Welcome to the forum, TomM!

And that's a great find... if you scroll back a few pages, you'll find my silver dime hoard from early 2021 - 450 silver dimes in total including 9 Mercs (two trips to the same bank almost a month apart).

A belated thank you for the welcome, John77. I've found your previous posts very informative, and that massive find was really something.

I recently crossed the 200 box mark and figured it was time for an update.

In 200 boxes, I've found 367 silver dimes (290 Roosevelt, 72 Mercury, and 5 Canadian silver). My average including hoards is 1.83 silvers per box; without hoards I find an average of 1.095 silvers per box. I have found two hoards so far, the first which I previously described.

I found my second hoard three weeks ago, from an unremarkable lunch break trip to a bank near my workplace. The lead teller doesn't like to give out coin, but let me exchange ten rolls I had gone through for ten CWR. Eight rolls were all clad, but two rolls contained a total of 53 silver dimes, including four Mercury dimes (photos below). Modern dimes, including 2021s, were mixed in. I went back the next day, but they had no other rolls.

In other news, I started separating Brinks boxes from CWR in my records back in April, and the difference is stark. I find a silver dimes about every four Brinks boxes, compared to the 1.83 per box figure for combined CWR and MWR (which would be even higher if I removed the Brinks boxes from this average). This does not count fresh 2021/22 boxes, which I do not unroll but typically swap for CWR from coin-stressed branches. Clad Canadians are likewise scarce in Brinks, which may indicate weight sorting somewhere upstream.

One of my banks has dropped Brinks and started to use a local supplier (Titan). They seem to be better for silver, but my sample size is small; I found a 1953 Canadian (below) in one of their rolls the other day.

I go to 60-70 banks each month, and I scarcely ever see marked dime rolls or hear of another collector who hunts dimes; this is in contrast to nickels, quarters, and especially halves. It puzzles me, because I'm having a great time, but perhaps other collectors have had a bad experience with Brinks MWR and moved to other denominations.

I had great luck with dimes pre pandemic. From April 2018 - December 2018 I averaged 7 dimes per 1000 searched. Now its much slower, but switched to halfs again. Silver finds are great at the moment.
