DDR, Cud Error, and more-found!| Coin Update #24

Coins | CoinHunter

Hello all and welcome to another blog!


The topic of today’s blog is going to be a recent coin roll hunt of mine.


So, first off I am going to explain how and where I got the coins to hunt; secondly, I am going to tell you what coins I got to hunt; and third, I am going to tell you what I found.


After I hunted my second-ever half dollar box, I was left with a bunch of normal, unwanted half dollars to get rid of somehow. I would have turned them into the branch of my bank that I normally get coins from, but, last time I did that it backfired when I ordered another box of halves and the bank simply gave me the same box of half dollars back (I didn’t realize it till it was to late because they had put it in a box and taped it up). So, to hopefully avoid this problem, I took the half dollars and some other hunted coins to a different branch of my bank that I had never gotten coin from before. In exchange for the coins, I picked some other coins to hunt (my usual routine). I was able to get 5 customer wrapped rolls of nickels, five customer wrapped rolls of quarters, and 31 rolls of machine wrapped quarters. Out of the 5 rolls of nickels I found some older ones, including a 1950-P that I needed for my folder, and , surprisingly enough, my second-ever 2020-P DDR-001 Jefferson Nickel. IN the 5 rolls of customer wrapped quarters I had some nice finds. First, immediately after I dumped out the third roll, I spotted a coin with a V75 privy mark towards the end of the roll. It turned out to be my third ever found Samoa (or bat) W quarter and the 10th w quarter I have found. Also, later in these five rolls of customer wrapped quarters, I found my first-ever 2005-P West Virginia Quarter with a cud error at about 4 o-clock. Now to tell you what I found in the thirty-one rolls of machine wrapped quarters. First off, I am keeping a roll that I am pretty sure is a whole roll of 2021-P Crossing the Delaware Quarters. I think it is a brand new roll because it has a 2021 CTD quarter on each end and the roll feels a little lighter than a normal roll. Also in the thirty one rolls, I found a DDR Wyoming quarter and a 2015 Homestead Nebraska Quarter with the “Snow On the Roof” variety.


Thanks so much for reading this blog, enjoy the pics, and have a great day! -CoinHunter

Great finds coinhunter! I like to search coin rolls also, but don't do it very often. I have fished and done some swimming in that New River after it gets down in Virginia! Thanks for sharing.

I need to look closer at my change rather than tube it or toss it in a can.

CoinHunter

You probably should, you'll never know what you will find!

Awesome finds! I do a little error hunting myself, but only with change. Do you suggest starting to hunt through rolls too?

CoinHunter

Just messaged you with answers. Thanks!

Also, what numismatic references do you use to know which errors to find? Is there a specific book or webpage?

Well done. You are one lucky guy with good eyes. Great photos. The only one I don't see is the 2020 DDR. Where is the doubling. Hard to see without the coin in hand and my tired, old eyes. Thanks and carry on.

There isn't any "doubling" really, it is more of a spread. Thanks!
