    2017 - tales of a casual CRHer - log of the adventure

    I was active a couple years ago both on the forum and CRHing, although maybe it was 3 or 4 years ago, time flies.

    This past weekend I decided to see if my bank accounts at 3 different banks, where I had opened them with $10 each, were still active. 2 were not. At the one that was still active I asked about CWR of halves. they had 5. The third bank were I will reopen an account said they would be happy to order rolls of halves for me!

    Anyhow, also got 40 rolls of dimes and some other denominations.

    The dimes were 7 CWR and 33 BWR, skunk on the CWR's but the 33 BWR (Gaurdia) gave me 30 dimes! basically a few skunks but then consistent 1 per roll with some doubles and one triple.

    The halves were interesting since someone had written what I assumed was the dates of the coins on them. AND it was! The 64-69 was solid silver, 17 40% and 3 90% Kennedy's and the 69-72 gave 5 40%

    what a way to start my log, even thought it is late in the year I almost tripled my lifetime count of dimes!

    Just got back from the banks.

    Eastern said that while they will order coins by the box for me including halves, they will not give out CWR's, bank policy

    I went over to TD and got 60 rolls BWR from Gaurdia of dimes and 4 CWR of quarters. Hope the dimes are the same batch as my silver hoard.

    Ben: how are you going to TOP your recent trophy find? I have yet to a full solid roll of Dimes, Halves, or even to the extent of a full roll of Wheaties. Love it. No wonder they call it silver porn, ya just keep getting the pics out over and over again, just to look at them.

    opened the 60 rolls of dimes, skunked. Oh well I can't complain, I have had two big scores, the 2 solid rolls of Walkers and this weekend haul! I have them in tubes on the shelf above my desk so I can look at them every day

    Went to the bank today and got 10 rolls of dimes and 5 CWR cents and 1 CWR quarters, all skunks

    BUT when I went to Subway to get lunch I reached in my pocket to get a dime for the sub, I looked at my change and there was a 1932 Washington in nice shape. I must have gotten it in change at McDonalds the other day.

    Monday
    Went to a bank I just opened an account at because they have a counting machine, after dumping my coins it turned out they charge 3% even to depositors until I turn 65 next year.

    BUT I did ask for halves and they had 18 loose, there were THREE 40% and 1 90% Kennedy!!!

    Never heard of the 65 age rule. I have to keep that in mind, I'm 71.

    Before dinner went to the bank again, TD had no rolled coins at all.

    Went to Citizen's at the supermarket, asked for halves, they had 2 single coins, one was a 40% !

    I also got a bunch of CWR 7 halves, 19 dimes 2 nickels and 12 penny rolls
