I just got four pure silver liberty bell dollars.
When my grandma got dimentia and we moved her into a retirement home we cleaned out her house and found a box that had four coin collecting box's filled with 20 pure liberty bell one ounce silver dollars each. It also had some gold coins and other silver and gold knick knacks.

I asked my dad to see them today and he said I could have a few if I wanted so he gave me four.
They are an inch and a half in diameter and twice as thick as my half dollars so they do , of course, handle differently. They are in mint condition and very pretty. Like, i can see my face in them pretty. I still think i'm going to buy some eisenhower dollars though because i think they're thinner. But these are still pretty sweet.
I'll post a few pictures of the coins in a little bit.

Here are a couple pictures of the four of them compared to the size of a half dollar.

And here is one of the back

And here are two from the front and back in my hand.

I know they are not very good quality pictures because it's not a very good quality camera. But the coins themself are very pretty.

A guy I used to work with gave a box full of old coins to another co worker. I sure wish I could have seen what was in that box or even be the one he gave it to. I will bet it had some walking liberties and some morgan dollars in it.
