    For what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?

    Four Boxes -- minus 49 cents

    February's numbers are trending much lower than January for me. In January I pulled 39 90%ers and 85 40%ers. So Far February has only given up 1 90%er and 25 40%er in searching 8 boxes and a few loose rolls from bank pick-ups. This week's four boxes produced 13x 40% coins, along with a few NIFC's, and an impaired clad proof (2002-S). The odd find this week was a 1937 British large Penny. This is the first I have gotten from a roll, but I did have an assistant manager at a supply bank give me one they culled from their sorting machine.

    The numbers by box and a few pictures are below.

    Box 1: 5x 40% (1967, 3x 1968-D, and a 1969-D).

    Box 2: 3x 40% (2x 1965 and a 1968-D).

    Box 3: 1x 40% (a lone 1969-D).

    Box 4: 4x 40% (1967, 1968-D, and 2x 1968-D). Box 4 also gave up the British Penny and the 2002-S impaired clad proof.

    All the best.

    Happy hunting.
    Steve

    You are doing much better than I am. I get a box a week, and I am on my sixth straight box 'o skunks.

    Clovis,
    Hang in there. I hope your luck improves with the next box! The slow times are tough, but better scores are bound to be coming.
    Best wishes,
    Steve
