    Today's Boxes 10/22/09

    Picked up about 400 buck in quarters and dimes today. Lately the handrolled dimes are tough to get and the quarters are marked.
    Anyway skunked out on them

    Picked up 8 boxes of halves today from two different banks. Two of the boxes were skunks.
    Here is what I got
    1x 1918 s WLH
    1x 1942 "
    1x 1945 s "
    1x 1964 Kennedy
    2x 1966 "
    3x 1967
    7x 1968
    1x 1969

    I'm picking up six more boxes tomorrow. Still have to work out a buy and dump routine. Hopefully I can do 20-24 boxes a week. If the dump banks drop me I'm out of here and on to other fun and games.
    I did get a 1908 Barber Half. However it was a forgery made out of a lead/ tin composition. There had to have been some other metal in it to harden it as I was unable to bend it with my fingers. The oxidation on it appears as if it were made 50+ years ago.

    That sounds cool would love to see it.

    sounds like the plan is off the ground.
    Let's keep it positive

    So you quitting if your dump bank drops you? I am starting to worry mine might do the same, but I am not going to quit, on to plan B!

    AG,
    The boxes are light when you buy them,but weigh a ton when you dump them.
    I've been kicked out of dump banks before and I don't want to chance being left holding the bag(of clad).
    It is nearing a year that I've been involved in CRH and the thrill is gone.I don't think my heart would skip a beat if I picked up 10 dream boxes in a row. However I hate to quit anything. So I'm going to push the envelope as far and as long as I can. Once I lose these dump banks that's it. I have other things that I am itching to do.

    Seems like these boxes were worth your time. You may not want to give up just yet.
