At the bank I take out a 20$ and told the teller I’d like to deposit half and have the other half in Nickels please. It took her some time and she gave me 5 rolls of em. Back at home I opened each roll carefully to avoid damaging to the coins. First roll there weren’t that many new nickels but only lots of 1964s and 90s nickels. Second roll was just as boring as the first, newer nickels and 90-80s nickels. No 2019s yet.

    Third roll showed the unexpected v

    That is a nice haul on the unexpected Buffalo's. Looks like someone turned them in at the right time for you.

    Curious, Do people turn them in intentionally or by accident

    I would say both. Some people just dont want the coins around, so they turn them in for paper money which is way lighter to carry and spend. Some, may have inherited Grandpa's collection and didn't know or care what they were, so they cashed them in. Also, about 2 weeks ago was the great American coin hunt. There may have been a dealer or collector in your area, who took a few rolls to the bank in order to put them into circulation, and you lucked out. Whatever the reason, you came away the winner, and I would have been thrilled to have received those over the counter from a bank. My bank saves me coins, but it's one here and one there. I usually buy rolls of pennies, because I do so well with finding Wheats.
