I used to go those area for CRWs during daytime. Very productive indeed. But those solid rolls of silver were usually from better off area!

It honestly would be quite funny to see a thief struggle with 20+ pounds of coins


How about that career Ecuadoran thief that took that 86 pound pail of gold flakes off that truck in NYC? The videos showed him walking away fairly easily, went two blocks to his car, feds think hes in LA hiding now...$1.6Mil I think it was !

Are you suggesting switching to ACH (Armored Car Hunting) vs. CRH?

Interesting thread. I think that high crime ares are less likely to have another CRHer in the area. Whenever I pick up rolls locally, I get the feeling that they are dumps from some other hunter who has a better relationship with the bank and they allow him/her to deposit rolls when I have to bag a send out.
That being said, I have gone to some banks on the famed 8 mile road in Detroit and there were no halves to be had. maybe I need to go deeper.....

A concealed carry permit would help the situation a bit.
It is a federal offense to carry any weapon into a bank or financial institution unless you're a qualified LEO (cop, etc.). Even CCW's (trained or not,sorry to say) are "unarmed" from you vehicle until you return with your box of goodies. But yes, I agree, unless you're Scottish and want to "pick a fit"!

I did not make the comment, Earle did. My reply was that being armed and trained is not a reason to go looking for trouble. In other words, one might do best to stay away from the bad side of town, armed or not.

Where did you get this idea? The only place the Feds can ban concealed carry is on federal property. From the quick research I did, it appears that Montana (surprisingly) is the only state that specifically bans firearms in banks.

EDIT- I only did very quick web searching. I am in no way giving legal advice. Every state is different and the banks themselves can also ban concealed carry.

Not a CRH story exactly, but I once did a transaction for a customer whose business was in a "high crime" area. Among the cash in the transaction were two 1957 $1 silver certificates. I still have them. http://goccf.com/t/179101
Oldest circulation finds: Cent 1902; 3CN 1867; Nickel (Buffalo/no date); Dime 1924; Quarter 1940; Half 1964; Dollar 1971 (Canadian 1964)

Perhaps customer wrapped rolls would be better in terms of luck. But would thieves deposit stolen coins in their local bank?

I guess I shouldn't venture down to East L.A. anytime soon ... No worries. I'm in a very low-crime area, and I literally have no less than 25 banks at my disposal within 10-15 miles of me. You have to go about 20-25 miles any direction from where I live (except West as there's this big blue thing with no banks, and lots of fish ) to get to a high crime area.
12/17/16 CRH/CF/CS totals
Cents: Indians:2, Steel:5, Wheats:686
Nickels: V:2, Buffalo:48, Key Date Jeffersons:14 (38-D:4, 38-S:4, 39-D:1, 39-S:5), Pre-60:2,996
Silver (15.10 oz): War Nickels:114, Dimes:31 (2 Mercury), Quarters:5, Halves:27 (7 90%-1 Walker, 20 40%), Australia 50% 6 Pence:1

That seems to be the case. However, banks like any other business can choose to ban them. In Texas, it was recently legalized to openly carry a firearm (in a waist or shoulder holder and requiring a CCP), but it's still up to the institution to make the rules. And, in this case, it may only apply to open-carry and not concealed-carry.

I agree with above comments that looking for trouble in a "high crime" area is not worth it. At the least, you lose $25 for a box of cents. At the most, you're dead.

" Coin Roll Hunting In High Crime Area's "
WOW what has become of our hobby ? Are we getting to be that desperate to find a few pieces of silver ? Perhaps when your in that high crime area bank trying to get boxes of coins ,a couple of thugs will come in and rob not only the bank but you too .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

Not true. The federal government CAN NOT regulate firearms transport on private property within a state. They CAN requlate transport/possession on federally-owned property, such as a post office or a federal correctional facility.

An individual state may or may not allow "bank carry". I know it's legal in my state, and if I carry in a bank I carry concealed.
