    Coin Roll Hunting

    Introducing myself and whats ahead.

    Hello fellow CRH'ers. Ive been a lurker (meaning I read the posts and threads of roll hunting but dont have an account) for about a month now and finally decided to make an account. Im hoping my young age wont be frowned upon as I know roll hunting isnt something a 20 year old commonly does. Anyway when I was younger I liked collecting wheat cents, though I only knew about them for the age factor and not about what a key date or error or any of the more advanced things were. Ive semi recently (just a few months now) gotten back into coin collecting though on an obviously better scale than when I was younger. My register job at walmart reminded me of the days as a kid collecting wheats and so, a roll hunter was "born" I guess you could say. Im called odd and that I have "an obsession with coins" by some but Its a really addictive and passionate hobby of mine now. Im hardly in this for money (though finding a coin worth several hundred or thousand dollars would be cool right?) and more into it for the cool factor and the oh so sweet rush of seeing that white edge when doing dimes or halves. And so again I say, Hello everyone, and happy hunting to all other roll hunters out there. Ive yet to meet anyone that is a collector in person.

    I don't always pull silver from boxes, but when I do, I prefer 90%ers.

    Welcome to TNET & the hobby/obsession. There's nothing wrong with a 20 year old doing this. Having a hobby & getting enjoyment from it is a great thing to have going for you these hectic days. People have so little time for relaxation. I had started coin collecting in my early teens & than stopped when I went into the Army. I restarted it doing coin roll hunting (crh) at 61. At the top of the page are stickies which have a lot of information in them. You should read them. Also don't be afraid to ask questions. Some people on the site will give you a hard time but most of us will try & answer them to the best of our knowledge & there is a lot of knowledgeable people on the site.

    Welcome to Treasurenet! As stated above there is nothing wrong with starting at 20. I started in 2013 when I was 14 and this June I will be 16. I also started out saving wheat cents or anything that looked different or old. I will be looking forward to your posts. Happy hunting!

    Welcome I started out when I was around 12 saving old and odd looking coins and foreign coins. I am now in my 20's and love it. Fun hobby and to me it's better than spending money on going out and buying a few rounds of drinks.

    I am getting close to 50 and I just started CRH and collecting myself.
    I am constantly thinking about what I could have accumulated by now if I would have started at your age.
    Welcome and good luck!
