    I do the same in Excel. I copy and paste to a new spreadsheet, remove the columns with the names of the banks etc. and then paste to notepad then into CT.

    I'll start an April results thread.

    Hey everyone, I searched my 3rd box of halves and got my first silver coin ('68D). I included a picture of a '95 half that appears to have a rim error. I also went through my first box of nickels and got 2 silvers. There also appeared to be two error nickels, but I'm not sure. One has a smoothed rounded rim on the reverse side. The other nickel appears to be stained. I actually think it may be a plating error and the copper may be exposed. I may be completely wrong. Any thoughts or information would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Looks like damage not errors to me. As for the "stained" coin, it's not an error either it's toned. Looks like it was popped in the oven and artificially toned if you ask me.

    Big run today. I have ton of CWR halves to go through. hopefully something good in there. So far 1 40% from loose teller tray.

    Oooh let us know how it goes.

    Not sure about the half but neither of those nickels appear to be errors. You find crazily toned/stained nickels in circulation all the time, green blue red pretty much every color and tarnish pattern you can think of. They're not as bad as pennies, but nickels get pretty nasty. And I think that "rimless" nickel has just gotten worn down.

    Also nickels aren't plated, they're a nickel/copper alloy. Canadian nickels are plated now, though (as well as their other coins).

    1 box of Nickels. 1943 P , 1 dateless Buffalo, beautiful 1965d and 1966. I was dumping coins today and there was an older man already there grumbling about the credit union not taking rolls. He was nice but slow. I offered him Ikes for the pennies he had left (about $10 worth). He sold them to me and I got to use the machine. The tellers were smirking because they thought that I got one over on him. They were wrong, I did it because I had to get to class and it saved me a ton of time.

    Best halves day in a while, but nothing too spectacular.
    $120 CWR - 1 90% Ken, 5 40%.
    And the 5 40%ers came from some rolls that the teller said were dumped by somebody who said they were looking for silver. So apparently they weren't looking too hard. I almost didn't take them, but I'm glad I did. Now I guess I'll always take halves that tellers say are dumps.

    Finally finished the copper cents I sorted from the last box. Two 1960D small dates. One AU+ slider.

    Not much, but better than nothing, I guess.

    Never got the call today that my halves are in, so I figured I'd get some dimes and I'm glad I did.
    $250 in CWR = 1 x Merc & 4 x Roosie :D
    I went through at least $100 or so and nothing, then came the Merc, then the Roosie's

    When I really look at it 5 x silver dimes is fantastic. I was happy getting a 40%er out of those Loomis boxes I was getting. This is like getting a 90%er out of half a box of halves. Dimes are much easier to dump and it gives me an excuse to hit up a bank that I have scored loose halves out of their teller trays.

    Giddy Up!

    I forgot, they also had 7 Ikes they saved for me. Also another teller who was out at lunch had some halves for me "but they are all the copper ones". I don't think they're cherry picking silver, but they're not clueless when it comes to it. I've been training them well....

    yes....when I get the coins out of the rolls, I can hear the differences with the sliver coins

    btw, today I visited a small local credit union, got 5 Ikes & 3 1979S out of (500) $1 :)
