I don't mind searching through a box of halves only to get skunked. IT still feels cool to sort uncommonly found coins and they are big and easy to see. Sorting through skunk box of dimes on the other hand succkks

With all the Brinks rumors, do you ever do Brinks dimes?

SOLID 1975? 1975 halves do not exist (as far as I know of, maybe you discovered a new half). Also, that might have been someone collecting by date who dumped them.

1) I generally do not do Brinks box of dimes because I find the yield is lower. If you check my entire thread you will find some examples of brinks boxes
2) 1975 Kennedy half dollar does not exist, or 1975 washington quarter or 1975 Ike dollar. All quarters, half dollars and dollar coins minted in 1975 and 1976 were minted with the year 1776-1976.
3) I have come across solid rolls of copper nickel clad half dollars, someones collection they decided to dump.
4) Rumors are just that, I ignore them since even if they are true elsewhere in the country, that doesn't make them true where I live.

Looks like you find a lot of silver Canadian dimes. It must be the issue that silver Canadian coinage is passing through the magnets in the counting machines and get confused with the American coins, because neither stick to the magnet. Have anyone found pre 1937 Canadian dime by CRHing?
0/5 Mercury dimes
0/10 Tombac nickels
0/10 War Nickels
0/1 Silver dollar
3/2 Silver half-dollar
14/100 silver dime
1/10 George V nickel
150/100 Wheat cents
2/5 Indian Head Penny
1/1 2006 no P magnetic
4/4 Clipped planchet
1/1 Blank planchet

1. Brinks are the clear-wrapped ones, right? I got a box with 22 silver dimes last month.

If the last of these is the case, God forbid you dumped them.

I'm about to try CRHing some Dimes today If my banks do not have any CRW Halves. Has anyone been successful with CRW dimes? I'll probably only try $50 so it's not high volume so I'm not expecting much.
May 04, 2012, 12:28 PM
I have, including a 1900 Victoria...oldest Canadian via dirtfishing, 1871 quarter, here in Mich.

Just tried CRH Dimes. Bought $50. All skunk. I'm not really bummed because I wasn't expecting to find anything. It was worth the experience though.

Volume, my friend, is the key to successful dime roll hunting. I try to pick up at least $1k-$1.5k per trip to make it worthwhile, because I drive a gas hog. Expect 1 silver per $100-$200 in dimes searched.

Dumped my halves today and decided to try some CWR dimes. I picked up $75 in Dimes and $3 in Loose Halves.
Found a 1976 Proof in the loose halves. Would have liked to find another date since I already have a 76 proof.
Now to the most important part of this post...I found one 1959 D! My first silver dime find! Boy those silver dimes do stick out amongst the clad. Today is a good day.
