    LOL. Hopefully not this sunday. I have to live with a die-hard Pats fan who will be watching in her Brady jersey.

    Good for the finds. One of my banks called me last night to let me know that there are 2 boxes there for me.

    CRH
    I CRH with my 10 year old daughter. We just started in December after watching Quin's videos. We've moved from pennies to halves. In the pennies, we would get 4-5 wheats and 4-5 2009's per box. 1st halve box was a 100% skunk. However, she used some of them to complete her book of halves. 2nd box, she found 3 Bens 1952 D, 1958 D, and 1962 D so not a total disappointment. I'm probably going to take the previous posted advice and spread out a little on banks. Right now, I'm using the same bank, but they're extremely helpful and friendly so I have some loyalty there.

    I hope you're not dumping at that same bank. Btw, 3 Bens is not a disappointment at all!

    Welcome to tnet!

    In 68 boxes searched in 2018, we found three Franklin halves in only one box.

    I've done a lot of business at my pick-up bank and they are very friendly and helpful - but to keep it that way, I never dump my rejects there (and they told me they appreciate that) .

    Deuce: I hope you & daughter keep searching together for years to come. She will remember this 50 years from now and tell her own kids what she & dad did as a joint hobby. Congrats, not on your findings, but on your BONDING with your daughter. I just wish I had that happen to me when my own kids were young. Coins will always be there as the THRILL OF THE HUNT, but memories are hard to come by. Now, GO FIND SOME MEMORIES.
