    Haven't had a chance to roll search in the last few days because of labor day, but i did pull a 1963 Canadian cent out of my till at work today. Obverse is nearly worn off but the back looks good.

    Has anyone received coin rolls that are like shrink wrap around them ? When i receive them you can see both ends and the rims ,
    they are packed tight , the wrapper is hard to remove very odd, where do these come from.

    Sandy, those are the brinks wrappers that I used to get when I ordered coins from my bank. They make it easy to look at the rims of the coins, but they are awful to open.

    Those are Brinks wrappers. If you squeeze the roll sideways, like you are trying to flatten out the stack (think like a deck of cards spread out sideways), the coins will all slide out. Nice and easy.

    I've been taking pics of boxes and wrappers to start a thread for a sort of "encyclopedia" of wrappers and whatnot. I'll post a link when I get it started.

    4 CWR of dimes on my way to the park with my daughter: nothing.

    Also - I 'm having a similar problem that someone else noted earlier: the thread shows that there is another page (beyond post #15644), but I can't navigate to it. I tried with Firefox and Chrome. Weird.

    The halves have been tuff, you are making up for it with all the War Nickels you have been pulling.

    Had some extra time today and decided to turn in a box of nickels I had done earlier. Wasn't planning on getting coins, but decided to stop and get another nickel box. I pulled 2 war nickels. Also, I got super excited when I saw the faint "V" on the back of a nickel. It is almost completely worn, I would say FR02, but turns out it is an 1888, my oldest coin from circulation. The coin had been around for 100 years 2 years before I was born... WOW!
