    more 10 / buck "scrap" box finds & 3.50 for 10 & 20 centavo 1915 silver cuban

    well I spent 4.50 today -- 3.50 of it was on two cuban small silvers the 10 and 20 centavo from 1915 -- scored the 1 centavo in the 10 for a buck box -- so I know have the 1,2,5,10,and 20 centavo set from the "first year" cuba was a "independent country" set cost so far $3.80 --(the 10 & 20 centavo are 90% silver)-- I saw a 1,2 and 5 set for 19.95 on eE BAY so guess I'm ahead -- I'm still looking for the 40 centavo and 1 peso (both marked 900M or 90% silver) to complete the set -- the other 9 "cherries" that I picked today were british (queen victoria)-- (2) farthing coins --one 1888 "young head"--one 1897 "old head"-- a 1901"old head" half penny in good shape-- french -- a bit worn 1855 -- 5 centimes Napoleon II of France --(last emperor & first president)--a rather nice --1898 2 heller coin from the Austrain Empire (ceased to exist after WW1)--- Germany--a 1887 german 1 pfenning & 1875 5 pfennig from the (william I era) --a very nice 1899 10 pfenning ("kaiser " william II era -- the last german emperor) and last but not least a nice 1905 United States of America / Filipinas-- one centavo in nice shape-- not big time coins by many folks "standards" but kind of neat old coins with a bit of history with em -- Ivan

    Man, your making out like a bandit on that ten for a buck box. Keep it up and you'll have that set finished in no time. Have you been out MDing any since you started going thru that box?
    HH Ivan and good luck on finding those last two coins you need.

    I love looking through those bins. Now a days they are picked over... sounds like you have a decent stash to pick from.

    theres not too much left in that shops "junk box" after my raiding it twice -- I got most of the good stuff from the box , some of it was "buried" under a lot of modern "clunker" coins -- I like "poking" around in them because you never know what interesting little tidbit might "pop" up --- by the way whats your best junk box find? ---Ivan

    sweet i love those boxs too find many 1800's and early 1900 coins some times they mess up and leave some really good stuff in there .

    i went to a flea market and 10 for a dollar misc coin box and bought an 1963 if i remember correctly canadian 25 cent piece lol .

    face value 25 sent hmm i dont think the guy was thinking plus it was atleast part silver too .

    always worth looking in those things
