Traded 40% for Proof Silver Dollars
I went to the new coin store. Round Em Up coins next to the rolls royce bentley dealer in las vegas. I traded 31 40% kennedy for $153.75. I bought a 2010 Proof Silver Eagle and a 1997 Proof Jackie Robinson for $70 and $55. Then I got 28.75 in cash.

I would fully embrace that coin shop, especially since they're paying a bit over spot for your 40% halves. Most excellent!

Most collectors don't even want 40% halves.
How did you get a retail store to pay you OVER spot for them

I didnt believe it when he said $153. I have been to some coin shops that gave me $4. Then the next time I come in they say $2 or $3. This last batch of 31 coins were the best condition 40% I had. I was going to save them before I saw the 2010 proof eagle.

Thanks for the post. I will go by in a few days and take a look at the store.

I went back with 17 40% in my pocket looking for something to buy. I saw the 1892 columbus. I wanted it because I saw it here and I dont have one. He said the 1892 is $19=7.3 40% JFK. So he said he would take 7 but thats $2.71 per coin. I walked out. I should just save the 40% and wait until silver goes way up and sell on craigslist.

R.I.P. Rich Hartford, You'll be missed.
man, nice deal! you traded a little over $15 face value for 2 collectable .999 silver coins, you can't go wrong there... this is what the hobby should be about- not always about the money...
congrats on the new purchase,

No picture with the vending machine? How much were the 1 gram bars? I'll have to go by when I have a chance to take a look.

1 gram pamp bars are going for like $85. You get a better per gram price if you go to 10g. Like $650. The gold eagle 1oz was like $1850. You can get better deals online.

The shop must have made a math error the first time.
Probably the last good deal you will get, especially if they ever discover the first goof,
(if that's what it was).
Keep on Rollin' !
