    model77 Silver Stacker

    1230 in halves mix of CWR and teller trays.

    3 40% one of them was from the teller tray.

    I almost missed one of them. It has copper showing! I'm used to the tricky two tone ones with silver and black edges but this one you can actually see the orange copper color reflecting back from between the reeds on the edge. that confuses me. Anyone else get a 40%er with actually copper showing?

    bummer results for the work I put in. Picked up 2 boxes today. still have a box of CWR dimes to get to as well. High volume so far this month but not high results.

    Can you post a picture of this copper looking 40%er you are talking about. I don't date check, I only edge and sound check. I hope I'm not missing stuff by not date checking.

    I've got a few 40%ers with the copper showing, but they still don't look like nickel clads. The copper color is much less vibrant, more tan/yellow than orange. I'd love to see a picture of it, model77.

    Fish, those are some great boxes.

    And I've had some of the 40%ers that have a brighter copper colored edge. Maybe tomorrow I'll look for one to take a picture of.

    Nice finds Ace. I'll probably get back into it this Friday, got lots of halves to pick up. Probably gonna work overtime instead of road tripping, though.

    I got two rolls of dimes on a whim from a local bank. Two silvers. :) sorry, I'm new here, don't know all the lingo yet. That did get me excited enough to try something more serious. Ordered two boxes of half dollars. They'll be in next week.

    I found 49 x 40%ers out of $50 worth of CWR halves on my second hunt ever. That was back a while ago and have only topped that one other time.

    Went to Boston for a trade show, Boston has no power and show got cancelled. Hit every bank I walked by for halves and got $200 BWR and scored one 40%er. Rerolled and cashed in the clad and that same bank agreed to sell me $200 more. Maybe will search them on the train ride home

    I'm pretty excited to get my first two boxes of halfs next week. What do you guys generally keep, other than silver? Are there any particular dates/designs that are valuable?
