    Wonderful pull of silver, but I don't think you could get credit as a Dream Box. Three years ago I had 98-silvers I one box (65-mercs, 33-Rosies), but the rest of the TN guys claimed it has to be 100. I considered it as my Dream box, still recall the event to this day. You'll never forget yours either.

    I know halves are 100; never got a dime box like this!

    For me, what you got would qualify as a dream box.

    No question in my mind that this is a dream box. Consider that you probably average 1 or maybe 2 silvers per box, and you got 22, including a Barber.

    I consider any bag with more than one silver good, so yeah, that's definitely dreamy...

    For BANK/Currier rolled dimes, this should qualify as a dream box. You simply don't find 20+ dimes in a box. I've done hundreds of dime boxes and my best was 7, I believe. In comparison, I've had probably 15 half boxes with 20 plus silvers, including 2 boxes with over 200 keepers.

    Dozer, your box was a dream box....period. I may not have had that perspective at one point but you can't compare dimes to halves.

    I haven't looked but I bet you'd find very few posts on this forum that claim to have found a 20+ silver dime box in the last 10 years.

    Theoretically, there should be several more boxes like it in our market.

    I guess that's why they call it a DREAM BOX, makes other people dream about your Dream Box findings.
