    90% Ag coins
    10 cents: 0.0723 oz
    25 cents: 0.1808 oz
    50 cents: 0.3617 oz
    01 dollar: 0.7735 oz

    The silver coins were the size they were based on the amount of silver in them. That's why the dime is so small and the dollar was so large. Therefore, you can calculate how much more silver is in a coin based on their face value. A half has roughly 5 times as much silver as a dime and a dollar coin has roughly 10 times as much silver.

    We only wish a 90% half is equal to 10 rosies!

    My mistake, should be 5-Rosies per 90% half., maybe I was thinking silver dollar. Oops.

    Picked up a box of halves + three boxes of dimes yesterday.

    Skunked on the halves and skunked on two of the boxes of dimes.

    The last box of dimes gave up three Roosies:

    1953
    1964D

    Lots of skunk boxes this week, both dimes and halves.

    Didn't have any boxes to pick up yesterday, but managed to find $100 in CWR of halves at a small credit union that I haven't visited in a long time.

    I call this small credit union to check for halves or Ikes once a week and they usually never have anything, but this time they did.

    I pulled ten keepers out of the $100 in CWRs, one 90%er and nine 40%ers:

    1964
    1967 x 4
    1968D x 2
    1969D x 3

    Thanks!

    Barely back on that horse though, only one of my pick-up banks has agreed to start ordering halves again. Originally had two banks tell me they would start ordering, but one of them changed their mind.

    TD Banks around me are all closed too.

    Are you back in the game yet or no?

    Not yet... My dump lobbies just opened back up so I was able to get rid of what I was stuck sitting on since March.

    With the "shortages" going on, all of the suppliers in my area are being disrupted or are at least irregular so I don't really want to bug my pickups until things kind of even out. My dumps also mentioned that their couriers haven't been back yet to pick up bags since they opened so they're actually running out of room to store them and I don't want to add to that problem.

    That, and I don't want to be sitting on a hill of halves again if things suddenly shut back down. I am considering going on a drive in a couple weeks if lobbies start to open back up, though with the coin shortage who knows if banks will want to even sell me halves if they have them, esp if I don't have an acct.

    No rush for now, but eager to get back in for sure!
