Are you holding onto all the nickels you check? If not your going to start to get some of your checked rolls back.

except for the first 61 rolls that I checked (they were put away from pocket change by a friend with no coin knowledge over the last few years) I check nothing except sealed Brinks boxes. The bank that I return them to does not use Brinks, because a teller that I spoke to said that they do not order their change from Brinks. So, anything returned from my bank to be redistributed does not go to Brinks. With the goal being 1 million nickels, I am bound to run into a few I already saw, though!

you said..."Actually, I find quite a few early gems. I love finding them, but in reality they arent anything too special. Nickels are about the same as Cents when it comes to people just filling jars and forgetting about them. My grandmother always cashed in Dimes and anything bigger. But Nickels and Cents got thrown into buckets. When I asked her to search her buckets, she dumped a years worth of searching on me. Well maybe not quite a tear, but she had six 5 gallon buckets of cents and another 55 gallon drum in the basement. And Nickels, she had not quite 10 5 gallon buckets. I found a few odds and ends in her change but nothing too special. The best coins I found happened to be the canadian ones for whatever strange reason. I found a 1926 Near Date Nickel, a few Tombac Nickels, and a couple of the key date Canadian Small cents. But this was before I even knew what a tombac nickel was or knew what the key dates were for canadian coins. I listed that 1926 Near Date Nickel on ebay, and I sold it for $80. Now the US coins, well nothing too special in there. I found a handfull of buffalo Nickels(one had a date 1936) and a bunch of common wheaties."

O.K. ...time to learn something new.
What's a near date and what's a tombac nickel?
Thanks for your time.

Sorry I'm late with the results of yesterday's 100 rolls; my server was down last night!

100 rolls
40 pre 1959
2 silver nickels (both 1943P)
"oddballs":
1987 Bermuda Nickel

Also found (I check all of these for varieties) were two 2005 Bison Reverse nickels with small diebreaks in lettering (kind of reminiscent of the BIE's on cents mostly in the 50's) No value I know; I'm just putting aside anything interesting from that year and type

Grand total in the Nickel survey to date:
761 rolls
295 pre-1959 (most common - 1941 - 28)
19 silver nickels (most common - 1943P - 6)
"oddballs"
1970 and 1987 Bermuda Nickel
1 Dateless Buffalo (1916 with a drop of Date Restorer)

In response to the post surprised about not finding more Buffalos, yes I am surprised too. Especially when I have been reading about so many being found by other people in the Coin Roll Hunting thread. I guess I'm making up for it with the silver nickels; based on what I'm reading I seem to come across more of them than most people.

Another 100 rolls to be done tonight; stay tuned!

Here are the results from yesterday's 100 rolls.

100 rolls
41 pre 1959
2 silver nickels (both 43S)
1 very nice Buffalo (1927, about VG)

One odd thing (other than finding the 1927!) that happened was one roll I checked contained two 1940-S. Not too big a deal, except that for the 861 rolls I had checked so far I had only found one 40-S, and these were bank (machine) wrapped rolls. Just a big coincidence, I guess

GRAND TOTAL UP TO NOW:

861 rolls
366 pre-1959 (top 5 most common dates: 1941(31),1958D(29),1957D(27),1940(25),1954D(19)
21 silver nickels (top 3 most common dates: 1943P(6),1943S(6),1944P(3)
"oddball" finds:
2 Bermuda nickels (1970,1987)
2 Buffalo nickels (1 dateless, 1 1927)

DATES AND MINTMARKS NOT YET FOUND:
1938D,1938S,1939D,1939S,1943D,1944D,1944S,1948S,1950,1950D,1951D,1951S
1953S

100 more rolls tonight! I will post in a few days the breakdown of every date and mintmark (pre-1959)

I should note here that I actually bought a third box yesterday, but it was nothing except bank-wrapped rolls of 2007P's. Due to the nature of what I am trying to do with this survey, I didn't count these rolls.

Did you open any2007-P's? You never know what doubled die there might in them. They would contain a few from the different dies that made them. If you find some in a couple of rolls then its great. But if after a few rolls you may elect to toss these back into circulation. You just never know till you check. Seems like most of the doubled dies found in Cents is found in the Philly branch coins. I would look at a few rolls before I toss them back.

I opened two of them; nothing exciting. I might put them aside and open a few of them on those rare occasions that I get bored!

I, too, am dabbling at collecting nickels, and am missing many. It is alot of fun to hunt for them- your finds really create some excitement. Looking thru coins is fun and I hope to be able to get a box or two to plow thru!!

Congrats- John

Really late with this update; this is actually work from yesterday. I bought two boxes yesterday, but I also bought 39 customer rolls from a separate bank so my grand total would have been 1000 rolls after yesterday. Didn't get to one of the boxes, so yesterdays totals that I actually worked on was 89 rolls.

89 rolls
44 pre 1959 (including a 38S, one of the series keys)
1 silver nickel (43S)
no "oddball" finds

GRAND TOTALS:
950 rolls
380 pre 1959 (top 5 most common: 1941(34),1940(33),1958d(31),1957d(29),1954d(19)
22 silver nickels (top 3 most common: 1943S(7),1943P(6),1944P(3)
"oddballs"
2 Bermuda Nickels (1970,1987)
2 Buffalo nickels (1927, dateless)

NOT YET FOUND:
11 (38d,39d,39s,44d,44s,48s,50,50d,53s)

By the way, the 38s was from one of the customer rolls, not a bank box.

I will do a box of 50 tonight, which will bring the total to 1000 rolls. I will also do a breakdown of every date, which I plan to do after every 1000 rolls. Happy coin hunting to all!

Small error in the last update: I list 11 dates as not having been found yet, but I only listed 9. 1943d and 1951s were also supposed to be on that list.
