    Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, halves, or dollars, it doesn't matter. If you search for collectibles, rare dates, or oldies, post what you found! Don't forget, if you only found 1 goodie, its still good!

    I am trying to get rolls of halves. My bank doesn't carry them and wont order them. Ill ask my dad to ask his bank. I did find a 1906 Indian Head penny in a roll of pennies once at work. I quickly grabbed that up.

    I tried pennies a couple days ago and didn't find much. Got six rolls, no wheaties. But I did find a AU 1968-S and an Unc. 1972-D.
    I also tried dimes...just filled in a couple holes in my whitman folder.

    I bought a number of Jefferson rolls on ebay and ended up with near 80 RPM's or multiple strike mint marks. Wish I hadn't missed so many other rolls from that seller. I posted a couple here (variety nickels), but had many 53-s, rpm-002,3,4, and 54-s, 54-d, and a few other dates. Several are not yet attributed. Waiting for the Jefferson RPM update from CONECA, before I attempt attribution on a few.
    Lately, I'm getting into Morgan VAMs. Don't even need rolls to find interesting die variations. Many are already slabbed without attribution.

    Curiosity, if you pull a coin out of a mixed roll, how can it be Unc?

    I made out a list for my wife of what to look for at her place of business, and I check pocket change. I 've found a 98 wide a.m. cent and quite a few rpm's and 4 missing clad quarters, dimes and 1 quarter with missing clad on both sides. My wife has found maybe a dozen or so proof quarters, dimes and nickles from the 60's. The proofs are in great shape with one or two cams and a couple that have fingerprints, pays to look I guess.

    About 5 years ago I went to the bank and got $50 in halfs and the teller said a man brought in a roll of halfs to cash in that she had not seen before and wondered if I wanted them. Needless to say I said yes and could not wait to see them. When she gave them to me on the outside of the roll was 2 tail Franklin halfs so I knew I had a great deal (at .50 cents apiece) what I did not know was the roll contained 4 Franklin halfs, 10 walkers, 5 Barbers and last but the best of all an 1878 Seated Half that was a VG-F. I thought right then I would never get a better buy and so far I have not even been Close!!! (nor do I expect to be).

    I went through a box of nickels last night:
    42 Pre 1960
    1989-S Proof
    1943-P Wartime
    1945-P Wartime
    1945-S Wartime
    Last but not least, a 1913-S Type 1 Buffalo F-12. This is, so far, the oldest and most valuable nickel that I've pulled from a roll. Now if only I could find a 1916 DDO.....
