Huge LCS purchase

Coins | 1943penny

hey guys!
I usually stay away from gold and silver but when silver hit $19 I just had to go out and buy some silver. I also picked up some pretty cool coins! My LCS had cleared most of the coins away because of Covid-19 but he still had a decent amount of coins. I looked around a little bit and found an amazing coin! a 1916/16 buffalo nickel in F-12 condition! He let me hold it which was super cool!
here is the list of coins I bought;(5) aztec calendar coins 1 oz rounds(20) walking liberty half dollar(10) franklin half's(50) mercury dimes(2) 2020 "W" proof silver eagles1955 PF-67 NGC franklin half dollar
So, quite the pickups. I hope you enjoyed this blog I will include a few pictures!Thanks for reading!1943penny

Personally, I wouldn't buy silver when it is $19, I bought like $50 of silver when it was at $16, and sold it when it hit $18, and made a bit of profit.

Well.....I bought silver at $16 as well but......when I bought it at 19 i was predicting it would go up....and it did! almost 30 dollars an ounce....is that enough profit for you? ;)

Pretty cool? Are you into buying junk silver as a bullion option?

Very nice purchases. Exciting that silver may be on the move. Lets see if silver keeps rising !

I've got quite a few proof Franklin's with a star (*) grade. The clean and uncluttered obverse really makes for nice eye appeal on choice coins. What makes it even better is they really don't cost much more than an average proof in the same grade. Pre 1970 Kennedy's are also worth seeking out with star grades.

What is the star on the Franklin proof 67? I've seen it before but I don't know what it means.

The star (*) notes the coin has exceptional eye appeal.

Love those Walkers and the rest of your haul is awesome as well. Hope silver continues to climb, a rising tide lifts all collectors. (:

Wow, what a haul. I buy gold but mostly silver bullion coins every year when the new issues come out. I try to buy an ounce of gold a year and maybe as many as 10 ounces of silver. I like the coins because they are more collectible, but I don't see them really ever being worth much more than the market price at any given time with the exception of my old gold coins pre 1933. Mainly its my ultimate emergency fund, as a last resort after my two savings accounts. With modern gold bullion, I prefer Canadian as it is .9999 fine as opposed to gold eagles at .999 fine and the Canadian gold is less expensive to buy too. Enjoy your purchase, sounds like you got some good stuff.

I go Canadian gold as well for the same reason. I did get my wife a 2020 gold Buffalo the other day. It is .9999.

Very nice pickup! I’m debating going out and buying silver as well; I like to get war nickels for their content, as well as their cool history. Love it!
