Thanks. It is the 5th or 6th one Ive pulled over the years.

Good break out from the doldrums!
But I figure I will need to buy box somewhere besides my little town. This box is rather disappointing.
Thanks Berto for the reply. I suggested 25 Lbs based on my own empirical data, where I weighed a number of half dollar boxes (20 or so) on my bath scale. The scale is good to 0.2 Lbs so not super accurate. However, in every case the box weighed 25.0 or 25.2 Lbs. The few times it was 25.2 Lbs, I had some enders showing and found some silver. So, you got me curious about what the weight should be excluding the box. Coin weights are per the Red Book.
If All Coins are Clad:
11.34 gms/coin x 1000 coins / 453.6 gms/Lb = 25.0 Lbs
If All Coins are 90% Silver (unlikely but we can "Dream!"):
12.50 gms/coin x 1000 coins / 453.6 gms/Lb = 27.6 Lbs
I guess the good news in all this is my bath scale is fairly accurate and I'm not any heavier than it shows, lol!

Wouldn't call it an error anyway, but a variety. WAMs used to be a big deal but I don't hear much about them anymore. If I recall, 98 was a little harder to find. Still a premium attached to these? I only ever found 1x 2000.
I know it's a variety but usually I post varieties in that section regardless. I checked it out on ebay and in that condition it's only bringing a couple bucks at best. I have found 2 of the Wide AM's since I've been searching now for a few years. Still cool to find!
Thanks! See my predicament? Tough decisions!

Those '15's are nice! Great finds!
@Alan Cecil ! Do I understand you correctly that your Avatar is the coin you just found. If so, excellent!
