Pre-1965 35% Silver coins, sometimes referred to as junk Silver or scrap Silver, are a great way to start your Silver investments.

The public saved them for their 35% Silver content as a rainy day fund they can fall back on.

Exactly as expected except one thing

By  Anthony

from SC

4.0

Got my $1 war nickels today. I got a good mix of primarily Philadelphia mint but also a few San Francisco mints. A few were pretty worn but honestly I expected that. One thing I didnt expect though was to get a random 1957 Denver nickel in there. Now, I like old coins but it wasnt even in good shape and definitely about 12 years too late to be a war nickel. Im willing to chalk it up as an accident. Im sure Apmex will make it right.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Cheapest Silver on the Planet

By  Petros

If you are looking for the dirt-cheapest way to buy Silver, this is it! These 20-coin half rolls are offered at a significantly lower price than can be found from sellers on eBay. It is basically buying Silver at a tiny fraction over Spot Price, and getting fractional Silver (which ALWAYS carries a significant premium OVER Spot) at the same time. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I recommend also getting the square nickel coin rolls APMEX sells to store these.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design

Great Junk silver

By  John

On average, i paid per coin what they are worth...so the cost is pretty accurate for what it is worth. I received in my roll one G state and one XF range. The rest appeared to be VG, F, and VF ranges. (these are my opinions, not professional grades). Great mix of coins in the roll, mainly P mint, but a few D and S mint also. Happy with the purchase.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell

I'm not really a fan of junk silver, but for junk silver these coins came in relatively good condition. Also the I when I bought these I got a absolute steal on the price. I'm happy with my purchase, and I would recommend to another person

Better than I expected

By  Jerrod A.

from Walnut Creek, CA

5.0

After reading some reviews, I expected the condition to be pretty bad. I didn't think I'd be able to read years, recognize a face... I was worried the wear was so bad that I'd be losing some ounces off the weight. I was buying only for bullion (so perhaps the complainers were hoping for numismatic value and to get some shiny, like new ones) but I was pleasantly surprised! For my purpose (stacking that silver) they were perfect. I ordered more and found myself refreshing the tracking page every few minutes, as if that'll make them get here any faster.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Poor Condition

KEY WORDS - "Circulated War Nickels" !!!!

By  Sandbagger

from somewhere in Maine

PEOPLE, Stop complaining that your "Circulated 70+ yr old War Nickels" are dirty, worn and don't look like the photograph! Seriously, some of the complaints I read sound like they were written by a 1st grader. I agree, not all of the 160 War Nickels I've purchased look like the ones in the photograph, but a few did! STOP your whining, they are 70 year old CIRCULATED "War Nickels"! That means they've been in circulation, peoples pockets, change jars, cash registers, etc.. They are known as "junk silver coins" and NOT advertised as "Collectible" War Nickels. If your buying these nickels thinking you'll find a nice collectible one, YOUR NOT READING the description. These are great to have for their Silver content, plus it's nice to hold something in your hand that has a bit of our American History attached to it. A great way to diversify your Silver holdings in the event we ever need to "barter" with our Silver when the idiots in Washington collapse our economy! Gold & Silver have been used for millennia between people as a means of currency and these War Nickels are a great way to trade since most of the unknowing population trust the government. Some people may be more willing to trade goods for government Silver coins than Silver bullion so make sure you have a few of these on hand just in case. So what's the worst that can happen if the economy doesn't collapse?, you wait until Silver goes up, sell them for a profit and buy yourself a Maserati... :)

Pleased

Bought 60 of these nickels to go with the 200 buffalo's in my 1934 Mills Castle Front slot machine. This slot was in use in a private club until after the "Big War". Now it is really authentic. The coins were of average circulation in various conditions......I cleaned em up in detergent in an ultrasonic tank, and yes, even polished some of the faces, now they look just fine in the jack pot windows intermingled with Chief Red Cloud and his food supply.

All DARK coins! Buyer BEWARE

These coins do NOT look anything close to what is pictured. If you want shiny silver I would look elsewhere. These are dark coins. I believe Apmex should picture the ACTUAL condition of the product you will receive.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)
  • Hard to Sell
  • Poor Condition
