    Working my 3rd box of halves, first two were skunks. I am antsy to see if there is any silver. Normally I opened each roll with a wirecutter taking the rolls off and then unrolling it, checking for silver then as I check each coin I look for missing FG's double dies and other errors.
    But for the first time I cracked each roll and looked for obvious silver and then went to the next roll... I will go through them carefully tonight.

    Anyone I found 1 40% 1968D so not a skunk but not great.

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 stack the dump coins on my desk in stacks of 20. When I have the amount stacked that I want - usually $400, I sweep them into a plastic container. When I dump at the bank, I know exactly how many coins I have. There are 3 different models of coin machines at my dump banks. Some can receive coins dumped quickly while others require feeding so slowly that I dump from my jar into my hand and slowly onto the belt. The count has nearly always been right on the money - but occasionally I'll get a penny or dime left over in the machine from the previous dump. Even though I'm only dumping halves, I also get occasional lower denominations in the reject bin from previous dumps.

    Glad I finished the boxes this morning I came down with the flu or something about noon. feeling like crap, BUT I ordered 4 boxes - 2 from one bank and 2 from my usual, they both thanked me for ordering. Also my new pickup bank had already placed the order and are going to redo it to include my order
    More cookies heading to them!

    Hope you feel better soon, Ben! I get my flu shot "just in case" and it comes with a 10% off coupon for groceries at my Safeway. On the way out, I sometimes find silver in the coinstar.

    Some silver in those new boxes may be just the remedy you need! Did you see the pics of my 99 silver coin haul last week? ("pre-football score" thread) Wishing you the same!

    Was gone in 24 hours so I don't think it was the flu, probably just dehydrated.

    4 boxes of halves coming tomorrow

    Glad you're feeling better. Hope your boxes are better than my 2 tonight. Went from 99 silver halves on saturday to 0 tonight. Such a strange, unpredictable hobby !

    Seems like it is feast or famine, skunk after skunk then finally 1 40% and then more skunks, and hopefully sometime a dump

    Cracked the first two boxes (still waiting on the other two) looks like two skunks, no obvious silver. Now will go through them for my Coin Collection, proofs, and errors.

    Tired of searching other peoples dumps. One of the halves was written on in red sharpie "Silver is gone" and over half the coins are marked with at least 3 different marks so different hunters

    Yup. My wife had a box last week in which 78% were marked. Some entire rolls were marked. Expecting the worst, the next two boxes produced 99 silver halves. Then 4 skunk boxes in a row. Totally unpredictable.

    Someone dumped a collection of HSN coins, 49 of them. They were all in the center rolls of the box.

    4 more boxes of halves, 40% of them no reeded edges.

    Was getting discouraged, no silver since the first box the first days of January.

    Found a 1968 D 40% in the 4th box.
