    I have gotten that before and found silver in them. It is put on by the courier/sorting company. They try to get you to stop forcing them to work by doing their job to deliver them

    I sell solid rolls of all a single year from '66 to '69. no '70's found, only have 6 '65's after selling 1 roll of those for $72. the roll of '64's needs a home but they aint's gonna gets it furr no stinkin' "melt" or "scrap" price. miss the days when I could sell a Forty % for $5 --- that would fetch $100 per roll--- minus the 9% fee

    Geez, you are all too honest. I would mark the rolls. "silver, '64 and earlier, etc." If it slows down or discourages another hunter, then mission accomplished.

    Looks like you live near Detroit. TCF Bank has coin counting machines. This is the only bank I have joined because of Coin Roll Hunting. Also some credit unions have coin counting machines.

    Keep on Searching

    The message was correct, but like I mentioned the box contained customer wrapped rolls, not mint wrapped. There was about $380 if I remember correctly. In my area I've never seen square boxes like this, at it for about 6 years now.

    First if they are CWR then unless they opened each one and searched it how do they know there are no silver? And that is time consuming for a business to do that.

    I get these boxes every so often, around here they come from Guarda and Brinks, Loomis has the rectangular boxes with yellow printing

    Thanks for the info, I live a block away from a TCF bank.

    Unfortunately, I'm not interested in opening a new bank account for a one time event so I'm stuck going the hand rolled route. On the good side, so far I've discovered a silver nickel, dime and quarter during the sort phase.

    Not Coin Roll Hunting

    I'm busy working to liquidate my 5 gallon water bottle coin jar, and will probably have $1500 in quarters alone when all is said and done. My bank(s) in the area no longer have coin sorting/counting machines and will no longer accept bags of coins from a non-business account, so I'm forced to hand roll my stash. At least they gave me some free coin wrappers.

    The forthcoming nickel/dime/quarter rolls may contain some rare modern coins, but no silver, that's for sure.

    TIA for any input.
    Why are you letting the next hunter take your rare modern coins?

    I’m not too fond of NIFC halves, scuffed IH’s, dateless buffalos, 1938 and newer Jefferson nickels, etc, and lately even wheaties. So, I dump them by the hundreds hoping to spur new collectors. That saying - one man’s trash...

    I opened 6 accounts at 6 different banks, each only required $10 to have no fee checking

    Ben, how easy is it to juggle six different checking accounts and keep them active?

    Not hard at all! you only have to deposit $1 once a year to keep them active, you can then withdraw it if you want. One bank did something interesting, I opened two accounts and put $10 in each then I put an extra $1 in and set up an automatic transfer from one to the other and then back the next day so once a month it puts a dollar in each account and keeps them active without me doing anything. I have all the accounts written down so I know which is which. I also have a card with the numbers in my wallet, sonce there is only $10 in each and no overdraft protection I doni't care if someone drains it, the banks require the account number when using the coin counter

    CUDS abound on State Qtrs., '92 to '98 Eagles have vast array of obv/rev die cracks, lots of greasers on eagles & States, O/C's are rare but have value. never found a Wi. leaf ----yet
