    I got my health
    My John B. Stetson
    Got me a bottle full o' Baby's Blue Bird Wine
    And I left my stash somewhere down in Preston
    Along with thirteen silver dollars

    And my mind . . . . . .

    I’m familiar with the song, I’m sorry I was trying to determine if you were selling or just telling cause I’m always looking out for them big dollars. No offense meant, I guess I misunderstood your intent.

    No offense taken / none detected. Some of these have numismatic value above the scrap silver content. I need to separate those out to pique the interest of the numi guys. I'll move these soomer or later. Did you need any? I thought you picked up a bunch when Karl was selling his.

    PM me and let me know what you would be looking for. I'm sure we could find something in this pile of Ag.

    I believe Brother Bender mined that shaft before I was able to greedily grab Karl’s treasure trove. I’ll pm you when this medicine wears off a little, I’m high as a freaking cloud right now.

    I really like that seated Liberty dollar, it presents well. Nice Trade dollar too. Bob made me a set of grips with the eagle from the 1860 style, inlaid brass badges on burled blue maple.

    Did the Colts you listed in PM all sell? Or is there still an open option?

    Been selling stuff locally that I don't have to ship.
    Had to say goodbye to both of the CZ's, the Colt Delta Elite, the COP 4-barrel hand punisher, and the Brown's. Had a guy local that wanted both Brown's and the COP. Made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

    Regrets.

    I collected silver coins as a kid. Plenty of coins from the pre 1945 era were available.

    then I spent them and that was the end of my collecting.

    kids do stupid things sometimes :)

    Pack that pouch up with current circulation dollar coins and you'd have forty bucks at hand. I keep dollar coins loose in the car because they spend better than quarters these days, and they don't fly out the window like paper money would.

    We should follow Canada's lead and lose the singles (dollars and pennies). Loonies and Twonies!

    My brother just found our penny collection. We gathered them from circulation back in the early 60s. Little or no numismatic value, but the associated memories are beyond price.

    Been there, done that. My grandmother owned a hotel from the 1930's to 1960's in the small Arkansas town we grew up in. She collected silver dollars that passed from her customers. Later she gave the collection to my brother and I. Those silver dollars slowly and magically disappeared over the years of our youth. Earlier years they bought bicycles, and toys, later years they were spent on car gas, girls and illegal beverages. Youth is wasted on the young.;)

    I opened just ONE of the storage bins last night. I was up until past midnight reacquainting myself with what's in there. Lots of stuff I collected or bought bulk when silver was in the toilet (mid '80's). Lots of stuff left to me by my Dad and Grandmother (who was a silver dollar junkie at the casinos back in the day).

    I was hoping I would find that ONE rare item in the bulk silver bags when I was a kid. Probably spent hundreds of hours looking through them, putting a good percentage in those little 2x2 cardboard holders, and writing dates, grades, etc. on the outsides.

    What a waste of time.

    I'd be interested in purchasing anything from 1905 and 1919 if you have any of those.
    Always been a hobo nickel guy myself.
    So if you happen to have any of those I'd like to take a look.

    Silver dollars, or something else? I lose my train of thought easily.

    Agent,

    I dug through my boxes last night and tonight looking for something matching from both 1905 and 1919.

    That was a tough time in history for currency. The Edwardian era then into WWI. That time period also crosses over a couple of design changes in our nation's coinage.

    Indian Head Cents became Lincoln Cents. Liberty Nickels became Buffalo Nickels. Barber Dimes, Quarters, and Halfs became Mercury, Standing Liberty, and Walking Liberty's.

    With each design change, the earlier coins tend to disappear. The only coin design that remained constant between 1905 and 1919 was the Morgan Silver Dollar. Unfortunately, there were none produced between the years 1905 and 1920.

    The only pair that I have are the pennies - a 1905 Indian Head Cent and a 1919 Indian Head Cent.

    I've got one more place to look, but I'm not hopeful of finding anything else. With all the other denominations, one year or the other saw significantly lower mintages.
