Pretend You've been Teleported Back To 1930.
I just thought of something pretty cool. Look into your wallet and count your cash. Now, picture you were sent back to the year 1930 with only the cash in your wallet and you had to buy rolls from a bank.
1. You can obviously only use the amount of cash you have in your wallet.
2. You can pick between pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and half dollars.
3. You have to get AT LEAST 1 of each
Example: I have $67 in my wallet right now. I would pick:
3 rolls of halves ($30)
2 roll of quarters ($50)
2 rolls of dimes ($60)
2 rolls of nickels ($64)
6 rolls of pennies ($67)
What would you end up with?
LOL I just looked in my wallet and realized I had one penny. Gave my last 5 dollars to the church collection plate. I guess I would settle for a penny.
Well, I have $42 right now, so here's what I'll get:
25 MS67 Morgans (scratch that out) Barber Halves from the bank
1797 MS65 1909 S VDB Cents from the bank
I'll be rich!!

I am a little low on cash right now, I have 78 dollars in my wallet, with that I buy A roll of silver dollars, a roll of half dollars, 3 rolls of quarters, 2 rolls of dimes, and 16 rolls of pennies.
The great recession is going full steam, people have been digging into their little coin savings to make payments, The silver dollars are all 1927 peace dollars unc, the half dollars are mostly walking liberties, a couple in nice shape with the obverse mm, a couple well worn barbers, the quarters are almost all slq.s no 1916 in their but some nice pre 1925, and some newer ones in unc shape. the dimes I am finding lots of 1923's and 1929s, the cents are all over, I find 6 indian heads in the 16 rolls, my best find is a 22 no d.
I am glad the teller did not notice that my cash looked different than the notes that were circulating in 1930
i only have some lint in my wallet so.... some 1930 lint!!!
*looks in wallet* looks like I'm going back to 1930 and not coming back with anything!

EDIT: And since we were only sent back with *ONLY* the cash in our wallets, and can only purchase rolls, we might be getting some strange looks from people... a bunch of people going to the bank, naked, with handfuls of cash

I have a bit over $300 in my wallet - I would buy up all rolls of cents. Forget the gold, the silver etc. Cents pack the best return on long term investment over time.
All gave some, some gave all - Remember The Heroes!
You guys are so small-time it's pitiful! LOL!
First of all, most banks didn't carry rolls in those days. Coins were in bags. Secondly, you would probably be escorted directly to jail for trying to pass counterfeit bills. A 199x note in 1930? Yeah! Right! The third problem is that you would upset the entire time/space continuum of the planet by altering history.
If teleportation was possible, I'd rather go into the future and get the winning lottery numbers for a $300 million Powerball ticket. You wouldn't be altering history and you could afford to buy just about any coin you wanted.
i onoy have 1 dollar in my pocket in pennies 1909 s vdb's
I have this dream everynight
Cents not pennies
I have $104 in my wallet.
I would get
2 rolls of halves
2 rolls of quarters
2 rolls of dimes
5 rolls of nickels
88 rolls of cents
I would definitely get more cents than anything else.
