Too bad you didn't hit paydirt with some rolls of 90% halves also.

I'll put the dimes and quarters into your stats. I need more info on the nicks.

How many dollars of nicks did you get from the bank? How many War Nicks did you find?

Just split them in half I guess, I checked for enders and didnt put them back into each box after I checked. Both boxes had silver in the, just not sure of the numbers for each. Not used to boxes these days with all my bags...

This will be my last report for a while. I canceled my weekly half dollar order. Other things are keeping me busy these days, and I haven't been getting phenomenal boxes like I used to. Maybe I will pick it up again later when there are a bunch of fresh boxes filled with coins turned in by customers at the top of the pile. Country, thanks again for all the hard work keeping such excellent stats.


$2000 halves
1 proof
1 extra half


Details:

Box 1:

Box 2:
1 proof: 1994S

The latest SILVER stats for August have been posted. Look to the first post of this thread to get the details. Always look to the line just before the Kitco quotes to see the last post that was included in the latest update.
