    FIRST BOX OF HALVES


    My first box of half dollars ever arrived on Friday and after returning from my Thanksgiving trip, I picked them up on Saturday. It was a sealed brown box ( no markings, not a Brinks). I thought I did pretty well:

    1 Franklin - 1960d
    1 90% Kennedy - 1964
    9 40% Kennedy's

    The Franklin was the last one I found, so it really topped off the box for me. I set something up with the teller to get me a box each week with their regular order.

    Hey Mercury

    That is a great box in my book. So far after my big box order on Wednesday and all prior half dollar boxes I have a total of 13 skunks out of 13 boxes. Go figure! Keep up the great work on nailing the silver.

    Happy Hunting,
