    A final thought, how many newbies first get interested in CRHing by tracking down Treasure Net and reading posts versus watching Youtube videos?

    I think we need to shut down the youtube videos, maybe by trolling them and turning them into Youtube as inappropriate adn getting them pulled?

    I could be wrong but I think youtube or facebook is a bigger force in CRHing than treasure net.

    It's fun to try 'bringing down the house,' if you know what I mean.

    I think most of us are in it for the fun and enjoyment. I am putting together several coin books that will never be worth more than face. You can buy junk silver with the money you spend on CRHing

    BUT that being said to me it is the thrill of the hunt, I feel like Indiana Jones especially when I find silver. STILL LOOKING for a rotated half...
    Back when silver prices where over $25/ozt I supported myself for a couple years almost solely from CRH. Lots of volume and still a good supply. That would be MUCH harder today as the price is low and finds are fewer. And the thing that makes it hardest is TD not having the machines anymore.

    I don't like to take the time to rollem. I have opened accounts at 8 banks with multiple branches all with coin counters, I prefer dumping them that way.

    got 4 boxes of halves supposed to be tomorrow but the weather says maybe not. I did get TD to order 4 boxes but they were not happy as they had to do a special order. I may try the Foxboro or Wrentham branch

    What sorts of MA banks have counters that take halves with bag changes larger that $100?

    How often did you dump there? I try to spread my dumps over 25 banks with CC's, and don't like to hit a bank more than once a month.

    Why not romanticize it? It's a fun and exciting hobby and there is nothing better than finding a dream box or a collection dump. What is the concern, that people hear how great it is, try it, realize you typically find nothing and quit? You don't need to explain to newcomers that skunks are out there. They will find that out if they are inspired enough to give it a go.

    The thing you are most wrong about, among many, is that it is a good idea to sabotage other people's enjoyment from this hobby to give yourself an infinitely small edge in your next hunt. The biggest enemy of this hobby/community is not the exuberance of the newbies - it is greed and in this case, malice.
