    Yes, same here - except the boxes are clearly not machine rolled. Every roll is either opened and re-wrapped or slit along the side. To me, this is even worse than regular skunks because there is no suspense involved - we know the rolls are someone's rejects. Interesting, out of 8 such boxes, one sliced roll produced a single 40% half - missed by the slicing edge hunter because it was hiding under the paper crimp.


    Always do right; this will gratify some and astonish the rest.

    That's an excellent price to put some silver away at very little risk.

    Got two boxes today, opened them to look for enders, found only one, but that is ok as I haven't had an ender in about 5 months.

    1967 ender, I am planning to hang onto the coins until Sunday when I will go through them during the golf tourney and then while the Patriots win the Superbowl and then return them on Monday Tuesday

    I love the enders. I think it is the suggestion that more may be hidden within. My wife got a Franklin reverse ender last night but neither of us thought to take a pic. Next time.

    There's always something exciting and special at finding an ENDER first. Maybe it's a sign of better things inside.

    The ender was a hint!! 14 40% and 3 90% including a Benji, ALSO a 2 headed 1964, not silver I think. At first I thought I had 4 90% boo But my first Ben for this year





    Two 40% in this roll
