I have only ever found 2 older Canadians in all of the rolls I’ve searched that’s probably why I’m not interested in them lol. Some of the designs are quite cool and maybe if I find more older stuff I will be more interested in the future. The newer dimes are the ones I seem to get stuck with quite often
Laundry mat dryer coins
Why not pop it open at the bank? That's what I do. If it's a bunch of brand new coins that I don't want, I just deposit it right back into my account and they get it back.
Do you find them in the dryers or is this in ordinary circulation / rolls? (And if you find them in the dryers, how is that accomplished? It's not like you can pop the lint filter...)
You don't find them I constantly do with my boyfriend we find them all the time he's got enough to fill a book so that's really surprising find wheat pennies a lot too
That's hilarious I kept popping twenties in the laundromat LOL
So, what is your suggested approach to depositing bank rolled (i.e.: LOOMIS OBWs) that you've searched through looking for W mint marks? I reuse the original wrapper and tape back the end I opened. Do you have a different suggestion? Should I mark them in some way to know that they've been searched? I though the tape was the telltale sign.
Pretty much you covered it. my biggest peeve is cents or nickels or foreign coins or short changed rolls in quarter rolls. One $500 box cost me $18.50 never seen it so bad in my life tons of foreign and rolls that were one or two quarters short.
I ran into that while visiting my grandson in NC, we went through $10.00 in Lincolns to see if he could add anything to his newly started collection, when we went to the bank to turn them in I had marked them with a black pen to indicate to others that the rolls had been searched and they refused to accept them. I checked with BofA here in Springfield and they would accept them. I guess it depends on where you are.
I agree with Mark. I always try to re-wrap in the same wrappers. And when you get BWRs, the only way to do this is to carefully open one end, then when re-filled, fold over and tape that end. And yes, that should be a telltale sign. I also put a small "X" on the roll, which my CU knows and has no problem with. In fact, sometimes they tell me that the only coins they have are ones I brought back. I imagine they might tell other collectors that same thing. I'd hope they would tell me.
And I suppose it doesn't hurt that when I give them my account number they can see I have a fair amount of money in their accounts plus a home loan.
coins with black gunk on them, otherwise gem bu +++ but has greeen or carbon spots, coins stuck together, nickels in a quarter roll...(did i miss anything) lol but if we won all the time, it would be quite boring, me thinks
i love love love new ones, search for errors, greasers and ms-67 and higher to save for later sales
my bank only accepts loose coins....whick kind of sucks, cuz when i go to return em, any canadian get kicked back as rejects, even though got em in the brinks or loomis rolls to begin with
I get empty wrappers from the bank. Sometimes I can reuse older customer wrappers that remain empty due to the "keepers".
Is there any way to get credited for that stuff? I'd complain for sure.
I've never seen taped BWRs. It's only CWRs.
I hit a roll of straight 1979 SBAs last week. All were MS or close to it, really nice rims, BUT... each one had glue on the back. (When I got the roll, it looked like there were 28 or 29 coins in it, so I thought I hit a bonus. Nope - 25 coins, thickened by glue.) Obviously they had been glued to paper or posterboard, perhaps since 1979, and someone just decided to pull them and cash them in without removing the glue.
And of course none of the coins was a wide rim or a proof!
Are greasers really that valuable? I seem to find them all the time and to me they just look ugly, like a really weak strike.
mild ones (only a few letters missing, from 1.00 to 6.00 major ones where 1/3 of the coin or more can go upwards of 30.00 check out ebay and usa coin book, i have purchased a lot of them..i usually buy ones where 10% or more is blocked, the smaller types i get from rolling hunting...get em for face...people on here say nav, but there are people buying them, which means there is a market, hence value....
