I bought a privateer (1st round) for $37 and got 7 more ounces for $70 more (including a 1985 Engelhard prospector). I bought a gold 1947 dos pesos too (25k mintage).

Then, I won a free Morgan dollar.

It was a blessed day! ;)

Not the brag of the century but I wanted to share it mostly because I want to bring this great thread back to life. I was lucky enough to receive a 10% off offer from eBay with a max discount of $100 and it's good for ANYTHING. BPM already already had a sale for 2012 1 kilo koalas for $525 with free shipping! With another 10% off, I picked it up for just under $475, getting my credit card miles at the same time! Not the biggest score ever but paying spot for one of the lowest mintage coins in the series is not too bad :thumbup:

An 1885 Morgan
A 1924 Peace
and a 1999 Eagle.

I know this a silver post but I like showing off my 1927 Quarter Eagle Also.

Nice score walkabout.. I get so ticked off looking at all these bars that local coin shops have for all you good members. I go to a coin shop 60 miles from my home town if I ask about a bar they give me directions to Applebees

Went to BiMart today and when the young man opened his till I noticed he had some halves. I bought two 40%ers for a buck. Not big but it shows it is still out there. :clap:

Good score. Interestingly enough, I just picked up a 1968 AU Kennedy for 50 cents at my local WF Bank yesterday! My first silver half from a teller at the bank in a VERY long time :) Not the a find of the century or anything but made me smile all the way home!

North or South?

South may have all the money to support a nice bar shop! We really need a bullion specialty shop somewhere in the South, too many coin shops. I'd think you could make a killing as a niche/novelty.

Here is an Israel set that I really didn't think I'd win as I put in a low-ball bid at an auction. There 2.3 or 2.4oz each. Don't have the paper work and COA in front of me. .999 Proofs and are really nice pieces of work. Kind of reminds me of Medallic Art in NY. Put in an absentee bid and won it.

Sometimes it works in your favor :D
