Friday I was supposed to receive 2 boxes, but they didnt come in. I had called ahead to see if those boxes came in and was told they did. When I arrived at the bank and found out that they had not, I made my displeasure known.

This apparently worked out as the bank called me this morning telling me they had the truck make a special delivery for me and that my boxes were available. Naturally I went in with glee.

The first box was partially open and damaged so I hand counted the rolls to make sure they were all present. Upon doing so, I saw that there was a 40% in the window of the roll. I took this as a good omen, and I was not wrong. In this box I found 8 40% total plus a 1964 JFK half in the same roll as the one with silver showing and I found a 1943 Walker in the box too!

BOX # 8
8 (40%) I like how my eighth box had 8 40's in it hehe
1 (90% JFK)
1 (Walker)

RUNNING TOTAL
BOXES SEARCHED = 8 ($4000 TOTAL)
25 (40%)
6 (90% JFK)
1 (WALKER)

Oh, I forgot to mention that the walker has a small hole in it. Nevertheless, I cannot complain

Today's box of halves started off like the last one.. with a silver half showing on an end roll when I opened it up. I love getting silver in the first roll I open. You know it is probably going to be lean when you see lots of those black felt tip markings on the edges though.

$500 BWR Halves
4-40%ers - All 1969-D
1 2003-D
1 2009-D
1 2010-P

$100 CWR Halves
Skunk

$7 loose halves from teller trays
Skunk

1 BIG Dollar
No silver here

$180 CWR Quarters
Skunk
1 quarter short

$1000 Quarters in 2 plastic bags I rescued prior to shipment
Skunk - At least I am getting my silver searcher score up a little bit

The latest SILVER stats for September 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.

Country you have interpreted my posts incorrectly. Everything under my "RUNNING TOTAL" headers is what I have found to date, since I started hunting, NOT since the beginning of the month. You should only look at what I post under the BOX TAKE/RESULT headings.

Long weekend. $100 quartes and $50 dimes, customer wrapped = 0. $50 bank wrapped dimes, paper = 0. $250 bank wrapped plastic = 3 silver dimes (50, 62, 64) and one gold plated dime --- I remember Highroller4321 having found 2 gold coins in small demonination bags, and seeing this gold coin thru the plastic I had a momentary heart-leap. Also did 2 bags of nickles, $100 each. First had 2 war nickles and a dateless (1928) buffalo; the second $100 bag had 6 war nickles.

Hey Country- It looks like the data got sideways on the full year halves totals...My total should be higher and I think zerocd's total is off too.

Thanks!

Did you penalize us for some reason?
