    The crazy thing is that this guy has sold several lots of boxes just like that with $100 profit on each one. I too have seen the unsearched roll adds that people pay $20 or more for. Then you read their feedback and people complain "Hey there was no silver!!" Funny, sad and true.

    I can't believe people are dumb enough to bid on something like that...

    $20 for shipping, i figured it would cost a lot more than that.

    Coin roll hunting

    Re: More shenanigans... Lol

    When I first saw those auctions and people actually buy, I sold several rolls of halves from one of my boxes. One went for 17.99 buy it now with 3.95 shipping and another went for 19.50 auction were 3 people kept bidding each other up...same shipping. My buddy who owns a ups store shipped em out for me for cheap, and we got a quick lunch on the fools who bought.

    A few weeks later i got feedback, buy it now found nothing, the auction one found a 40%....good for them i guess

    Gee,

    But what if you find pennies, nickels, dimes, vapor, etc...in the rolls counted as halves?

    Thank God for stupid people

    after ebay and paypal fees he will only end up making $25 dollars on the box. And i highly doubt it only costs $20 to ship that so he may end up with even less. Not worth it.

    If one can stomach all the bad feedback.. by all means go ahead.

    I thought that the yellow box with black/white rolls were interesting. I've gotten those style boxes only twice. One was a skunk and the other had a 90%er and a 40%er. I just remember it because I don't often get boxes like that. Given those stats, you have a keeper per box ratio which isn't bad. LOL

    Read the neutrals.. I recall a good amount as concerning those. I've read neutral to negative feedbacks of other sellers of unsearched halves rolls and a lot of the complaints were on those items. Go Figure. People can put negative comments about the seller on a neutral rating. In fact, one can pretty much call any seller anything on Feebay feedback and they will not take it away.

    I would not be buying unsearched halves rolls from the west coast. Northeast perhaps.

    Whats funny is that they are paying ebay $60 in fees for EACH box they sell, barely a profit to be made...
