I was thinking about mentioning to my neighbors that instead of $1-$2 dollars for a dozen I would be happy accept a lesser amount if they gave me pre-1965 coins (which have silver in them). Question is what amount of coins is a good trade value? On a side note I am frustrated that our country decided to start making coins with no actual value.Why did they do this?I have to research it. It frustrates me to realise that the money we use really has no value at all-only that which we give it. It is just monopoly play money!Now we are getting to the point where you often don't even see the *play* money. Your check gets deposited into a bank by work,and you pay your bills online or by check.You never actually have any of it in your hands. I wish I had known when I was young about the silver in coins. I would have started saving the REAL money long ago. So anyway....what would you charge in pre-1965 coinage for a dozen eggs? I suppose it will vary since the cost of eggs will vary in each location....or maybe it won't when you are trading in silver??? I don't know what to ask for.
