    $154 in nickels, $124 from a bag, $30 in CWR's... Bag produced a lonely '43-P in the second-to-last handful out of the bag.

    The CWR's were a skunk, save for one roll which was 3/4's pre-50's nickels. The account number is on there, so I'm going back to try and get more from that account... but yeah, a VF '37 Buff and a '44-D out of that roll as well.

    I'll break the $110k mark for change on the year tomorrow. :eek: Pretty amazing considering 4 months ago I was sitting at about $45k.

    Are you ever able to work a deal with these people where you can pay them more than the dealer but get some nice rolls of silver for below melt value?

    Once in a blue moon... Most go home and do, their own research, I guess. I did buy a roll of dimes for 17x about a month ago. That was nice.

    I'd be all over that deal, a roll of dimes for about $85.00. I could not let the ones I collect go for less than $150 a roll, too much work and I just like them too much.

    I was having this same convo with sorterx in pms about a month ago. I can't fathom selling my silver for les than $50/oz.

    I guess we hold onto silver until it hits $50 or some sort of financial emergency arises. Then when it hits $50 I'll still try and hold onto it with hope it would go up more. Or maybe everyone would sell at $50 make a profit, drive the price down, then re-buy. It would be nice to be able to time the market, I can always dream.

    Not cool, I hope the dimes and nics are treating you better. Very discouraging and makes the grind all that more tough. Hang in there bro and take a look at the WLH's you found the other week. That ought to make you feel better.

    Ouch man! Where's the unlike button when you need it? Is the silver drying up out there?

    HOTN - Funny thing is as soon as you and I exchanged messages I went stone cold! I searched 3 boxes of dimes last night for 1 Silver Rosie. 2 Boxes were all 2011's! Ugh.

    I'm actually heading out of town tonight at midnight to head down to Hilton Head Island, SC for a weeks vacation. So, I'll be doing some hunting down there. I got a feeling my luck will improve.

    Either way, this hobby is very streaky. I had a great 7 day run followed up by a 7 day run that is bone dry!!! Really reminds me of BlackJack at the casino, only here you don't lose money...only time!

    I've got around 3000 pre-60's. Don't really know why I keep 'em. It's whatever.

    Box of dimes; 1 silver.
