Black Friday Deals at the bank

Discussion in 'Coin Roll Hunting' started by They_Call_Me_Opa, Nov 25, 2022.

  1. While at the bank, I asked for a few hundred in rolls, and they proceeded to give me these....
    The open roll is 1920-D, and it goes L to R by decade (starting with 1930's!!!

  3. The story I got was that some young adults cashed them in after their grandparents passed. The bank said all of the rolls were labeled by year & MM, and that the kids had even older coins. They convinced the kids to take the oldest coins to a collector.

    What a good bank pickup!
  7. So, starting with the 1920 roll...
    Most are in the G6- VG10 range. About 25%have considerable damage....and very few bear the D
    It's OK though, still a great day! 20221125_225029.jpg

    Awesome day at the bank. I'd say 100% of the time I'd be thrilled with your cache. For you to say, 'it's OK though', could be the understatement of the year.

    One recommendation though. If you 'fan out' the coins going in the other direction we'll be able to see all the dates. ;) I know I'd much prefer seeing that over seeing one date and just evidence that the others were all older cents.
  9. Good idea. I'll repost the results of that roll, and stay with that for the rest.

  10. Don't get me wrong, I am completely ecstatic...if any are in great condition!
    I opened the oldest label and found it to be a tad misleading and somewhat of a letdown.
  11. My apologies friends. I did not account for the proper photography skills to illustrate condition and verify the age of each coin. here is the 1920-D roll.
    36/50 were salvageable, and all of the keepers are no mm. 20221126_094052.jpg
  12. Here is 1/2 of the 1930's (two were trashed) 20221127_095702.jpg

    Keep in mind that varieties offer the greatest opportunity for a high value coin. DDOs...RPMs...especially since you have a number of MM rolls. Good luck on the hunt! A timely event on Black Friday.

  15. 1966-P_DDR.jpg My apologies for walking away from this post...been a busy few months.
    I went through all of the 1998, 1999, & 2000 rolls and came up empty handed on any DD, or Wide AM. So, moving on randomly.
    Tonight I grabbed a 1966 roll and found several that appeared to have doubling on the reverse, but am leery dur to the wear on the coins. Thoughts?

  16. 1955-D_BIE.jpg Just peeled open a 1955-D roll, and found this gem...
  17. 1920-P_O.jpg 1920-P_R.jpg Check out the planchet crack on this 1920 cent. Looks like some damage near the rim.
  18. 1920-OH_O.jpg 1920-OH_R.jpg Another interesting find...
    Looks like a 1920-O...That would be AWESOME! Really though, knowing that is not a possibility, I am thinking its a stain of some sort.

    Not sure where you see the planchet crack. The coin is an Improperly mixed aloy. AKA "Woodie"
    The area on the rim and wheat stalk is a retained lamination.
  20. Best 1930 in this roll.....
