all the silver was picked out, but there was enough brilliant 1971s - 1999s to make me suspicious this was the remnants of a collection dump.

I got nearly 80 2018s and found another $70. or so in 1998s. Anyone think these are worth setting aside and trying to sell/trade? it starts being an honest consideration of re monetizing them or keep them out and sell individually.

I had very limited experience in selling clad halves, but I can tell you I've sold around $60 face for a $10 premium before in a local sale. People starting coin collections may have most interest/desire to buy them. Or maybe they just have the least sense. Either way worth a shot at least locally.

Anything’s possible. I’ve had silver halves sit on Craigslist for weeks, I asked 70% of spot. One bite, sold.

Please don’t solicit me now for silver under spot.

Luck of the draw. Some just like quantity over quality :laughing7:

I've sold $100 in consecutive uncirculated modern $2 bills on there for a small premium.. several times. And they couldn't be happier to buy.

You're lucky you missed the solid boxes of 2018s last year, the PNW was flooded with them. All worth 50 cents, throw them back
