correct, and yes, of coin total, silver of 50s is then 80%.
    Deal stands, $1900, postage by me.

    Seller definately needs to clarify it, with what is advertised the amount would need tobe closer to 220 than 170, thats for sure.
    Unbuzz is very official though lol, if its close to 220 as stated does the unbuzz puts him out of contention?, like walking out a que at the bank Lol

    Edit seller beat this post.
