    Coin Roll Hunting
    Hey guys, just thought I would give you the results of my coin roll hunting for the past two weeks. Last weekend the bank didn't have our penny boxes, so I thought I would wait to update this thread until this week.

    What is the average for copper in a box for you?
    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.

    Great finds my fellow Canadian CRHer. Those dime boxes are harsh indeed, but you averaging more wheats than I do. Keep up the hunt. Also what is the KGVI/Wheat pennies breakdown by the box?
    I'm guessing the one that had 87,46% copper had more Wheats/KG VIs.

    Comment for:
    Did you find any silvers there? No, right?
    This is because I have got many Garda wrapped dime boxes and found NO coin prior to 2000 in any of those rolls. Thus I conclude, that Garda culls off nickel and silver. A good advice for future is to pick up only CWR, because only there one can find silver.

    How do you dump the coins that you don't want?

    are there canadian coin counters to accept canadian change?
    i'd imagine it is probrably more difficult to remove silver from circulation considering all silver is non-magnetic.

    Thank you BB! Great to hear that you enjoy them.

    We usually get around 40% in the around box. But recently we have had some high-80% boxes, so I would say that since the beginning of May we have been getting around 45% copper in an average box.

    Thank you Canadian hunter! You are so right, the dime boxes have been harsh so far. We are 0-3 with our three boxes so far, but it was expected to a small degree. You are correct, the 87% box had 17 Wheats and 11 KGVIs, which is probably our best box for Kings and Wheats so far. Look forward to see your finds as well!

    Correct, no silver dimes yet unfortunately. I am going to have to agree with you. Our first box had no coin prior to 2000. CWRs is definitely the way to go.

    We just bring them back to the bank. Between myself, my brother and my parents, we divide the coins up and bring them to a different branch every week. So each branch only sees us about once every 3-5 weeks. Sometimes we dump the dimes ($250) and the pennies/nickels (~$125) at different branches in order to not overwhelm the bank and to try not to stick out too much.

    Do you mean coin counters at the bank in order to dump? Up here in Canada we have the Alloy Recovery Program, which does too good of a job of pulling out the silver dimes. I apologize with I misunderstood your question BB.

    ^ A very detailed response. Keep in mind that the only way to find silver is CWR. Garda culls off nickel and silver. I enjoy your updates. Keep posting and take a look at my penny hunting log!

    It has been way too long since I updated this log, but I thought I would post my latest results here.

    $100 Nickel Box #35
    -157 99.9% nickel nickels (7.85%)
    -5 pre-1963 Canadian nickels, including a 1937 King George VI
    -3 King George V nickels, a 1927, and two 1929s
    -3 1945 chrome-plated steel nickels

    Overall, this was a good box with a lot of variety for the older coins. My percentage seems to have dropped pretty sharply over the past few months, so it is nice to get around 8% again for the 99.9% nickels. I'll put a picture and video below if anyone would like to view the results that way. I hope all of your hunting is going well and everyone is having a great holidays!
