    Checking in for the April round up... It was the best month since September but still a far cry from our previous averages.

    We searched 42 boxes on the month... 8 boxes had silver and 34 were skunks, an 81% skunk rate (previous years we usually hovered around 50%). In those 34 skunks were 23 in a row, our second longest skunk streak of the year.

    The silver boxes yielded a total of 6 x 90% and 36 x 40% for a total of 7.49 ounces, about what we used to pull in two weeks of searching.

    Most of the silver came from two boxes this past week, one with 8 x 40% and one with 11 x 40%.

    Nothing much of note going on, found a silver quarter in the reject chute this month which is always a nice surprise. Haven't done any CWR hunting in awhile, was waiting for the weather to warm up to take a cruise around to see what we can scrounge up.

    Who knows what May will be, we'll see!

    Hi Everyone, May was another nothing-special month with high volume and low returns.

    We searched 46 boxes, 34 were skunks including a 21 box skunk streak in the middle of the month.

    From the 12 silver yielding boxes we pulled 6 x 90% and 29 x 40% including four Franklins for a total of 6.46 ounces. That's 0.76 silvers per box for the month, ouch.

    Still better somehow than the first several months of the year so I'm hoping things continue to trend in the right direction. Maybe things will go back to normal soon! I hope so!

    OH! And I had another box short an entire roll this month. Before the teller handed me one of my boxes she goes "oh wow, they're really loose in there" and yup, the rolls were kicking around with some empty space. This time I checked before I left the bank and walked back in to let them count the rolls. I know it's not their fault so I hope they mention it to the courier. Got my ten bucks back this time at least.

    We hunted a little less in June due to a pickup teller's vacation and one of my pickup branches closing. I was able to move some of my ordering to another branch of the same bank which should hopefully begin this week.

    Our 31 boxes for the month yielded 5 x 90% and 35 x 40% for a total of 6.99 ounces including a Franklin and two Walkers It's hopefully the new norm (back to consistently finding something). No record breaking numbers but 6.5-7.5 ounces a month is better than what we were doing.

    We also went on a "fun run" in June, where I took a day off from work and spent 6-7 hours bank hopping trying to scoop up any loose or CWR halves. I think we ended up hitting 50 banks over the 150-200 miles round trip we did and found very few halves at all. Usually when we go we'll come across a big dump or two but this time we only found $200 in CWR and $74 in loose halves... yeah, from FIFTY BANKS.

    We did strike some silver from two banks back-to-back in a town that usually never produces anything for us. In the end we found 1 x 90% and 18 x 40% for a total of 3.03 ounces, enough to cover fuel at least, which is more than I can usually say for our fun runs.

    We're about to break 250 boxes which puts us on pace for a 500 box year. I will likely be missing a couple weeks for vacation through July-August so hopefully the boxes I'm able to pick up are decent!

    Hi Everyone! I decided to combine our July and August results into one post since July was a light month for volume. We were affected in both months by vacationing time so the quantity searched is less than normal.

    In July we only got around to searching 18 boxes which turned up 2 x 90% and 21 x 40%, all Kennedys. Not breaking any records but a decent return for the quantity I suppose.

    We did pretty well in August as well, thanks to two decent boxes. One box yielded 5 x 90% (1 Franklin and 4 Walkers) and another box, the best of the year so far, yielded 8 x 90% and 4 x 40% including 4 Franklins and 2 Walkers for a total of 3.49 ounces. We did 30 total for the month and ended up with 18 x 90% and 14 x 40% for a total of 8.58 ounces. That's the kind of month we need every month!

    We haven't had any "home run" boxes so far this year, August's 3.49 ounce box being the best. I don't think we've had a year yet where the best box was under 8 ounces.

    We just surpassed the 300 box mark and inched by 50 ounces as well. The rate of return is slowly climbing and the skunk ratio is decreasing, but still, we're averaging just over 1 silver per 2 boxes, ugh.

    The last two weeks of August definitely dropped off and September is starting out lean as well. Hopefully we hit another pocket this month to keep our totals climbing. The chances of getting anywhere near 100oz this year are narrowing every week, unless we end up with a few real nice boxes soon.

    Looks like I forgot to update for September! Wasn't a great month, after 34 boxes searched we only found 5.16 ounces (2 x 90% and 30 x 40%). Not a whole lot to write home for!

    October was definitely better, thanks to one nice box! One box yielded 10 x 90% and 13 x 40% for a total of 5.54 ounces, more than all of September if you notice! The box included a 1904S Barber and a 1947 Walker.

    About time for my third haircut - Barbender!

    Besides that one, we searched 31 other boxes and found 8 x 90% and 17 x 40% for a total of 5.41 ounces including three Walkers. Nearly 11 ounces for the month puts it at the best month of the year!

    If the last two months of the year are that nice, we might limp across to the 100 ounce mark, but more realistically I'm thinking we'll end up around 90 ounces. Good luck out there everyone!

    Another slow, average month for November. We did 46 boxes on the month and came away with 7.31 ounces (10 x 90% and 25 x 40%) which is only about 0.75 silvers per box.

    That's about all I have to say, nothing really remarkable at all. No standout boxes, nothing with more than 4 silvers, 30 skunks total. Yeesh...

    Haven't gotten around to posting my year end round up, hoping to get to that today!

    We wrapped up December inching and grinding our way towards 100oz for the year but alas, it was not to be. The results for the first half of the year were just too poor to get us to our goal.

    We searched 36 boxes in December, even with the holiday disrupting orders and came away with 10 x 90% and 36 x 40%, all Kennedy for a total of 8.94 ounces. It turned out to be the second best month of the year for us!

    We also went on a couple "fun runs" right before Christmas, hitting up as many banks as possible in an attempt to scoop up some late-year deposits. We picked up $131 in loose (1 x 90% and 4 x 40%), $1290 in CWR (14 x 40%), and our first ever yielding $350 in MWR (4 x 40%) for a grand total of 3.62 ounces.

    We probably drove 250 miles or more and hit up 80 or so banks, so obviously the result isn't worth the time spent. Hopefully 2019 will be the year of the first solid roll!
