    How is it that walkers always seem to be enders?

    Been picking up one box of halves per week for the last month-and-a-half, they've all been skunks.

    Picked up a box over the weekend and it had a pretty neat ender:

    That tavern is about 90 miles from me, maybe I'll take a ride and see if I can get that bottle of beer once things return to normal.

    This week's box of halves gave up four silvers and a neat, albeit ugly, clad modern commemorative.

    All four silvers were 90%ers:

    1945 Walker
    1957D Ben
    1962D Ben
    1964

    Tossed the clad commemorative back for the next guy, I've already got an uncirculated 1994D and it's just a straight up ugly coin.

    Been about a month since I've found any silver, although skunk streaks aren't as painful when you only can get one box of halves per week.

    Picked up a box of halves over the weekend that gave up eleven keepers, two 90%ers and nine 40%ers:

    1964 x 2
    1965 x 2
    1967 x 4
    1968D x 2
    1969D

    Boxes of halves have been absolutely skunky for me the last month+.

    But, I got a nice early Christmas present yesterday.

    Got a text from my girlfriend late yesterday, who is the head teller at her branch, that said an older lady brought in $30 in halves + $2 in Ikes. She said she bought 'em off of her and then sends me this:

    1968D x 16
    1969D x 3

    Real nice haul. It helps to have an inside "man".

    I picked up my weekly (skunk) box of halves yesterday and the teller asked me if I wanted the $14.50 in halves he had. I answered without hesitation, "Yes". I paid for them and he was going to try to put them in a paper envelope but I asked him to just dump them into my small bag.

    When I got home, I examined the coins and found a 1980 Mexican 1 peso piece and three 40% silver Kennedys, so all was not lost.

    Finally getting around to my year-end tally...

    This has been a weird year, I'm sure everyone can agree. I only had one long-ish skunk streak, which wasn't even that long compared to past years. But, there were fourteen weeks that I did absolutely zero hunting because of the lockdown. That hurt a lot.

    However, the silver still trickled in and there still were a few highlights. And I still added to the stack, so it's all good.

    I picked up a total of 63 boxes of halves + $5,040.00 in CWR and loose halves. Paltry compared to last year's numbers. I also picked up a total of 17 boxes of dimes + $500.00 in CWR and loose dimes, snagging myself 17 keepers total. I picked up one single box of nickels, which gave up two war nicks.

    I also searched through $85 worth of Ikes this year, netting me my second silver Ike. Also searched through $400.25 in loose quarters, netting me a lone silver Washington.

    All in all, not too bad of a year despite the drastically lowered volume.

    Total silver found in 2020: 50.86 ozt.

    A few highlights:

    Another one! (my second silver Ike)
    Post-Covid SOLID ROLL! (<--- speaks for itself)
    The one that hopefully doesn't get away... (partial box that gave up a lot of silver)
    2020: Those Barren CWR (nice score from my sniping teller girlfriend)



    Good luck and happy hunting in 2021, everyone!
