    7/26 Box. Shiny!

    Ok so I get my box, and like so many of us opening presents on Christmas morning, I had to open the box and check the contents right away out in the parking lot. Saw a proof staring up at me.


    Then I found another proof on the end of a roll:


    Got home and went through the box Thursday night.

    Total?

    9 40%


    3 Proofs (1976-S Bicentennial non-silver), 1981-S, 1984-S. Also there were about 30 halves that were SERIUOUSLY BU. Almost Proof-Like would be a good designation. I included 3 in this photo, and accidentally took a flash photo, but it made the non-proofs in the top row appear shinier than in a straight photo, so you can get a better idea of their true appearance. For some reasons regular pics with no flash do not do them justice.


    A clipped planchet. Not a large chunk taken out, but enough to qualify.




    Oh and lastly, you KNOW you are a CRH'er when you have this trash laying on the floor of your vehicle:

    Cool finds, Falcon. BU coins are always a treat. And clipped coins are such a surprise---like someone took a bite out of a cookie. haha. Those proofs look like they are in pretty good shape for being in circulation. Can you see yourself in their reflection?

    WTG MF. Nice haul there. I just love those Frosted Heads on the proofs. That clipped 74 is sweet too! Good job.

    The trash....oh yeah, that is a CRH'er! Although one of those looks like a Popsicle wrapper or something....ha!

    LOVE THE HISTORY AND THE MYSTERY

    I've found that fast food parking lots work in a pinch, if I can't find any better. I hate having to drive and drive and drive just to find a place to open my rolls. Unlike some of you, I can't wait till I get home.

    Thats why I love to have my wife go with me, we can drive and open rolls while the other is going into another bank, plus quicker dumping of rejects as you go
    Ya'll have been posting some great CRH finds keep at it.
    Best Regards, Ray
    Take care of a little and you'll end up with alot

    Aside from the coin collecting and financial-gain aspects of this operation, I can bring a box home, eat dinner, and spend the next 3-4 hours relaxing, watching TV and asking myself "What will be in this one?" 50 times.
