Default Never ever give up!

After last weeks silver bust, KT was optimistic this week would be better! After all, when you are at the bottom of the well you keep looking up!

So KT picked up His Royal Boxes at the supply bank and headed to the Castle. He got 4 of the boxes completely searched by the King's Bedtime on Thursday night. And He had some success. Visions of nubile Egyptians danced in His Royal Head ....

Rising early on Friday, His Majesty finished off the final box...a bit anticlimactic...but one never knows!

Here are the results:

Box 1 5 NIFCs
Box 2 1 64 Ken, 3 NIFCs
Box 3 1 Ben, 2 NIFCs, 2 71 proofs
Box 4 5 NIFCs, 1 bicent. proof
Box 5 3 NIFCs

Total - 2 90% Ag halves, 18 NIFCs (only one keeper), and 3 proofs.

An interesting hunt...KT loves it when he pulls from the box and finds a Ben...always a fun time!

Was it Double Mint gum that had the Jingle: "Two, two, two mints in one!" Love those 2 90%ers!

Enjoy the pics this week and best of luck to all in the forum for upcoming hunts!

The silver Kennedys are always nice, but it's the Franklins I like and that one is the same age as me! Congrats!

Thanks everyone for your kind comments!

dymyansk1942.....reread KT's initial posting of this hunt. His Majesty buys 5 boxes of halves from His Royal Bank every week. Me thinketh from your comment this may be your first read of KT's weekly posting...

You are most welcome to view and comment every week...sometimes they are amazing and other times....like last week...they let everyone know how little there is out there to recover by CRHing!
