    CRH

    Greetings from a new hunter

    Hey everyone,
    I've been a lurker for a few months, and am just getting into CRH. In general I'm doing a small amount, usually just getting rolls from tellers, but since I had a week off between finals and summer classes, I thought I'd get into a bunch of boxes. I've filled out my albums for the most part, so I'm just looking for silver, foreign and odd-ball stuff. For pennies I'm trying to get a solid collection of wheats and copper.

    Here's my results from this week:
    3 Boxes of Dimes: 1944 Merc(!), 1949, 1950, 1963, 1964x3, 1961 Canadian, and what I think is a dove charm for a bracelet
    2 Boxes of Halfs: Nothing
    1 Box of Quarters: 1 Canadian
    1 Box of Pennies: 3 Wheats, 5 Canadian, 8 Copper Rolls, 1 dime

    I'm pretty stoked that I pulled the Merc. I got a CWR dime box that came up empty, but my two MWR dime boxes were pretty solid. The pennies box was a little disappointing. I got them from a new bank, and the pennies were really grimy, and pretty light as far as wheats goes. After reading the forum for a while I'm not surprised about not coming up with anything in the Quarters or Halfs; I'll probably rotate between them as time and funds permit.
    2012 CRH to Date:
    2 Boxes of Halfs: Zilch.
    2 Boxes of Quarters: 1 Canadian (non-silver)
    6 Boxes of Dimes. 9 Roos, 2 Mercs, 1 Silver Canadian, 1 Portuguese 10 Centavos
    5 Boxes of Pennies: 71 Wheats, 28 Canadian, 1 Bahama, 1 Planchet, 45 Rolls of Copper
    Random Rolls (unknown qty): 1 Roos, 1 SLQ, 1 Buf

    Welcome.
    The merc sure must have been a lot of fun. They are difficult to find, I even know of people that have a special dance they perform when they found a merc

    Welcome, and check the dove charm for silver.
    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.

    I recently found 4 silver dimes in a box consisting of 3 Mercs dated '36, '39 & '45 plus a Rosey dated '60. This was the 1st time I ever found 4 silver dimes in a box. Its a thrill to find those nice old winged dimes. But I'm doing better at finding Buffalo & War nickels. My latest Buff was a 1930S in VF.
    2009 Find Totals (in progress):

    1775 King George copper
    3 dollars (2 Presential Washington & 2 Sacagawean)

    I have waaay better luck with dimes than I do halves. And they are definitely easier to dump.

    Thanks everyone!
    Update: I got a dump bank with a coin machine yesterday, so no more rolling for me! Also, I finished my first penny box of just copper. On the downside, my latest dime box I got yesterday was all 2012s. Bummer. I'm gonna try and swap it today.

    You can go to the bank and swap the new box to a circulated box, but sometimes tellers do not understand what you mean by that. Once I tried doing that and it turned out taking 3 times longer than to just dump or just buy a box of dimes.
    Good luck in searching dimes.
