    I Got PROOF!

    I've gone through five boxes so far this week. First three were all skunk! Even the 6 or 7 banks I stopped in had nada! So today I picked up two boxes I ordered from a new bank, Bank of America. I have had weird vibes from the BofA branches around here. They don't like to order boxes, but i smoozed a teller and she said she would see what she could do. A week later I get a call "your halves are in!". Picked them up today.

    Box 1- 5- (s) Proofs
    Box 2- 1- (s) Proof
    3- 40%ers
    1-1963 Franklin

    One of the Proofs is a mat finish. Tomorrow I pick up another two boxes, wish me luck...

    Nice, are they clad or silver proof?

    There must be something in the water. I keep a record of what I find.
    1/22/12 $1000.00 (1) Franklin Proof (1955)
    (8) 40% Kennedy’s
    (4) 1970 D Kennedy’s
    (2) 1981 S Proof
    (1) 1982 S Proof
    (1) 1985 S Proof
    (3) 1987 S Proof
    (1) 1988 S Proof
    (2) 1989 S Proof
    (2) 1994 S Proof
    Just a few weeks ago I went through 2 boxes and came away with the above.
    The Franklin proof blew me away. Unfortunately it has two small fingerprints on the obverse.
    All the rest are clad proofs. And the 4 1970 D's were really unexpected.

    The proofs are clad. One is a mat finish, the others are cameo. Kenedy is mat finish on a mirror back.
