My wife and I have been doing some 20 year cleaning.
the kind that you dig deep into things you just put aside year after year.
She bunched together alot of jewerly, like earings unpaired, broken, and other broken pieces, things laying around for 30-40 years.Kinda stuff you aint never gonna wear, but didnt give it away.
I was going through the boxes of paperwork and supplies I brought home from my store,(figured its time, its 8 months) everything was packed tight and before I shoved them all into storage, Idecided to go through each plastic pin to make sure nothing is in there I might need within the next year or so.
I found an old small cardboard box, it was when I first started working in my store, I used to pull all the silver coins out of the register each night and I dumped them into this box. Ofcourse, no more silve came in during the 80s, so I shoved the box into a drawer and forgot about it.
Today, I went to a reputable dealer near me, and I was shocked we got nearly 1000 bucks for that old junkie jewerly.
And I got a bit shy under 1400 bucks for all the silver coins
Really pays to go through the stuff just laying around.
I have a bunch of silver dollars dating back to the 1800s, but he told me I should go to a coin dealer as those may have value up and above the price of silver alone.
If I didnt just get the new router, Id be tempted to go out and buy a tool today.
