    Questions about searching bags/boxes/rolls of coins

    Hello all I have been reading through some of the annual reports and seen the amazing amounts of valuable coins that have been pulled out. I know which coins are silver so I'm at least that far ahead of the starting point lol.

    A few questions....

    1) I noticed some people have certain errors listed they look for. Any suggestion as to what to look for in that regard?

    2) How do I know if a coin is a proof?

    3) What do you do with all the CAN coins you find? I know sometimes they are silver but the clad coins? You cant just put them in the bag to take back to the bank can you? Maybe Ill just save them for a trip to Niagara Falls lol

    4)I live in a pretty rural area but there are plenty of banks around. Is it hard to find half's at banks to look through? Also how much does a bag or box or whatever they usually come in cost?

    I guess that's enough for now. Thanks to any for your help.
