    Wow...I thought my skunk streak of $6000 was tough (it was a single 1966 as well). You have to have a healthy amount of perseverance in this hobby. I breakup the skunky halves with some dime and nickel boxes. It helps to see some kind of silver occaissionnally.

    Congrats on the find!

    wow man those are some rough results, I would move onto something else or change up your strategy, that's a lot of effort for so little return. I guess as long as you enjoy doing it though the return is greater than just a silver coin and maybe you should keep on keepin' on
