This weekends searching:

$40 CWR = 40 40% (lucky number 40 there)

Box 1 = SKUNK

Box 2 = 1 40%

3 boxes of dimes = 3 skunks (This was a first, as dimes usually produce something)

$200 CWR dimes = skunk

August continues to be good to me.

This morning, $10 CWR halves - skunk and $10.50 loose halves - 1 '68D. Nice. So I go back into the bank to ask for some wrappers since I had $10 even in halves. While the teller was searching, I spotted some CWRs sitting on her counter and thought, what the heck, I've never searched dimes or quarters yet. She had $150 in quarters, but 2 of the wrappers were old looking, and she thought they were "short", so she cracked one open and spilled it out. I nearly hit the floor when I heard the silver ring. All Canadian, SOLID silver roll! The roll had 1943-1968 written on it, yet the oldest coin was a '55. The other roll ended up being all Canadian as well, but 2000+ dates. She was reluctant to sell them to me, but I kept saying over and over "it's alright, I don't plan to spend them" lol. Very strange seeing Canadian down here in Georgia.

$25 CWR dimes - skunk
$150 CWR quarters - 1 solid silver roll
- 1 1955
- 1 1958
- 1 1961
- 1 1963
- 2 1964
- 9 1965

Half Box #61

1 1965

Better than a skunk, but it seems good boxes are getting harder to get.

Strange thing was all the 1976's - close to half the box. None special, just circulated bicentennials. Someone must have dumped their hoard.
