Redeeming by simply re-depositing at the branch of my choosing...after decades of being a customer they never even question a thing.
I take my time about it though. But I also take my time searching.
What you see will take me a week at least.
I still don't have any type of rolling machine or counting tray...I just re-roll them by hand.
Most of my searches aren't actually bank rolls. I do mostly vintage and mint rolls. I just started searching bank rolls again late last year, after almost 20 years of not searching rolls from the bank, true.
That explains why I'm excited like a little kid about doing these kind of searches once again!!!
I've had the same bank and been going to the same branches for about 25 years...so when I showed up last year, they 100% took care of me and now give me updates about the situation when I ask.
As a side note, my favorite large branch where they pretty much all know me (but not from coming in for rolls) is only about 6 miles from the Denver Mint
OK, as you were; carry on...
Do you look for errors on each coin or something? I can't imagine taking that long, that many coins would be about 3/4 hours over the course of the week for me.
I just open rolls, take out the silver/copper/old/oddities and reroll them.
Actually there are a few branches that have the coin counting machines...I don't bank at Well's Fargo, but I know from my ex that the big branch near me still has one. And if you have an account there they now have it in the lobby for customers to use themselves. You just deposit it with the receipt it gives you.
Ask at your bank...they are likely to know if any of their nearby branches have one, it's almost always no charge for customers.
I am using the same system I used decades ago...
Yup, it takes me a very long time compared to many folks, I assume.
For brand new uncirculated rolls, I really take my time and look for amazing specimens (and obvious varieties or errors) and lay the cherry picks out to re-check and compare to each other afterwards. Then stick the winners in flips for grading or whatever later. I also save the really nice ones to make some beautiful uncirculated rolls.
By the way, I absolutely do not have a steel trap of a memory! So I always have my references available to double check and remind myself what I'm also looking for, these days it's usually a few tabs open in my browser with some favorite variety/price guides. But I do have a new Redbook, as everyone should! I believe it's only about $8 on Amazon right now.
For searching circulated rolls I do a similar thing. I tend to stay away from the loupe or microscope unless something catches my naked eye or I'm checking on a known variety for that coin or date.
I keep it in a small space, very neat and clean and simple. An old clean mouse pad is a favorite coin pad for me and I clean it using a piece of packing tape That way I can break my search area down or set it up very easily. Usually doing just one or two rolls at a time.
Key point - my bank charges 10% to non customers
P.S. those staples look a little loose
Lol!!! They are loose...I use a cheap mini stapler and tighten the staples with an extra squeeze from my massively strong fingers before putting them away.
They are only temporary anyway...since the coins for grading won't go with any staples.
Many people have regretted having staples anywhere near their coins! I completely remove them before I dare open a flip. I also keep them in pages so they don't get stacked.
I want to start searching dimes again.
I failed to post my question with the photo. Forgive me.
coin rolls I don't need no stinking coin rolls (just kidding of course, I've noticed a few heated discussions lately )
wow how much value is there ? $3,000+ ?
I ve gone through about half of one bucket - was about 700$
