    I should add too, 1 silver Ike has LESS silver than a 90% half dollar.

    Dang, if the front would've been nice, you probably could've sold it for several bucks; I think it was 1971's that brought a premium... something about all of the regular circulated ones all look crappy or something.

    I'm thinking 1 silver Ike should have the same amount of silver as 2 40% halves.

    Anything coin
    Ike Dollar 1971-1976 (40%) .3162 oz of silver

    Kennedy Half Dollar 1965-1970 (40%) .1479 oz of silver x 2 = 0.2958 oz of silver

    IOW the silver Ike is a better find.

    I bought a complete set of Ikes unc. in a folder at a coin auction 10 years ago, just above face. They couldn't get any bids, personally I like the coin.

    What does this even mean? Is english your primary language? I'm not sure if you meant for this to be an insult (and failed) or just don't know how to talk.

    By terrible is it scratched up, or just "worn out". It could be a greaser if it looks worn out.
    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.

    Why do you even bother talking? Your posts never yield any worthwhile contribution to the initial topic. While you may have hours upon hours to rack up your nearly 900 posts in 3 short months, this does not make you a valuable contributor. Please refrain from using the word "us" in reference to yourself and other board members....I have yet to see anyone quite as "special" as you appear to think you are.

    I personally think ordering the ikes would be a kool experience. Next time I place an order I will check into it!

    Maybe run over by a car, the tires would drag the coin across the ground, scratching up one side, causing some damage on eh other side, and no damage on the edge.

    We go from Talking Ike's to bit**ing at each other. I was interested in this thread and now every update is BS. If you want to argue start a new thread and title it appropriately so I don't bother reading it.

    Now-a-days, that is what the CRH forum is all about. Who can show off the most by belittling the next guy.

    When I started with the forum, it had been that way for a while. I've read many, many, old posts and it seems like it wasn't like that before. From my analysis, it started to be predominately that way early this year (Feb/Mar). I couldn't find a concrete reason for it, but it was almost like someone flipped a switch. Speculation is that the surge in PM prices brought the wrong kind of crowd into the hobby. Who knows.

    I would have loved to have been a part of the forum in the magnanimous days. It won't ever be like that again. It is so telling that 1 yr ago, there were dozens of active members with over 3yr of seniority. Now, there is a handful at most.

    Is there a list of years and what to look for in each year?
