For all of you wondering about silver content, just check out: coinflation.com

I've been shorted before though. Worst one through a coin cointing machine was $12. That was annoying. I think I dumped too many coins at once and overwhelmed the machine. Lesson learned.

Dimes, Quarters, Halves, and Dollars 1964 and before are 90% silver. ^^^^^
War nickels (1942-1945) are 35% silver. ^^

They only made Franklin Halves from 1948-1963.
A 1965 Half would be a Kennedy silver clad (40%).

I guess I could push for one last order before the door completely closes.

Let's hope they knock out 100M Reagan Dollars and give us a reprieve.

In a couple of years, we'll have to think of how to differentiate the different Ikes.

I have been through about 4500 Ikes in the last year or so and found only two silvers (40%). Not worth the effort. Silver Ikes didn't circulate, so they only appear if someone broke open a mint set and dumped it into circulation, which no rational person would do intentionally.

If I already ordered the coins before they were "sold out" am I fine or should I cancel?

UPS guy came and knocked one softly then left. From experience do they normally come back and try one more time the same day or will it be the next day?

Did he leave a paper on your door? If not, he might be coming back later that day. Luckily, this never happens to me since I live in a community and if I'm not there it goes to the main office which is better than not receiving it that day or having it left outside...

What status is your order in?

If you're In Process I think you still have a good chance of getting them.
If you're On Hold I'd be more worried.

YMMV.

Hopefully the Reagans make it in the direct ship program, if the program is still around then. Hopefully Jackie Speier's plans don't go through before the Reagan coin is minted, that is one dollar coin I would like to have in my collection.
