Hi Ho Silver

Yesterday we were going through a storage unit which we purchased at auction on the 23ed of February. We found a tin with some change in it (coins). Thinking it was just pocket change like we normally find in storage units we just tossed the tin in a small box to bring home. After supper we opened the tin to count the change, 48 dimes, 27 quarters and 2 half dollar coins. All these coins were dated in or before 1964. We had silver in our hands. We removed three Mercury Dimes from the batch to save for ourselves.

Today we took the coins to our special metals buyer. The face value of the coins we took him was $12.25 in return he gave up $200. Not a bad find from a $250 storage unit.
