    Just got back from the bank with two of my 4 boxes, get the other two tomorrow at a different bank. All are Loomis, one of the boxes is tapped shut so we will see what is in it.

    as I turned in my dimes at the counter I asked for Large Dollars and they had 18 of them, nothing interesting but I will sell them for $3 each at the gun show

    2019 - The Silver also rises

    Picked up a lonely1943-p Std Lib half out of 4-rolls from a teller when I picked up some dime boxes. Maybe the Xmas silver is actually flowing, but I'm sure it will be short lived.
    P.S. Thanks again for running this post as the 2019 silver finds, just like your 2018 log.

    I was thinking that the obverse and a reverse of two Buffalo's would make a nice set of earings, will try it out (although I won't wear them)

    ran the first box of halves today, total Skunk.

    Working the 2nd tomorrow and getting two more boxes tomorrow morning

    Returned my dimes from the $1000 dime bag to 3 different banks coiunters.

    I ended up with $979.

    I took 7 SILVER dimes out and probably dropped at least 3 under my desk, that means it should have been $999. There were a bunch of pennies, probably 20 or so, so call it $998

    SO either the bag is short or the counters are wrong. I don't dump where I get bags or boxes so ...

    My feeling is that it could be a combination of both.

    2nd box another skunk.

    3rd box is a non-Loomis box first one I have had in a long time, I went to a different bank for boxes 3 and 4, they gave me a non-Loomis and a Loomis, When I call on Monday I will order 2-4 boxes and ask if they can ask for courier for any of the smaller square non-Loomis boxes OR WHETHER I should just take what they get me...
    Probably should just take what I can get this time and then if they are both the yellow Loomis boxes I will ask for the following week...

    ANYHOW - hit it pretty good in the non-Loomis box

    I just dumped some coins that I put x amount from the rolls I opened, the first can should have counted $265.00 and the second $165.00, two different banks. The first gave me $264.00 and the second 166.50 I think the rolls from the courier, BWR, were off. I have found in some boxes rolls with 21 halves and also in the same box 18 or 19 halves, usually evens out.

    For the next can I will count every roll. And the next dime bag the same, make sure of the count before cashing then check the machine.

    I am starting to research jewelry making as my wife doesn't wear any, except shinny broaches. I am practicing cutting out the entire design, i.e. leaving only the Mercury head and cutting out the fields leaving the head and rim etc.

    I think the main thing is how to attach it to the cuff link or ear stud. In a quick google search I find a lot of women (and men) wear these loopy things that go through the pierced ear and then have a ring that attaches to the earring object, that is easy.

    Also cuff links I think it would be the same a how I made broaches for the wife, simply attach (epoxy ??) the object (coin) to the link

    Dozer here are some of the coins I am going to practice cutting up. The half and Buffalos are for scale, the Buffs will get cut up but not the 1969

    Ben: if you cut on the buff nic., what side would be the visible facing jewelry side, the Indian profile or the buffalo standing tall? Will be some very small fine cuttings, keep me posted on your progress.

    I think that I have just as many dateless SLQ's as dateless Buffaloes. When do you plan on cutting up an ASE, yeah right.
