    Cool My first "dream box"! 160 Keepers!

    After hitting a pretty bad skunk streak a few months ago I had decided to take a break from CRH, but the bug eventually bit me again and I restarted by regular weekly order of 4 boxes of halves. So last night after the kids went down I started busting into them, and I'm still in shock at what I found!

    The first box was very good: a total of 25 keepers (22 40% Kennedy halves, 2 90% Kennedy halves, and 1 Franklin half). But take a look at this roll, which was a preview of what was to come. Yes Virginia, there are 8 keepers in that one roll!

    The second box was nothing exciting: just one 40% Kennedy. But I knew I was in for something special when I opened the third box when I saw several enders looking up at me. Ended up being 12 rolls with enders, including one Walking Liberty ender.

    I started opening by ender rolls and was shocked at the results. One roll had 10, another 8, several had 7. When it was all said and done I had 160 keepers from that one box: 136 40% Kennedy, 19 90% Kennedy, 4 90% Franklins, and 1 Walking Liberty Half. Of the 50 rolls in the box, 41 had at least one silver coin.

    And what became of the fourth and final box you ask? Skunk! I certainly can't complain though when this is the night's sorted haul. Total for the evening was 159 40% Kennedy, 21 90% Kennedy, 5 Franklin, and 1 Walking Liberty!

    I'll probably post more detail later on on my blog, but I just had to share this find. This is why we do this! The silver is still out there!

    Nice going there Billy, I would say that is definetly a dream box! It's always fun to open rolls with silver in them but, when rolls have 6 or 7 or 8 in them it's got to be a joy opening them while your hands are shaking. HH, Maverick.

    It will be hard to ever top that box but I guess that will carry you through a few of those bad skunk spells. One box like that makes all the others worth the while in the long run. Congratulations.

    My wife thought the same thing until I found a box with 10 Enders. I waited for her to get home before I started cracking into them. There was 25 1964's and 51 40%ers! Now...... She gets pissy when I don't get any to go through! Lol!

    Thanks! I had the same thought myself that I would never be able to duplicate that magical box, but it does give me motivation and a reminder that there is still plenty of silver out there. Even if it is a long shot of duplicating this box, I have 12 more boxes on order for next week to try.

    I have been very lucky that my wife is a bit OCD as well and is very understanding of my hobby. She has no interest in doing it herself, but seems genuinely happy that I am doing this and occasionally finding silver.
