    Road Trippin BONANZA (trip#1)

    Well as some of you guys know my Wife and child are in Spain for close to two months. That leaves me with a lot of extra time and money on my hands. Hmmmmm what should I do with it? I am going on a Road Trippin binge baby. The following pics and stats are from the first of many I have planned. It was a great trip but tiring as I had just gotten back from Barcelona. I had a couple boxes ordered a long the planned route so I picked those up. I also had several banks to hit. I had speradic luck throughout the day. The boxes produced well and so did the very last bank of the day. A few minutes before close and I picked up several rolls of halves. This bank turned out to provide a few solid silver rolls. I included some pics of some of the rolls as well as the scenery from the road. I know you all will love that!

    P.S. My favorite is the 1964 with a black X marked through it. I never thought would come the day when I would thank you guys that mark the coin but today is was the day. Inside the wooden box are all the 90%.

    The Last picture is my last two days combined.

    Golden Silver

    Tally:

    (1) 1942 Walker
    (1) 1943s Walker
    (1) 1962 Ben
    (19) 1964 Kens

    Total 90%= 22

    (8) 1965
    (9) 1966
    (45) 1967
    (42) 1968
    (25) 1969
    (1) 1976s (Silver) Total keepers= 152

    great road trip golden...the silver had been begging you to return from Spain.

    Did your road trip also produce a 'five dollar foot long'?

    Sweet score! It looks like the X mark coin is from a rubber band that was on there for a long time. Congradulations!
