    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?

    '65 is the year I've found the least of.

    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.

    I was just kidding when I said this, hence the "JK". I would never trade in a coin for face when it had silver value. I was just implying that 1 million halves it a lot of money on its own.

    while I keep track of all years (silver only), right now my spreadsheet is not set up to easily quantify the dates, since I have them as a post-it note over the cell with the total number of 40%ers or 90%ers. But, I can say that by far 67s are the most common, and 1970 is rarer than bens or walkers (I've found 1). My ben to walker ratio is not as high as yours, maybe 3-4 bens for 1 walker. 65s yep are tough to find, probably followed by 66s in the 40% category

    Actually, our Bens/Walkers ratios are pretty similar. I am at 5 Bens to 1 Walker. The funny thing is that in over a year of CRHing, I've found all my Walkers within the last 3 weeks. The one I found this weekend had a big hole drilled in the bottom! Why oh why did people do that?

    40%s are the most common obviously, because much of the general public only knows pre 64 is silver
    Roll search stats:
    1. Half Dollars
      $2,000 Searched, 2 40%ers
    2. Quarters
      $90 Searched, 0 Finds
    3. Dimes
      $70 Searched, 1 Rosy
    4. Nickels
      $328 Searched, 4 War nickels, 1 Liberty Nickel, 1 dateless Buffalo
    5. Pennies
      $29 Searched, 5 wheats
