    That's a little over 20-1 but still okay

    Without checking I believe you're still under melt

    He is just above melt on the silver, barely. I hadn't checked the collectable value of the buffs and the pennies.

    I just checked and the melt for quarters and dimes is $22.45 plus a few cents for the wheats and maybe a 2-3 bucks for the buffalos.
    I'd say you did okay being you got some mercs out of it

    I'd say a good deal would be $10-15 to leave you some wiggle room profit-wise (or some 'meat on the bone' LOL thanks reality tv). You probably paid a few bucks under what you could get them on ebay for. my rule of thumb in terms of what I can sell for is $7 per quarter, $2.50-3 per dime, $1-2 per buffalo and the steel penny, and 3c apiece for wheats

    You probably paid close to melt but that 1941 STEEL penny might be worth you know just a couple thousand dollars

    Don't listen to them. It's not about the money. As Long as you're happy

    Words mean something, they asked us if it was a good deal and told us the total they paid. So the context was based on money after all.
