Picked up a nice box today. Had 52 40% and 7 90% including a Ben and one that looked like this. I grabbed this photo off the bay that looks about the same. Got a couple nicks going through the roller so I would grade about XF 40. Never know what you might find in a box. The other 3 boxes gave up 1 40% -

Nice box Jim! Very cool find! Yes, you never know what your going to find in a box, my coolest find so far was a 1908 Barber so far. HH, Maverick.
 

Very cool commem! Nice to see the ol timers still posting. Just out of curiosity, about how many silver halves have you pulled over the yrs?
 

A beauty. Glad to see your post Maine_Jim. This is what CRH is about!

I have had my run of good luck - persistence is the key! As for total finds over the years...I have a nice deck on my house now and took the family on a weeks vacation. I also have a SDB where it all goes - would recommend that for anyone that has been in it for a while and not cashed out.

Wow, nice coin! Must be sweet to see the silver edge and then to have an old commemorative on top of that!
 

Maine_Jim, I don't post on here anymore for obvious reasons, but this post from a vet gives me a reason to post!
That was one hell of a box you had there, congrats on the AWESOME silver haul, and the cherry on top, the pilgrim half dollar! Glad to see you're still searching and finding goodies.
Best of luck to you in your future hunts,

Good to hear from you BuffaloBoy - I seem to get one old silver commemorative a year and they sure are fun. Since I got back into CRH in 08 I have gotten two Stone Mountains, a Maine and now the Pilgrim. They are quite surprising when they appear and my first thought when I see the edge is foreign coin but then the big surprise.

nice numbers on the commems.

Do you have an album for them? :) Their are quite a few..
 

Only "classic" silver commems I've pulled have been BTW's. I'm jealous, lol.

No albums - I keep my good finds in 2x2's and in a 3 ring notebook. I have filled a couple of them.
