I was wondering if it would be worth someone's while to make their own BU rolls of coins. I'm not looking to create a ton of these rolls, but possibly 2 rolls of pennies to quarters (one for each mint).

I can probably get the pennies just after the first of the year but the nickels, dimes, and quarters is probably going to take awhile to accumulate.

Do you feel that there is sufficient upside value for someone to do this for their own purposes.

What got me thinking about this was this week's article on the scarcity of certain good condition quarters.

hmm, I've been wondering the same thing. Can you put together a BU roll from circulation and still be able to call it uncirculated with a premium of a 'real' roll.

For recent years, a bank wrapped UNC roll has some value but I doubt a hand wrapped roll would be worth more than face

Put together rolls will have minimal value... check with banks to see if you can location original rolls. Used to do this all the time with some success... even have two unopened bags of 1974 cents.

I have a Memorial cent BU roll set.

EDIT - I should add...that I put together mostly by searching. As I found really nice coins, I added them to tubes by year and mint.

BU is BU.

Some people want original rolls primarily to search for varieties or Gems but if the rolls aren't cherry picked they're more likely in put together rolls. I keep all the nice Uncs I see in circulation but rarely get enough for a whole roll.
Time don't fly, it bounds and leaps.

The reason that I was asking is that lately I been doing some roll searching of pennies and have been finding in some Brink's boxes almost completely brillant lookings pennies with maybe one or two really circulated coins. I can usually work the circulated coins out and then I replace them with a 2012 brillant pennies without damaging the plastic wrapping that Brink's packages the coins in.

Thus, in my mind at least, it becomes a brillant uncirculated roll that I set aside for the future (whenever that it is).

In this case alone, are these considered uncirculated or am I merely playing games?

Nice looking uncirculated coins I do set aside in hopes of accumulating a full roll, but so far I have not been able to do so. This I put into plastic roll cylinders also for future use.

Do we have a lot of member collecting creating BU rolls?

We have a dedicated CRH sub-site, may be if there are enough traffics, we can have one for collecting BU roll....

Btw, I always save new coins from my pocket changes.

Put together most memorial BU rolls from search?
How many millions of pennies do you search, Badthad?
I had searched about quarter million pennies in the past, and there is far far away from getting BU rolls for 1959, 1960s-70s. I had difficult to find even a decent BU 1960s and 1970 cents.

Here is a thought for you. My grandfather did this for years in the 70s. Hence I inherited rolls of P and D clad coins and copper pennies. Some are very nice looking, but most are common enough they are not worth the value they were when put away. Ten dollars in 1970 was worth a whole lot more than today. If, instead, the coins were put into silver back then, the initial value would still be there.

I think if our money was still made from PMs (as it should be), then there would be merit to putting away rolls from both angles - retaining value, and having better examples.

Yes, the vast majority are from searching bank boxs and bags. However, those 60's and most 70's are almost impossible to find in high enough grades for my standards so I was forced into buying a lot of OBW rolls and searching those for gems to complete a high grade roll for my set.

My biggest help for completing the set is due to a good friend of my who's >20 years old than I am. He saved all his change everyday for decades separated by denomination. He had thousands pennies in some giant, glass water bottles that he gave to me to search and cash in for him. He said I could keep anything I found of interest as a collector....thank GOD! LOL

Because he traveled a lot due his job, he had an awesome mix of mint marks. Tons of BU coins from the 70's, 80's and 90's were in these containers. Without his generosity, I couldn't have completed my roll set in a reasonable time!

My advice to you, seek out such a person. There are lot of them out there that have saved their change for decades. When they get old enough, they want to purge these huge hoards.
