Latest Circulation Find


Recommended Posts

Several times I have noticed members saying they have a 'connection' at a place of business or bank.

 

Did you (or any of our members) make your connection through an existing friend or did you work up the nerve to make a connection with a total stranger?

 

I don't know anybody who handles lots of coins who doesn't already save them theirselves.

 

Does anyone have ideas on making new connections and which ones seem to be the best?

 

A great question requiring its own post.

I had a connection at a local bank in Jersey City about 10 years ago, and I just kept going in and asking her for $200 in halves and after about the 3rd time she just told me she'd save all the halves for me and I could just come once a month and pick them up. Lots of Franklins, 90% and 40% Kennedys on that one, the only thing she wouldn't give up was one walker that she got in that she gave to her son. Can't argue with that!

Checked a favourite coin-star machine and found a 1943 steel cent. A little rust, but okay. I'll try and pass it off as a dime, as that is about what it is worth :-)

I received a 1963 Silver Roosevelt Dime in my change recently. When the cashier handed me my change, I knew it was a silver dime just by the sound.

Hey everyone, I just got back from my trip back to the east coast. I was back visiting family. Anyways, I stayed a my Grandpa's house for a while and he gave me a bunch of wheaties, steel cents, some silver certificates, and a big dollar bill. I also found some P buffalo nickels in good shape, so I didn't make out too bad.

My mom always saves her pennies and gives them to me when I go home.  Last time I was home a week ago she gave me 107 pennies, including 5 wheaties from 1945-1958.

 

I have my mother, daughter and husband on the lookout for me at all times.

I recieved my First 2005 nickel in circulation when I was buying a ring for my Girlfriend in Laughlin. Not the first one I have seen in circ, just the first I recieved in change.
