    2017: The Strange and Terrible Saga of CRH

    Managed to pick up two boxes of halves yesterday before the banks closed for NYE. Searched one box yesterday, which gave up some silver and counted towards my 2016 silver total.

    Searched the second box today, which gave up seven 40%ers:

    1966 x 2
    1967 x 3
    1968D x 2

    Not a bad way to kick off the new year!

    Happy New Year!

    Picked up a box of halves today on my lunch break from a supermarket branch, walked past the Coinstar as someone was using it.

    On my way back out the door the guy was gone so I checked the reject tray, scored my first free silver of the year: 1964D Roosie!

    All of my dump banks had cut me off back in mid-January, so I had to figure out a new dumping strategy. Now that my plan for dumping is back in place, I can get back to hunting.

    Picked up four boxes of halves yesterday, first time I've searched any coin in almost a month.

    Two boxes were skunks, but the other two gave up four 40%ers between them:

    1966 x 2
    1968D
    1969D

    Feels good to be back in the game.

    I found two credit unions that have coin machines, one of which will accept rolled coin as well. But they are kind of far away from me.

    I opened a new account with Santander Bank, they said they will accept bags of coin. We'll see about that though, because PNC told me the same thing last year but then instituted limits on how many bags per week before disallowing me altogether.

    And finally, I have a friend who is a manager at my local grocery store who said they will accept $500 in halves per week from me.

    Picked up a box of halves + $230 in CWR of halves + $24.50 in loose halves yesterday.

    Skunked on the CWR, but the loose gave up one 40%er: 1967.

    The box of halves gave up two 40%ers:

    1966 x 2

    Thanks, mav! This dumping situation is less than ideal, my volume is just about cut in half. So part of my strategy going forward will be to scout out potential dump banks instead of new pick-up banks.

    Hopefully I can find another super sweet bag-dump situation. Man, I didn't know how good I had it.

    Once I can improve my dumping situation I will then focus on adding more pick-up banks to the mix.

    Picked up two boxes of halves earlier today, both of which gave up silver.

    These were the first two straight-up good boxes that I picked up this year, and they also ended a week-long skunk streak.

    First box had one reverse Bender and gave up twelve keepers total, eight 90%ers and four 40%ers:

    Walkers:
    1934
    1936S
    1939
    1943D

    Bens:
    1949S
    1951D
    1956
    1960D

    1967 x 3
    1968D
