    Statistics with dimes?

    I just went through 450 worth of Brinks rolled dimes and got skunked.

    I guess Im spoiled now that I am averaging 1.15% of my halves being silver.

    So what do you get when you go through dimes?

    Re: Statistics with dimes?

    I did one box of Brinks dimes and got one silver rossie.
    My half results are far better, but that isn't much of a "sample".
    Halves Only.
    2009: 47,411 halves searched (1,185lbs, .59 Tons): 93 - 90% (.19%), 258 - 40% (.54%), 10 - "S" (.02%).  71.79 Troy Oz, 5.98 Troy Lbs.
    Goals:  Near term: $100 face 90% Halves
    Long term: $1,000 face 90% Halves

    Re: Statistics with dimes?

    I haven't kept statistics but I bet I've gone through about 11-12k in dimes. I have netted over 500 silver coins including over 25 Mercs and one Barber. However, I was lucky and scored 6 solid rolls of silver dimes once and had three other minor scores of rolls that were half silver or more including two rolls this week that netted 65 silver dimes (including two 1941 Mercs).

    Today, however was a different story. I went through about $350 in dimes and come up with one Rosie. I keep it up with the dimes because every few weeks I seem to hit it big.

    Good luck,

    OWS

    Re: Statistics with dimes?

    Out here in the No. Cal, Brinks uses plastic see through wrappers for their coins except for halves... so one can spot a silver easily.. Last week was my first try at searching dimes. It didn't take me long to look go through a box and found 3 silver roosies. The only bad part was that they seem to short change me.. the box was short by 40 cents. 4 rolls were missing a dime.. I found this out by weighing and comparing the rolls.

    Those see-thru plastic Brinks rolls don't produce at all for me. Also, here in Mich they are peppered with Canadian dimes, so you have to tear the rolls open anyway as to not miss silver. ffd

    Fist,

    After enough edge searching you can tell the difference between Canadian and U.S dimes. The reeds are different.

    Hey don't just look for bright silver edges, also look for black edges and super worn/smooth edges too (suspect coins). I found more than a few silver dimes that way.

    Re: Statistics with dimes?

    i have found that my dimes are pretty consistant with 2 per box. i have also found Mercs but can't figure an average as several showed up together.
