    What are your favorite coins to search through (and favorite coin in general)?

    I personally like pennies, as you almost never get a box of crap. Halves would be nice too, if I could find them. The walking liberty half is my favorite coin...sorry if this is in the wrong section, by the way.

    I like searching nickels and pennies the most. I think my favorite coins are war nickels; they were the first silver coin I found.

    Discovering clad dimes and halves in boxes. I've never been skunked once while searching for these.

    Re: What are your favorite coins to search through (and favorite coin in general)?

    First, let's all agree that we search boxes of cents. We aren't in England. We don't have a penny. Sorry, just a small pet peeve. I know the boxes are labeled pennies, but it doesn't make it right. Anyhow, the cents I enjoy searching as that is how I started my coin collection at 9. The halves can be rewarding, but very frustrating when you hit a skunk run. Sometimes, it just isn't worth the hassle and I take a break from halves, but the itch returns. Dimes are another favorite as they are easy and lightweight. Been filling glass cigar tubes for some time.

    Howdy Mr. Weston, fellow CRHers,

    I like pennies....er.....cents. I like nickels too. I think I like the nickels better though, not so dirty. I want a buffalo nickel. I'm pretty sure that that the buffalo nickel is my second favorite American coin after the incuse quarter eagle/half eagle (not much hope of finding one of those in circulation though). I've never done a box of halves, although I may start soon.

    My wife likes searching through the halves. Her favorite coin in general is the Walking Liberty.

    Kindest regards,
    Kantuck

    ALL OF THEM !!!! No really, I enjoy nickels because I never seemed to get skunked and you can find a little bit of silver and CENTS or PENNIES, Oh heck lets call them PENTS (just kidding Diver_Down), because they have alot of errors and varieties. And there is never a shortage of copper to keep out of the rolls.

    for sorting anything that can have silver in it --- I like all the older coins -- they had style and the art work is nice --todays coins stink when put beside the old stuff --and I will not say what I think of zincolns --since this is a "family forum"

    Pennies and nickels, they take me back to my youth.

    "Cents" may be accurate and official Diver_Down, but the term has drawbacks in clarity.

    Look at the following statement:

    "I have seven cents in my pocket."

    That could be a nickel and two one-cent coins or simply seven one cent coins.

    But if you say...

    "I have seven pennies in my pocket."

    ...you know exactly what I've got. You also know I'm not a rich guy.
