  4. Another Half Dollar Box and a Box or Quarters

    Picked up my Bi monthly coin delivery from the CU and didn't have any luck with Ag in either box however; I did find 3 1987 Halves 2x D and 1x P and all were in mid to high AU condition! Gold tone, no major scratches from a visual inspection, and pretty shiny. The quarter box seemed sad at...
  5. A Little Ag from the Teller Tray

    On lunch yesterday, I had a hundie in my pocket burning a hole. I stopped by a WF teller window and asked politely, if they had any dollar or half-dollar coins in their trays they wanted to get rid of. Teller handed me 7.50 in halves, and one was a 1967 40%er!
  6. Another $1500. in Halves

    Picked up $2k over the past week in halves, and still have 1 more box to process. Haven't found much in the last $1500. except for a handful of NIFCs and three interesting coins: one was a 1982 half that had the center milled out, almost all the copper. I thought it might be a trick coin, but...

    Hit two different grocery stores before departing for a family trip this Farter's day. In one, found a 1951 Rosie and in the other I found $1.09 in change and a 5 euro cent. As much as I dislike the current climate and situation we find ourselves in, I hope more folks re-monetize their coin...

  12. Picking Through $1000. in Halves

    all the silver was picked out, but there was enough brilliant 1971s - 1999s to make me suspicious this was the remnants of a collection dump. I got nearly 80 2018s and found another $70. or so in 1998s. Anyone think these are worth setting aside and trying to sell/trade? it starts being an...

  16. CRH is Becoming Mainstream

    I was in my local CU yesterday looking for my own 'fertile ground,' and noticed that nearly everyone in there was asking for or picking up boxes of rolled coins. Two guys were even discussing W mint marks and the occurrence of 90%s in half boxes! WTH! don't they realize this 'sport' is not for...

  18. Connecticut State Quarter "Greaser" Error?

    I also found a Connecticut State Quarter with "Oak" in "The Charter Oak" barely discernible. There's not much wear anywhere in proximity to the work Oak and thought it might be grease packed into the tiny lettering of the die. I cannot provide pictures at this time, but if there is an interest...
  19. CRH Find: Hawaii State Quarter Error

    long time, no see! The last time I was here, I was transmiting from AFG! Found this last night, and I can't find much info on it.
