    Tim.. I am in no way a "clad lover," but I really think you should lay off marking for awhile.. At least in the manner you are talking about doing.. Ink is obvious.. Regardless of whether it gunks up Garda's machine, it would still be extremely obvious that its you doing that kinda of mass marking on the coins.. They already know you and have already had a problem with you marking the coins.. Once again with the volume you do man I am sure they are just looking for a reason to cut you off. I would chill for awhile.. Just my two cents.. I think you will really regret it in the future..

    I had a Yugoslavian coin marked with ink (low value) that I couldn't get off. I guess you're not the first to come up with that idea.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Tim, you got the bank in trouble for marking coins, why not simply get your coins, while checking for enders, mark each coin on the end with a big T, or a circle, and then open the roll? this will guarantee 50-100 coins per box for only 2 minutes of marking... and banks won't get mad!

    I think buffalo is right.. We aren't saying not to mark your coins, but just do them in a way that's not so obvious.. You have to stay as discreet as possible, Just because of how much volume you do.. Just trying to help..

    Either:
    1) You think you are going to buy ink, thin it to a viscosity that can be applied with a spray bottle, and repeat the mass marking experiment that you said you already learned all you could from (and that you allegedly planned to stop doing anyway).
    -or-
    2) You are trolling for attention via one of the hot buttons of the forum.

    I wouldn't be very proud of myself in either of those cases.

    People mark coins, because it allows you to track where your dump coins are going.. Allowing you to attempt dumping in places where you won't be receiving them back.. From my experiences and I average about 4 boxes a week, it not worth my time.. I have yet to receive a half back.. Now if you are searching as much as Tim, who does more in a week then I do in two months, then I can see why.. I do think Tim is going a little overboard and bringing too much attention to himself, which might lead him to getting cut off .. If you do mark, you should attempt a simple way that will allow you to monitor , but also not have it noticed by the banks or suppliers..

    If you are marking a lot, you could, in some very isolated instances, get some limited information about how your coins move after you dump. You won't know if they moved that way naturally, or if another hunter caused them to move that way.

    If you mark a lot, you are definitely giving your competition more valuable information than you could possibly hope to get out of the deal. You are telling them that you are hunting upstream of them. A savvy hunter seeing a lot of marked coin and a dip in production will move more quickly than if he/she just sees a dip in production. You would be much better off keeping that hunter downstream of you rather than risking him/her moving into your supply stream.

    As with anything that is complex, there are multiple theories. Ask yourself why you would decide to mark. If you are getting good results with your system, you obviously won't change that system based on seeing your mark. If you are having lousy results, you should change your system whether you see your mark or not.

    CRH'er dumps are what stir the pot and allow the public's dumps (the pay dirt) to enter the stream. You are searching dumps every time you search. They are either yours or someone else's. Plan your strategy by results. Don't tip your hand to the competition.

    Haha.. There are definitely a few who do that type of marking in my area.. Unless they are all your Markings.. Although I haven't seen any that write "not silver" on the obverse.. I think they are buffs marks..
