    Any other old timers coming back now with rising silver prices?
    At $20, with my limited dumping options, and expected limited finds, I strongly suspect its still cheaper just to purchase the silver directly. So no, I won't be ordering any boxes anytime soon.

    Yea but very few things beat that feeling of opening a box to to see several enders looking back at you. Get's me pumped just writing it. And it's only cheaper if you factor in time and you should only factor in time if you're going to spend that time making money which is different than saying "could spend that time making money".

    I know NF String is legit sorting out silver now if its rolled at their facility in Harrisburg, and I'm relatively close to them, so that is a concern for me...
    NF String is a manufacturer of coin wrappers, boxes and counters (similar to coin star).

    They are not a coin handling company like Brinks and Dunbar, etc.

    Just a letting you know you don’t have to worry about being close to them since they are just a manufacturing company.

    There’s an Ebay store that deals in large lots of bulk coins, tokens, copper etc. Harrisburg, PA. “Webcoins”, owned by NF String and sons.

    Apparently NF String has been sorting and selling bulk copper cents and silver and misc coins for years now, (since 2013). This has been discussed on other numismatic forums.

    Webcoins even sells large lots of guitar picks and SD cards...what’s that tell you?

    Yep, as much as I was in denial for a couple years, the evidence is beyond obvious. I was doing some digging, don't remember what I found, but I definitely had an "oh ****, it's definitely them" moment. My next thought was "Hey, I wonder if they need a competent numismatist" lol.

    It definitely would be cheaper, assuming things haven't improved over the past few years - which I believe is a very reasonable assumption. Boxes in my area several years ago averaged about 1.25 40%ers per box, with a 75% skunk rate. 4 to 6 boxes weekly would be the maximum I could do due to limited dumping options. Therefore my finds wouldn't come close to paying for gas and wear/tear on my vehicle going back and forth to retrieve boxes and dump rejects. However, I will very much agree that it is definitely more fun to find them than buy them, aside from dumping.

    I'm all about the thrill of the hunt and making some extra money while having fun, that's why I'm willing to get back in when the profitability might not be there.

    That doesn't matter. Either way you're only paying for the silver content. Only thing .999 silver are ASE's.

    Yup! I had no idea. It even says coin processing on their site, lol. I wonder where they get their coins from that they are processing, banks, businesses, both?!

    Lol any Silver before 1964 is 90% Silver and half dollars on and after 1964 are 40%. If you don't want the pre 1964 Half Dollars, I'll take them.

    Close, but not quite. The last year for business strikes 90% was 1964. Halves were 40% from 1965-1970.

    Time for more coffee.

    They have machines in the area. I think they search everything that gets dumped in their machines. They are megasearchers. What a fun job someone has at that company!
