    Wow...wow...wow - I really need a new camera! More Pictures Dates

    Took a little drive around town today during my lunch break and had a bit of good luck. At first I only had a 40% to show for my troubles and was getting a bit discouraged. I decided to take a little extra time for lunch and drive an extra 10 miles out of town and try my luck.

    First bank had a handful of skunks - at the second one the teller takes out $13 in skunks and says with a smile how many do you want... I'm thinking oh boy a big skunk dump waiting for me but I play along and say I can take a couple hundred. She chuckles and say "sure" and disappears for a while then returns with $200 in rolls that at least weren't the usual re-rolled brinks rolls. She then says "You want the rest, we got another $170". I figure what the heck, bring em on...

    I pay and head out the door and sit in my car and take a look at them. Well there was one old looking roll in the bunch so I figure open that one first and sure enough a skunk. I'm thinking I might as well get this over with so I open the next one not expecting much. But....WOW - all Walkers and Bens. I look down at the rest of the rolls that they were nice enough to put in a box for me and think "no way!". But guess what - - out they roll. Almost every roll is solid silver. I'm just sitting there astounded as each roll keeps spitting the same thing. Occasionally there were a few clad and the worst roll "only" had two Walkers and a Ben. As this is going down and I'm just staring at the rolls in amazement I'm realizing that this is likely a once in a life event but who knows with this hobby. I'm back at work now and will have to try and get some nice photos and a better count later tonight or tomorrow as I have a day off.

    The rough totals:

    29 freaking rolls of silver. About 24 of them are 90%. There were so many old coins that I was actually expecting a roll of Barbers but none appeared. Wow is all I kept saying as each roll slid into my hand - WOW.

    UPDATE:

    Ok got a couple pictures - one is the box full of the rolls and the other is just a random roll with the results. This one had the earliest date a 1935 with a bunch of 40's and 50's Walkers and Bens. Will dig in a little deeper if I get time tonight but am on kid duty so it is a little tough at the moment..

    New Update -

    Got the time to sort out the rolls a bit. First thing is I underestimated the totals. There was only one roll of 40% so 28 rolls of 90%. Another WOW! Here are the dates of the Franklins. The Walkers will have to wait. I did get about four rolls of pre 1940 Walkers but no key dates in the mix. I'll try to get the Walkers better sorted tonight! Thanks for the comments!

    3rd Update: Banner - didn't expect this. Seems it has created a little firestorm. I'm gonna stay out of that one - except to say I'll enjoy my ten minutes of fame. I got a chance to go through the pre 40 Walkers and for those keeping score I have posted the dates.

    Re: Wow...wow...wow - I really need a new camera!

    Oh yea - pictures coming. Wife wants to go to Disney World....maybe there will be enough left for a nice Nikon that is calling to me! You got to reward yourself every now and then. I will get the dates tomorrow as I have to work tonight. Didn't see any key dates initially but I barely had time to look. There were some 1917s and 1918s but they didn't have the obverse mint marks. I also saw a 1938 but was it was from Philly. Also a few proof Kennedy 64s were in there. I am pretty amazed at the box of coins I now have. It is like getting six months of CRH silver in a few minutes.
