Today I had some extra money so I stopped at a local bank and picked $10 in pennies. (They came in a box from the Pennsylvania mint although they weren't new at all. So now I have a box that says $250 in dimes). I had high hopes and thought I would get some good pennies--but I was mistaken. However, I did get some decent pennies. Until today, I had a very small penny collection so I got what I could from the rolls.
Here are the best coins I found from the rolls:
I thought I'd share some pictures with all of you of my collection. All of these coins are circulated. The 2 Dimes and Pennies were found at a local gas station! I have several other silver quarters, but this one is hands down the best of the best. As for the Eisenhower dollar, it was one of my first coins Enjoy!
1971-D. Eisenhower Dollar
1944 and 1945 Mercury Dimes
Well, I have finally devoted myself to collecting coins. It's no longer just a small hobby.
My collection is still very small. If I recall correctly, I have coins from 21 different countries (103 different types) and 145 total. I hope to at least double my collection in the next few months.
Since I am low on money, I will be focusing on hunting rolls of pennies and sorting through them to find some wheaties, steelies, etc. I still have to research some more on what else
