    Box of enders, to sell on ebay or open?

    Over the past few months I have saved enough enders to fill a box, they consist of 2 Walkers, 6 Bens, 4-64' Kens and the rest are all 40% with obverse showing. I was going to sell them on FeeBay, I usually sell single coins with a .99 starting bid and no reserve but for this box I would probably go $500 opening bid with a $800-$1000 reserve. BUT I have had health issues over the last several weeks and have not been able to do any CRHing so I really want to feed my addiction and find silver. The money from the sale would be nice if the bidding goes high, but finding silver is a blast. So to sell or open?
    Thanks Fellow CRHer's and HH

    I would think you could get more by selling each roll individually. personally i would think there a lot more people willing to bid and pay $15-$20 per roll depending on whats on the end, then $500-$600 for a box, and you would probably give one lucky baller a killer deal on a loaded box. Good luck

    I personally would open them. For starters not knowing what was in them would drive me nuts. You also run the risk of getting a bunch of negative feedback if you sell them individually. If there are more silvers in each roll you could end up losing money by selling vs opening.

    I've had a lot of Enders that give up no other silver. I've also had good boxes where the ender rolls all gave up 4-6 silvers each. You could weigh the rolls but then you are being deceptive. I would just open them personally

    You've found 50 enders ....42 of which were obv Ken enders.....just in the last few months? That must mean you've had some rev Ken enders too during the last few months too that u haven't included in the ender box you have now. You must get some great boxes or do a lot of volume or both. Congrats on all the great finds.

    I assume most people who sell silver rolls like that on ebay usually weigh them to try and determine how much silver is in each roll but if your not going to do that I wouldn't want to make a gamble on what else might be in there so I'd open them. Also I wouldn't sell silver at such low prices now unless u really need the money or are just hell bent on selling regardless.

    Also, like u said "finding silver is a blast" so who knows how much more silver u might find in each roll. It seems to me it would be such a blast sitting down and opening all those ender rolls you've been saving. So if u sold them u would be depriving yourself of the fun u enjoy Crhing.

    Btw, I bought one of those silver mystery rolls on ebay last year. It was a half dollar bank type roll but it was obvious from the pics that the roll had been tampered with and opened. The description of the auction said all the coins were silver - 1970 and earlier - in AU or better condition. So I assumed they were all just nice condition 40% halves - which they were. I don't usually like to gamble on buying mystery rolls like this because I figure most of the time I will be overpaying and the seller wins - that's usually why they are selling in the first place. But I paid less than melt at the time for this roll of all AU/UNC 40% silver coins so I was happy (pics below).

    Whatever u decide, good luck and H$H!

    Good points SilverFace, yeah, before I fell ill I was doing pretty big volume. At first I was saving silver reverse enders "in the box" but for the eBay sale I wanted to be able to guarantee silver in every roll and that no roll was altered in any way, thought that would bring in good bids. So I opened all the reverse Ken ender rolls and replaced them with obverse rolls as I found them.
    Good Luck and HH to you too.

    Agme, don't forget about what it takes to ship these as you sell these individually. Not so much the postage, but the back and forth to the post office. If you're not well enough to pick up boxes, the back and forth to the post office wouldn't be easy.

    Also, I've bought some of the shotgun wrapped halves on eBay and and did ok, but that seller had a lot of people by these rolls expecting to get rich off them. He got a lot of neg feedback and not sure what your selling volume is but could really hurt your rating like fish on said.

    Either way you go, feel better, get better. And if you do crack em open, let us know what you find!

    Good Points Z, I have 100% positive feedback on the Flea and want to keep it that way.

    And Thank You for the good will wishes!
    And If I crack them (And I'm leaning toward that) I will let you guys know how it goes.

    Not Nice at all.

    "The problem is you can not sell counterfeit merchandise on eBay. After looking at some of the crimps zoomed in on your pictures, it is my opinion that you've rerolled them. I am probably right as I've seen it all."
