junk silver - silver coins of circulated quality. Often used to describe bags or common United States silver coins that were pulled out of circulation when silver was disappearing. Does not mean the coins are damaged. Junk silver rolls or bags usually will not contain scarce dates, low mintages, or high quality coins. Often sold at reasonable prices for a small premium over silver content.
