Ok guys a lot of news to report this time around

First the icing on the cake was the acquisition of 3 40% JFK silver halves Naturally I was quite pleased.

However, there was something much nicer in store for me. I saw the rim immediately and I knew it had to a 90% silver coin; it simply was too brilliantly white to be anything else! This is also my first 90% find and I am much more pleased with the situation than the value of the coin itself would suggest.

However some silver clouds have dark linings...

My mom has an extended relationship with the bank and naturally this fact facilitated obtaining the halves.

However my mother reports both that the teller who likes her the most today was totally silent and avoided eye contact, in contrast to his usual gregarious nature. In addition when asked for 3 boxes this teller responded with a look of disbelief and offered only 1 box in reply.

I am going to start pounding the pavement and find other banks because a de facto standing order clearly will not stand*

*Which is to say that my mother merely ask each week before Tuesday for the halves without specifying extended procurement.

So yea, use the bathroomty situation in light of my box and running totals which I will post again for accuracy in record keeping.

BOX TAKE:
3 40% JFK
1 90% JFK

(EVIL STUFF FOUND IN BOX )
1 1978 Mexican 10 peso coin (also ugly as hell...)

$2k in bagged halves, nothing. Here we go again...

You've posted 3 boxes so far: Box 1 (1-40%er), Box 2 (6 40%ers), and Box 3 (3 40%ers and 1 90%er). Did you have another box that was a SKUNK?

Yes, my first box was a skunk and for that reason I believed that no silver could be found in the boxes I was obtaining, so I didn't bother to report it.

But yes, Box 1 = SKUNK

Thanks... Please report your SKUNKs too; that extra amount of searching will add to your SILVER Searcher score. Also, it lets me keep track of your SILVER box streak and the average number of SKUNK boxes we are finding.

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.

This will be the last update for August until the final August update is posted on September 1.
