    A Walker, a Ben, a worn buffalo, some wheat, and a proof

    Went to two banks yesterday.

    Got $6 in pennies ($3 from each bank)
    $4 in nickels
    $90 in dimes and
    one of the banks had $3.50 in halves

    Haves were a big hit: 1942 Walker, 1961D Ben, and 2008S impaired proof

    In one of the nickel rolls got this dateless buffalo and a nice 1961BU

    Sorry for the upside down picture.

    Of the $6 in pennies, got 19 wheats. All dated 1935+

    Dimes were a skunk

    Today, went to 2 banks on way home: Got $70 in dimes, $6 in nickels, and $3 in pennies and total skunk. Bank 1 rolls were MWR and bank 2 were CWR. I have a hunch that the CWR were rolled by a collector.

    The nickels and dimes were a skunk. The $6 in pennies yielded 6 common date wheats.

    Went to a number of banks over the last 2 days

    Searched:
    $32 in cents
    $34 nickels
    $490 dimes
    $70 quarters
    $81.50 halves

    Of the cents, got 18 wheats (no pic). One was 1927, rest were in late 1930s+

    Got these 5 dimes and 2 war nickels (both 1943P and both were in the same roll)

    Of the $81.50 in halves got these 4 40%s. $60 in halves were in one bank (3 40%s) and $21.50 from another (1 40%)

    In one of the dime rolls got this - someone fused a mercury dime and a wheat cent together. Looks like someone did a very good job of this. Even the edge is 1/2 silver from the dime and 1/2 copper from the cent:
