    When you search nickel rolls do you loupe every coin for errors or toss some dates / mints straight back and only set aside certain years for closer scrutiny? If so which years and mints do you look at?

    You could pick up a cherry pickers guide book and pull known variety dates to the side or give all the coins a good look in hope to discover a new variety. It depends on how much time you have to devote.

    Have fun!

    I look at everything ealier than 1970 under a loupe then look at the common RPM dates for the rest.

    When roll searching I divide them up by dates and mintmarks. Toss the newer ones into bins and sort those quickly under a loupe looking die cracks, die chips etc. Then I search the known RPM/DDO/DDr under a loupe.

    i keep ever5y thing before 1960 and most of the ones upto 1990 with full steps. i look at all that aren't marked up with a 12x then trade them back in.
