Annual end of year clad for silver exchange !

Every January I head to the coin star machine to exchange my Explorer dug clad coins, nickels and pennies found during the previous year. I had a poor year digging clad with only $64.00 l but I was able to boost my totals by including the proceeds by selling two dug Albany, NY dog tax tokens (1898 & 1905) on eBay for $91.00. My total of $155.00 bought me a 5 ounce silver bar and three one ounce American Silver eagles. Sure looks nicer than a pile of crusty coins and two beat dog tags !

Tony is probably suffering from depression now that the ground is frozen. Send him another PM. He probably didn't see it !N/T

When you are out digging for silver you don't get much clad. Very good idea and terrific pick ups!

Back when gold was about $400.00 an ounce, I put together a nice set of gold coins. Now it takes too long to save up for gold. Silver looks just as nice to me !

For that reason, I purposely hit a couple of spots at years end I know are full of clad. I don't find that much clad when I'm out looking for the old silver coins either.
