Update #13: My Famous Last Words

Young Numismatists Exchange | thatcoinguy

Hello fellow YNs and YNH!


So...as you might see from the picture and title, a weird thing happened yesterday. After the release of the "Just A Roll Searching Recap" blog, I decided to get some rolls, as my school break ends Monday (😥) and I will probably not get many rolls to search next week. So after hopping in the car, I went to a Truist branch I hadn't been to before. After turning in about $200 in various denominations of rolls, I asked what rolls they had. They asked me want I wanted (all the tellers do this now because of the "coin shortage" never mind the fact that they all have three full boxes of every denomination in the back 🙄). I asked for $80 in nickels, because I had deposited the $200 and only had $80 in cash.


After checking their vault they store rolls in (this bank had the least amount of rolls I have ever seen, so maybe this bank, at least, could claim there was a coin shortage), the teller came back and said she could give me all the nickel rolls they had ($20, or 10 rolls), and asked if I wanted anything else. I asked if I could have the remaining $60 in quarters, but after they looked to see how many they had (only a few) they gave me all they had, which was $30 in quarters, or three rolls. The nickels yielded four 40’s and three 50’s, but the quarters was were it got interesting. For the first time in a Loomis roll, I found a W! It is my second W (I previously found a 2019-W RNR) and I am thrilled. Still looking for the 2020-W with the privy mark, but that can wait.


In terms of other roll hunts, I have done a few in between update #12 and this one, but nothing super special. I have passed 1,000 $YN by a wide margin, and can't wait to start spending them in auctions to come. Thanks to all the donors who make this possible!


As the holiday season is approaching, people are turning in more change to have spending money, which means better/more roll searching finds. I am going to do a ton of searching over the upcoming holiday break, and can’t wait to share the finds with you guys as they come in.


Keep collecting,

Hehe. Maybe I shouldn’t have told you that, now you might outbid me. I have enough I don’t think you’ll out $YN me soon, though. Can’t wait for next year’s yearly auction. Thatcoinguy is coming by storm!
