    Dimes
    Box 1: 1964 80% Ag (CAN)

    Big day today...This morning, I received my Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering for my work over the past year and a half. Quite the accomplishment for me since I never wanted to go to college to begin with! This afternoon, I concluded my CRHing in the area by picking up my final box. Glad to see it wasn't a skunk.

    Well, the Ohio hunt is over. I am at my next duty station, living out of a suitcase with my now 3 month pregnant wife and our 1.5 year old daughter. Might be a few months before we can get into a house with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Had a great time hunting Ohio...so much history there! I will miss my tellers and vault managers. Many of them were sad to see me go, but at the same time I'm sure a few of them were glad to be done with all the dimes! I picked the hunt back up on 24 Jun 2019 after we took a family 17-road trip that included a trip to the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The tour was pretty standard, but it really got me thinking about CRHing again. I had previously hunted for 11 months in 2013 and found 39 of 48 coins in the 1946-64 set. I decided to once again try to complete my FDR set. Just three days into the Ohio hunt, I was able to find FDR #40: the 1948S! I needed that one. I have often wondered if I had not found that Most Wanted coin as early on as I did, would I have been able to mentally withstand the 90-day drought that would follow without quitting. If I had to be honest with myself, I think I would have cracked. Finding that coin fueled what would turn out to be a very aggressive 9-month hunt. From Jun 2019-Mar 2020, I was able to find seven of the remaining nine Most Wanted Dimes, with only the '55D and the '54S escaping my grasp. I was able to grow my merc collection from 17 to 29 unique dates: 16S, 18, 23, 27, 28, 30, 35, 36PD, 37PD, 38, 39D, 40PS, 41PD, 42PDS-45PDS. Took my haircut dime collection from 0 to 3: 1901, 1904, 1914. I was very much looking forward to attempting my "10K in a Week Challenge", but with all the banks closing down, I didn't really have much of an option. The week I had targeted ended up seeing a dime volume of $750! Can't predict global pandemics! I ended up having to take 10.5 boxes with me when we moved. The hunt will be paused for a few months until we find a house...and even after that, I won't be able to conduct the operation I had going in Ohio. Heck, I don't even know if my new location has coin counters! We'll see what happens. I leave you with a quote from myself as stated on 12 Aug 2019.

    HH,

As of today, I am currently at 441, so I've got some work to do. I'm further motivated by the fact that I just received another assignment with a report date of April 2020! The assignment I'm in right now is very favorable to me being available during banking hours. My next assignment (like my last one) will likely not be. I'd like to find as much as I can between now and April, but I'm keenly aware of the fact that despite my best efforts, I will likely leave this place in a similar spot to GMan - with a couple FDRs yet to find.
    ...I'm now at 923 FDRs found All-Time.

    No matter when or where your next search opportunity arises, we'll be waiting to cheer you on to completion.

    2013 was part 1, 2019-2020 the sequel and I'm sure you got a trilogy in ya. A trio of dime novels, if you will.

    Best of luck to you and your family Sleepy! Be safe.
