    How much have you paid per ounce?

    For all the coins you have searched (lets make it easy and say this year so far) how much have you paid per ounce of silver? I did some quick math on what I paid and the number I came up with is $2.19 per ounce of silver for 2012. I looked at a historical price chart and that was the price of an ounce of silver in 1973, kinda cool.

    I think this is the break down of ounces for each coin (correct me if I'm wrong):

    40% ikes 0.3164
    90% halves 0.3617
    40% halves 0.1479
    silver quarters 0.1808
    silver dimes 0.0723
    war nickels 0.0563

    Figuring in gasoline burned in my vehicle from CRH activities, wear-and-tear on that vehicle, and my time spent CRHing, I figure I have paid at least $50 per ounce.

    I'll have to agree with ArkieBassMan, after wear 'n tear, gas @ 15 mpg, about $40-$50 an oz.

    I would think around 3 per ounce..broken down among gas, pizza, doughnuts etc..
    Goal for 2012:

    HALF DOLLAR
    40% = 400
    90% = 100

    Walker = 10
    Ben = 10

    DIME
    Merc = 10
    90% = 50

    NICKEL
    Buff = 10
    War = 10

    I value my time in the neighborhood of $10,000/hour, and I use my Black Hawk helicopter to travel from bank to bank...

    Figuring in the maintenance on the black hawk I suppose I am paying about $150K-$200K/OZ give or take.

    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    We are talking about total ounces, not necessarily from one ounce coins.
