    I'm curious as to why you mentioned the 1972 halves. There is nothing special about them that I know of.

    Ya I know they are just worth 50 cents each, just listing what I got for the 20 bucks

    That's good advice and all when regarding Kennedy and maybe even Franklin halves, but with an old dollar coin from the 1800's he didn't "let the cat out of the bag" at all. The chances of the tellers receiving those coins again are slim to none. The teller may be clueless to silver years, but chances are she would have kept the coins as an oddity instead of letting them go for face value anyway, which would have led to her ending up at a coin dealer or pawn shop (gag) and getting 15-20 a coin anyway.

    I'm not sure if you've ever had this situation happen to you Buff Boy, but i know i would have done the same thing. For all you know he is holding a CC or in this case maybe the 1888 S key date ($100 coin i'm guessing). To each their own though.

    Went to the coin store and they offered 50 bucks for the 1888s. From my experience with this shop they normally tend to rip me off. Anyone know what this might be worth? He offered 350 total for the 18 coins

    Very nice find. I had a similar situation several years ago with Franklin halves.

    You should look up each coin below and then ebay them. Coin dealers don't necessarily rip you off, they just have to make money in the transaction as well. My advice is Ebay them.

    I personally wouldnt take less than $600. Unless you need the money don't sell them yet, silver is gonna go up. without better pictures i would say the 1888 s is worth at least $100.

    Edit: if you do need the money i would sell all but the 1888 S. It should increase in value over time as it is a key date.

    this is an impossible score in my area, every teller is a silver hawk, they take all the decant silver, seriously, they really do. Some don't know about 40% halves yet.

    jnb- First, congrats on being in the right place at the right time. You were rewarded for your efforts.

    Second, to get an idea of their worth post close-ups of each in the Coins section to get an idea on grading and value.

    Third, you can ebay the choice/select coins and group the common dates together as another lot. Or you can buy a Charter Membership on TNet and sell them in the Classifieds section without fees.
