    Which halves do YOU find the most?

    I totaled up my halves by year/type, and here is the distribution of finds by percent:

    Walkers .1%
    Bens 4.2%
    '64 10.2%
    '65 3.0%
    '66 11.4%
    '67 30.5% !
    '68 22.9%
    '69 16.9%
    '70 Nada

    What has been your pattern of finds?

    The clad kind, unfortunately. No seriously to answer the question it's pretty simple. You find more or less or certain years because some years had high mintage numbers and other had low mintage. Areas of the country and mint mark can come into effect but generally not on coins that old.

    Yeah, I thought that too, but somehow there isn't too close a correlation.
