RE: The Silver Penny Project: SLVP on the RISE! Great STEEM shelter!

Upvoted and resteemed. I never understood why they call it junk silver when in fact it isn't "junk." Silver is silver no matter what! Junk belongs in the trash.


Well, you have to remember that U.S. silver quarters are not pure silver, they're 90% silver and 10% copper.

Yes, each quarter is 0.1808 troy oz pure silver (90%) with the balance (10%) copper.

I agree, it shouldn't be called "junk", maybe it's camouflage for it's true value. :-)
