Nickel and Penny roll hunting finds since February 2013

OK guys here are my finds for nickel and penny coin roll hunting since February 2013. I have only hunted about 15 nickel roll and only got one good one which half of the nickels were bu 1938 and about the rest were from the '40s '50s and '60s which is where most of the old nickel finds are from (A few '40s-'60 5c are from other rolls). I have searched many 10c, 25c ,and 50c rolls but found no silver, the only time I found silver was a 1964 dime that was in my change. Also, Some of my good finds are all ready on this site.

PS. If only was this good at metal detecting, whereas my best coin finds are 2 buffalo nickels and 1 barber dime.

Nice finds coinman.

These are great finds! Can you post some pictures of the errors you are unsure about and the 1938 BU nickels? Also, do the 1964 nickels have full steps? I think Bigscores was interested in them some time ago.
