Nickel searcher reveals his finds status
FYi, I've only been searching nickels since mid March 2012. To date I found 3 Liberty Vs, 74 Buffalos & 110 silver War. In fact, the last box that I just searched gave me 4 more Buffalos - '20, '36D & '36x2 (see pic). Happy hunting & stay cool everyone.

wow, you do much more volume then I thought you did, keep it up, weird.. I average more buffalo nickels compared to silver wartime nickels... do you have a complete set of war nics from circulation yet? I know some are harder to find then others.
p.s. I used to be a larger nickel searcher at 1-2 boxes per week until my source went to solid 2012 rolls.

I've never found a V nickel. I do about 5 nickel boxes a week. Ive searched about 4000$ worth. How many do you do a week?

With all the War niks I found I'm sure I have a complete set by now. I'm also working on putting a Buffalo set together too. The amount of boxes of various coins I do each week varies. Right now I cut back & taking kind of a break. The hobby is too time consuming, it involves too much driving around dumping at so many banks, etc. So right now I do 4 boxes of halves & 4 to 6 boxes of nickels a week. I'm still working on all my boxes of cents that I have stock piled. Cents are the most time consuming. I don't bother with dimes & quarters. Hoarding copper & silver is my new 401k plan. But its long term. If they don't pass the cent melt law & if silver doesn't go up within 3 to 5 years, I'll cash everything in. Only time will tell. Meanwhile, the search continues for vintage coins. Thank God I was blessed with patience. I should have become a doctor.
2009 Find Totals (in progress):
1775 King George copper
3 dollars (2 Presential Washington & 2 Sacagawean)
3 Kennedy clad halves
417 Quarters (3 silver dated '34, '48 & '63)
423 Dimes (includes a few Mercs & silver Roseys)
1 Buffalo (no date)

Nice score! Maybe post some pics of them (create a thread about it first).
