And plus, even without a big find, it's the same as paying $50 for a full day of food and entertainment... how can you beat that!

I just had the craziest roll find someone could have! I bought 30 rolls of pennies this afternoon and aside from most of them being over 1-3 cents, the 2nd to last roll I emptied out contained nothing but dimes! 56 of them to be exact. I've never seen anything like it before. This is a $5.10 profit on a 50 cent investment. I'm thinking about going back to this bank to try and buy more rolls of pennies, the teller made the comment that he had $35 worth of pennies but I only bought $15 from him. Anyone had something similar happen before or want to take a gander at why or how this could happen?

They ran out of dime rolls, had to use something...

I find "A" dime in a penny roll on a pretty regular basis. I think those cheap coin sorters people buy make mistakes sometimes, but a whole roll of them!? That's pretty cool!

Yes indeed, 6 coins over from a full roll to be exact. This makes up for the roll I got from a bank yesterday that only had 45 pennies in it, lol! I went back and bought the remaining 40 rolls from this particular teller. I'm going through them right now, no more dimes yet but one of the rolls I just went through dates to 1987 and before. There are several rolls with the same type of wrapper that these pre-1988 coins were found in so I'm hoping there are more of these older rolls in the lot.

One box today and found 1 1965. Does it matter what company ships the boxes?

Went through $100 of BWR, got 10 40% halves out of them. And, once again, a single roll had 7 in it! So after going through about $373 of halves in just 4 days of searching, my total is 43 40% halves and 2 90% quarters.
It's strange, though: I've yet to find a 1970 half, and every single '68 or '69 is from Denver.

All of the boxes I've been getting come from Brinks in clear plastic rolls. I average 10 wheats per box with them. I've read about people having better finds from Loomis boxes.

Some of the rolls were interesting, though. One dates to 2003 or earlier, one dates to 1987 or earlier and one dates to 2004 or earlier. All three of these rolls have the same type of wrapper. I'll be hanging onto these rolls for a while, they are kind of neat as it is like stepping back in time and going to a bank almost 10 or 25 years ago.

Daenerys. Is. A. Boss.
That's normal, strange would be finding a 1970 half, since it was NIFC (Not Intended For Circulation) or a '68 or '69 from Philadelphia (because they didn't make them) lol

Picked up another box of halves after work today.....another skunk.

My wife returned yesterdays SKUNK box of dimes and picked up another box of dimes on the way home.
Got a 58 Rosie. So far from 10 boxes of dimes we have had at least one with 3 being skunks but we have avoided 2 in row so far.
Best of luck to everyone!

Has anyone found a good calculator to put in the # of coins and multiply the silver content of various types of silver coins?
02-16-2012 08:16 AM #18673
^ Just make an excel spreadsheet!
Or send me a PM with your email and I'll send you mine.
