DDO, Shrink-Wrapped Rolls and More! | Coin Update #52

| CoinHunter

Hello all!


Well, since I've been busy and haven't been able to post for a while I have a lot of stuff to share, so let's begin!


Today I have lots of finds from different hunts to share along with a few more purchases for my collection.



So, since the last blog I have got two dime boxes, a nickel box, 10 rolls of quarters, and two cent boxes to hunt. The dime boxes were both like 98% brand new and haven't produced anything as of yet (I haven't gotten to the second box yet). The nickel box was also mainly brand new and wouldn't have produced any finds if it weren't for a 2009-D (which is actually pretty crazy since it is only the third 2009 nickel I have ever found!). The 10 rolls of quarter were pretty awesome because even though they didn't produce a silver, any W's, or even a 2022 quarter, they did surprise me with a coin that I have been looking for for a long time—a DDO-001 2020-P Salt River Bay quarter. This variety shows quite obvious doubling on IN GOD WE TRUST along with slight doubling elsewhere. Lastly, the cent boxes. Okay, so, one of them was mainly customer wrapped (I'll explain in a bit), and the other was machine wrapped. I haven't hunted the machine wrapped one yet (or another machine wrapped penny box that I got at some point and haven't gotten to), but I did hunt the other box. The other box had like 45 typical customer wrapped rolls (except for a few that said "New" on them which were mainly shield cents), my first ever 4 shrink wrapped penny rolls, and my first ever Loomis penny roll (I usually get what I think are Brinks rolls). The shrink wrapped rolls are pretty cool because coins haven't been wrapped in that way for quite a while now. Anyways, that box of pennies produced one wheat penny—a 1926, a 1959 strike-through, and a really nicely clashed 2016 shield cent.


Now that I've shared all of my finds, I'll briefly share some recent purchases. Okay, so the first three things are a few wins off of GC: a nicely toned 1954 Roosie dime (Yes, I am going to try and keep going with a blue/purple toned dime set), a 1962 PF-69 Roosie for my '62 proof set registry set, and a lastly a nice MS-62 walking liberty half. The last purchase is actually my first ever purchase off of the US Mint's website. I really like the second quarter design for this year (the Sally Ride design), so I though I'd get a couple rolls of 'em. I actually picked up a set that comes with a roll of P's and a rolls of D's. I plan on picking the best ones (possibly submitting some of them if they are nice enough), and flipping the rest for a profit.


Anyways, thanks for reading my blog, enjoy the large amount of pics, and have a great week!


P.S.

Wait, wait, wait! I almost forgot--my brother showed me his change the other day (mainly because two of the quarters were 2022, I flipped over the 2020 Weir farm quarter to see if it was a W and saw that it was an S! I've now found two of these NIFC quarters.

Nice samples, is that dark cent a reaction to something ?

The dark cent actually was most likely once in the ground.

That DDO-001 was my first ever doubled die. It was a great day when I found it. Took a while for me to figure out it was a DDO-001 though. Loomis rolls of cents are the ONLY kind of cent rolls I can get my hands on down here, bar the occasional customer wrapped roll once every 100 rolls or so. And Mike, that coin actually ISN'T a proof! Read my blog I did on them! Could we get some pics of the 2016 clash? The shield clashes are awesome. I don't have on yet, but I'm halfway through a box on cents, so maybe in the near future!

Fixed--I'll get a better pic of the clash up soon (hopefully).

Wait one second--I didn't even upload that photo...

CoinHunter

Cool. Ya, depending on where you are you'll get certain kinds of rolls. Most of the people I've seen on Youtube (RobFindsTreasure for example) get Loomis rolls. Ya, sorry, I'll try to get some better pics of the clash on here soon--I couldn't get rid of the glare in the group photo. Good luck!

You got some great finds and purchases! I do agree that the Sally Ride design is very nice and one of my favorites of the Women’s quarter program. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah I know but what I meant was of the 2022 designs.

CoinHunter

Level 5

It may not be your favorite for long---there are still three more years (15 designs) coming! My pleasure!

If you have an S in those they should be proof!! I know your finds are great. I started doing inventory. I would start that now!! Because your going to have to break each coin down and everything it is. Mine will take months. And already have found coins I don't remember buying! That's for the update. You prove that they are out there!! Good luck!!

Well, actually they have been making non-proof S mint quarters since 2010.
