My girls in the accounting office came through for me again, but big time! When they have hand wrapped rolls going out they have to put them on the scale. If it is short that dump them and count them, then add the needed coin/s. Well my hero dumped this short roll out and here is what she found and heard make that amazing sound it must have made as 18 of the quarters were silver. There were 4 Canadian coins (1 silver), plus the roll was short a quarter (thank God!) which is what made the weight off. Of the 39 coins in the roll: 3 Canadiens of no importance. 18 bicentenials. Then the beauties in the picture. 41, 42, 48, 52, 54, 57, 58, 62, (9) 64's, and a 67 Canadian.
Thanks you customer who paid with your parent's or grandparent's roll of coins. Just to think that if they had 40 coins in the roll (or no Canadians) they would have been stuck in an employee's register and handed out for change all day. I wanted to just sit up there and start dumping rolls, but unfortunately nobody is allowed in the vault besides accounting and they don't have time to specifically look through coins for me. I was just dreaming of 10 more of these rolls in there.
I thought it was interesting that they thought enough to save all that silver but then had a bunch of 76's in there as well. Either way....SCORE!

No kidding! If it wasn't such a pay cut I would ask to transfer to the cash office.

Work has been a better source of silver for me than the banks lately.

did you make sure that the 76s weren't 40% silver quarters?
08-11-2012 11:32 AM #22071
I can understand skunk boxes of halves, quarters, and dimes; but when you get a skunk box of nickels it really is depressing
08-11-2012 11:48 AM #22072
Yeah I did. Nothing special there. Those I can kind of see keeping if you are just an amateur coin grabber, but the 3 Canadians that were not silver are the ones that baffled me.

Unusual bag today - $638 dime bag gave up two silver canadian dimes, a '52 george vi and a '61 elizabeth ii. No american silver!
08-11-2012 11:54 PM #22079
box of dimes - the only silver in there, so worn that I can't make out the last digit in the date.

Even if the roll was complete the weight would have been off likely prompting your girls to count the coins, anyway. The silver and Canadian quarters would have given a completely different weight than what your standard roll of solid clad quarters would have given.
