This week I just finished up my first penny and nickel box for the first time in a few years since moving and being out of the hobby for too long
Anyways, was curious to get takes from people on what an average box yields. I know that every box is different, and theres never a way of knowing what youre going to get. But I know most of you guys keep stats on each box you hunt, so I assume you guys have a pretty good idea of when a box is above or below average.
My penny box was weak- only got one 1946-S and a 1947-S, along with 12 Canadians.
However, I think my nickel box did fairly well, heres the list-
1962 of exceptional condition (an upgrade for my album)
1965 of exceptional condition (an upgrade for my album)
My question here is in your experience, is this an average haul that can be expected to happen often? I'm†extremely happy with the finds in that nickel box. Or, is this a haul that I shouldn't get my hope up of finding very often? Again, I know every box is different and I shouldn't really expect anything. And again, I am very happy with these results; I'm not claiming that this was just a boring average box, because I was stoked to find these coins! Anyways, I'm being long-winded here, but just curious about other people's experiences.
Thanks so much in advance for reading and taking time to reply!
