    Christmas score??? skunksville and big score

    So yesterday hit several banks looking for loose halves- nothing but clad everywhere- then the last bank i hit- which is onr I don't usually go to cause the last time I went sevrral months aho they werent very noce since I wasn't a member, but thought I'd gice it a chance- so asked fornhalves and the teller I was at said she didn't have any but the teller next to her chimed in and she she had a couple dollars worth, then she said she remembered they had a bunch in the back someone dropped off and they were all in old dirty rolls, I tried not to get too excited d and said I'd take em all- then my teller asked if I was a memeber and i said no so she said shed have to check with the mngr, whch ultimately was ok and they brought out 25 rolls of really old brown dirty rolls- oh my heart skipped a beat and I couldn't wait to get back to the car-opened the 1st roll wnd saw several 2001's and my heart sunk as i new these werent an old collection and to no avail they were a dump
    Then all my half boxes 5 where skunks
    I did end the nihht on a high note though- picking up my halves I saw an older style nickle roll sitting on the counter and asked to see it- the teller knows me fairly well ans said "you don't normally want nickles" I just laughed it off and then saw on the back of the roll (older brown style) handwritten "buffalos" I thought naw couldn't be but I bought em asked if the same person had dropped anything else off and the teller said no-so got home and after my halves checked the nickle roll and sure enough a solid roll of Buffalos- haven't checked dates yet but there are several with full dates-
    Pics will come later

    Well unfortunately there were actually only 3 full date decent shape nicks- 1920 & 2x36
    All others are either completly worn or very faint- will probably get the nic-a-date just to see what I've got

    A solid roll of buffalos is a nice find. Even the dateless ones sell for at least 3 x face on ebay. I've been buying a lot of V, buffalo and silver nickels on ebay lately but I hope to be searching some boxes again soon. Finding them at face is more fun.

    H$H!

    I sometimes use vinegar for my no dates buffalos....but it probably doesn't work as well as that no date acid but some people that sell restored date buffalos on ebay seem to be able to do it really well and can sometimes even restore the coins to full horn too.
