Keep searching, hopefully you'll find some soon. I went through $250 in halves last month and I was skunked as well.

Do you mean you searched 5 rolls or you searched $100 worth of halves? Neither is a fair test of what may be available where you are...Hunt 10 boxes and tell us your results!

I seldom am able to find more than a few dollars of loose halves at a time and they have generally been checked over carefully before being turned in IMO. Boxes and bags have produced my only fruitful results.
happy hunting !

I got 100 dollars worth. I didn't really expect much, but was hoping for at least one good one

I was with the wife, and she only let me get 100 dollars worth...after I cash them back in, I'll go back for more and use my "slush fund" to finance more than just 200 coins

These were all rolled...one had the "old style" paper, so I was hopeful for that to have something, as it appeared to be hand rolled.





When you return them to the bank, do you re-roll them, or just leave them loose?

I would be excited by the old rolls too! At least a chance there.

My bank had a coin machine so I take them loose and dump them in. Much easier that way.

I wish mine did...I use BMO Harris, and they're trying to discourage people from bringing in change last time I checked (that's why I use Coinstar for my clad finds...taking the Amazon gift card option so I don't pay a fee)

At least with the Amazon option you arenít getting dinged. Keep your eyes open for silvers left behind by others in the coin return as coin stars reject them. I havenít personally found any but know many others have.

LOL If KT did not have the use of the Queen's money, His Majesty could never buy boxes either! Perhaps if you explain that you will always get your money back, either as silver or by turning it in, your wife will loosen her coin purse a bit! After all, money is money!

I used to get 5-10 box skunk streaks (String&Son wrappers) before I switched to dimes back around 2011-2012. One thing I really like about dimes is the variety and the consistency of silver in the form of Barbers, mercs, Canadian and of course rosies. I averaged one silver per $150 in dimes searched, and I was hunting between $3-$5k per month.

Boy did I love getting the double-decker Brinks boxes though, they always came with at least a dozen or more silver halves.
