Unless you say otherwise, I am going to assume that the first $1000 bag had all the SILVERs.



First $1000 bag had 1 40% er and the NIFC. Second $1000 bag and the $50 in String rolls were skunks, and the loose $23 yielded the remaining 4 40%ers.

4 more boxes of halves with nothing worth keeping. That takes my skunk streak to over 8,000 coins without silver.
Time to sort more!

Finally got around to halve searching again. I hate getting short on funds..

$86.00 loose from a teller.
(1) 90% 1964 Kennedy
(1) 1966
(3) 1967
(1) 1968-d
(2) 1969-d

I also found a teller who told me they get silver in every once in a while and told me about a "old Silver silver dollar" they got in a little while back, she said it was from 1885. I was amazed. Then she offered to collect my name and number to give me a call when they get silver in!! Sweet!!

$100 BWR Halves = SKUNK

Box of Nickles KEPT:

2 War 44p, 45p
1 Buffalo 1936 (my first found buffalo!)
2 Canadian 1982, 1989
1 2009 P
39 1960 or prior

Also found/kept a 1980p...it looks like a possible over strike on the word "Liberty" and the year "1980"...I'm going to try and do some research on it now. Does anyone know if this was a possible error year? Or could it just be that the edge of the nickel is worn down?

10 Boxes of halves searched.

39 40%

3 64 Kennedy's

1 62 Franklin

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



WLECOME!!

Unless you say otherwise, I am going to assume that every other box was a SKUNK. When you post new finds, please try to report how many SILVERs are in each box. Thanks...

Everyother box a shunk sounds about right. From this point I'll box as a do a box along with the individual years. Working on one this evening and it's NOT a skunk



Thanks...

Your finds will count. However, the SILVER STREAK half box stats and the SILVERS in each half box stats will be extrapolated since I didn't have the per box data.
