1952 Cuba 10 centavos for 50c
1966 Canada quarter (prooflike?) for 50c
then the guy took a couple bucks off the total because I bought a handful, so they were probably about 35c each. :)

I recently encountered a dealer that has a huge box with world coins, all in 2x2s, all priced at .10 to $1. I kind of considered that his "junk" box. Regardless, the ones I found were WELL under spot.

Bought two 1968 Canada quarters from a guy online, for 20c each. Price was good enough even if they were clad... but one was silver. :) They were included with a much larger order, so the shipping didn't eat up the profit.

These were both circulated, but not worn down. But I didn't know that, JW.

We should have a contest for highest AGW found in junk boxes in 2010. I am somewhere in the neighborhood of 1/3+ ounce with my four coins.

Maybe but try to move any quantity of them in the United States and I don't see you getting that value out of them.

I have several I found in junk boxes, from older UK coins to Indian coins. Don't remember exactly what they are, but all were 2 bucks or less.

Are you throwing that out?

Sunday I dug through a world coin junk box at the coin show. Got 27 coins for $2.50. Included was, at first glance, what seemed to be an old copper coin; I could see some details but not much. It had the date 1809 on the bottom of the reverse. I just put it in the keeper pile, and dropped it in my pocket when I bought them. Upon closer inspection, it had plenty of partial lettering, so it would be attributable if I could find something in the world coin books. I asked here at RealCent, posted a pic and overnight someone found it for me. What I found is an 1809 Bavaria (German States) 6 kreuzer, which is .333 fine silver, originally .0289 ASW. :) Over 200 years old, and a lot of that weight has been worn off, but still... I found... REALLY OLD SILVER IN THE JUNK BIN!!!

I am so envious of you folks who have junk bins you can go through.

All the ones I had in my area went away, or the prices were jacked up to the point of absurdity, and their isn't even anything cool anymore, nothing but plated steel crap from the Caribbean.

The 2 that are still around have taken the Cu coins out and are in separate bins now with even higher prices. There never was Ag in the junk bins in my area...

Congrats on everyone's finds so far...

Back in September, I pulled out about 100 silver foreign coins out of a dealer's Quarter bucket.

One of them sold for $75.00 on eBay. It was a 1875 Canadian 5 Cent piece.

I plan on visiting this dealer later this week, and will report whatever I find.

Yeah you guys are lucky to have junk coins available. Whenever I come across a vender at our fleamarket with a box of foreign coins, I'll buy him out and have ALWAYS come out at least 200% ahead selling on e-bay. I will report those finds here since. Don't have access to a resale coin dealer. I'm excited to read yall's good fortune.

I just finished looking up 390 foreign coins that I just bought for $95.00. I was pleasantly surprised to find some valuable coins.

The best coin is a 1871-K French 10 Centimes in uncirculated. It has a low mintage of only 27,000. It has a value of $650.00 in my 1996 Krause catalog!

There were about 40 other high grade French coins from the 19th century in this group, and they are priced between $10.00 and $175.00 in that 1996 catalog.

Another good find was a 1918 Norwegian 5 Ore. It is a Key date, and the catalog value starts at $175.00. However this coin has several problems. and probably is worth around $50.00.

There are several dozen silver coins too, but most are smaller coins like British 3 Pence. However, I did find a few larger silver coins, including two 1968 Mexican 25 Pesos in uncirculated condition.

I'll be busy listing some of these coins on eBay, and I probably will get a few thousand bucks for them.
