Epic Nickel Find (lots of pics)
Went to a bank I haven't picked up from in about too months and I got $60 dollars in CWR of Nickels. By far my best nickel score yet.
141 pre 60 nickels
5 war nickels (not counted in the number above)
1 buff nick (36 no mint)
and now for the really good stuff
4 V nicks from the 1800's
13 V nicks from the 1900's
5 V nicks that are way to dirty/worn to tell the date.
and the even better stuff (not included in the numbers above)
1888 v nickel (really damaged and worn)
1912 (s or d hard to tell) mint V nickel *I know I listed this as a 12 S originally, but I am not sure now, gonna have it checked out
189-? clipped planchet
1883 no cents V nickel (I know the 83 with cents is more, but this is my new oldest coin, I forgot to add this picture in the photo with the rest of the coins)
I searched these in my car, when I saw how good the batch was I took the 4ish dollar hit from coinstar and cashed in the newer nickels for cash and went back a second time to see if I could nab some more. Second batch of $40ish dollars was uneventful but I don't even care. 26 v nickels total, 1 buff, 5 war nickels (one isn't included in the picture because I had already put it in my book), and 141 other pre 60 nickels....hell of a 60 bucks if you ask me.
This got me to 13oz of silver for 2012 so far. The finds had 2 coins I needed for my book (1950 no mind, 1942p), and 4 coins for my uncles book (42 no mint, 49, 51, and 51d).

R.I.P. Rich Hartford, You'll be missed.
epic!! the 1912 is l;ikely a D, if it were S that is one of the key dates of the series with a low mnitage. Nice acore, thanks for sharing with us, great pictures.

Nice finds! And from CWR's no less. I guess people think those V nickels are foreign or something.

People used to gold plate the 1883 "no cents" nickel. since it didn't completely specify it's denomination, they could get away with it

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'd say that's epic! Nickels are my favorite because they're kinda the sleeper denomination. You can find some good stuff in nickels, which you have demonstrated!
