a good find
I have not posted much this year because i have not found much. maybe ten 40% res for the year. but this weekend was a little different.
Got to take a shot trip. Friday on the way out I stopped at a few small town banks and picked up a few hundred $ in .50, Found a pair of 67"s. I thought that was good. But monday I stopped at one bank got about 10 rolls. Next stop a restroom . My wife went in, came out and I went in. When I came out she said "look what I found", she was holding the open roll 18 40%. I let her drive a while and I opened the remaining rolls, 3 solid rolls of 40%. a roll of 67, a roll of 68, and a roll of 69, and a roll of mixed almost full. In total we found 85 40% on the trip. One was a 68 greased die error. I have found several of these errors before but never a 40%.
This was my best day CRH, my best day before this was 32. If I was better with cameras and computer I would post a picture buy you all know what 4 rolls and five look like. HH

Wow...that is friggin amazing! Nice job. I'd probably crap my pants if I ever got that many solid rolls. Heck, I'm still waiting to find my 1st solid roll. But sooner or later, I'll join the 'club'

How many boxes do you hunt a week?

I don't do boxes right now . I don't have the capital to to 10 or more a week and any less here is a wast of time.
