First 2 boxes of the week, no enders, but Lots of Silver!
Hey everyone, well, I'm very happy with the begining of this week, I've been kickin the skunk right in his teeth here lately.
So, when I got home with these today I thought for sure they were gona be skunks for sure, boy was I wrong! The interesting thing about these 2 boxes were, not one mark on any of the coins at all, and a lot of ( what looked to be) un circulated coins in them (mostly box 2). So this is the most that I have ever pulled out of a box with no enders in it. So far My best box in allmost 11 months of doing this has been a box with 4 enders that had 41 silvers in it. Box 2 was real fun to open, every other roll or so had silver, 1 had 3 and some had 2 in them. I'll post my normal end of the week 2 boxes when I get them Friday (if there's anything to post).
Thanks everyone for looking, and as I always say, Good luck to everyone hunting today! Maverick.

Thanks Boris, I was definetly surprized, honestly, I was happy with the first box ( 1 90 4 40) but box 2 was a record for me! Hope you have great results from your 2 boxes, keep me posted! HH, Maverick.

I thought I smelled skunk, lol. What are you waiting for, open them halves! I was definetly blown away by box 2. I guess I've been beating the skunk so long I figured it was time for him to win here again, but not today! HH Buff, Maverick.

Enders are a strange thing. Im my last week I had:
1 ender with 20 keepers in the box
3 enders with 4 keepers
2 enders with 4 keepers
0 enders with 5 keepers

ya that is alot for a box with no enders, 1 of if not the most i've ever seen reported.
Enders generally mean theres about 3-5 silver per ender and that 3-5 scales up the more enders...."generally" i say loosely, because I have had my fair share of boxes just like Namster stated above......but I would say it's about 90% accurate for me over the past 15 months.

nice job, me and my son have bad luck with rolls in Richmond Va. maybe we should spread out . anyway awsome nothing like free money,
ps do you have any problem giving the reg coins back to the bank

Good point Bigheed on averages. Statistically based on the amount of coins per box and the amount of coins showing, you should get 10 silver coins per ender. However, there is also a 1 in 10 chance that in a 1 silver box, that silver will be an ender. therefore, if you only have an ender or two showing, your are not necessarily going to hit the average. This is probably why the ratio is less than 10silvers/1ender. When you scale up, you move closer towards that 10. The law of averages, the only reason chemistry works!

Great job Maverick.....Love to see the porn! Box #2 was very nice, whenever I get a box like that I always wonder what the box before and after this one was like off the coin rolling machine. Great boxes....thanks for sharing.

Hey Bigheed, I would agree with you, that has been about my averages with enders too.
Thanks Baddbuff, I've been pretty fortunate lately, I try and post most all my finds to keep the people that are getting skunks from getting discouraged.
Richmonddigger, I do get dirty looks from some of the tellers when I bring my dumps in, but I haven't been refused yet, so I keep on going.
Big fat, lol, I allways wonder the same thing. Should I have ordered 4 boxes, were the next ones even better, or the ones before, will i get the rest of the silver on the next order? I think we all wonder the same thing, And the silver porn, I put up pics of my finds because I like seeing what other people find in the boxes and hope they like seeing mine.
Thanks again everyone who looked and comented, I really do enjoy this forum and am glad I found it. Good luck to everyone hunting this week.
SilverforBrains, thanks for looking.
Namster, thanks, I'm very happy this week so far, 2 more boxes to go later this week. I'm hoping to stuck to the averages of 5-10 silver per ender, but I see you have defenetly proved that wrong a few times, ( with the exception of the EPIC box you just had), do you sit and run it back and forth between your hands to hear the sound of the silver hitting each other, lol, I know I would be, Thanks again, Maverick.
