Default Silver question?

This is more than likely a dumb question. If one is buying for weight does it matter if they buy damaged coins? Most of the damage is scuffing and other of same kind of issue. Will this hurt when selling off? Sorry I am new to this, any help greatly appreciated.

Here is what I am talking about:

Silver is down to $17.64 troy oz now. It hasnt been that low since Sept 2010.I cant find anyone to sell me silver at close to spot right now so this is a great option just to be able to buy some silver while it's low right now. I dont know anyone who would treat these coins at anything above junk silver because the coins are not perfect.

Much more affordable silver out there then comm.'s.

Pm smackvay on here and ask him about his junk 90% silver. Much better option for when you are looking to sell.

Junk silver is junk silver...as long as there are no "chunks" of silver that are missing than buy whatever cheap silver you want to...as long as that is your goal.

wonder if there are any options where you can buy .999 junk silver and have it melted down and poured into bars or something.

My grandfather owned a gun store. He melted metals into bars and rods for ease of storage and use. A gunsmith or jeweler would probably do it for you.
