    Really appreciate the posts on your finds. From 2009-2014 I was getting $1000.00 in halves almost every week plus some dimes and quarters here and there. I ceased CRH prospecting when silver-er crashed below $20 and when one of my dump banks cut me off...I was looking for a good excuse to quit cold turkey anyway as the return was arguably not worth the time invested. It was fun finding silvers but not fun picking up and dumping all the clad. In the end, I ended up with ~110 oz of constitutional silver for face value. Best wishes and good luck in your prospecting endeavors.

    Thats some serious jingle, Mr. Pyramid sir. I have fun with it. Hadn't put much time into bank hopping lately. The best part is seeing the grandkids eyes light up when I have them go through the rolls.

    Most of the Chase banks we dumped at got rid of their coin machines. So that leaves our dump options to Coinstars, store machines, and/or 2 local banks. So we cut back for that reason and the fact that work has became too busy and not enough free time to go through the rolls anymore.

    Since 2003, we've found over 50 rolls of 40% and 90% halves. Obviously a lot more were 40%'ers I didn't keep track of each, but the funny thing is we did find many walkers and franklins through out the years. So the time was worth it, it was fun father(my dad)/son and father(me)/daughter time. We still go through some halves every other week or so, but we ain't finding much silver anymore.

    More slim pickings... Coin counter magnetic strip today (1) $1 Canadian coin, (1) 1943 D steel cent.
    Penny roll search (About 8 rolls)...1944 P-D-S (1) each.
    95% copper pennys 1959-1981 about a $1.25, yes I still collect 95% coppers (even though it's fallen out of favor these days)
    Just something to save until I get enough for a silver score Then I cash them in. Cheers ya'll

    Just like the lottery. You can't win if you don't play.

    That's just like coin searching. If nothing else you get your initial investment back.

    Well it's getting to look a lot like Christmas and getting ready to order my big silver score. 5 Big Silver Eagles
    & maybe a Morgan or Peace dollar or a couple of cheap franklins or walkers the big question is do I order from APMEX
    my usual go to place or do I switch back to Gainesville Coins. both places have displeased me at different times.
    but I've never tried Provident Metals or JM Bullion both have free shipping on orders over $100 where as Gainesville
    will charge me about $9-$10 shipping. Give me your ya's or na's for consideration

    our LCS Guy semi retired, open by appointment only. He was a butt head any way ripped people off.
    So I bad mouth to anyone who asks haven't bought anything from him in about 4-5 years
    he used to finger the BU Coins so they'd be in bad shape if you ever had to sell them back to him. When I called him on it he said
    I all rusts any way,
    I actually semi like Apmex they a couple of orders ago sent me a couple of cleaned walkers that were supposed to be
    average circulated. I hate cleaned coins I'd rather have dirty coins "Au Natural" and last time I ordered a BU Peace dollar
    Raunchy AU at best.
