    Pretty much everything but Quarters. By that I mean cents, nickels, dimes, and halves. I only do quarter rolls when I get them at my register and havent found any silver but I keep the biccentennials. When my CRH funds increase after saving more and more every paycheck, Ill start doing quarters just so I can say I found 1 lol. I do half boxes that Mechanic savings (the only bank Ive found that orders them though I havent looked beyond TD and Five county credit union and key bank) orders me but I can only do them sections at a time. like 200$ here, dump at a TD the next day, go back and finish the rest etc.

    WOW, so many young people doing this. I too saved coins when I was younger. My first job at a grocery store, I would buy up all the halves at night or end of week. I had $1,000 saved up, never even knew about silver ones back then. Of course life, I mean beer made me take them to the bank and cash them in. I also collected sport cards in the 80's, now worthless for the most part. I got into CRH this year in hopes of saving some money, or silver. Take it from a 42 year old, save now while you can because before you know it, you'll have kids, bills, no money or time do it. AND for you young collectors, stay away from the booze and drugs because that stuff gives you no money to buy rolls. Good luck, hope you have fun.

    Welcome aboard. Yes, I wish I had started at an early age! I'll soon be 72 years old. I can remember being given silver dollars by my uncles when I was just a young boy of about 2 years old. Gee, I grew up while some of the most valuable coins were still in common circulation! Oh well, wishful thinking. Again, welcome aboard and hope you have great luck! Red

    Thanks to my redbook, Ive learned a lot. I know a lot of the key and error dates, what to look for, and whatnot. Im nowhere near done learning for sure but yknow, none of us are ever really done learning.

    No one is ever TOO YOUNG to get into this hobby. The earlier the better, so later on you would be kicking yourself for not doing it, coulda, woulda, shoulda.

    Cool! So there is someone in my area. I bet youre the one who dumped off 1000$ in halves on them ehehe. I reroll halves and dont dump them in the counter so if you see any with a circle triangle square pattern in permanent marker I went through them. I keep 70' and before, I check 74 D for the doubling, and I DO NOT keep 2002-2014 so if youre aiming for NIFC then my rolls may have some. Yeah Mechanic savings near Irving on Main street in lewiston is where I pick up my boxes usually. They also order my halves as no other place Ive found will do so.

    i dont use the mechanics bank.. i thnk theyve always told me i needed to be a member.. theres more then just me, you get to know mr. "was just here" hes everywhere i go, but earlier lol, the big td in auburn i thnk is someones dump, and now my mine too, i have a spot to dump loose into a machine, and i try to re roll as much as possible, i have a CU account and they do the shared banking..

    i will give you a hint... in that area there is a bank that a guy dumps halves at.. hes NOT a collector, he works for the fairs or something... i got some of his rolls, and they were pretty good. but FYI i am buying a house in lewiston and plan on hunting it more often, my main dump bank is in lewiston but im going to have find place to pick up boxes thier.. im interested in seeing your results, maybe we can meet up sometime and hunt together, in our neck of the woods their seems to be not shortage of banks, i havent even been in all the ones in L/A.. HH

    I just posted a new thread entitled "todays results". I use Mechanic savings as a pickup bank only and they order me halves. I dump at TD, and ask for loose half rolls when I get the chance. Besides the 2 full boxes that got dumped on them and like 80$ of my own theyve tried giving me twice, they dont have any other ones that I know of. The first time I ever did halves in my life, I picked up 60$ in CWR of halves from the Aubrun TD and scored 2 1964 Kens, 3 40%ers, and a 63' Ben. I thought it would be like that every time I picked up halves, and boy was I wrong ahaha. What may help you to know, is using the smaller TD on the other side of the bridge near zimmies would be good for me, since the guy at the that TD searches the halves, hence why I try and get rid of them there and wont "clog up" the bigger TD with Searched half rolls. Either that or make a marking of some sort on your rerolled halves so I know not to buy them after I get my money after dumping.
