    Marking rolls of coins to alert potential holders the rolls are silver free?

    Is there any accepted practice for identifying rolls of coins you've rolled yourself as already being worked over for silvers? Some discreet marking CRH hunters would recognize at a glance?

    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.

    Even if the rolls were marked, any CRHer worth his salt will still search them.

    No CRHer here would believe a claim of "no silver in those rolls". Too many stories that have shown otherwise. But thanks for thinking about us!

    They would still be searched, even for errors.

    I mark my half dollar rolls with a big black Sharpie stripe. This mostly to ward off the remote chance of buying back my own searched rolls at the one bank that requires coins to be rolled. I have on occasion dumped at this bank in one town, and bought rolls at this bank in a different branch in a different town. I once had to turn down a “box from the Fed” (LOL) at a branch in a town 45 miles away which were actually my own rewrapped & marked rolls I dumped from my home town. I’ve gone so far as to turn down CWRs that were re-used MWR wrappers. So, I think it depends on the denomination. I agree with the previous responders that with nickels/dimes/quarters most CRHers will search the rolls no matter how you mark them. For me, half dollar rolls are a different story.

    I would still search the half dollar rolls, the person searching may not have known about 40%!

    I had a teller tell me they didn't have any silver halves when they handed me 3 40% halves

    We used to throw the 40’s back, they had no value over face.

    Surprisingly good sale price. I would pay that much - if they were all 1970...

    I just searched a box of halves and 75% of them had a marked line from one end to the other end of the coin. What a shame to ruin all those coins as someone might need them to complete their set. Needless to say the box was a skunk.

    Anyone seen this before? I got it at a bank, but filled with cwr halves, not sure if it was placed there by the coin service company or by the hunter....

    Was the message correct?

    I get the same square boxes, but my skunks, 19 in a row now, are not advertised.

    Why would you not sell all 500 at this price
    I have 500 I would let you have at 60$ per roll, which would be profitable for you!!!
