    Newb just bought his first 2 boxes!

    I know this may be a bit premature, but I just picked up a Brinks box of nickles and pennys to
    get me started. They are rotting in my trunk as I speak and cant wait to tear into them
    like an 8 year old and a box of wax packs!

    Ive been reading the forum for a few weeks gathering tips and info, and just want to say a
    big "THANKS" to everyone who has posted for us new guys. I had never heard of this hobby
    before, and lets just say the woman was actually supportive of my new hobby... as she put
    it.. "so... there is like no cost to this is there? Sounds Cool!"

    Wether I get skunked or not, I wont be discouraged!

    Thanks again!

    Welcome to the forum, don't be discouraged by skunks and solid 2012 rolls.
    You can also try ordering half boxes at your local bank if they will allow you to do so.
    Hope that your penny and nickel boxes turn out great!

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Obviously the prospect of landing on something of value
    is exciting, but to be honest I would prob hoard my finds so
    I could show them off, haha.

    Regardless of what i find, I'm picking up a box of halves from my
    local CU this Friday!

    Any tips/words of wisdom anyone can provide would be more than

    Keep an eye out for the '75 halves. They are worth a fortune.

    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.

    Well folks, My daughter and I busted through those pennies and nickels with
    complete disregard for dinner and her bed time, and came out rather victorious!

    The pennies produced a decent amount of wheaties, about 13 (3 from one roll).
    Nothing special amongst them, a couple from the 20's in decent shape. We sorted
    out all the copper, and the rest will go back to one of my banks at some point over the
    next couple of days.

    The nickels I found to be painstaking. Not sure if I will do these again. That being said,
    we managed to pull a war nickel, a 1943 P, but no Buff's. The clear rolls from Brinks made it easy to
    spot the lone silver coin. Everyone had already gone to bed when I found it, so nobody was around
    for me to share my excitement, haha.

    Sly, nice job on the first silver nickel. I find nickels to be very tedious. I have found a way to search a third of a roll in my palm at once, bc i am only looking for silver & buff's. I do them only if that is all i can get.

    I would def buy a box of dimes bc find silver is really fun, and you should find some and the box is only $250. Happy Hunting! - Jonathan

    Thanks Jonathan!

    I almost forgot, I am pretty sure I pulled a proof Nickel as well. Please correct me if I
    am wrong on this. Its a 1964 mint mark D. It looks different from the others I pulled,
    has more of a metallic sheen to it, and (what made me notice it) the edge was noticably
    raised compared to the other nickels i handled, almost sharp it was raised so high.

    thoughtss? I will post pictures tonight

    I could be wrong but i am pretty sure if your nickel is a proof it would be from Phillidelphia and not Denver.I could be wrong though.
