    New to CRH..and questions

    After reading this forum for a week or so I thought I'd give it a try.

    So, last Saturday I went out to 5 bank branches in my area and only got $6.50 in halves...nothing "good".

    Today (Saturday), I went to the other bank branches in town and got 3 rolls and $6 individuals.
    Out of that I got a 1950 Franklin, two 1964's and a 1968.

    Now...

    + When I get to look at these closer, are there other key dates I can look for?
    + How do I know if I get a proof?
    + Almost Uncirculated? I got 3 or 4 - 94's that shine more than others (alot more) as a
    matter of fact, one has a fingerprint on it, otherwise I would think it just came from the mint.

    Got some covers and plan on "dumping these at my credit union out of town.

    I've got a bunch somewhere around where I bought a guys collection about 10 years ago...I guess I need to find those. LOL.

    Thanks!

    If it has an "S" mintmark it is a proof.

    keep an eye out for any 87s and anything after 2001, they are pretty rare.

    True, 1999P has the lowest non-proof mintage aside from the not-for-circulation 2002-2007 dates, but I see them by the handful for some reason. I don't save them myself.

    Silver: 1949-D quarter (8/9/19)

    Thanks CC,

    That is VERY informative.

    Now I gotta open my rolls again and look for the 1987's.
