    Thanks for the advice! I think I'm getting hooked on these Silver Eagles. I'm just wanting to buy more. For investment purposes of course

    Picked up my box of halves today. Unfortunately it was a skunk. My first skunk ever. Not fond of this feeling. It contained about 13 NIFCs but I didn't keep any.

    Also the box contained black and white wrappers. Never seen these in my area. Forgot to ask my teller friend who their supplier is.

    Hope everyone has better luck!

    Dumped my skunk box today. Got some funny money from the magnet on the coin machine. After dumping I visited some banks to see if I could find some CWRs. One bank had two boxes of halves in their vault. Bought one. Unfortunately it was a skunk. 2 skunk box streak now.

    Good luck everyone!

    33$ is decent they normally command 5$ over spot. One of the banks I go to has the new ones for 57$ because they bought them when silver was almost 40$ an ounce

    Yea not bad. I only have two coin shops in my area and they both sell silver eagles $4.50 above spot.

    On another note, my co worker has been keeping an eye out for silver coinage for me. She stopped by a 7Eleven before work today for some coffee. The cashier was going to give her change when she noticed a white "fake" quarter. My coworker immediately knew it was silver. She asked to purchase it but the cashier told her that they put all "fake" quarters in a jug to send to the bank. She then said they had a full jug of these "fake" quarters in the back. The employee tested these quarters by dropping them in a hard surface. She did so in front of my coworker and it was definitely silver. I need to get over there and start begging.

    Scored some silver today!

    Calls a few banks today to see if any had halves. Didn't want to blindly venture out during my lunch and waste gas and time. Only 1 bank had CWRs. I was told they had $40 worth. The teller pulled the rolls from her safe and they looked old. I got a little excited. I opened them and pulled a 1968D. I'll take it! Silver has been dry for me lately. Good luck everyone!

    Can you find the silver?

    Happy weekend everyone!

    Went back to the bank that had 2 boxes in their vault. I bought one on Thursday that was a skunk. Went back today and bought the other one. The manager would only sell the box to me if I promised not to bring them back. Apparently someone brought the boxes the the branch and they have been sitting there ever since. Strange thing is that both boxes were opened but the rolls weren't. I'm guessing they were from a CRHer that weighed rolls instead of opening.

    Well he/she missed one! Pulled a 1968D and a 1969D from one roll! I'll take it!

    Good luck everyone!

    I've never heard of anyone weighing rolls, you'd have to have a really nice scale for that to be viable.

    I've seen some people on other forums try weighing. I personally weighed two rolls from the box. The roll with two silvers weighed slightly heavier than the roll without. In my opinion this would be the best explanation as to why someone would bring two opened boxes to a bank.

    It makes sense, and it's an interesting method, you'd just need a decently accurate scale.

    Some clads can be thicker and weigh more, and you could have one less coin in a roll, making the weighing off, and potentially missing a silver.

    Here is a good one:

    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.

    If you were weighing rolls, you could also check the height against a known value to know if you're short. Definitely some possibilities for missing some silver coins.

    1 box of halves with black/white wrappers = skunk (3 NIFCs)

    I still have 1 box of nickels to go through but it looks to be solid 2012

    Good luck everyone!
