Yes, I did a road trip there a couple of years ago and I had some decent success on the rural route coming down to myrtle beach from Carolina. It just takes one bank and a couple of solid rolls to make your day. That is what happened with me. I did good but again that was a while ago. Many...
Well, since you are already here I will share some pearls of wisdom. First, it depends on what you are after. If you are after old copper then continue searching penny rolls. If you are after silver this is the order in which you should be searching. The best luck you will have is with half...
Slow and steady wins the race boys. I have been at this since 2007 but there have been guys even on this forum that have been at it since the 70 or 80's. I can't imagine what their pile of silver must look like. Obviously somebody wants the secret out so that no one will see the point in doing...
I coin roll hunt with my father and dread the day when he leaves this earth. I am almost 33. If that tells you anything. I say find some common ground with your Dad and make it happen soon.
Garoulady, I am glad that you found a friend to enjoy this with. When I first started this addiction I would take my wife with me but she soon grew tired of it. She was still ok with me going by myself and that was fun for a while but then I got home sick after spending days on the road. Then I...
This would explain why I kept getting skunked on my latest trip to central Va! LOL You guys are swarming around that area. I kept hearing oh someone just came in and got ours yesterday. I can't believe how much this hobby has grown in a few years. Wow.
It can be like that sometimes. I did roughly the same thing yesterday but lucked out at the last bank. I ended up with 1 40% and 11 silver rosies. Not bad. The good thing was that it was all on my route home.
I might try at my new bank. I have only hear of a handful of guys able to get them and a couple of them are no longer on the forum. Kevinbomb I am interested to know how you went about getting your bank to order them. PM me if you would like to share. Chances are there is no silver but you never...
You might get a buyer on ebay since they seem almost uncirculated but they are easy to come by so don't expect too much of a profit. Ike dollars are harder to come by and people buy them not necessarily for their value but their novelty.
WilmingtonSilver explained my thoughts on why people do it. Not everyone has access to coin counters. I have often wondered if would be a hastle to do. Wilmington you don't by chance mark S on the rolls you pulled silver out of do you? I got a box of those the other week.
That is a very nice find my friend. What hurts though is missing the ones the bank sent away. But for those of us who order boxes that is how we find the silver. Great profit and that is what it is all about profit and the thrill of the hunt.
