Barely avoided a 5-box skunk streak today, but I did set a new personal record at 4. Very poor results since those three great boxes last week.
$340 CWR dimes: Two silver Roosies in the same roll. And a whole $2 extra!
$6 loose Ikes: Nothing of any major interest, but a pretty nice '76 D and a '71 D with one of the cleanest obverses I've seen on an Ike. The back is a bit dinged and it's kinda dull overall, though.
$1.50 loose halves: One 40%
Three boxes of halves: One 40%

4) 5x40% 1 x 90%

1 box of halves yielded two 1967 40%er's. Funny thing was that the first two rolls each had a coin, the next 48 were all skunky-lol. Have one more $500 box I'll be looking through today.

$10 Nickles: Skunk
$10 Dimes: Skunk
$120 Quarters: Skunk.
There was a quarter in the reject thing on the coinstar machine. Just a normal quarter, wonder why it was there.

Two boxes of halves: Nothing. Past seven boxes have produced just one 40%er
BTW, has anyone else noticed that Strings seems to be making their wrappers out of a different paper stock? A lot tougher to unroll the ends.

Sometimes I'll get Strings rolls (usually dimes or nickels) that have a much thicker/harder paper stock, which makes them a lot harder to crack open. My guess is they used to use the thicker stock and then switched to a thinner one to save money, but some cash logistics companies still have rolls of the old stuff in their warehouses. Either that, or they offer two tiers of stock (at a higher and lower price points) to customers).
Speaking of unrolling the ends of halves, I got my first resealed box last week. The box was normal, but inside nearly all of the rolls looked like they were opened and re-crimped, and of course the box was a skunk. Between that, brand new rolls, and some of my normal banks getting rolls from random other cash companies, it's been tough trying to get a consistently similar supply lately

4 more boxes of halves today, 3 40%
08-02-2012 12:35 AM #21945
I got two out of the two boxes before these two. Seems hard to find the older silver halves I'm new to this and only been at I a short while but my big find that got me started on this was in cwr's. I may quit ordering these from the bank. Seems like a lot of time put into it and not much in return. Not to mention returning the halves to a bank can sometimes be frustrating. The banks don't seem to like them lol.
