    I have no problem with Brinks clear dime rolls in my area, Average 1-2 per box
    If it were easy and we scored keepers everytime it would be called Coin Roll Picking not Coin Roll Hunting.

    I've done over $7,000 in Brinks clear wrapped dimes without finding the first silver.

    Finally, I picked up some boxes from a branch 'in the big city', and found 1 or 2 Roosies.

    I theorize that some of the Brinks dime machines have comparators, and others don't. In the skunk Brink boxes, I've not found any silver, Canadian, or British 5 pence. The String rolls are loaded with Canadian, foreign, and a silver here and there.

    I'm a newbie and have only done one box of dimes so far. 1 box MWR clear from brinks. Got 1 1964. For what ever that's worth. I'm gonna due more I'll let you know. All my MWR are clear except my halves which had paper rolls but I was told it was a brinks box

    The perk of these types of boxes, and also the reason why they will never produce like other types of rolls. I think most of the brinks boxes we get have been searched over. all they have to do is reseal the box and send it back out. in other types of BWRs, these are truly unsearched, but with brinks you never know. Maybe 1 out of 10 is unsearched, so you find one dime every $1000 instead of every $100. it's the only thing that makes sense to me without a reason for brinks receiving less silver from customers. Who knows, maybe they receive all the coinstar dumps

    I think it is more likely to be Coinstar dumps bombing the average than other CRHers. There just aren't that many of us out there, especially that do dimes. Probably about half of those who CRH don't move past halves.

    I mostly do CWR and Loomis but I have found silver dime in Brink's boxes. The yield is much much lower.

    Two quick follow ups: First, I don't believe any dimes that I search and return in full boxes get retaped and handed out to other CRHers. When I ask for dimes, I will often get a response like "I'm sorry, I don't have any new boxes, just those that you sold me. They are all open." Bank employees aren't going to retape them, they simply sell the rolls out of the box to merchants coming in. They certainly aren't sending them out to be verified by at the service center as that would accomplish nothing but driving up their handling costs. Second, I've only done a few thousand dollars worth of paper rolls so take this for what it's worth but I have not found any yeild difference between clear plastic (Brinks) versus the other carriers. The dimes seem to come in 1 or 2 per box no matter the source. On occasion, I get one that beats the average and at other times, I get a run of skunks (often full boxes of 2012s). Regional differences may exists elsewhere but in the PNW, they are all the same. However, there is another argument that could be made that I'll address. If you're buying less than a full, sealed box, then plastic rolls may not produce for you. There are MANY crafty tellers that would be able to spot the silver dime in the roll and keep it from themselves. Buy purchasing less than the full box, you may be getting pre-searched rolls in that way.

    But for me, the clear plastics are just easier to dump. Let me be a bit more specific as to how it's easier. I walk in and throw 2 boxes on the counter. Because the merchant tellers all know me by name and fully trust that I've included 50 rolls in each box, they just hand me 5 $100s and I walk out the door. It's that fast. Now it used to be that they would open the boxes then "tray" the rolls to ensure they were all there. If there's a new teller, they usually ask what to do and the other tellers say "oh, it's him. just give him the money. those boxes are good." I have one branch that usually gets about 20 boxes a week. They let me look through the vast majority of those before they go out the door with other customers. And at that branch, there's a teller that CRHs and she tells me about her recent finds. I share some info about my finds, especially if it's something unusual (steel pennies off a magnet at the 1 coin sorter in the area comes to mind as an example).

    In brief, in sealed boxes, I don't believe the rolls have been pre-searched because I keep finding silver. And paper produces no more than plastic in my area.

    Oh, CWRs do tend to produce more... but those are also the rolls where I get shorted most often. That's the gamble.

    I did a cwr box of nickels that had 6$ extra in it because there were a bunch of quarters inbetween the rolls and at the bottom of the box.

    You cannot however count on this being the norm.


    I am not sure what everyone else does but I do not count my CWR. They are search and re-rolled. I normally pick them up in more consumer oriented bank branches and then take them back to a more Retail Store customer location of the same bank. We just replace any silver dimes or foriegn coins we pullout. Perhaps I should bring them back to the same bank branch.

    As for the Brinks I might try an entire couple of sealed box. We have never gone that route. I have always worried Brinks are so easy to check someone somewhere is looking them over before I see them

I find it hard to believe that we have not found one the Chase dimes. I stopped getting the BWR from Chase an ask for CWR.

    I was just wondering how others may have done.
    Your chase must use brinks...my chase uses nf string.. Don't blame the bank brinks just sucks for dimes in general... I usually stick with about 150-175 in pennies a week I don't like dimes they are wayyy to small for my 14 year old eyes

    This is what I think is the case, too. Sometimes the local Brinks boxes are stuffed with foreign and silver, sometimes they're bone-dry. IIRC Brinks has a national contract with Coinstar, so this should hold true throughout the country.

    As for CWR dimes, my results with them is so much better than with BWR that I don't mind the occasional shortages.

    If coinstars will sort out silver coins in the reject slot. I have no experience with them. At a fee of 10 cents per dollar they are ultimate ripe off. But it, Brinks is handling these machines it would explain why Chase seem to have some issues with BWR
