    Loomis penny box yielded seven wheat pennies. Leading the way was a pretty 1919-D and a crusty 1953-S.

    Looks like a cracked planchet on the war nickel. Which was a result of the new alloy mix. (Laminations too.) Still more value than just silver melt I believe. Possible lamination/ delamination? I can't tell what's going on the obverse.

    Interesting day yesterday. First I went to local bank to do a coin dump in the self serve coin machine and found a couple coins on the magnet catch. Two we're Canada quarters, didn't realize they were magnetic. Also found this round "coin" from Dyno Nobel which after researching is an explosives company, still not sure what this thing is.
    Was able to pick up a box of dimes and 1 box of quarters. The dime box was a skunk but did score a 1964 Washington quarter, 2013 S Shawnee(business strike proof?), also found a Arizona "extra cactus" and two Homestead "snowy roof". No W's but happy with the finds, especially the silver which is my #1 goal and that's tough in quarters it seems.

    Here are the results from my customer wrapped dimes and quarters I posted about yesterday. Not as good as I hoped. Zero silver's or W's in the $300 dollars in quarters. I did set aside 7 nice condition state quarters. There was some really nice National Park Quarters if only there had been W mm I could have had some very nice looking coins. The $400 in dimes was a little better with 3 silver's (1948, 1957, 1964). Two foreign, one a Canadian dime and the other says Estados Unidos Mexicanos 50¢. Keep in mind these were customer wrapped by an older person. Some of the rolls were a little odd. I can see maybe not catching a Canadian dime maybe even not catching the Mexican coin even though it's a bit smaller but a penny? Really?
    Also the amounts were not all accurate. Some rolls had less than 50, like 42, 46, 48, 49, one even had 51. That's just some of the few I actually counted. Kinda hard to believe that now a days a bank would take cw rolls and not count them. Wasn't super awesome but happy to get 3 silver dimes, that's way better than a skunk. I won't know how much I actually got shorted until I turn them back in.

    The silver makes up for the shortage... part of the game.

    The banks I use weigh the rolls before accepting.

    Wonder what they do with any that are overweight (from extra coins or silver)?

    Seattlite86 Outspoken Member

    Mine will never have extra coins or silver ;) if the weight is off, they pull the coins and check/count.

    Changing bank venues on my latest nickel box produced some surprising finds. Two dated buffalo nickels paved the way followed by a 1947-S Jefferson. The early decade count included a 1939 (P), eight from the 1940s, and six from the 1950s.

    I was just mentioning how I haven't seen ANY quarters that were issued August 2023 or October 2023. Well I just picked up 2 rolls and one may be a full Maria Tallchief roll (Oct) prima ballerina. There is an ender and the other end is a shiny 2023. I haven't seen any Jovita Idar (journalist teacher) which came out last August. I will post a photo of my album keeper later. Gonna be a space between Eleanor and Maria and by the time I see any it's going to be hard to find an album keeper.

    A while back we each got 2 rolls and I had 20 looks at a W. 0-20. Last time she got the magic 2 rolls with 3 S proofs and 11 looks 0-11. Well this 1st roll which wasn't the Maria Tallchief roll, I only had 1 look (0-1) but another dazzling S proof Mount Rushmore mintage 920,000. It couldn't have been in circ long as the rev is nearly flawlesss with a few minor nicks on the obverse. Here's my first look at a Maria Tallchief. The roll was full and they all had great luster, but the coin counting and rolling machine nicks them up, so I try to get one for the album where there's not too much noise on the figure or in the large blank fields. One with flash, one without. Bottom with flash.

    I have never roll hunted nickels before but when the bank told me they had $180 in customer wrapped nickel rolls I bought them. Bank also said that a man passed away and someone from the family brought in his coin collection to cash in and they thought it was possible that some of these rolls could be part of that collection (I don't think it was).
    2- Canadian
    Unfortunately I set the two 1939's aside to look at better today and now I can't find them. Hopefully they turn up.

    I had interesting results searching half dollar boxes. These are the results of the last 5 boxes opened.
    4-1966, 1-1964, 1-1960 Ben Franklin ender. One of the 1966 Kennedy's was a obverse facing out ender but my son who helps me opened it before he noticed it being silver. Out of six silver's, 3 we're enders. Another ender was some kind of gold plated bicentennial and the last ender was another Hopalong Cassidy Good luck token. This makes 3 of the Hopalong tokens.
    Also found a 2001 P U.S Capital Visitor Center clad commerative, a 1987 NIFC, and a bicentennial clad proof, and a Battle of Bull Run sticker coin. Another interesting thing about the last two boxes was that one box was loaded with 2023 P coins, some entire rolls at times. When I saw that I was disappointed thinking I wouldn't find anything but all though about half the box was 2023's the box still have up 3 of the silver's while the other circulated box had zero silver's.
