My plan is more to hit the main veins of banks along major roads for the first half of the day, then spend the last few hours (Say, 1:30-5) hitting up the small towns surrounding.
One more thing, I hit a mini milestone today with the 2 x 40%ers. I'm now at $100.50 face value in 40%er's! I wonder how many years it will take me collect a full box of $500 of 40% halves.
Right now I've been searching for lets say 10 months. I guess I'm on track for about 4 years to fill a box of 40%er's. It's a bad gauge since I've increased my volume in the past couple months. I'm shooting for 400 x 40%er's for the year of 2012. 200 boxes with an average of 2 silvers per box will do the trick.
My goal is $100k in halves. I don't have specific goals as far as ounces goes.
another box of cents, 14 wheats 22 canadians. the cream of the crop is the 1927 Wheatie i found
CCRI 2014 -> URI 2016
Haven't posted in 5 days. Some great finds lately, congrats!!!
Box 1: 11 40%ers
Box 2: Skunk
Box 3: Skunkarooni
Box 4: Skunkmeister
$440 in CWR and BWR: Skunk sandwich
1 Box: 2 40%ers
Not great results.....but that first box at least helped...
Picked up 8 rolls yesterday, found fourteen 40%ers! And seven of them were in just one roll!
Wed. is my normal dump and scroung around looking for coins day.
Had a bit of good luck that I have been needing! $6 face value halves from a teller. They were all 40%ers!!!
Teller wanted to double check if I wanted them as they were pretty dirty and held one up. I didn't see the date but could tell right away b/c it had the "cigarette stain" toning to it!
Felt great taking them in my hand and realizing they were all silver!
Those however appear to have been the only halves in town so I spent my dump money on quarters and dimes. should keep me busy until I get my next two boxes this Friday. Not expecting much though. I think like 4 or 6 coins is the most I have ever pulled out of one box and have had more skunks than anything.
I really need to take a trip south to get into a differnt deliver centers territory and see what happens. Or maybe east. I'm not driving all the way to Detroit but if I could get far enough over to get into their delivery area and order some coins from there that might do better. Am I right in assuming big city and lot's of poverty are two positive factors in finding silver?
