    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Picked up my 6 boxes this morning. First box was loaded with BU 1993s, but one looked jusssst a little different than the rest.

    It was the only one in the first box, but I'm happy to see it.

    5 boxes left to do then it's on to the 2 bags of quarters and 1 bag of dimes. Here's hoping for a shiny weekend!

    Happy hunting all!

    Phew! Thatís some tenacity keeping the search up after 24 skunk boxes! Hope your new good luck streak continues Meg!

    Dumping all these skunks is taking time better spent swinging a detector - so we'll be cutting way back on the skunk box hunting. Cancelling my standing orders and will just do the occasional orders - and really just to check in with tellers and ask for loose halves. Will look forward to seeing your positive results!

    We had one good haul of two boxes this year - on jan. 12 when those two boxes gave up 99 silver halves. then something changed and we started getting solid boxes of all new rolls, short rolls, rolls with British pennies and 2-pence coppers, high percentage marked etc. It also appears that we are getting re-wrapped and taped edge hunted rolls in boxes and MWRs of coins from edge hunters - since the very few silvers other than the one big day, all have dark or coppery edges and would be missed by the edge hunters.

    I'm cancelling my standing orders and will go to occasional box orders mainly just to maintain contact with and check my tellers for loose halves.

    Coin roll hunting

    Slim pickings so far this year

    You guys that concentrate solely on halves have more patience with the skunks than I do within the dimes. Dimes are drying up like the summer drought, and a new HYBRID OF SKUNKS is coming. I'm going to need a pick me up, soon. Good luck to the HALF GUYS, and HH.
    That white rim 64-half all by itself is so reassuring to the hobby. TKS for showing that it's still out there.
