The Herd Done Got Thinned......
Benn searching Nickels almost exclusively for the past 3 weeks. In that time I've done 10 boxes, and WOW, only ONE Buffalo Nickel. A pretty well worn 1926-P.
Never really had a Buffalo skunk streak like this. Anyone else having problems scoring Buffalo Nickels as well?

R.I.P. Rich Hartford, You'll be missed.
yes, solid 2012 nickel rolls. no buffaloes at all, not even the new ones!

I might average about 1 war per box and 1 buffalo every 3 besides the boxes where they do seem to herd up but that is usually non readable date ones.

I got spoiled by a lot of really good boxes. I'd have to say for awhile I was averaging close to 4-5 Buffalo Nickels and 3-4 War Nickles per box. Too bad it's dried up.

Mangling rolls since '09
WOW. I average a little over 1 war and half a buff per box.

I don't search nickels that often, but lifetime I have searched ~20 boxes or so and have never pulled a single buffalo from a box.

Ive done 8-10 boxes in the past three months, no buffs.

Dang, guess I was livin' the good life for a bit. I'll stop complaining and get back to hunting.

I don't know about you but I normally get 2 war 2 buffaloes a box. Mostly the brinks boxes have buffaloes. But when I get a loumis buffalo it almost always has a date.

871 rolls of nickels done so far this year, 8 war nickels, 7 buffalo and 2 V nickels. Nickels simply dont produce around here. Dimes, I am lucky if I get 1 per 50 rolls. Halves are my producer and right now, they are not producing either.

Probably someone dumped a collection into Loomis a long time ago, and it got spread around among many boxes.
