Amazing find
Silver dollars for face value!, I often pay 19x that. Those nickel dollars are cool too, you should check for the different varieties.

These are my 2 most interesting finds today while CRH. I also found 1 roll of pennies that contained 32 pre 1959 and 3 wheat pennies in the one roll.

Nice find Coin Chick, especially that 1936 cent looks to be in great condition.

I've got to say, I have never seen the 'school money' coin before.

It was funny pulling it out of the roll. And it's baffled me as to why someone would put a plastic penny in a roll. It's hard to imagine someone was so cheap that they needed to put it into a roll. Lol. Even has corrosion on it.

My teller tells me they are happy to get rid of the 'silver' dollars as, they have lots of paper work to do to get them ready to send back.

So, my advice to you is, when you at your bank be sure to ask the tellers if they have any 'silver' coins you can take off their hands...

@ SHAFTA9a,

Yes, I totally agree with you... The branch said they'll call me when they get any in. The guy who sold them to me is the lead teller, so all is good! He has my name and number when he wants to get rid of them if any comes in.

I was shocked today when I got some change back from a Starbucks in Vancouver. I got 74 cents back in change, and to my surprise, the were some shiny pennies. At first, thought it was a new 2011 or 2012 1 cent coins, but they were 1958 1 cent coins!

I then asked the employee if she had additional 1958 pennies, she said, she has one full roll of 1958 pennies in her till. They are all beautiful UNC...and some Gem UNC. Seems that the original owner of the rolls wrote 1958 Canadian BU. So, I paid 50 cents for the roll.

My best cup of coffee ever.

Hard to believe to finding 55 year old BU pennies....especially at Starbucks. Would never imagined to find such coins.

Have attached a photo of my findings...

coinplus, can you search your 1958's for "hanging 8". because you can't sell here yet, do you have an eBay account?

Found this note in my stash. I am not a notes collector. Just wondering if it is worth something. Thank you

not bad, a 3 digit radar note. Depending on condition, id say maybe around $120-150?
