    Proofs, Buffaloes, and...Gold?

    Yeah, I just figured 2 ND, as I couldn't really make out those other two either. Kinda thought -9 on your 1917

    When did the US Gov't last make Buffalo Nickles? We just found one by chance too. It is just in worse shape than those above, and I cannot tell how dates are on them at all??

    I occasionally dabble in quarters, but haven't found any W's. I've hardly pulled any 2019's for that matter, have both Lowell but only one American war memorial and only one of the San Antonio Missions. I only get bags, so I'd have to find them after they were spent basically. Have managed to pull a decent # of silvers, so I'm not complaining.

    I started with quarters just three weeks ago but I've found 5 Ws in just 4 boxes + 20 rolls. They may not have been distributed evenly by state. On the other hand, the only silver quarter I've found recently was in a coinstar (free for account holders) reject tray when I dumped 2 skunk boxes of halves.

    The only coinstar by me I can hope for coins has been closed for repairs for like a month...
