Default Erratic is the best way to describe this CRH

KT was hoping to extend the silver streak this week, but alas, it was not to be.

This set of 5 boxes of halves were erratic concerning interesting coins.

Box 1 - 2 NIFCs
Box 2 - 71 NIFCs
Box 3 - 1 1972 S Proof Ken
Box 4 - NOTHING!
Box 5 - 3 NIFCs

The disappointing thing, besides the lack of silver this week, is that none of the NIFCs were of the dates that KT is interesting in keeping. So the only keeper of the entire hunt was the 1972S Ken, pictured below. At least this week was not a complete bust! HA HA

Wishing best of luck to everyone in the forum with their efforts. We are in the middle of a horrific heat wave here in the central Kingdom. Take care and stay healthy!

Your Majesty can change that lonely and arduous boring CRH hunting from 'erratic' to 'erotic'! Make it a Date Night!...Just put on some Barry White or Harry Connick, or Elvis...light some candles, take a shower, shave, liberally splash on some of this French stinkwater stuff you get from Walgreens in the appropriate areas, put on a bathrobe or if there are no kids present, simply go Commando, pop a bottle of wine or 6 pack of Zima, and get the Queen involved! Its a stone cold Win Win no matter what kind of coins are in those rolls!!

This is what us lowly Hayseeds do, since we cant afford rolls of halfs! Hell, we just bring home rolls of pennies, sorting the coppers from the zincs with a rig like this set on Full Tones on the counter top and get jiggy right there in the kitchen! No need to even look at the dates, the Full Tones audibly tell a copper from a zinc!....

Also, you can get some Marie Callender Chicken Pot pies from the Dollar Store for $2.50 each and have a romantic candlelight dinner! If you really want to pull out all the stops like me, You can drive through the local Graveyard and pick up a nice bouquet of flower for free! Oh Hell yeah! Its Friday! Date Night!

Yeehaw! You peasants sure know how to make the best of your situation! And KT does too! Just go back next week for another 5 boxes! LOL. For you see, HOPE springs eternal within His Majesty's Royal Heart!

His Majesty thanks you, Sir Zeemang, for your encouragement! Never fear, a few barren boxes are not enough to keep KT from CRHing the rest of the year!
