    Don't trust the rims, very dirty silver!

    I know people that work quick by just checking the rims, well I almost missed two 90% and a 40% today, I don't usually look for errors but I do check each date. Glad I did

    which one is the silver?



    trick question they all are



    good score today, best of the year so far

    Yep been fooled by only looking at the rims, almost missed them myself till I learned to actually look at the coins before just thinking no silver in that roll....

    you are not alone - i have almost missed silver as well because I thought the rim was clad. Now I check date or drop the coin on my desk.
