    Back in the saddle

    I had been away from this site for several or so years, until I happened to sign on a month or so ago, and saw a familiar (screen) name.

    Immy and I were friendly rivals/colleagues back in the hey day of this hobby/forum (~'06 - ~'11). For various and sundry reasons we both had left the forum. So I was all to happy to see Immy had come back, and was doing well. That may have encouraged me, a tad, for I'm going back out to banks and a see what can still be found.

    I haven't quite the bragging numbers ole Immy has, but I also haven't (yet) put in the time.

    Eight boxes of halves the last several or so weeks, and only a lone 40%er and an NIFC I didn't have yet, to show for it. However, as I had posted last month, I did walk away with a very nice small haul from a bank's coin counter bag.

    So. thanks for the nudge, old pal, and let's see if we can kick start this forum again.

    Happy Hunting, all.

    Amen brutha, and good to see you back!

    Can't tell you how great it is to see TNet vets returning. Things have changed a helluva lot since then but if there was ever a time to rekindle the ol' hobby, it's now, when we need an immersive, enjoyable distraction from this mad world.

    If only we could get GMan back into the Old Timers club...

    I still monitor the forum fairly regularly, but I have been too busy with my other hobby (sports cards) to do much with coins unfortunately.

    Welcome back, I do remember seeing your posts way back when. Things have been really slow here in northern Az for finding any silver halves. But it is a hobby, so I take what I can find when I find it.

    Ahhh, another kindred spirit from days of yore. Good to see you still out there Gman. Hey if we can find TXTim & LJ maybe we can "get the band back together.".

    Wishing you good luck, and I plan to do more CRHing and posting back on this forum, and trust you will too.

    Stay safe and good hunting, old friend.

    Never left (for long). I might not visit the forum everyday, but still hunting 40+ years.

    I find the banks are not nearly as easy to work or deal with as in the past. Maybe just around here, don't know for sure.

    While I have been too busy with my other hobby to do much, I will add that what was my main pickup back merged with another bank and no longer allows the selling of bags off their coin machines and my main dump bank got rid of their automatic coin counters.

    In other words, if I was to get back into it more than just dabbling a little, I would need to come up with a whole new strategy to do any volume.

    That is exactly my problem here in northern Az. Branches are closing, lack of tellers and cutting hours of lobby open times. Some banks are being bought up by another bank and they won't order boxes. Might just have to go back to metal detecting old places again....rats! Coin Roll Hunting was so much easier on the old knees.

    In my early days here, I believe I was more addicted to the forum than actually hunting.

    I hear what you're saying Gman. However, I don't count us old timers out just yet. With age and experience comes wisdom. Keep the faith, brother.

    While I could probably find my way to a new strategy, my bigger issue is time as my other hobby keeps me quite busy.
