My main focus is on 90% silver US coins. I also save to buy rolls of Silver Eagles once in a blue moon. I am trying to get rid of all of my generic silver for stuff that is recognizable as money. I also sort pennies and save all nickels. My take is, if you are going to just buy groceries, what cashier is going to sit there and figure the value and authenticity of some generic piece of silver? Currency silver is unlikely to be counterfeit (small gain, high risk of getting caught) and all they have to do is look at the date, look at the edge, swipe it over a magnet, and maybe let it fall on the counter to hear how it sounds.
Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.
