Roll searching newb here!
Only been doing it for a few weeks, but I'm going big time next week with a box of halves and 4 boxes of pennies for a week's worth of searching. I anticipate doubling that within a month or two...
I intend to list my finds weekly, but I will post what I have found over the last few weeks of random sampling.
Q's: 20 rolls -> Skunk
D's: 70 rolls -> 2 silver Roosies
P's : 5 boxes -> 54 rolls (~ 21%); entire roll of wheaties!
Machine wrapped Q's seem to be a bust; going to troll for hand wrapped Q's and do some further research...
Hand wrapped D's are much better than machine rolls. (I will probably stop searching D's after I find another 23 silvers to complete a roll I already have started)
Not much difference between hand or machine wrapped P's, both yielding about 20% pre-82's. The entire roll of wheaties was hand wrapped, so I will try to find more hand wrapped P's for further examination...
Next report will be on Friday, May 6.
Happy hunting, folks!
welcome to CT!
First 1/2 of a box of halves yielded 2 '64s. Hopefully the other 1/2 of the box does too. $50 in dimes had a '64. Also found a 2011 P.
man you guys are doing great! Last box I got was skunk, ordering another box tomorrow hopefully better.
I have 3 banks in the area - each using a different replenisher, Guarda, Brinks and Pendum - any ideas which usually yields higher results? So far Guarda has been my bread and butter
Edit: - Half Dollars sorry

I went "roll spotting" today (that is where I ask to see the clear rolled dims/quarters) and I got a silver dime from a roll at a grocery store.
I have been collecting and roll searching for one month now, and I have an embarrassing question to ask. What are silver dollars, how can you tell if they are silver, what years, how common are they (compared to silver halves), and do they come in rolls?
It's usually less than $1 per box, so I just say screw it.
