    From Erin's description, it was not a Booker T Washington Commem, it was a Washington/Carver Commem (with both of them).

    Pics of the Commemorative

    First ever attempt at pics of a coins so here goes. Hopefully it looks ok. What do you guys think? Found in a roll of halves...

    I have no idea if these will even do it justice but very easy to read the coin.

    Today's results:

    Not much luck in the pennies - searched 36 rolls

    3 Wheats, 2x 45d, 1x 56d

    Was starting to get frustrated with my nickel box, too but it ended well...
    3 prewar - 2x 39, 1x 41
    no silvers
    1 x canadian

    and, with three rolls left there was a 1927 buffalo

    My first one from rolls!

    Probably not worth more than a dollar, but a lot more exciting to me than finding the cud penny a couple of weeks ago.

    Never thought I'd draw a buffalo nickel from circulation, but there it was!

    P.S. Because I'm strange, I keep all nickels from before 1970. I notice that I find an inordinant number of 1964 and '64d. So I look up the mintage to see that the US minted more nickels in '64 than any other year before or since. Does anyone know why they did this?

    Thanks for the note, Wiggam. The other thread pretty much says the same thing... The mintage was high. But only speculation as to why. Interesting, though.

    2 1952 Canadian Penny
    2 Canadian Comm.
    1957 Canadian Penny
    UNC 2004, 2005, 2006 Canadian Pennies
    3 Rail Splitters
    2 Log Cabins
    2 1950 Wheat Pennies
    1957D X2
    1940 X2
    1951D X3
    1952D X3

    1947P

    I would say that this was a good box also 1 of the 1940P pennies I found had a reverse of a UNC. 1958D which I thought was cool

    Bobbeth do you know what your total for silver finds is? It seems like your adding more just about every day. Nice finds!

    Nice finds lincolnhoardr,still looking for my first WAM.The 1911 find is pretty cool too.I found the cruddiest 1914 p you'll ever see a couple weeks ago. It's amazing you can still find that old a coin in circulation.
    Here's my find over the weekend. 1995 doubled die(wavy steps).

    I started roll searching and bank scavenging for halves around May. I started a spreadsheet of my finds:

    27 boxes searched, plus $1154 in loose rolls and loose halves

    4 Walkers
    6 Franklins
    28 1964 Kennedys (Total of 38 90% silvers)

    137 1965 - 1970 Kennedys
    1 1976 S Kennedy (Total of 138 40% silvers)

    Total silver coins 176

    I feel extremely fortunate. I never dreamed there was that much silver out there...
