    Back in the game!

    After taking close to a month off from CRH to finish up some remodeling projects on my house, I picked up a box of dimes + $50 worth of CWR of dimes.

    The $50 in CWR were skunks. Found two keepers in the box though:

    1917 Mercury Dime
    1962D Roosevelt

    That's my second Merc as well as my oldest CRH find!

    Not a bad way to get back in the game.

    I just can't believe it...

    Dumped my dimes from yesterday on my lunch break, then proceeded to pick up $300 worth of MWR of halves from a bank I don't usually go to...

    SCORED MY FIRST 90%ER!!! And it was an ender!

    Total take was:

    1964 x 1
    1967 x 4
    1968 x 3
    1969 x 1

    Nine total keepers! I'm gonna swing by that bank again tomorrow to see if they have any more rolls.

    I feel drunk!

    Thanks! Sorry to hear it's been slow. Hopefully things pick up for you.

    Thanks! The roll with the '64 ender also had the lone '69 in it. My first 90%er, my first ender, and my first roll with more than one keeper. Also my biggest take for halves. Lotta firsts just from that measly $300 worth. Hopefully the bank has more, I'll be going back there on my lunch break today.

    Man, the Mercs are rolling in for some reason...

    Went to dump my halves from last night on my lunch break. I walked up to the coin counter and saw two dimes sitting in the reject tray:

    1944 Mercury
    1964D Roosevelt

    That makes three Mercs that I've found so far.

    Picked up $220 worth of MWR of halves from the same bank as yesterday, hopefully they are as good as the $300 I picked up yesterday.

    Also picked up $80 of MWR dimes.

    Skunked on the $80 in dimes. The $220 in halves produced six keepers:

    1966 x 2
    1967 x 1
    1968 x 1
    1969 x 2

    Total amount of halves searched: $520.
    Total keepers: 15 (1 90%er, 14 40%ers).

    Gonna start ordering my halves at this new bank for sure.

    This is my month for crushing goals!

    Picked up a box of halves on my lunch break. My boss isn't in today, so I took a longer lunch. I decided that I would open just $200 worth of the halves since I had a half hour left until I had to be back at work.

    The box had no enders, but out of the first roll I pulled a 1962 Franklin and a 1968 40%er! The rest of the $200 gave up three other 40%ers. Total take was:

    1962 x 1
    1967 x 2
    1968 x 2

    And I still have $300 worth of the box to go through tonight!

    I had such a crappy start with halves, I had found only fourteen in three-and-a-half months. I was getting so discouraged.

    Now, just in the last week-and-a-half, I've found 20+.

    It definitely is still out there. I believe now! Haha.

    The remaining $300 worth of halves produced five 40%ers:

    1967 x 2
    1968 x 1
    1969 x 1
    Silver Bicentennial x 1

    Not bad.
