Pricing Silver Coins Online - Pre-1964 Dimes/Quarters
« on: August 08, 2012, 12:23:22 PM »
What is the best way to price pre-1964 coins for purchase online?

Ebay is commonly sited as a good choice but how to do I index a sellers pricing (including shipping) versus reputable silver merchandising sites?

After some consideration I've decided the pre-1964 dimes will be my first investment.  I understand the distinction that spot price is never a coined price.  However for me the options online for purchase seem too various to determine the best market price. 

Can anyone simplify? and/or recommend specific merchandisers for pre-1964 silver dimes?

Thanks

GoldmastersUSA has their buying and selling prices continuously updated on their website.  I've never done business with them, so I can't recommend or dis-recommmend them, but they're a convenient source of price info.

My go-to source for pre-64 coins is www.providentmetals.com

Bought lots from them, and very easy to navigate website.

You can go to http://www.coinflation.com/coin_calculators.html and put in dimes or quarters and see what they are currently worth.

I price on apmex and for small quantities (few rolls) of dimes I buy on ebay. Just had a good transaction with a seller named 'emuddbay' on a couple of rolls of dimes. I opened the rolls. checked them all. All very good condition. Fast shipping. Cheaper than apmex and easier to deal with (apmex charges a premium for credit card so I usually do check which slows things down).

I use Provident also. Placed an order Fri and received it Yesterday.
Only paid by check once to see how long it would take. Check cleared bank at 10 days and order arrived in 14 days. :)
