    Best dimes find I have ever had - unbelievable

    Went into bank this afternoon - got $35 of CWR dimes and $6 of nickels. That was all the dimes they had immediately available.

    When I got home this evening, I couldn't believe my eyes. Clearly my best find of the year.

    6 rolls (the ones with the diamond logo) were nearly all solid silver and the other roll was all clad.

    In all, 256 roosevelt and 6 merc dimes (the halves were used to prop the coins up). There were even 4 extra dimes in total in the rolls.

    I really think people are turning in saved coins they inherited but didn't know why they were special to Grandma and Grandpa. I actually think now is probably the best time to CRH.

    With all of the job losses and hard times caused by the coronavirus, I wouldn’t doubt for an instant that a bunch of collections are being dumped so that folks can pay rent or even put another meal on the table.

    But why would they do it for face value unless they don't know what they have. Actually sad if they are in dire need of money and they are giving money away they could have used.

    You nailed it. A large majority of folks have not used cash in years. I do, and I observe. Perhaps all of the younger generation have never used cash. They wouldn’t even know there’s a difference.

    A lot of younger people ( 30 or less) have no idea that we ever had silver coins ( much less gold) and they also have no idea that our 1 cent coins are zinc ! So they will turn in rolls of silver halves, quarters ,dimes and obsolete coins of all kinds - for face value ! Never insult them , they are a valuable part of our CRH teams !
