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.

Sort:  

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. :-)
