    2020: Those Barren CWR

    Had a late start hunting this year, didn't pick any boxes of coins up until this past weekend. I picked up a box of halves, a box of dimes, and a box of nickels.

    But I suppose it was worth it to take the first week and some days of January off to recharge, because all the boxes gave up silver.

    The box of nickels gave up two war nickels:

    The box of halves gave up two 90%ers and six 40%ers:

    And, yes, I finally broke a 50+ dime box skunk streak that lasted almost all of 2019 with a box of that gave up three Roosies:

    1963D
    1965

    The lack in quality of the dime picture is because my younger son wanted to snap it from his phone, which was my old piece of crap, that I gave him to play around with. So I obliged him.

    Anyway... what a good start to 2020!

    Great start to 2020! Happy to hear the dime box streak ended... 50+ boxes is crazy bad luck. Were you on a streak of a lot of new boxes?

    Yeah, I saw A LOT of full 2019 boxes and quite a few full 2018 boxes as well. I just kept plugging along going through them though because there was one that had just a few coins that weren't brand new and one of those few coins was silver. I have it listed as one of my "highlights" in my 2019 thread in my year-end wrap up post.

    Cool! I used to blow thru boxes of nickels via edge-hunting for the war types, I later ended up dumping my large collection of 1946-60 though.

    May your hot streak continue throughout 2020. I have never searched coin rolls but you have made think seriously about starting.

    Nice start to 2020 and congrats on breaking that awful dime skunk streak. I have a 17 box dime skunk streak and I told my tellers to just slap me if I ask for another dime box.
