    Found some silver

    It's been a few months since I have been able to hunt silver.
    Well, Saturday I went to my CU to deposit a check and the branch manager said that there was some halves in the coin machine if I wanted them.
    YES YES YES
    The bag had $664.00 in it.
    I have done really well with the bags off of this machine.
    This time not great but it is the first silver I have found in a few months.

    all machines are quarantined-- re-rolling has been my only way to dump. no halves 'cause I won't dump where I eat, but cents , nics & qtrs are still on my menu-- I do an "exchange" for a sealed box

    Silver proof half in circulation? Wow, that's got to be pretty uncommon, right? Any veteran half hunters able to share their frequency of finding silver proofs?

    That's crazy - who in their desperation drops silver into a machine, or a proof? One person's folly becomes your treasure - congrats!

    Tweakers, kids stealing their dad's coin collection or widows that don't care about their deceased husband's coin collection come to mind!

    A LOT of people have no clue and just don't care about coins or silver.
    I had a woman give me silver change at a store I frequent once. I asked her if she had any kids, she said yes.
    I told her she should save the coins for them. She said naaa you can have them.
    She found a few more in the register and gave me those too.
    Can only lead a horse to water, right?
