    Tell me about it, so far this month I'm running 50% skunks, and about an avg/box at .8. Going to be a BAD year stacking at this rate.

    Last year was my bad year. My goal, as it alway has been, is to pull 100 ozt. of silver out of circulation. Last year I got 50 ozt., so if I can get any amount over that it'll certainly be a better year but not necessrily a good one.

    Picked up $229 in Ikes + $40 in CWR of halves + $12 in loose halves yesterday.

    Skunked on the Ikes, not even any varieties or errors in the mix. Also skunked on the CWR of halves.

    The loose halves gave up one 40%er: 1967.

    Picked up two boxes of halves yesterday, one of which was a repacked dump and ultimately a skunk.

    The other box gave up two 40%ers:

    I believe that one 40% half is equivalent to just a little two silver dimes. Maybe that's why I stick to searching dimes, otherwise I couldn't take the skunk rejection that you guys face. However, just one 90% half would equal 10-Rosies. Ya got me there guys.

    Dozer the advantage you have is that 50 lbs of dimes weighs less than 50 pounds of halves or at least so it seems to me when getting a bag of each.

    Halves are easier to check for errors!

    Ben: and the NUMBERS ARE BIGGER to see. How do you figure, 50 lbs is 50 pounds., just like feathers vs boulders. HaHa, I get your point. I've never really gotten into errors.

    The two boxes of halves that I picked up on Friday gave up three 40%ers between them:

    1967
    1968D x 2

    Also picked up a box of dimes over the weekend that gave up one Roosie: 1962D.

    Isn't it sad in a way that we get so excited over a single dime or a single 40% in a box?

    It is alot like metal detecting, you never know what you will find, but usually less than you would like
