    Stats gon' be heavy today my friends!


    The Cortez came thru in spectacular fashion today! Firstly, we have this holed 1936 buffalo, my first this year and 8th '36 overall. It's seen some action, most likely as someone's jewelry, but it's a welcome addition to the collection.

    Next to that is the star find of the year IMO...my fourth EVER 1939-D. Could barely contain my disbelief and glee when I turned that baby over in the casino (was lucky enough to nab a good machine with direct overhead light, great for my middle-aged eyesight ).

    Now come the promised stats. That 39-D not only takes its place in the final 15 found in my 2020 survey (along with one other date found today) but it also earns a space in my 2009 survey that has yet to be completed (see page 6 of this thread). Additionally, this ticks up my uncompleted rolls total as the 39-D leapfrogs into 5th place over the 38-D.

    Specifics below:

    2009 Survey

    1. 1938-D/1950-D

    2134 of 2440 [87.5%]
    1808 of 2000 [90.4%]

    HALVES

    As if that wasn't enough (and by God don't you think it oughta be?) there was still the $100 in halves. Bicents were noticably fewer with only 19, NIFC's were the usual lot of 2018-D (x4) but the real kickers were a 1972-S proof and...wait for it...MY FIRST SILVER! Yup, a 1969-D made a believer out of me that silver is still possible in the Cortez half dollar slots. Let's hope it's a sign of more to come.

    Yet More Fun Stats: My last 1939-D was on 5/4/04, the longest no-show streak of the uncompleted group. Only the 38-D and 50-D have gone unfound for 10+ years, along with the 43-D in the silvers.

    This Week in Casino Searching History: In 2003, on this very day in fact, I found a 1916 buffalo.

    Immy's Casino Royale

    Immy: did you catch my post back in mid Dec.2020 where I pulled a 50-D Jeff on the 2nd roll checked out of 20 rolls. I rarely do nickels, but now you got me thinking twice about getting into them. Congrats on your stats, nice work. That was only my 2nd 50-d found in the wild since I started collecting in the early '60's.Click image for larger version.

    Too bad however about the two scratches on the obv.
    Are you an accountant by chance, you sure love to keep detailed stats. How good are you at the horse race tracks, reading all the racing forms etc, picking out the winners for sure.

    Amazing how between us we've managed to find only four in over 95 years combined CRHing.

    Not an accountant, but an equally tedious govt job.

    Never been into betting on ponies. The only time I'd be in that part of the casino was to find a quiet corner to search coins. The Las Vegas Hilton (now the Westgate) used to have individual booths with bright desk lamps, ideal for searching. I liked the Hilton because it was the closest to my home, but I stopped after security started giving me the skunkeye too many times. Not long afterwards they went coinless, so that was that.

    Time for a little variety!


    Since nickels were a bust today I decided to see what the Cortez would give up in the quarter department. And let me tell you this...going thru $100 in quarters was EXHAUSTING! And because I wanted to see how much of each series I could complete - 1965 thru 1998, then States, then Parks - it had to be done in three parts. I'll spare you all the Found vs Missing (the details started to become tedious, and I'm a stat guy!) and give you the highlights. Yep, these are just SOME of the stats.

    1965-1998 (105 total found)
    Found all Ps & Ds except 16, and only one Bicentennial. They're not nearly as common as the halves.

    1999-2009 US States (109 found)
    States that were complete no-shows: PA, TN, IL, ME, IA, WI, KS, MI, ID, AZ, USVI, NMI. The Guam proof (non-silver) was a standout.

    2010-2020 National Parks (186 found)
    Found a D mint for all 2013-2020, except Marsh Billings. 2010-2012 had surprisingly few at all, just five. No Ws or 2021's, and oddly enough only one P mint from the last five years, Pictured Rocks. I guess the newer Philly coins just haven't made it out this far west in big enough numbers yet.

    Gone fishing, El Cortez style!


    Wartime Nickels [503]
    1942-P (11/4/19) [31]
    1942-S (12/10/19) [22]
    1943-P (11/11/20) [102]
    1943-D (9/15/09) [9]
    1943-S (3/1/21) [102]
    1944-P (12/17/19) [53]
    1944-D (9/24/19) [21]
    1944-S (10/30/20) [22]
    1945-P (2/23/21) [57]
    1945-D (8/12/11) [21]
    1945-S (3/23/21) [63]
    After around $200 of in-casino searching yesterday, nickels were looking pretty grim. One thing that looked promising was some shiny, new ones sprinkled amongst them, so I brought home $20, at least hoping to perhaps find my first 2021. How pleased was I when this dull but beauteous 1945-S tumbled out of the casino cup. Another surprise was this 2009 Bermuda five cents that came right out of a slot machine.

    QUARTERS


    Last Sunday's foray into quarters was tiring but fun so I decided to try again, upping my take-home total to $150. So how cool was it to see another S-mint make an appearance, this time a circulation strike 2013 Great Basin from my home state. First of this type I've found. Still no W's or silver, but there's so much variety with quarters that I may do them more often since halves tend to have fewer finds.

    Now that I'm $250 into searching, I'll start listing my missing years:

    1965-1998 (6)
    69-D, 70, 73-D, 76, 77, 78-D

    1999-2009 US States (30)
    99-D (NJ), 99-P (CT), 01-P, (RI), 02PD (TN), 02-P (OH), 03-P (IL, AL, ME, MO, AR), 04-D (MI), 04-P, (FL, IA), 05-P (CA, KS), 06-P (ND, SD), 07-P (MT, ID), 08-P (OK, NM, AZ, HI), 09-P (PR, GU, USVI), 09-D (DC, GU, NMI)

    2010-2020 National Parks (45) [Not counting S's or W's]
    10-P (Yellowstone, Yosemite, Mt Hood), 10-D (Yosemite), 11PD (Glacier, Olympic, Vicksburg), 11-P (Gettysburg), 12PD (El Yunque, Acadia), 12-P (Chaco, Hawaii, Denali), 13-P (White Mountains, Perry, Great Basin, McHenry), 14-P (Smokey Mtns, Shenendoah, Sand Dunes, Everglades), 15-P (Homestead), 16-P (Shawnee, Harper's, Moultrie), 17-P (Effigy, Douglass, Ozark, Ellis, GR Clark), 18-P (Apostle, Block Is, Cumberland Is), 19-P (Amer Mem Park, Lowell, San Antonio, River/No Return), 20-P (Weir Farm, Salt River Bay, Marsh, Tallgrass)

    2021 and Beyond
    21-P (Tuskegee)


    Fun Stats: When I saw the mintage of that 2009 Bermuda five cents was only 1.5 mil, I thought I wouldn't find anything lower than that for awhile. Then, the 2013-S crashed the party with 1,316,500!

    This Week in Casino Searching History: In 2003, I also found a 1945-S war nickel.

    There be W's!


    Nada on nickels today so I was hopeful for some quarter action with the $100 I brought home from El Cortez. No silver (yet!) but hot damn we finally got some W's, and they were two I didn't have - 2019 American Memorial Park & 2020 Weir Farm - yep, it's privy mark city, my first. My only other W was a pocket change find (2019 San Antonio Missions) so now I've got three of the ten. Wonder if I can put together a whole roll?

    Fifteen dates/MMs were ticked off the quarter list too, leaving 69 more to go.

    1965-1998 (2)
    73-D, 76

    1999-2009 US States (23)
    01-P, (RI), 02PD (TN), 02-P (OH), 03-P (IL, AL, ME, MO, AR), 04-P, (FL, IA), 05-P (CA, KS), 07-P (MT, ID), 08-P (OK, AZ, HI), 09-P (PR, USVI), 09-D (DC, GU, NMI)

    2010-2020 National Parks (43) [Not counting S's or W's]
    10-P (Yellowstone, Mt Hood), 10-D (Yosemite), 11PD (Glacier, Olympic, Vicksburg), 11-P (Gettysburg), 12PD (El Yunque, Acadia), 12-P (Chaco, Hawaii), 13-P (White Mountains, Perry, Great Basin, McHenry), 14-P (Smokey Mtns, Shenendoah, Sand Dunes, Everglades), 15-P (Homestead), 16-P (Shawnee, Harper's, Moultrie), 17-P (Douglass, Ozark, Ellis, GR Clark), 18-P (Apostle, Block Is, Cumberland Is), 19-P (Amer Mem Park, Lowell, San Antonio, River/No Return), 20-P (Weir Farm, Salt River Bay, Marsh, Tallgrass)

    2021 and Beyond
    21-P (Tuskegee)

    SILVER/NIFCS/S's/W's FOUND ($350 searched)
    2009-S Guam
    2013-S Great Basin (circ strike)
    2019-W (Amer Mem Park)
    2020-W (Weir Farm)


    Fun Stats: $350 searched and not a single 2002 Tennessee quarter despite a combined mintage of 648 mil, yet four coins of 2 mil or less have appeared.

    This Week in Casino Searching History: In 2003, I completed a roll of 1949-D nickels.

    Drawing a blank at the Cortez

    I used to play roulette now and then back in the 80s at my favorite CRH casino. There was an older gent who also played and had a descriptive word for every type of roulette win: hitting a number direct got you a "stack" (of chips), catching a corner or edge was a "piece" and winning nothing at all was a "blank". In his honor, today's quarter results from $100 were a blank. I'll have to settle for the thirteen dates removed from the want list.

    1965-1998
    COMPLETE!

    1999-2009 US States (16)
    02PD (TN), 02-P (OH), 03-P (IL, AL, AR), 04-P, (FL, IA), 05-P (CA, KS), 08-P (AZ, HI), 09-P (PR, USVI), 09-D (DC, NMI)

    2010-2020 National Parks (38) [Not counting S's or W's]
    10-P (Yellowstone, Mt Hood), 10-D (Yosemite), 11PD (Glacier, Olympic), 11-P (Gettysburg, Vicksburg), 12PD (El Yunque), 12-P (Chaco, Acadia, Hawaii), 13-P (White Mountains, Perry, Great Basin, McHenry), 14-P (Shenendoah, Sand Dunes), 15-P (Homestead), 16-P (Shawnee, Moultrie), 17-P (Douglass, Ozark, Ellis, GR Clark), 18-P (Apostle, Block Is, Cumberland Is), 19-P (Amer Mem Park, Lowell, San Antonio, River/No Return), 20-P (Weir Farm, Salt River Bay, Marsh, Tallgrass)

    2021 and Beyond
    21-P (Tuskegee)

    SILVER/NIFCS/S's/W's FOUND ($450 searched)
    2009-S Guam
    2013-S Great Basin (circ strike)
    2019-W (Amer Mem Park)
    2020-W (Weir Farm)


    Fun Stats: Apparently all it takes to find the entire 1965-1998 series is around $500.

    More Fun Stats: The most common Parks quarters from 2010-16 in my part of the country - by far - are Arches and Mount Rushmore. I still have yet to see any Glacier, Olympic or El Yunque.

    This Week in Casino Searching History: In 1996, 25 years ago today, I was a third of the way thru my first penny survey from a casino. By this time I had found 113 wheaties (1917-S being the oldest) and a lone Indian - 1898.
