    Of the 14 boxes (usually one per week) I've searched in 2019, 9 have been skunks (64%). I'm currently on a 7 box skunk streak.

    Since the beginning of February, with the exception of a solitary 40% silver found in a box around Valentine's day, the only silvers (3 @ 40%) I've found have come from tellers.

    January was pretty good. I suspect it was correlated with holiday bill payments and the need for cash from all sources.

    I searched 2-4 boxes of halves weekly for a little over 2 years. My skunk box percentage was almost a perfect 75% if memory serves me correctly. I also tried to mix in some dimes, but had 55 skunks out of 60 boxes, so I scrapped that idea fairly quickly. This was in ~2010-2012.

    I record everything. In 2018, we searched 68 boxes of halves, of which 30 (44%) were skunks. That didn't seem bad and there were no long skunk streaks. This year has been much worse. Of 63 boxes searched in 2019, 43 (68%) have been skunks. I had one 25 box skunk streak. Have only started to search dime boxes but all 3 were skunks. We are cutting back from 4 boxes/week to 2.

    Our experience 500 or so miles south of you has been the same pattern. My wife had one box in january that was more than the rest of our boxes for the year. She is competitive and crushing me. Since January, it has been very slim pickings.

    Meg - Skunk streaks might be more prevalent today, but everything wasn't all roses years ago. I had good fortune. But the oldtimers will remember SilverCop's skunk streak. He was a large volume hunter at 20 boxes a week. He went through one of the longest skunk streaks especially considering his volume. There were a few months that had passed where not a single 40%'er was culled from his boxes.

    Traveling right now so can’t check my spreadsheet for skunk percentage. I do know that my silver half dollar recovery rate is 0.58%, or just under 6 silvers per box. This is from all sources (boxes, CWRs, teller trays, coin machine bags). This is the overall rate since I start CRH in Jan - 2017.
