    Cazkaboom One for all, all for me.

    Well, I am split between Roll and Strap searching and coin roll hunting. I'll go with Roll and Strap Searching.

    I voted for Coin Roll Hunting. No offense to the paper money collectors, but I didn't think it would be a good idea to mix the two together. The rest of the suggested forum names seem a bit ambiguous and might be confusing for newcomers.

    I like Rescued from Circulation.
    Its a bit out there but I use that terminology all the time. i.e. "I rescued this one from circulation today"

    I don't see why the forum should have an uncreative name, why must it be SOOOO uniform, that is why I chose "Big game Hunters"

    I think face value finds is the best heading for it. Thats what we pay for it, and why we do it!!!

    Well, I picked one of the more non-creative names: Roll and Strap Searching. Simply because I find the fun in the searching, and although I look at my change (what I would think of as "bringing it in from the wild), I really like getting the rolls from the bank (bwr and cwr) and searching (hunting for treasure there) and putting that with strap searchers also is including the currency hunters who do the same thing. Plus, in the long run, I think a more normal descriptive name will outlast the fanciful ones. Sort of like naming your kids Michael, James, Henry, Justin, Marshall, etc. instead of Dweezel or Frosty.

    Yeah, and someone will walk in the door thinking its the bathroom.

    I have no idea. I am just thrilled that you are making the fourm. I suppose "rescued from circulation," because the coin will be doing the talking, or "bank and circulation finds," because it sounds so official. " Excuse me mamm I'm here on official business (leans in and whispers "bank and circulation finds.") Right on.

    I went with "From the Wild" since metal detector finds and the like would be encompassed boy this title.
