An Order of Silver

I recently placed an order for ~2oz of pre-1964 junk silver coins and they arrived today!

 Franklin Half: .36oz silver, or approx. $14.59 at today's spot value.
 Washington Quarter:  .18oz silver or approx $7.30 at today's spot value.
 Kennedy Half: .36oz silver, or approx. $14.59 at today's spot value.

For about $70 I got 3 Franklin halfs, 1 Kennedy Half, and 2 Washington Quarters.
What I love about having the junk coins instead of whole oz silver rounds or bars is that each coin seems to hold a practical value.  It is also convenient in how two quarters (in weight) make a half dollar, just as two half dollars make a whole Peace Dollar, or any other 90% silver dollar.
