    I love finding 90% good going on your box! When I first read it I thought you found 43 WalkerS and 64 KennedyS as in that many, wouldn't that be great

    I am going to report of my latest bag of quarters separately. I have made comments about quarters how they are very hard to find in boxes and even in rolls. up till the current coin counter bag I have only found an average of 1 quarter per bag (3 bags 3 quarters) got 2 bags yesterday, first bag 2 silver. this bag I could see 2 silver through the bag but no others. Someone must have dumped silver because I am finding quarters.

    I only got the bags because I messed up ordering my halves and wasn't getting any in this week.

    Good job on the finds, guys!

    I picked up two boxes of halves before the snowstorm hit, one of which was a skunk. The other box gave up three keepers, two 90%ers and one 40%er:

    1953D Ben
    1963D Ben
    1967

    sometimes I get to wondering if it is worth it with the scant pickings. If it costs $2 in gas to pick up a couple boxes and $2 in gas to take them to the dump bank you could get a 40% and a Mercury for that.

    I just got two boxes of halves, Loomis, haven't opened them yet

    All hobbies cost money. I'm a big "thrill of the hunt" kind of guy, so that's what is fun about this hobby for me. Just like with metal detecting or buying scratch-off tickets from the lottery, both of which I also do.

    Of course, a big score or some rare find is awesome and makes it all worth it to me. Just like a big win on a scratch-off makes all those losing tickets seem worth it.

    Picked up two boxes of halves + $200 in CWR of dimes yesterday.

    One of the boxes was a skunk, but the other gave up one 90%er:

    1941 Walker

    Attachment 1574401

    Yep, that ender was the only silver in the box.

    The dimes gave up one Roosie: 1956.

    The way I keep the "thrill of the hunt" going is to be filling in a Dansco halves album so even regular coins are checked and NIFC's are a thrill. I also do the same for nickels but don't do them that often
