    I picked up another lot of change for face value for $45.
    Ended up with some silver:
    8 Ben Franklins
    16 Mercury dimes
    10 war nickels

    Hundreds more old wheat cents, hundreds of nickels and about a thousand more copper pre82 cents i havent gone through yet.

    I really like these face value lots but copper and nickel takes up alot of room.
    My pile of coffee cans is growing but there are some really old coins in this lot. Ill make room for it of course, no prob.

    Been looking for a backhoe for some time and finally found this old girl. She runs good just needs a new cutting edge for the bucket and some tlc.
    Unfortunately its an open cab and 2wd but i can use it 9 months of the year and ill keep my eyes open for something better that i can use for snow.

    Will likely do so in time but I probably won't even open their tube for at least another 12 months!

    I thought that.... after cracking the tube.
    It also stuffs up the dollar cost average, shipping etc. (Kinda, that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it!!)

    So if you buy 20 singles from the mint do they all come in capsules? Yet for the same price you get a tube of loose bars?

    You don't get the "volume Break" for 20 individuals that you do with a tube of 20, however the difference in 20 is minimal.

    I don't believe the single Dragons are capsulated, but are in a plastic sleeves.

    To many who invest long term and in bulk the intact sealed tube is the way to go.

    I bought the tube for the convenience of storage but will put some in a capsule for the mandatory "show and tell".:)

    @legbad, I think you've been looking in the bathroom mirror again.

    Just so you know I sent a PM to @goldpelican a little while back alerting him of your practice of using a VPN to hide your banned ISP. How do I know? You slipped up mate.

    It pays to get to know the local pawnbrokers ;)
    Except for crime-converts who are trying to get $999 for a $200 gold coin o_O
    They have been told by lots of people & I think the young girl at the counter is over it :p

    My daughter is sitting for some friends their 11 year old boy.
    She came out yesterday and he brought some coins gpa gave him and wanted to know what they were worth.
    I told him what they sell for and he about jumped out of his skin.
    He asked me if i wanted them and i said id have no probs giving him $30 each but the Eagles are too expensive for me and he said "DEAL!"
    We were both excited!

    25 "secondary market" generic rounds finally came today.
    Ended up getting 25 Buffalo Rounds so a little disappointing but the suspense was fun while it lasted hehe.
    Either way i should probably buy things i can part with easier but i already have a few tubes of these.

    Waiting on the 20 Peso Mexican gold now! Woop woop!

    Couldn't you apply a little patience, a file, and a good seat? :) And a good application of tlc. :)
