Another Bummer, and… …Silver!|Coin Update #28

Coins | CoinHunter

Hello all and welcome to another update!


This update is going to be about some of my recent coin roll hunts.


Well, by now you guys are probably wondering what I found in the half dollar box and $40 in nickels (if you have read my previous blog. If not then know this: I ordered a half dollar box and $40 in nickels from my bank), I went to the bank to pick up all of the coins, and while I was there, I asked if I could get an additional $10 in nickels (so that I would have exactly half a box worth). All went well with getting the coins. They were all circulated rolls (not brand new). The half dollar box was machine wrapped (thank goodness) while the nickels were customer wrapped. Now here comes the bummer! I hunted through the entirety of the half dollar and nickels, and what did I find? Hardly anything! No silver, no major varieties (although I did find a 1989-P half that I am pretty sure qualifies as a No FG), no errors, no proofs etc. All I found was a couple of 2010 halves, a 1989-P (maybe) No FG, a couple of older nickels, and a Canadian nickel. I keep all of the Canadian coins I find/acquire in a glass jar, it is nearly full and last time I counted it was around $25 face value. It was kind of disappointing as you can imagine, but the next day I think I made up for it. That day, I went to my credit union and picked up a pretty small amount of coins (for me). I got 11 rolls of quarters and 10 rolls of dimes. On my way home, I started surveying the coins (as I usually do for something to do). By surveying I mean dumping out a few rolls of each denomination into my hand and quickly checking how many coins are newer, if they are all silver, etc. While “surveying” I dumped out a slightly worn looking quarter roll, and I instantly saw what I knew was a silver edge. Now some of you probably would have simply taken it out and looked at the date, but not me. I quickly but the coin back in the wrapper with the rest of the coins just as it was so I could find it later. Well anyways, it was a pretty worn 1936 silver quarter. With that coin, I have now found 16 silver coins. Totaling out at almost 2 ounces worth and a silver melt value of about $46.


Thanks for reading this update, enjoy the pic(s), and have a great day!

You must understand there is a large age difference between you and I. However my respect for what you do is beyond reproch. I to coin roll. Collecting there is no age difference just sharing our stories about coins. You passion for rolling is one that I respect. Keep up the good. Work. I know one day you will find that box in the bottom of a vault.

I totally agree with @Mike. If there is anyone who could find (and deserves to find) a unopened box of BU Franklin Rolls, it’s you.

You are very devoted to coin rolling. This being said. I believe you will hit the mother load some day. The box of Franklin's they don't know they have. This is how there found. Good luck. Find that hoard!!

I'm just curious if your credit union is giving you a look when you return rolls. Most banks do. Nice finds!

CoinHunter

CheerioCoins

If only it was a 1932-S, am I right?

Great looking quarter. You might want to check on those no FG coins. I believe that the Cherry pickers Guide has decided that it is not an error. Instead they are calling them grease filled dies. I know they are doing it for Lincoln Cents. Sad story. Not for now. Thanks for the update.🐍
