Default 10 box hunt to continue the Silver Streak...

And yes, it did continue!

Now to the results of KT's first 10 box hunt!

Box 1 - no silver, 8 NIFCs and 1 Proof

Box 2 - no silver, 5 NIFCs and 2 Proofs

Box 3 - 17 40%er Kens, 10 NIFCs, and 1 Proof

Box 4 - no silver, 13 NIFCs

Box 5 - 1 40%er Ken, 21 NIFCs, 1 87 Ken, 1 Greek 10 Drachmai Constantine II

Box 6 - no silver, 8 NIFCs

Box 7 - 1 Franklin, 2 64 Kens, 15 40%er Kens, 7 NIFCs

Box 8 - 1 40%er Ken, 30 NIFCs, 2 Proofs, 2 Au-plated Kens

Box 9 - 2 64 Kens, 4 40%er Kens, 1 NIFC, 1 Proof

Box 10 - no silver, 7 NIFCs

So the grand total for the 10 boxes is: 1 Franklin, 4 64 Kens, 38 40%er Kens, 110 NIFCs, 6 Proofs, 2 Au-plated Kens, and 1 foreign Greek coin.

One of the proofs was the 1986 Statue of Liberty commemerative! 2nd one of those KT has ever recovered.

Enjoy the pics...there are a lot of them!

Well, that was certainly worth the effort. Love to see you pile up the silver, KT. I hope you had a good time on your vacation too. : )

Thanks to all! To see about my trip check my previous weeks post. KT posted a synopsis of the trip at the end of the thread.

And this hunt represents weeks 8 and 9 of the ongoing silver streak!

Welcome back, KT, it's been quiet here!

Nice haul again. Gotta love those boxes with teens of silver. Cool liberty proof, too. What's the '68 greek coin made of?

So...I rip one roll at a time, check the edges for both silver and for clad that's looking like new (sharp, bright reeding -- often proofs or nifcs) before moving on to check all the dates. I occasionally find halves that are nothing special date-wise, but in I guess you'd call it Almost Uncirculated condition. Usually I just toss 'em in with the rest of the no-keepers, but am tempted to keep them. Curious what the rest of you CRHers do with those...

Thanks, TorqueMaster!
This hunt taught KT something...in Box 7, where there were many 40%ers, most of them were so rough and worn that they would have been missed by edge hunting, significant copper was showing on them and most of the reeding was worn off. Some of the first boxes KT encountered when He started CRHing, contained a lot of nearly new looking halves for certain years, KT saved a few rolls of them, but after more experience was gained, His Majesty went ahead and just dumped them all, except for 1 roll of very clean 1989 Kens, because that was the birth year of Prince John. Gave them to Him as a Christmas gift a couple of years back. Now, unless they are low mintage, like 87 and NIFCs, KT dumps them. KT saves all foreign coins, all Proofs, and all oddities, like commems and gold-plated coins.

Default For KT's Loyal Readers

Due to a trip planned by the Queen next week, again KT will be absent next week as far as posting a new hunt. But the following week He will return with another 10 box hunt! So hold on and KT will be hopefully posting a continuation of this amazing Silver Streak!

To be clear, I check all the dates on all the coins, just check the edges first. If I ever get a life, MAYBE I'll shortcut the process, but like you say, the edges don't always tell the tale. I've had really dirty edges that have concealed silver. Or normal edges that turn out to be lots of keepables. Never had a silver with exposed copper on the edge -- in fact I didn't know that was possible. I have seen some 40% with sort of a two-tone edge, but more dark grey/light grey. I, perhaps foolishly, assumed the 40% coins were a homogeneous alloy, and somehow it still appeared silvery. My bad. Wiki tells the inside story of the 40% halves:

"The new half dollars retained their silvery appearance, due to the outer layer being 80% silver and 20% copper. The coin was also minted with an inner layer of 21% silver and 79% copper."

Thanks for the edumacation, your highness!

You are most welcome, Sir Torque! The Greek coin is a nickel copper blend/alloy. Stay tuned, Donneybrook, because KT hopes to dazzle and amaze again on the next 10 box hunt!

You just joined a most select group, that of a member of the Royal Round Table of MDers, and Royal Cohort of good King Totsalot!

Wow, I picked a good time to go AWOL. Thanks for the knighting, Your Highness. Everybody can now call me Sir Torque-salot, lol.

I'm sure I will be in fine company. Let the tales be told and silver flow.
