    May have missed a massive score, but still a big hit - second time this year

    Hit a few banks today

    $16 in cents
    $24 in nickels
    $205 in dimes
    $30 in quarters
    $3 in halves

    Last bank of the morning, went in and asked for $60 in coins - $50 in dimes, $6 in nickels, and $4 in cents. Asked for halves and the teller had $2. She said that I should have stopped in a week or two ago (last time I was there was probably a month or 5 weeks ago) because someone turned in dollars that she said were very shiny like silver. She said that the person's father had passed and they turned in these coins. She also said she shipped them out. While it was not clear exactly what these coins were - I was really bummed because I may have missed some massive dump of Morgans or Peace dollars - or maybe they were just BU Ikes. I will never know. This is the same bank that I found the large wheat dump some months ago (prior post), so it is always a stop on the rotation. Guess I should visit more frequently than once every several weeks.

    So she proceeded to hand me the dimes and she gave me $10 in CWR and $40 in MWR. I don't like MWR so I asked if I could give back the $40 for CWR. She only had one additional CWR and it turned out to be this vintage roll which contained solid silver (44 FDR, 6 Merc). Wonder if it was from the same person who dumped the dollar coins. I get excited when I get vintage rolls, but more often than not they are full of recent coins, or clad with 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s dates

    This is the second time this year I have found a solid roll of silver dimes (prior post in February or March). Not from the same bank. That $6 of nickels from that bank had nothing and the cents had some common wheats.

    Rest of the rolls of the day yielded one 1964 silver dime, a 1943 Canadian silver dime (both CWR) and a dateless D-mint buffalo in a MWR.

    Now that's what you call " being at the right place at the right time", congrats on the solid catch. In all my years of hunting dimes, I NEVER pulled a solid CWR roll.

    So many thoughts...first big congratulations on this haul! One of my CRHing Career goals is to find a solid roll of dimes and you've done it twice in the same year?!?! Amazing! Second, KGVI coins are great. Third, you gotta nic-a-date that nickel. Could be something really cool.

    Congrats! Happy for you.

    I wonder how many of us seeing your pic and reading your post will be asking for CWRs of dimes this week!
