The thrill of the Local Coin Shop finds never ends. I, mostly, lean toward the low-end items, as close to spot price as possible. I found these beauties in the junk-box. The owner explained that the .999 Silver content was compromised by the Gold gilded "improvement, enhancement." Somebody paid good money and time, to a skilled worker/artist, to improve these American Silver Eagles. They are also tougher date ASEs. The price was $20(USD), each, or almost $5 under the common date, BU Eagles, sitting right next to them. There may be better ways of stacking, but this is one of my favorite ways. They may now be .998 but they are .999 underneath the Gold "contamination." It makes sense but go figure. Thanks for looking and keep stacking.
I am more entertained going to the Local Coin Shop, than going to the Local Movie Theater
