OCD Coin Hunter
Does this count as a CRH find?
Like many of you I used to be a casual coin collector, and I have a couple of tins full of random coins to prove it. Anyway, I was showing these coins to my daughter yesterday and came across 3 rolls of halves, which I thought were all bicentennials. I noticed one of the rolls wasn't marked so I open it up to check and find a 1968 40%er! I just thought it was kind of funny that after several dozen boxes and hundreds of CWRs searched in the last year that a roll I've been sitting on for years had a keeper.

I count CRH as searching change too, those are the same coins that would/could be in your roll next time.
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

You acquired a roll of coins, hunted it, and produced a result.

It was coin you found hunting a roll. I vote Yes! Nice surprise.
