    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!

    Congrats on the broken skunk streak. Any silver is good silver! Wish the banks near me had counting machines so I could check reject trays.

    Picked up two boxes of dimes after work. First box had one keeper: 1963. Second box will be searched tomorrow.

    EDIT: Second box of dimes was a skunk.

    Silver is few and far between for me in late April/May.

    Do you keep all pre-1960 nickels?
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Another box of halves, another lone 40%er, another 1966. If it isn't a skunk, one per box seems to be the norm for me.

    I need to start hitting banks with counting machines. I think there's one about 15-20 minutes away. Congrats on the random reject tray find.

    I have a lot of luck with reject tray finds, especially with this one branch of my dump bank. Seems like I find something either in the coin counter's reject tray or the teller's tray every time I go in there.
