    Timing the Supply

    With the lackluster boxes I have been getting since the beginning of the year, I started to notice an uptick in finds over the last couple of weeks. Since I wanted to up my finds a little I decided to order 40 boxes this past week instead of my usual 16. It certainly paid off pretty well. In total this week I searched 40 boxes of halves, 1 dime box, and 1 quarter box. All the boxes came in, got searched, and got dumped by yesterday.

    Here are the results:

    40% Kennedy's: 71 including a couple oddballs (1970 S in decent shape, 1976 silver business strike, 1976 silver proof)
    1964's: 6
    Franklins: 6
    Walkers: 1
    Mercury Dimes: 1

    Not too bad. It was a lot of running around since I still had to work my full time job this weeks, so I'll probably wait a few weeks before I try this kind of volume again with my current setup.

    Wow thats awesome!

    I did 22 boxes this week and only got a walker, and 3 40%ers...

    I wish I could push for a higher volume than usual, but the banks wont let me :/

    I'm happy as long as I'm finding something. Thanks. It's been an up and down year, but at least I haven't had a total skunk week yet.

    That's rough. I'm sure it will pick up. Keep trying new banks. I see a lot of your dumps so I know you aren't too far away.....

    No complaints here. I'm exhausted, but already starting to plan for the next time that I can do a big volume week. The best thing I learned this week is that one of my regular weekly order banks didn't mind ordering me 12 boxes for the week as a special order. We will see if they will let me do that as my new regular weekly order. It would be awesome to order from only three banks and search 36 boxes a week.

    Awesome number of boxes and great finds. I don't have the dumping infrastructure to pull off 40 boxes. When I do six boxes I just barely get them all dumped without getting cutoff.

    You are no fish anymore.

    Congrats on the great finds. That's a lot of work to get, go thru & than dump. What was the date of the walker & any mint mark? Same with the Franklins. As Rileyboy always said "it's still out there", all you have to do is find it.

    haha. I'm pretty lucky with my dumping setup. I can dump $4k per branch at my dump banks. They have good coin counters and are really cool about it.

    Thanks. It felt like I had a second full time job last week. The walker was 1945 D (nothing special) and one Franklin was a 1948 and I think the rest were in the 60's.
