    VERY LARGE SILVER STASH BOUGHT FACE VALUE!!!!! MUST SEE, LOTS OF PICS

    OK, Well normally I don't post my finds but I always admire everyone Else's. You guys are great! Today I can't NOT post my latest AND GREATEST find TO DATE. This story will no doubt strike up some envy but hopefully will encourage all of you guys that there is still a ton of silver out there to be found.

    This past Friday, I decided to go on a little road trip to a little town for some coin roll hunting. I had called ahead to a few banks and some of them gave me some hope that I would make some good finds. I really had no clue though how the day would turn out. One bank I had called said they had 200 dollars in rolled half dollars and I said that I would be by later to pick them up. I stopped several times along the way at various banks with moderate success. I had found a couple 90% and few 40%ers. I was totally caught off guard by what happened next. I stopped into the bank that had the 200 dollars in halves reserved for me. The teller lady then said she did not have 200 but 390 dollars worth. At such large numbers I was expecting someones dumps, so I was doubtfull about the coins. Not wanting to spend all my coin money on someones marked up dumps I asked a few questions. I asked if these were rolls they had accumulated over time or dropped off by one individual? She said that they had been dropped of by one man. Right then, I was thinking definitely someones dumps. I was thinking it over and about to say that I would not be able to buy them when she opens up a roll and says "THESE ARE SILVER." Believe it or not I was still sceptical because I can't count the amount of times these tellers tell me they have silver coins and they really are not. I ask her what the dates say and she replies 67', 68'. There was no more hesitation on my part and I bought all the halves that she had. What I found when I got to the car was almost to stop my heart. Walker after Ben after 64 laced with plenty of uncerculated 40%ers. 99% of all the coins I bought there were silver!!!! So I send this message overjoyed at my find and full of pictures as well as the final tallies. Enjoy and happy hunting y'all.

    LJ, An answer to your questions. The feeling was unbelievable opening silver after silver roll. You are almost in a state of unbelief. Once it sank in what I had found, I just admired the over flowing from my box in the front seat. What i could not get over is that most of the kennedies, even the 64's were in pristine uncerculated condition. Even the Walkers and Bens were in Extra fine shape for the most part.

    Another answer to your question LJ is yes, I am ready to go again. I go on these trips often and I do my research. I always have planned route of attack and 80% of the time it turns out great for me. I have found small collections before but nothing of this size. But I have also only been doing this for 2 months. I have already accumulated over $7,000 worth of silver. And what is even better is that I have only spent a small fraction of that to aquire it all.

    I am thankful for all the replies and can't wait to hear what the rest of y'all think.

    -Golden Silver
