    Beginners luck (24) pre 70 halves. 5 proof halves?

    Metal detecting got me to this site and after some lurking I stumble onto the coin roll idea and the rest is history. Long story short, I picked up $150.00 in halves from the bank this morning and found a complete roll of 1967 halves. I'm hooked. Pics will follow soon!

    I also found 6 halves in very very nice shape with the S mark on them and 2 1972 with the same quality with no mint stamp?

    Good score. Just remember, if you plan to collect coins NEVER touch them without gloves. CRH is a different story because they have already been handled and abused to some extreme.

    Good job.

    But the 1972's are not proof. NOtice how the heads are not frosted? they are just as shiny as the rest of the coin. That's a giveaway. PLus they don'thave the S mint mark.

    FYI.

    Great score though.
