    Searching coin rolls

    I've seen a few posts on this recently. I used to do this when I was younger but mostly looking for wheats. Does anybody actually find much in the way of silver or older wheats (I always seemed to find 1950+ wheats) this way? That merc find down below here was nice, but I seriously doubt there are too many of them floating around nowadays...lol

    Always check your change....A guy that works at a nearby plant got back in his change a $5 gold piece.He thought is was a dirty old nickel until he cleaned it up.I had sent the story from the local newspaper to W & E TREASURES(News in the Headlines section).

    Re: Searching coin rolls

    Hi all, I have had pretty good luck searching rolls. Recently I purchased a couple rolls of halves and found 9 silver kennedys. Also many years ago I opened the cash drawer at work one morning to find a fresh roll of Merc's. That made my day, the best 5 bucks I've ever spent!!!!!
    Good luck

    Re: Searching coin rolls

    Research may help to find those old coins. Also "plain luck" works too..........

    my daughter works at the IGA food store she thought the mercs were from canada until one day she gave me a merc in change. now she knows so she has brought me a couple. also a few wheaties. My wife works at a bank and one day a guy came in with several silver dollars to exchange for paper money. my wife got 4 for me. seems they had been stolen but nobody claimed them.
