    Thar she blows!!!

    On the white whale thread, I mentioned hoping for a nickel dump. Got one!! 5 bags of nickels, 4 of them yielded 10 keeper dates and 1 1943p.

    The other bag:

    27 keeper dates. 1 proof. 155 war nickels (4 1942, 55 1943, 8 1944, 48 1945) annnnnnd 79 buffaloes!!!!!!
    Most seemed to be no dates, a few 37 and 35s, haven't checked them all just yet. Great night, and hoping to catch the rest tomorrow. Maybe a liberty. Or hopefully and Indian burial ground in the cents ;-)

    Happy hunting everyone!

    Great work - that’s a huge score. Do me a favor and DON’T tell me how many of the ‘43’s are D marked.

    I’ve had 1 good nickel score, 172 buffalo’s nearly all dated and many better dates (23-S, 31-S). Have never found more than 5 war nickels at a time.

    Geez Louise!

    Almost two rolls worth of buffies. I'd be over the moon.

    Will you invest in some Nic-A-Date now? Pretty puhleeze?? I must know what the dates are.
    Last appearance in pocket change:

    Wheat penny: 1956-D (7/24/19)
    Silver: 1949-D quarter (8/9/19)

    And the Final Breakdown is:

    1975S Proof
    1942 War Nickels: 4P
    1943 War Nickels: 53P, 2S
    1944 War Nickels: 7P, 1D
    1945 War Nickels: 25S, 23P

    P Buffaloes:
    1920-8
    1923-5
    1925-5
    1926-4
    1927-4
    1928-5
    1929-8
    1935-12 (1D)
    1936-5 (1D)
    1937-17 (2D)
    1 no date

    I think these were nic-a-dated, as a lot of the dates had a darker color to them. Guessing it was a cull of someone's collection, gladly take it! Sadly, no more nickels available today, but 8 bags of cents for this week, hopefully whoever this was didn't just collect nickels! Happy Hunting Everyone!!!

    I can’t remember the last time I saw a significant quantity of war nicks or buffs found on this site. Congrats!
