Those were the first boxes that I searched in a couple of years. I still buy halves occasionally when on road trips for work. Finds have been meager so I don’t post. I got a lonely 40%er yesterday in $200.

    Kindest regards,

    Nice to see you still here!

    I'm still around and still pretty thrilled with CRH , I haven't done as many boxes of half dollars lately - I have been having fun with pennies, but I hope to begin halfs again soon ,and the occasional dime box too .

    I stopped CRH around senior year HS. A bit later started going to coin and gold shops to look at their junk bins, had a goal of getting a coin from every country. I didn't do half bad in that respect.

    I really fell in favor with the foreign collecting but the time has passed even for that, maybe again when there's time. This was the place I hung out at when I was a kid, crazy to read those old messages.

    I got most of my foreign at yardsales. When I lived in SoCA (100 miles north of mexico) I would get more Canadian and Japanese coins than pesos. I did get a very old mexican copper in CRH ing at a local bank. Here is an ebay auction where I was selling a lot of my yardsale finds. All foreign.

    Cyberdan, have to ask with that box of coins was it easy to sell on Ebay and worth the time and effort collecting them. I see boxes, bags and small piles of foreign coins at some garage sales and estate sales and always walk by them. Figured I had no knowledge of what they are worth piece by piece but maybe a pile of them might be worth trying?

    At yard sales I would always ask if they had old coins. I never said american or silver. Many time they would run in and bring out an old little jar or box. I would point out all the u.S. and mention the others were pretty worthless. I would make an offer and if they liked it they got paid. My offer was mostly made on the U.S. silver. The foreign just got thrown in that green tool box. That is 3-4 years of accumulation. There are several pieces of paper money there. I evened it out into 6 or 7 auctions (handful of coins and 1 paper bill) sold all, easy on ebay. That was my lead photo. I didn't promise anything except "foreign coins and a paper note". The foreign cost very little. Still have a lot of canadian somewhere. I kept the Japanese yen. I go there every few years.

    Been active CRH off and on since Ď77.
    Stopped around 2014 due to excessive bank maintainance fees not related to box/coin purchases.
    Found two silver quarters in change this year and a silver Rosie yesterday.
    300+ silvers via dirtfishing since 2010.

    Edit: really miss it sometimes.

    I'm still here .I never really posted a lot .I'm still detecting but not finding anything earthshaking enough to post . I miss a lot of the folks who are no longer posting here . I wonder how Spartacus is doing ? I used to enjoy his sense of humor .

    I used to do really well coin roll hunting halves but I gave that up after everyone and their brother started doing it ( especially the bank tellers ) . I never pass up a Coinstar without checking it out and have done pretty well but the pickings there are getting rarer also . Between being confined indoors by the previous unhealthy smoke from the wildfires and now the rain and baby sitting I haven't gotten out to detect in a while .I'm looking forward to getting out again , hopefully soon . Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all !

    Still at it but a bit quieter on the board. Not buying as many boxes as I used to but still enjoying it. Occasional finds keep coming in to make it interesting. Got two solid rolls of 40% yesterday so it still is out there. Look forward to $50 an ounce again...
