    CC Hunter's CRH Log

    Thought I would add one more log to the site in case folks want to see how another CRHer is doing. I'm admittedly a low-volume CRHer of halves. I'll check my change, coin machine reject trays, etc. for other coins worth keeping, but my efforts have been focused on halves. I just started this a little over a month ago, although I've collected coins for much longer.

    Here are my results:

    Type Amount # Coins 40% 90% Total Ag
    Box $500 1000 0 0 0
    Loose $2 4 0 0 0
    Loose $4 8 0 1 1
    Loose $2.50 5 0 0 0
    MWR $30 60 0 0 0
    Box $500 1000 0 1 1
    Loose $0.50 1 0 0 0
    MWR $30 60 0 0 0
    Loose $6.50 13 0 0 0
    MWR $10 20 0 0 0

    Totals $1,085 2171 0 2 2

    So, two '64 Kennedys to show for my efforts so far. I'm picking up another box this Friday from a different bank. The boxes seem like a lot of effort for little gain these days, so I may focus more on halves that banks have on hand (MWR, CWR, loose); we'll see.

    The formatting went out when I posted the table. I'll try to fix it later.

    This may be easier than the table:

    Boxes: 2 $500 boxes searched, 1 90% Kennedy half found
    MWRs: 7 $10 rolls searched, all skunks
    Loose teller halves: $15.50 searched, 1 90% Kennedy half found

    Total of $1,085.50 searched, 2 90% Kennedy halves found.

    I'm not counting the halves I kept to fill out an album, including some NIFCs and a 1976 clad proof.

    Great finds! 90%s are great, you can make $12 on them compared to $4.50 on 40%s, so they are almost three times as valuable.

    Picked up a new box of halves on Friday and went through it over the weekend. Results: four 4 40% halves, plus two clad proofs ('87 and '03) and at least one NIFC I didn't previously have.

    My previous totals omitted a box (a skunk I was trying to forget about, no doubt). Here's the updated silver total reflecting the missed box and Friday's box:

    Boxes: 4 $500 boxes searched, 1 90% Kennedy and 4 40% kennedy halves found
    MWRs: 7 $10 rolls searched, all skunks
    Loose teller halves: $15.50 searched, 1 90% Kennedy half found

    Total of $2,085.50 searched, 2 90% and 4 40% Kennedy halves found.

    No big silver numbers, but the low volume hasn't put me out much either.

    It's nice that you were able to pull silver. It seems we both average about the same. Have you come across loose MWRs? I had a pair of boxes last week from Brinks that had loose rolls in there. The boxes were sealed and stamped but it felt shady to me.

    It's funny you mention that. I thought that the crimping on a lot of rolls was sloppier that I've seen in my other boxes, and I think the other boxes all came from the same source since they were identical in terms of yellow and white String rolls and brown and yellow flat String boxes. One of my other boxes even had the same "4015" stamp as this box.

    I wouldn't say the ends were as loose as the rolls I re-wrap (I unroll the crimping on one end, push the coins out, put the skunks back in and just fold the loose ends over), but they definitely were not "tight" crimps. I was wondering whether anyone tries to re-crimp ends short of a clean machine crimping. Not sure why anyone would bother.

    Unless the couriers are stealing our silver!!! j/k I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed. We talked once before and you're in the DC/NOVA area right?

    A little more CRHing around my office yesterday. One bank had no halves, one had one clad and another, which always seems to have a few MWR at each teller window, sold me three MWRs. The MWRs at this particular bank are always skunks, but I like to tell myself that I am working through a box they had. The rolls are indentical to the yellow and white String rolls that come in my boxes.

    So, I'll add $31 to my searched total.

    Picked up a box of halves late last week. The head teller is used to me know but seemed to take a long time retrieving the box from the back. It seems to always take a long time even though I think I'm the only one who orders halves at this branch and the place is not that busy - not sure what she is doing. Anyway, while I was waiting another teller asked what I was doing with all those halves. I told he about collecting, etc. and she asked me if I ever find silver. I told her "hardly at all, but there's other coins I need to complete my collection, etc.". She said that in all her time at the bank she has only seen one silver coin - a beat up quarter. She said she kept it because it was silver and went on to talk about how silver coins look and sound different - guess I won't be finding any customer silver at this branch.

    Anyway, the latest box was a terrible skunk. No silver, one clad proof and nothing else of interest at all.

    Updated totals:

    Boxes: 5 $500 boxes searched, 1 90% Kennedy and 4 40% kennedy halves found
    MWRs: 10 $10 rolls searched, all skunks
    Loose teller halves: $16.00 searched, 1 90% Kennedy half found

    Total of $2,616 searched, 2 90% and 4 40% Kennedy halves found.

    I decided to try some coins other than halves and picked up a bunch of CWRs from a friendly branch last Friday. I probably will continue to focus on halves but will delve into other coins that are CWRs from time to time. Results as follows:

    Quarters: $60, all skunk (was even shorted by the inclusion of a "no cash value" token and a UK 5 pence)
    Dimes: $55, one Rosie ('60)
    Nickels: $24, all skunk
    Pennies: $17. I'm not really into pennies but wouldn't mind finding Indians or old wheats. I found about 10 wheats (none older than the 30's, I recall) and 20-25% of the pennies were copper. At least 3 penny rolls had a clad dime in them, so it helped me with being shorted on quarters.

    All in all not very exciting. If I ask a bank for CWRs I'll continue to take all they will give me, but probably won't spend too much time searching nickels and pennies going forward - I'll just dump them. I'll search the dimes and quarters for the timing being, but my focus will be on halves. Picking up another box today.

    Walked around the neighborhood of my office today looking for halves that branches might have on hand. No luck finding any until I went to a branch that always seems to have some MWRs on hand. Someone on this board previously said that I am probably just working my way through a box the branch had. Anyway, these MWRs have always been skunks. Today was no different - two rolls with no Ag, no NIFCs, no proofs, nothing. Oh well, didn't take much time or money. I have a box order that's been delayed by the storm but should be in by tomorrow. Updated totals for halves:

    Boxes: 5 $500 boxes searched, 1 90% Kennedy and 4 40% kennedy halves found
    MWRs: 12 $10 rolls searched, all skunks
    Loose teller halves: $16.00 searched, 1 90% Kennedy half found

    Total of $2,636 searched, 2 90% and 4 40% Kennedy halves found.

    Sandy disrupted some coin deliveries and I did not end up with any boxes last week. I try to do a box per week (low volume, I know, but that's how I roll). As a result of the storm, I will receive two boxes this week. If those boxes make me happy I may up my volume going forward, but I don't feel like searching through multiple skunk boxes each week. For me that would be too depressing.

    Tried to make up for the lack of boxes by hitting up tellers for halves. One teller told me that someone had just come by and cleared her out of $8.50 in halves - bad timing for me! When I started this I didn't think I would have a lot of competition, but now it's very clear that people are searching for silver at almost all of the banks I go to (and, if not, the tellers are).

    No luck finding any halves at other branches on Friday. On Saturday I found a teller who just started the job. He had $3.50 in halves (all clad) and I spied an Ike in his tray ('74 D, also clad, I believe). All in all last week was a bust for silver. In addition to the Ike, I picked up some wheats (oldest was '29), lots of copper pennies, and some state/national park quarters that I didn't have yet. To keep up my spirits I bought a silver quarter ('36) off ebay - overpaid for it but then used $2+ "ebay bucks" against it and end up getting the quarter for $4.

    Looking forward to my two boxes this week. Current totals:

    Boxes: 5 $500 boxes searched, 1 90% Kennedy and 4 40% kennedy halves found
    MWRs: 12 $10 rolls searched, all skunks
    Loose teller halves: $19.50 searched, 1 90% Kennedy half found (I may have forgotten to record some loose halves here and there that I found in small amounts, but they were clad).

    Total of $2,640 searched, 2 90% and 4 40% Kennedy halves found.
