    Personal Dream Box!

    So I had to take a couple weeks off from searching because the job was interfering with my returns and I had a few $K sitting around the house. Fast forward: the coins have been cashed and the account replenished and I tell the bank to resume my weekly order. Bank calls and said they misunderstood but they did have $1K for me. Okay, work again so I'll pick it up on Thursday (I work 12+ hour night shifts so waiting for the bank to open isn't in the works as I hit the sack after a Benadryl at the same hour they open, and I still had 2 days of work ahead of me when they called).

    Come Thursday and they have not $1k but $2K. Sure, I'll take them all.

    Now it's Scouts and meeting night, followed by a big fundraiser that takes 2 days (super mega yard sale, 3 - 30' storage units worth) so I search 1 box and find 1 40% and the other three boxes wait.

    Yard sale over and I manage to plow through a 2nd box (3 40%) before passing out.

    Today I am rested and finish the other two boxes along with a box of cents (total skunk, almost all 2012's) and a box of dimes (1 1964).

    The first box of halves yields 1 40%. Hey, any time I can manage 1 per box I am good with it because my take to date was only 50 silvers total in 51 boxes.

    Then the 4th and final box.....

    3 enders staring up at me! The 3 ender rolls yield 7 silvers between them - all 40%.

    The rest of the box yields another ender (bottom side) with 4 silvers total and the only 90% in the box. Not a bad box so far, but like the TV commercial says wait, there's more!

    The final tally for the one box was 42 silvers! 42! 1 90% and 41 40%. 42 silvers from one box vs. 50 silvers total for the first 51 boxes ever searched.

    I took pics for the first time ever (new phone) and as soon as I figure out how to download them I'll post. I think the wife was getting annoyed with me interrupting her on-line Scrabble game every time I scored more. 1 roll yielded 4 silvers including the only 90%.

    The girls at the bank are going to get homebaked bread next visit.

    I should also add that this box also yielded a handful of near-pristine 1971's. It honestly looked like someone had dumped a virgin roll into the bin there were so many. I know the album is going to get upgraded as soon as I figure which piece is closest to mint state.

    All this and a grease-filled die error (no date) this week and I am almost walking on cloud nine.

    And I am skunked by the blasted cellphone. It (or the computer itself more likely) won't let me download the pics. It's a Pantech P2030 if anyone here is savvy with that sort of thing.

    Good answers, guys, but I don't have a data plan, just phone service. Looking at the quick start flyer now, not much help.

    Does your phone have a card? You may be able to take the card out and plug it in if you have a card-reader.

    It might also work to plug the phone into your computer, but I believe you said that wasn't working right. You may need a driver, search "pantech p2030 usb driver" and see what comes up.

    So I stop by the local AT&T store and ask about the download situation, and to her credit the young woman didn't bat an eye. Wal-Mart's photo dept. can Blue Tooth the camera to disc for $3. For a find like this it will be worth the time and tiny investment. Expect some silver porn in the next few days.
