    Had my mom pick up my 3 boxes I could not grab because the teller was gone on Friday.

    Box 1: 2/40% - 9/90% - 1/Walking ( all in first half of the box, nothing in the rest but a 1992 and 1980 magicians coins )
    Box 2: Skunk
    Box 3: Skunk

    Seems I got the front and back of the collection dump. The 1964's came from the same collection, they are all damned shiny and the '42 walker isnt in the worst of conditions, though not show room quality.

    I will be dumping $1000 worth of halves tomorrow to grab what dimes and nickels the bank has to offer me.

    I also picked up a 1983 Mexican Libertad 1oz round as the prices dropped some and I figured why not.

    Total for May

    3 - Rosies
    1 - 2011 Canadian Maple Leaf ( Purchased at spot )
    1 - 1983 Mexican Libertad ( Purchased at spot )
    18 - 40% Halves
    25 - 1964 Halves
    1 - Walking Liberty
    8 - Skunks vanquished

    14.2833 ozt found in May - +8.1274 past my goal of 136 ozt - 7.8726 away from next months goal of 152

    Nickels and dimes tomorrow after dump. 2 Boxes on Wednesday, 5 boxes on Friday and 2 auctions on Friday, 1 auction on Sunday.

    Only dimes since the teller already wrapped up the nickels for their use.

    Out of $335 worth of dimes, I managed two Rosies so no complaints out of me, that is the best I have done ratio wise in a while with dimes.

    Got my 2 boxes of halves today. On the way out one of the tellers calls out my name and says, I have something for you. She hands me a 1914 D Barber Dime in outstanding condition.

    As for the two boxes,

    Box 2: 1 - 1965, second to last roll.

    Really depends on the auction and those attending.

    Coin Auctions dedicated to coins, you will pay close to spot price at the very least... usually.

    Regular auctions, like people selling personal items, you can score big. I have got silver quarters and halves for $1 ea at those kinds. I picked up a 10g bar of gold for $400, it was worth $572 at the time. Its hit and miss though.

    I ended up making about $22 total on my purchased from the auction, as it was a coin auction. I did get two 2005 Silver State Quarter sets but I traded the guy who got the two 2007 sets for one of his. win/win on both of our parts, though my sets did book out at $5 more ea, I didnt really care.

    I am telling you man, I wish I could up the volume to make my ears bleed. The boxes out here on average are pretty damned good. Logistically its just not possible though and I barely have the time to do the 6-7 boxes a week I do get to do.

    I would love to figure out a way to get a bag of ikes though, maybe in a couple months I will have you mail one out to me I cant seem to find a place to order me one yet. I am going to start calling different branches in KC and see what they can do. I know we have a fed reserve branch in KC but I am not sure if they carry coin or not, I would assume so.

    Yeah I do because I have a 4 oz a week goal. I figure $120 a week of the good stuff is a lofty goal to say the least, when paying spot for it. Its still a lofty goal when getting it at face. I have thought about separating the two but really, the auction, store and street buys all go towards the goal so I figure they should be added in.

    Got my nickels and dimes done finally. Went in Monday and they could not get into the vault, the clock messed up. Got them on Tuesday, did the dimes and got the nickels done today.

    $285 in CW Dimes produced 2 Rosies, one on the first small handful, which was nice.
    $24 in CW Nickels produced 1 War, 1945 D

    Friday is 6 boxes of halves and maybe some CWR's.

    I understand the auction grabs, but why store buys? I could set my goal to 20 oz. this month and easily do it buy buying 20 oz. today.
    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.

    Well, I didnt have a Maple leaf and I honestly wanted one, its a nice looking coin. Also, I liked the look of the libertad and decided to buy one. I dont buy often from the coin shop but when the prices dropped considerably, I will buy and ounce or two. I like to look at the coins too from time to time.

    Well, todays 6 boxes were done, no where near good nor near my average. I thought today would end up good but it failed

    Bank 1:

    Box 1: 1/40% 1/90%
    Box 2: 2/40%
    Box 3: Skunk

    Bank 2:

    Box 1: Skunk
    Box 2: Skunk
    Box 3: Skunk ( two gold plated 2008's )

    And to top it off, I could not go pick up my new boat today to work on it over the weekend. Oh well, at least I wont have to deal with Memorial day ******s on the road.

    All I have left to look forward to is possible dimes and nickels tomorrow if the vault teller isnt gone, when I dump $1000 in halves and two boxes of halves on Tuesday from the local branch. I was hoping to find 20 oz of silver in halves in a month, I am sitting at 18.0161 currently, its still possible, these two boxes could put me over the mark.

    $105 in dimes done today, skunked.

    I am now taking the banks pennies as well. The only thing they will ever have to ship out is my $1000 in halves once a week. They no longer have to ship out dimes, nickels, pennies or quarters ( when they have them ). I also take their SBA's and Gold dollars just to make them extra happy and look for errors and dump them into the gas tank.

    Grabbed $30 in pennies, have not searched them yet.. might not be able to for a while.
