Default Got some silver to show this week!

Greetings, All in the Royal Kingdom! KT has some recovered silver to show this week and glad of it!

The Hunt:

Box 1 - 2 40%er Kens, 2 NIFCs, and 1 Proof
Box 2 - 1 40%er Ken and 1 NIFC
Box 3 - 4 NIFCs
Box 4 - zippo!
Box 5 - 6 NIFCs

Totals for the coffers this week - 3 40%er Kens and 1 2000S Proof. Kept none of the NIFCs.

Glad that the silver came early as KT gets nervous when starting the 3rd box and nothing silver has shown! Anyway, KT did some Royal this week!

Enjoy the pics and best of luck to all on the Forum this week!

I think your silver intake should begin to pick up around the Fall as people dump coins for Holiday money? Still trying to figure out a seasonal pattern if one exists..

Congrats on the finds. Mud mentioned seasonal patterns, have you noticed any patterns as long as you have been hunting rolls?

KT looked over the Royal Records since 2012 and finds no pattern. Here are the results:
40% 90%
2012 352 34 11 months
2013 401 44 1 year
2014 191 32 1 year
2015 451 64 1 year
2016 348 82 1 year
2017 284 53 8 months

KT has not tried to correlate the average yearly price of Ag to these numbers. It is obvious that fewer people were dumping silver halves in 2014 vs the other years. And the year after (2015) it was a great year to CRH! Perhaps people making up for saving silver the year before???

Any other ideas about this? I see no seasonal trends when checking the weekly records.

That sure is a LOT of Silver! Basically free for the taking...plus the occasional foreign coins or high count rolls...Pretty great expenditure of time and a rolling over investment...

Youve basically been taking the same fiats in week after week, picking through the coins, cashing them back for fiats, and getting more rolls...What could be more simpler and economical than that? For a hobby that really pays!? You still have the same fiats when you started with and a massive heap of silver!
