    The Indy 500 is not a mark, but a coin made to sell for more than $.50 to a person who is interested. The green paint may be TimZim's mark.
    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.

    Thanks for the reply. I dug through them all before I dump them and found the "Indy 500". One has been dumped already but I do have this one. I've found 2 marked "Indy 500" now.

    It is a bicentennial (1776-1996), no mint mark, not silver. Doesn't look like an error coin or anything special? Are you pulling my leg? Anything else I should look for on it? Again thanks for the reply.

    What I am saying is a fan of Indy 500 put a sticker of it and is trying to either:

    a) rip off someone by telling them it is a rare coin
    b) sell it to another fan of Indy 500 who may or may not be a coin collector

    Ahhh. Thanks for the info. The two I have seen are acutally written "Indy 500" with a black sharpie on the face of the half dollar coins. I am thinking it is someone marking them from Indiana(?).

    On a seperate note, I should have chosen the username "Filthy Fingers" they are sooo dirty after searching through a box of coins!

    Coin Roll Hunting
    Well, this was a slow week for CRH. I have a pattern down for my orders and memorial day screwed up my rotation of ordering at each bank (I do it in person). So I didn't order any boxes this week. I did get to dump a bit though

    Today I went to a bank branch where I do my main banking and have not yet asked about halves. I did get 2 boxes on pennies and 1 box of dimes here in the past at which time the teller had said it was OK to do it this time but that they aren't really supposed to order boxes for customers because it costs them money (blah). So today I asked about halves and purchased $300.00 CWR worth (they had $700.00). As she put them into my bag I saw some of the rolls had X's written on them. That made me sad thinking this is the second bank where I am picking up someone elses dumps.

    Got home and started going through them. 5 rolls had the X's. What do you know I found a 1969 40% in one of the X marked rolls!! Haha, all the rest were skunk! Still made me so happy. Only silver half I have found so far and it was from a roll which someone dumped! So it was a good week for me afterall!

    Halves:

    $300.00 CWR = 1969 40%

    I take all halves a bank has at any time. The tellers love me for it, and it's only a bit more work for me to dump them. Plus it helps establish your reputation as a guy that will take anything weird that they get... I've been offered ikes, old currency, silver certs, etc. all just because tellers know I like "weird" stuff and will clean them out.

    Well this was a pretty good week for me. Did Nickels this week. Found my first Buffalo Nickels!

    Nickels:

    Brinks Box 1: 1943 S, 1943 P , 1930 Buffalo, Date worn off Buffalo, Gold Plated 2004, 13 Pre-1960 Nickels

    Brinks Box 2: 1945 S, 1943 S, 1969 S, 29 Pre-1960 Nickels

    String & Sons: SKUNK 1942 - NonSilver , 18 Canadian Nickels, 28 Pre-1960 Nickels

    One of my pickup banks surprised me with a String & Sons box instead of a Brinks! I was so excited then wound up with box worse than the others. Haha, oh well still found some silver! The hunt continues!

    String & Sons is just a wrapping company. These rolls could be carried by any company.

    Sagittarius98 - Thanks for the info! After I saw the video of the Coinstar dumps going to Brinks I was happy to see the String and Sons box thinking it was a company that didn't get Coinstar dumps meaning hopefully more silver. Instead it had a bunch of Canadian, haha.

    Skunks definatley are no fun especially with the boxes with the paper wrappers that you can't see through I'm surprized you haven't come across any dimes yet (unless I missed it in which case I'm sorry). I've been averaging like two per box. Congrats on your other silver, before you know it you'll have a nice little stash

    You have to love Coinstar.
