    How much should I start CRH dimes with?

    Wondering since I am new to CRH, how much should I buy with respect to dimes? It sounds fun and I know my kids would get a kick out of it.

    As much as you can afford, are able to get your hands on and/or capable of doing and dumping comfortably.

    Start off small with $50 or $100, establish bank relationships and work your way up to a box of $250... hope this helps

    I usually get a box per bank. Every now and then I'll get two boxes from one bank as long as they have enough to spare. Aside from that, four boxes is about the most I can handle looking through in one sitting. After opening 200 rolls of any type of coin I'm ready for a break, unless I'm finding an insane amount of silver. When I first started I would get one box at a time and search it. That's probably a good amount to start with.

    I know there is no definitive answer but out of 2500 dimes in a $250 box, how many silver may be found. I know the answer may be zero and I'm sure there are fantastic stiries of a handful as well. I think I'll start with $250.

    Am I searching for just 1964 and older? I have read things on different percentages. Any easy explanation on this?

    Wow. I just read quite a bit if the newbie stuff on there. Great info. I'm going dimes first. I read to check for edges only with respect to dimes. Silvers don't have ridges like the clad dimes?

    Incorrect. The coin is the same, the only difference is the metal content. I would suggest you go to your local coin store and buy a few silver dimes to compare and contrast so you know what to look for. Date check until you are 100% comfortable that you arent missing any. You won't become an expert by reading the website, you need to put in the work!

    Thanks Joe777Cool. I have some '64 dimes and quarters at the house. I'll pull them out and look at what you're describing. Just like metal detecting, this will take a fair amount of time and study to become proficient and speedy I'm sure.
