Ditto that @tmeyer!
Low tech trolling of CRHers. It's kind of funny.
I'm sure all our best wishes go with you. Waiting for your return. Don't forget us.
I will mention the teller who sold them to me was from Moldova, and WOW, she was as cute as her accent. This made finding nothing in the loose coins less painful
that doesn't help, put it on a piece of aluminum foil in water that has baking soda dissolved in it. Each of these treatments might help it. Scrubbing it with baking soda will put hairlines on it.
If you don't mind damaging the coin, an easy way to tell is to just take
plain white toothpaste between your fingers (not gel) and just rub the coin
on both sides. A lot of dirt will come off. Rinse and dry. If it is silver it will shine up. If it's a clad proof it will get a little cleaner but it won't shine up like silver.
Do this, but on the edge of the coin, not the obverse or reverse.
Bags are typically good for me. Especially, if the customer deposits the coins into the coin machine by him/her self directly and bypasses any potential silver sniping tellers. My first bag was only a partial bag ($164), but it yielded 51 silvers! Subsequent bags have not even approached that percentage of silver (15.5%), but I almost always find silver in a half dollar bag. One drawback however, is if a CRHer dumped into it. I try and find out if the bag was filled up gradually vs. all at once. Good luck and let us know how it shakes out.
Yes, dry here too Ace. Finally today one of the 2 boxes I picked up has 2 enders. Goes to show you have to be patient.
) , this shiny rim showed up early in my next box after I declared to myself “There’s no more silver in the world!” Hopefully, there will be more.
@BadLuckSilver if I was "on the move" then I would pickup only CWRs, but you do you. I cannot imagine stopping in my moving truck at even a couple banks in each town I pass through on a >1,000 mile drive...Will take a lot of time for likely low returns...BUT, I would enjoy the hunt
