OK you've done it now. I'm off the the bank tomorrow for some rolls. I think I'll hit cents, nickels, dimes and some halfs if I can get them.

Checked a roll of nickels from the grocery store. 1958-D XF was the only thing worth mentioning.

I don't bother to save the 1950s dates unless they are 50-51D and the S mints. I dumped all the other ones in the coin machine back in December - had about $300 worth of 1950s dates. The only date I haven't found is the 50-D, several '39-D and S though.

I've got a big jug where I dump all my nickels. So they all went there.

Called a CU this morning, vault teller not in until 12 noon. Good grief, flipping banker's hours. Call the casino next and see if they have anything. How do you like that last one, came as a surprise when I was up there with my wife - went to the cashier window to see if they had any unusual money - and she said they could sell me all the coins that people turn in - in bags! Now I have businesses, banks, credit unions, schools and a casino as suppliers.

That's a great supply chain. I'm guessing you'll do well with it.

28 February

The credit union cited above, well they pooped out on me and only sold me a small amount of change.

 

$100 CWR in dimes - zilch

 

$20 CWR in nickels:

1 dateless Buffer

1 1939

3 40s

 

$10 CWR in cents

3 40s 50s wheats

1 1970-S

2 Canada YH

1 Canada centennial

 

Rather disappointed and let down, I went to one of my standby banks where the vault teller has boxes of bank wrapped rolls awaiting me every Friday

 

$100 Box of BWR nickels

3 40s

1 1954-S

1 Canada GVI 1938 - in the first roll I opened so I thought it was going to be a good box

1 Canada 65-81 pure nickel - all in all the only find that was exciting was the '38 GVI.

 

$25 Box of BWR Cents

5 40s and 50s wheats. Which ordinarily would have been a disappointing box

4 68-74 S mints

5 Canada YH

1 Canada centennial. Oh and about a third of the way into the box I broke open a roll and spread the coins out and something was piquing my interest:

Unfortunately lousy ipawd pictures:

 

1905ihcdetail.jpg

 

It is the third I have found in a month. It is unusual, I first found an IHC in a roll in April 2010 after years of searching. I found two in November of last year, and then three in February of this year. The box of cents would have been another disappointment except for Little Miss Longacre making an appearance.

:bthumbsup: Very nice finds. I can not even imagine the thrill of finding an IHC in a roll. WOW!

Man, I love this thread. Pretty sure SM is finding more IHCs than anyone in America.

I had to search quite a few rolls to find even that many. I never even found one until 2010 even though I started copper mining back in 2007. I estimate in the past 6-7 years I have sorted through a couple of million cents.

10 dollars in nickels yesterday -- nothing worth mentioning but I did dump them all in my nickel jug.

 

 

$5 in dimes this morning - found a dime I needed for my Roosevelt folders. Nothing else of note. Maybe I need to start a dime jug too. Just dumped them into my return to the bank coffee can.

5 March

 

$190 CWR 10c - zip, zilch, nada

 

$66 in CWR 5c

 

7 40s dated coins

2 Canada 65-81

 

$65 CWR 1c

 

Not thinking I am going to bother searching them - the other rolls above were rather lousy. Not to mention the depositor that rolled the coins taped the ends - heavily which is a complete PITA. So I may slit the rolls and bag them.

Just did another roll of dimes. Found a nice 1972D that I needed in my folder and a pristine 1984 that I used to replace my current version.

 

I have some cents that I'll check as the week moves on. The local banks are getting a bit peevish about giving out change. Don't know what's going on there but several branches of a small bank that I've been using since they first started business are making it rather difficult. Even for two rolls of cents you have to make a request and then pick them up the next business day. What a load of junk that it.

Banks, especially commercial banks - are a total PITA usually. I have a couple of branches of one large chain where I am "in" with the vault tellers, and they order stuff for me like I am a business paying for it - yeah I am sort of - boxes of candy, gift cards etc. Credit unions are a whole other story - the ones by me otherwise have to ship all their incoming deposit coins off by Brinks etc - and break up the rolls in the process of bagging them - I convinced the vault tellers that that was way too much work and expense of having to ship them off - which they are just too happy to oblige me and call me whenever they have large amounts of coins come in.

 

Boxes of candy are your friend. A bit of charm works too.

 

Working on the cents and have found a few Canuck late dates for you.

12 40s and 50s

3 68-72 S

1 Canada GVI 1945

17 Canada YH

In a lousy mood today. Stupid news from all the chest beating politicians trying to make a war where the world really doesn't need one and worried about our family and friends there.

I certainly sympathize with you on this one. Way too many people looking for trouble vs. a peaceful solution to things.

 

Went through $100 in dollar coins tonight. Found about 4 that I need for various folders. I also found a very nice 2003S SAC -- well used but still containing the vestiges of a proof coin.

I do save Lincolns and Canada YH that are still bright BU - even found some BU wheaties occasionally. I am taking a bit of a break from CRH this week. Too much other stuff going on.

What do you do with all your useless coins then? I have a good 10 boxes of cents I searched and have nothing to do with them. Coinstar? There's one at Meijer here and I do shop there a TON.

 

I want to get into searching half dollar boxes. That's a lot of cash sitting around, not knowing what to do with them!

Mine go back to a network of three different credit unions that have free coin counting machines - if you deposit them. So it gets deposited, then a day later I withdrawal and do all over again.,

Oh nice. I never thought about the credit union. I just have an account there because I got an awesome deal on a car loan. It's made 3 cents in interest since I got the loan. Lol.

 

Thanks!
