Hello foolazis: This seems a good place to pose this question: a face value ($1,000) bag of 90% silver coins (all pre 1964) weighing 56 pounds would contain how many ounces of silver? Would that be troy ounces or other? Just asking a foolish question.

56 pounds of 90% silver coins would contain about 50 pounds of silver - roughly 730 troy ounces. Here is a link to a pounds to troy ounces conversion table

1 troy ounce = 1.09714 ounces
