I recently went through $40 in Canadian nickels. Found a 1946 USA, 23 regular USAs, a 1964 Swiss 20 rappen and 91 99.9 Ni Nickels.
I went to return them in the coin counting machine at the local Credit Union. It kept rejecting two nickels, a 1993 that looked pretty messed up and a 1998 that looked like it should have taken it. I took a closer look, and low and behold it had a silver look to it. I took it home, and studied it closer. It weighed a full gram more than what a 1998 nickel should weigh. Even though nickels from 1982-2001 (non P mintmarked) aren't magnetic, I did the slide test with my rare earth magnet. It acted just like normal silver coins do. I can only conclude that it was from a proof set, which means that it's made of sterling silver
Never thought I'd come across a silver nickel!

That is a great find from a roll. Congrats! That will make you want to keep searching for sure. Glad the machine flagged it for you or it might have slipped away.

It is a damp drizzling kind of day here, so I thought I would get some rolls to search. I was going to get toonies but the bank was short on them so I decided to get two hundred dollars of quarters and for a change get fifty dollars in dimes. I lucked out with the dimes. In one roll I found a 1962,1963 and 1968 silvers. I can only hope the luck continues with the quarters

I went back to coin roll hunting after a few months due to life getting in the way, but recently I got $50 in dimes and I found this 1954 Canadian silver dime. It is rare to get silver dimes from the '50s, usually they are from the '60s.

What's your 1954 heavily circulated silver dime worth, bullion value?

Found a 1925 penny in a Coinstar with a bunch of modern pennies.

I picked up a box of quarters and dimes the other day - been a while since I'd gone CRHing.. I needed to refill my trading stock of commemorative quarters for my European friends, plus the wife and I are probably headed to Vegas in May so I'm looking to get some US money at Canadian prices..

Results:
Box of dimes - 2503 coins (always a few rolls that have more than 50 coins)
31 US dimes
1 1960 silver
1 1968 silver

Box of quarters - old paper wrapped from mint, but pre-ARP... - 2000 coins
38 US quarters
1 UK 10p
3 wonderful coloured 2015 poppies (only found 3 of these in the wild so far)
and almost fell over from
1 1937(!!) silver.. (quite worn, but still)

Tried another box of quarters and dimes..

Box of dimes - 2531 coins
81 US dimes (one roll of 45 alone was a nice boost)
1 1968 silver
1 Barbados 10 cents

Box of quarters - 2002 coins
40 US quarters
1 coloured 2015 poppy quarter
and from some doofus ripping off the next person - (a group of five similarly wrapped rolls, one coin off in each roll) - instead of a quarter, there was:
2 rolls with a Canadian 5 cents coin
2 rolls with a Mexico 1 peso coin
1 roll with a New Zealand 10 cents coin

Nice finds!

I would have not minded the NZ 10 cents since I do not have one.

Third run of quarters and dimes, probably going to do it just one more time after this - pretty binged out..

Box of dimes - 2500 coins
215 US dimes! (4 full rolls conveniently put together for a CRHunter like me.. )

Box of quarters - 2000 coins
no US quarters (!)
3 coloured 2015 poppy quarter
1 UK 10p coin

this box was so clean of everything, it was like I had gone over these myself before! But I put a mark on searched rolls, so I knew I hadn't had these rolls..

to jbuck: I tried to PM you about if you wanted to trade a coin for that NZ 10 cent coin I fished from the last boxes. Not sure if it arrived, let me know if you would.. thanks, Darcy
