    I have found only 1 Franklin proof, and it was in a box of MWRs...remarkably rare.

    This box is a little better than the last one.
    But Lordy I have tons of copper to go through.
    I've saved them by deep and shallow reverse.
    By year. Etc.

    I stopped by the credit union to see if they had my box. I should have it tomorrow. They did have four rolls and just like last time and just like last time one roll had 4 40% in it.

    Got $20 in nickels on Valentine's Day. 6 pre-1960s and 10 buffalo nickels all in one roll!
    1938 d
    1937
    1936
    1935 s
    six dateless, restored the dates -
    1926
    1923
    1921
    1919
    1918 d
    1913 type 2

    then... compared another restored "1915 d" to my 1913 d type 2 from a while back, turns out after another treatment that it too was a 1913 d type 2. So I now own two restored dateless 1913 d type 2s.

    All in all it was a good Valentine's Day surprise!

    This week I have picked up $200 in MWR halves and another $200 in CWR halves, but have been too busy to search them. There is permanent marker on all the CWRs so it looks like a marked dump. This is all I know for now...Hopefully know more tomorrow and will share here!

    Finished searching a Loomis box today -skunk for silver. But it did have 3 NIFCs and 3 1974-D DDO. That’s the most DDOs I’ve found in 1 box! The nicest one is on top in the picture. I’ve also included a close up.

    The number of 74D DDOs you find is unbelievable! But I believe you :)

    Okay, not exactly CRH. I was in my LCS / Pawn Shop a week ago and he had a cigar box with about three hundred wheaties for 10 cents each. The owner told me all key and semi key dates had been pulled already. I really haven't been able to fill the remaining holes from the first 3 decades of the 20th century despite looking through a number of boxes and coin machine bags of cents. So today I took my top 3 albums/folders and went through all of his cigar box wheaties with a magnifying glass and 10X loupe. I bought 50 of them:
    They ranged from Good to Very Fine. My coding is as follows: 1HF (Primary Album Hole Filler), 2HF (Secondary Album Hole Filler), 3HF (Tertiary Folder Hole Filler):

    1909 (1HF - not the VDB)
    1920 (1HF upgrade)
    1911 (1HF)
    1911-D (Bought for a future album)
    1912-D (1HF)
    1913 (2HF)
    1914 (2HF)
    1915 (1HF)
    1917 (Bought for a future album)
    1917-D (1HF)
    1917-S (1HF upgrade > 2HF)
    1918-S (1HF)
    1919-D (2HF)
    1919-S (2HF)
    1919-S (Bought for a future album)
    1920 (Bought for a future album - I believe this is a Woody)
    1920-D (2HF)
    1921 (1HF)
    1921 (2HF upgrade)
    1921-S (1HF)
    2 x 1924 (Bought for a future album)
    1925-D (1HF)
    1925-S (1HF)
    1927-S (2HF)
    1929 (Bought for a future album)
    1930-D (3HF)
    1930-S (2HF upgrade > 3HF)
    2 x 1930-S (Bought for a future album)
    1931 (2HF)
    1933-D (1HF)
    1934-D (1HF upgrade)
    1934-D (2HF)
    2 x 1935-S (Bought for a future album)
    2 x 1936 (Bought for a future album)
    1936-D (3HF)
    1936-S (2HF uprade)
    1936-S (Bought for a future album)
    1937 (Bought for a future album)
    1938 (Bought for a future album)
    1938-S (1HF upgrade > 2HF upgrade > 3HF)
    1939-D (2HF)
    2 x 1939-S (Bought for a future album)
    1938 (Bought for a future album)
    1951-S (Bought for a future album)
    1955-S (Bought for a future album)

    I'll probably wait a month or two until he gets a fresh batch of "find your own" wheaties and try and fill some more holes, lol. Here's a pic of the possible 1920 Woody, let me know what you think - it's pretty worn. Thanks!

    Went and got my box today. Man it’s been I bet five years since I’ve done a full box. I quit because I was tired of skunk and skunk. Tonight I had my youngest with me and we found 1 64 1 Franklin rare for me and 4 40% halves of which it was a first to find a 40% bicentennial silver and we found two of them. We also found one 2010 proof. Someone must have used those 76 from an old coin collection.

    Of 2 banks yesterday, one had 2 halves, which were a MS 2012P and D. I’ll keep them :)

    I searched the $200 in CWR halves and $200 in MWR halves I had picked up earlier this week and found 1, 87S proof in each batch.

    What a bummer! The only worse sight than this that I have seen was when I opened a sealed Brinks once and every roll wrapper had one end torn off. Still, you might get lucky and find a silver or two that slipped in among all of these marked coins at Brinks. Or maybe even a 1974-D DDO! Good luck.

    I've had that happen too, sealed box with rolls with one end folded down. Not sure how they didn't have to verify.

    These rolls haven't been messed with, so I hope you're right.
