    I haven't done any CR Hunting for years. I very seldom go to town. I had to go to the bank. I thought since I haven't looked at any rolls for a long time I would try. I was interested in the supply of coins in my little town.

    Tell me if the findings indicate a good chance in my little country. Out of 10 rolls I got
    1 ea. 1951P, 1956P, 1969S and 1970S.
    Does this represent any good chance that the coins have not been through the hands of collectors? Would you buy and search here based on this?

    I'm in the DC/Baltimore metro area and I usually get boxes. I average ~10 wheats per box. So break down would be 1 wheat per 5 rolls. Looks like your small sample comes out to the same :)

    I apologize, I did not mention that I was searching 10 rolls of Jeffersons. Sorry about that.

    The 69 and 70 S are cool. but not rare/ I keep all I find though just because I have a thing for S coins. The 69 S has a mintage of about 120 million nd the 70 S has about 238 Million. If out of 10 rolls, you only found 4 coins that are "keepers" ( I define keeper as anything below 1960). then it doesn't look promising to me. You might try some Customer wrapped rolls and do a mixture of pennies , nickels and quarters just to see what people may be turning in.

    At least you’re getting some older coins.

    I believe these were all customer wrapped according to the Teller. I want to test the water here. I found one wheat cent in 10 rolls of cents. It was a 1941 P. That tells me that the rolls would be random.

    Finding Pre-60 nickels is pretty common. I usually find a handful per box I search. Finding things like war nickels or buffalos is a bit lest, maybe 1 war nick per box and a buff every 4-5 boxes.

    Wow…. So a fellow can still score an old Buffalo searching rolls? That’s pretty cool.

    Sure can. They aren't super common around me but I've pulled several rolls worth in all of my searching. 2 "V" nickels as well. I think @Amberlarry22 has better results than I do though.

    You batted .200 on the Wheats. We got it at 1 every 6 rolls (.166), so you bettered it.

    I just remembered I have 8 rolls of Pennie’s I never searched. 3 bank rolled and 5 customer rolled. I’m going to search them real quick and post what I find. The bank rolls appear to be solid 2021. Let’s see.
