Hi,
Up for sale is an 1853 3 Cent Silver coin. The story is, at the time, the US Mint was producing coins with large silver and gold content. A Jewish community who wanted to hold onto the coins, realizing their precious metal value, minted and exchanged their own coins, which were still made of precious metals but were MUCH smaller.

This one is fairly rare, but there are others that go for thousands of dollars. For this one I'm asking (including shipping anywhere in the US-if you are international and wish to purchase, please PM me), which I think you'll agree is a fair price after doing some research.

Buy something new and rarely offered for sale for bitcoins-rare coins. Their value can only increase, as obviously there are no more being produced. In this case this one is made out of silver, so it has precious metal value as well. But another great thing about rare coins is that despite the price of precious metals they will always have numismatic value, and there will always be a collector willing to buy it at an ever-increasing price. This one, with the story behind it and its modest price, is a great one to start any collection.





Thanks!

Did you edit the price? Thought the price was lower.

the price is dynamically generated from the current BTC price. see the img's url: https://btcticker.appspot.com/mtgox/20usd.png

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
