Update on recent finds

Coins | CoinHunter

Hello y'all!Today my blog is going to be about a scramble of different things. So, first of all, I am going to talk about some of the downsides of ordering coins from a bank/credit union. I recently had my dad order a large amount of coins from my credit union, a box of half dollars, box of quarters, 2 boxes of nickels and 2 boxes of pennies. Now you may be thinking, hmmm... he is guaranteed to find something great out of all of that! Well, it didn't quite turn out like that. First off, the half dollar box was a box that I had turned in a while ago and expected them to get rid of (my first ever half dollar box). Second, all of the nickel and penny boxes were OBW (original bank wrapped) 2021 coins. Fourthly, I had ordered the quarter box for my brother, so in the end, I had nothing to hunt. And now finally, he didn't end up finding anything (besides some nice ones and 2009s) in the whole quarter box, I was really thinking that there would be a W or two in there. Anyways, as he was hunting through the quarter box, I hunted through the coins a second time to look for varieties and was rewarded with three: a Colorado doubled ear, Wyoming DDR-024, and an Arizona extra cactus. I am going to get rid of the nickels and probably keep both of the penny boxes for now. I hope to get and keep a brand new box of pennies for every year from now on as long as I still can I currently have a 2020 and a 2021 penny box. Now I am going to tell you guys that I finally got my hands on some Tuskegee airmen quarters from my mom and bros change, I now have 8, how are you guys doing at coming across them. Just so you guys know, the the new Crossing the Delaware quarters are supposed to be released into circulation today, so keep an eye out for them. Also I am going to show off my entry for the National Coin Week youth Activity, to enter, you have to be 17 or younger, the activity is to make some sort of food that relates to something numismatic, I made a wheat penny pizza for my entry, are any of you guys entering? Thanks for reading this blog and have a great day!
