All I know is pre 1965 dimes and quarters. I didn't read anything about nickles or dollars or whatnot. Anyone have any experience with these already?

This is good info. You seem to know a lot about coins.I do I have a lot of silver coins, you are right with dimes and quarters pre 65, so 64 and older are all 90% silver
Half dollars were 90% silver from 64 and older, but were 40%silver from 65-70.
Silver dollars from 35 and earlier are 90% silver.
There were only a few years of "war" nickels that were silver from 1942-1945. During the war they did this because they used the copper for ammo.
They also made Steel Cents for a year or two if I'm not mistaken.
If you are buying silver coins from ebay, make sure that you check out the website coinflation.com they have silver calculators. 1oz of silver is NOT the same as 1 Troy ounce. It is actually less than a Troy ounce.
A rule of thumb is $1.50 in face value 90% silver coins=just over a Troy ounce. I think an ounce of coins is 90% of a troy ounce and at 90% silver you lose a lot of money buying it this way. And make sure to look at current silver prices as the markets are very volatile.
