Blanks are very popular. But, buyer beware. Many of the blanks selling on eBay are of foreign origin. The Mexican 50 Pesos is a good example as it resembles a USA half dollar. These are being marketed as 90% silver blanks. Another thing to watch for are US silver dollar blanks. The ones being offered may actually be blanks intended for bullion. Buyers must ask questions prior to purchasing. Ask the seller for edge descriptions. Also, weight.
