Finn235 Posted November 6, 2008 Report Share Posted November 6, 2008 Since starting my on-the-side job as a cashier, I've taken to trading pocket change for oddities that find their way to my register. Nothing too special, but I've managed some interesting finds: 1964-D Kennedy half-dollar (The obverse is a little yellowish, but the reverse could easily grade MS-60 or better) 1943-P Nickel 1938-P Nickel (in fine/very fine condition, I have found most non-wartime nickels 1938-1963) Dimes- 1957-P, 1960-D, 1964-P A handful of wheaties, mostly from the 50's A 1959-P and 1964-P penny in EF/AU condition A handful of S-mintmark pennies and nickels (including a 1948-S nickel I found in a roll from the bank) And of course, a few $2 bills and dollar coins. The best part is, I "bought" all of these for face value. Nickels seem to be particularly plentiful, probably on account of the unchanged design from 1938-2004. From my experience, about one in two rolls of nickels will have one from the early '50s or before. I might get some pictures up once I stop being lazy about it. Anybody else have interesting finds/ tips on where to go to find good coins that people spend? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
