    PMD Follies


    And then there's those with equal damage on both sides. What has this nickel been thru?

    Since I'm doing casino finds, might as well list my oldest discoveries:

    1˘ - 1898 (2/11/96)
    5˘ - 1899 (12/8/05)
    10˘ - 1936 (11/11/88)
    25˘ - 1908-D (11/28/06)
    50˘ - 1906-O (10/2/06)

    Canada
    1920 (1 cent - 2/21/08)

    Non-Canada Foreign
    1929 (Panama - 5 centesimos - 2/26/04)

    Then there's personalized PMD. Someone named "Donny" (based on the third coin) decided to deface pennies to commemorate which year he found them. Imagine how many he did for me to find three of them over the years.

    Here's my list of wheaties I've never found in casino slots:

    1909-S
    1909-S VDB
    1911-S
    1914-D
    1915-S
    1931
    1931-S
    1936-D


    I found most of the series in a monster score in 1996, though that 36-D has remained elusive.

    Best I can list in that department are dates that I've found multiples of:

    36P - 7
    19P - 5
    16P - 4
    23P - 4
    24P - 4
    28P - 4
    35P - 4
    14P - 3
    15P - 3
    25P - 3
    37P - 3
    13D - 2 (T-1)
    13S - 2 (T-1)
    13P - 2 (T-2)
    17P - 2
    17S - 2
    20P - 2
    27P - 2
    29P - 2
    36D - 2
    36S - 2

    Some of these are probably a bit higher but I only started keeping track in March 1997. It's still funny to realize that a 1936P buffalo is more commonly found than four different Jefferson dates. Another oddity is that I've found two each of the Type 1 1913 D & S mint (5.3m & 2.1m mintages, respectively) yet none of the much more common 1913P Type 1 (31m). Go figure...
    I'm not going to list all of my buffalo counts, but to compare stats...here are my top few buffalo dates:
    1936-P - 35 - only 5 more for a roll
    1937-P - 18
    1920-P - 15
    10 varieties with between 5 and 9
    8 varieties with 3 or 4 (with three S varieties)
    8 varieties with 2

    I've also found multiple copies of 7 V-nickels (with 2 or 3 of each)

    You are slightly ahead of me on finding all the wheat cents as I have 12 left to find
    1909-S
    1909-S VDB
    1910-S
    1911-S
    1912-S
    1913-D

    1915-S
    1922-D
    1926-S
    1931-S
    1932

    I have 31 of the 1936-D so that is odd that you don't have that one.

    Here's my all time dime finds. Almost all of these are from Coinstars, but some were from a few trips to the Circus Circus casino many years ago. Back in the day they were the only casino with dime slots and $100 would routinely net you three or four silvers.

    CHOMP! Something took a bite out of this nickel. The reverse is perfectly fine.

    Wartime Nickels [490]
    1942-P (11/4/19) [31]
    1942-S (12/10/19) [22]
    1943-P (1/7/20) [99]
    1943-D (9/15/09) [9]
    1943-S (1/7/20) [98]
    1944-P (12/17/19) [53]
    1944-D (9/24/19) [21]
    1944-S (8/18/11) [21]
    1945-P (2/11/20) [55]
    1945-D (8/12/11) [21]
    1945-S (9/3/19) [60]
    With all this free time I've been looking thru some of my old TNet posts and in one from 2008 I gave an accurate count of how many wartime nickels I'd found to that point. This was such an amazing discovery because I misplaced some data in a 2017 move and this filled in the gaps.

    The above list now reflects the completely up to date total of war nickels. I'm closer to 500 than I thought!

    What a ratio! The golden era of CRHing right there. Surprised that dime didn't break the coinstar machine for a week. Your FDR dime list looks pretty similar to my jeff nickel list. I had several tellers ask me over the past few months if I was gonna do nickels next. I had the initial thought of "I don't think you understand how hard this FDR set is to collect" and my response of "I think I'll just take a break". Nickels are doable though, especially with my 1939D find. Obviously, the '50D would be tough. The romantic in me wants to take a crack at the Washington quarter set, but with all the W hunters out there, whatever was left in circulation is now gone.

    Everyone else is talking about shutting operations down and you're adding 17 silvers to the cause. Good luck on reaching 500!

    Canadian coinage wasn't immune to dommages post-monnayer.

    Before Vegas penny slots went the way of the dodo in Jan 2012, I found a fair few.

    The breakdown (bold = found):

    George V - 1920, 1932

    George VI
    - 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1945, 1946, 1947, 1947 ML, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952

    ELIZABETH II
    - 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962-2012

    Note: Technically, the 2012 wasn't a casino find since penny slots disappeared before they were released.

    Haven't discussed holes yet, probably the most commonly found deliberate damage that I find in slots. This quarter got triple the treatment.

    Quarters have never been high on my hunting agenda. I remember trying around $5000 over a few months and finding a grand total of one silver. Still, they do appear now and then, as evidenced by the following discoveries:

    Barber: 1908-D

    Standing Liberty: Dateless S-mint

    Washington: 38-S, 42, 42-S, 43-S, 49, 49-D, 53-S, 56-D 57, 64, 64-D

    Here's PMD with a morbid side. A small X has been placed on JFK's head, creating a so-called "Assassination" half dollar.

    I only started searching for halves in 2005, around the same time I joined TNet coincidentally. Even though my missing records have yet to be found, I was able to mostly reconstruct my half finds by checking out my old posts.

    Barber: 1906-O

    Walker: 1942

    Franklin: 1951, 1951-D, 1952, 1952-D, 1953-S, 1954, 1954-S, 1958-D, 1959, 1960-D, 1951-D, 1962-D, 1963-D

    JFK: All regular issue 1971-2001; most NIFC (1970-D, 1987PD, 2002-2018); 1968-S, 1969-S, most non-silver proofs 1971-1995 and a few later years.

    This li'l guy was virtually unidentifiable when I found it. Upon closer inspection I noticed part of a bird's wing. It was a matter of time before figuring out it was a Trinidad & Tobago 1 cent.

    One of the more amusing aspects of hunting casinos is the wide array of foreign coins that passed perfectly thru slots. My forum posts list at least 27 nations that have been found, but I can only account for 21.

    Here are most of the countries that infiltrating Vegas slots:

    Australia
    Austria
    Barbados
    Canada
    China
    Cuba
    Germany
    Great Britain
    Guatemala
    Ireland
    Mexico
    Netherlands
    Panama
    Poland
    Russia
    Saudi Arabia
    South Africa
    Spain
    Sweden
    Turkey
    United Arab Emirates

    Even non-coins made their way into Vegas slots. This convincing-looking token is slightly larger than a nickel and kinda heavy but it was close enough in size to fall out of a nickel machine, shorting me five cents.


    It wasn't uncommon for Angel tokens like this to come out of half dollar machines.
