    Skunked on the envelope of halves as well as the $190 in CWR.

    Pulled one dime from the $75 in CWR: 1964.

    The dime and the four 40%ers from the teller's tray made this a good day.

    Thanks. This forum has helped me to hit the ground running. Very educational, the first two things that I gleaned from this site was to get a system down and establish a good rapport with the tellers and managers of one's pick-up banks.

    Can't say.. it's a bad thing until proven otherwise. Thing is, buy them all and hopefully prove otherwise.

    Picked up a box of halves yesterday, only one lone 40%er in there: 1967.

    Also picked up a box of dimes, only got halfway through it last night before I stopped and went to bed. The rolls that I did get through were all dated 2012.

    EDIT: All but one roll of the dimes were dated 2012. Skunked.

    Picked up a box of halves and a box of dimes yesterday, skunked on both boxes. Boo!

    EDIT: dumped the halves and dimes today, snagged a 1965 40%er from the teller's tray!

    You usually CRH dimes right? I haven't been able to try dimes yet. Have you had any success randomly purchasing rolls from banks or do you mainly do boxes?

    All the experienced dime hunters will tell you that boxes are more consistent (skunk to about 7 at most, avg. 1-2), but with customer wrapped rolls you can score big and even hit a solid roll sometimes (I haven't found one yet but I guess they're out there). Most of the time I ask for rolled dimes from the bank I just get rolls that came out of boxes anyway, so might as well get the whole box. people go to coinstar and bring less coin to the banks these days.

    Yeah, I usually do dimes. I do about even with CWR vs. boxes/MWR of dimes.

    Just started really hitting the halves hard.

    Picked up a box of halves and a box of nickels yesterday. Skunked on the halves, haven't gone through the nickels yet.

    EDIT: no silver in the nickels, only thing worthwhile was a 1939 with no mint mark.

    Picked up a box of halves on my lunch break, found one 40%er: 1966.

    Five-box skunk streak broken!

    Also found a 1957 Roosevelt in the reject tray when I was dumping the halves!
