    Pocket Coin Hunting or PCH

    Always check my change that I get back from business. This morning I stopped by my usual haunt, Dunkin Donuts, for a cup of fresh brewed nirvana. Slipped the 98 cents in change right into the old pocket and left the store on the way to work.

    All morning long I have been hearing a strange but familiar sound in my pocket where I keep my change. This pocket is also where I keep my car keys. Finally it got on my nerves enough to pull everything out of my pocket and see what was making
    that racket.


    Staring up at me was a 1964 quarter, first silver I have recieved in change in over six months and I didn't even do my normal scan before placing the change in my pocket. Had I noticed at the counter, I would have asked to buy all
    the quarters in her cash drawer. Oh well, guess coffee was free this morning and I got to pocket a few extra dollars as well.

    That's awesome, Freedom. Funny you mention it but at the Dunkin Donuts up the street from me, I noticed a 1925 Buffalo in their tip cup. I did the ol' swap by exchanging a Jefferson for it. Even through in an extra dime because I felt a little guilty for doing so.

    That same D&D's given me a couple old wheats in change, including a 1917 D. Funny what's still floating around out there.

    I almost put a 1936 quarter in a vending machine last year. Not sure what store gave it to me in change. Last week I got a 52-D wheatie from my pharmacy/$ store

    Re: Pocket Coin Hunting or PCH

    Ever since last January when I officially became "silver aware" I have always checked my pocket change. In those past 13 months I have received 3 silver quarters and I think 2 silver dimes in change from stores. Funny, before my silver enlightenment I always used to pay in exact change if I had it. Now I always pay in paper cash and look forward to searching the pocket change.

    Great example of the saying "Luck's not random, it favours the prepared"

    Me too! Or sometimes, I'll try and pay the change with clad with quarters and dimes to get back the maximum number of pennies/nickels. I love getting coppers in change!

    Happy pocket change hunting,

    Re: Pocket Coin Hunting or PCH

    It doesn't hurt to be lucky! Unfortunately that is one thing I am not. I remember the first - AND ONLY - silver coin I have ever gotten in my pocket change and it was a long time ago. My Dad got me into collecting as soon as I was old enough to read the dates on the coins, and I quickly learned what the "clink" of silver sounded like. I remember it well. We were at the drug store. I was checking out the comic books next to the counter and heard silver as a woman paid her bill. I quickly spotted the silver Rosie. I told my dad and he handed me a dollar bill, told me to buy a comic book, and ask for all dimes in change. Imagine that...buying a comic book with a dollar and getting multiple dimes in change! I believe the comic cost 25 cents. I did and snagged the 1964 Rosie. Thats the only silver coin I have ever received in my pocket change, and I had spotted it beforehand. I'm guessing that was around 1975.

    Back in college I also worked a couple of different jobs over the course of about 2 years that had me running a cash register. I broke open hundreds - if not thousands - rolls of dimes, quarters, and nickels. I would find an occasional wheatie, but never found silver. The only silver I ever found running the register was when a man paid for a soda with a half dollar. It was a beat up '63 Ben. He looked at it funny before handing it over. I saw it before he did.

    I also check the reject tray at every coin counter I come across, be it in a bank, Wal-Mart, or wherever. Not only have I never found silver, I have never found a single coin. Not one.

    Still looking though!
