    Coin Roll Hunting

    Found three this weekend!

    I had about $400 worth of boxes that I opened this weekend that were just sitting on the basement floor, probably another $300 filling up a Loweís bucket and 10 gallon waste basket that I use to stash the opened cents in. Anyway, between yesterday and today I ran them all through the reydale, wound up finding these three IH cents, as well as a bunch of other stuff I havenít gone through yet. 1887 1889 1893 are the years, the 1887 is in pretty awful shape, but I certainly wasnít expecting to find all of these in one shot, so I canít complain! Found one yesterday and two this afternoon.

    I have found 4 IH cents since I started hunting again back in November 2018. Iím an accountant, so the last thing I want to do is keep spreadsheets for my hobby, but I would estimate Iíve searched $1500-$2000 since I started back up. I was very heavy into cents back in 2013-2015, I easily searched over $10k during that couple of year stretch. I moved away for a while, then got back to my home town and took a while to get settled back into a normal routine, and now Iím a junkie again, anyway, enjoy the pics.


    Ps Iím sure this goes without saying, but if youíre using a reydale to run cents, PLEASE stand over your reject box with an LED flash light, Iíve saved several hundred wheats, and these three plus several other IH from being dumped back into circulation by doing so.

    Enjoy the hunt all

    I was going to buy a Ryedale back around 2008, when copper prices were very very high, then got into CRH silver, but still hoard by hand any coppers I find from boxes or bags. Searching a box/bag of cents is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you will find.

    True story. Since Iíve started back up Iíve been doing primarily pennies, and then halves, Iíve done a couple
    Of boxes of dimes and found a Merc and a Rosie. The half boxes have been a little weak, I do them with my kids, who get a kick out of helping open them up and when we actually find something, we do 2 boxes a week, found 3 40% Friday, 1 40% last night, and 4 40% a couple of weeks before. I found almost a full roll of franklins back in November, which is when the addiction started back up. Overall I really just enjoy doing cents the most, like you said you never know what youíre going to find

    Found three this weekend!

    Haha. Thank you. Iím with you rosco, LOVE hunting cents. I had told myself the first go around that I was going to quit after I found a flying eagle in a bank box, but I donít know that I would quit if I did.

    I just dragged my huge box of coins out of the closet and pulled out all of my CRH finds from my first go around, basically before my son was born, Iíll have to take some pics and post them. Iíve actually found more silver halves in the last three months than I did over the course of a year and a half from back a few years ago.

    Uncleslick18: I highly doubt if you will EVER find a flying eagle cent in the wild bank box. Maybe either MD, or someone's personal collection. So, it looks like you will NOT BE QUITING for a long long time. I don't ever recall anyone here on TN that found a flying eagle in the wild.
