Kabiye_Lady,

Thank you for the reply on the '82 & '83 nicklels. Very interesting stuff.

So the same would apply to other denominations for the same years huh? I geuss I'll be saving up some rolls of these to see how I do on ebay.

I like selling on ebay but it can be a gamble. I just sold four 40% Kennedy halves on there but sadly, they went for less than melt value . I think, from now on, I'm just going to hoard those up until I'm ready to send a batch to the refiner. Now if I could just hit it like of-granpa did I could be ready in just one day. 297 40%ers in one day! Makes me sick! But I'm happy for him ! ....I guess .

LOL

I'm kinda sick myself after finding those 40%ers. I'm calling the bank in the morning and see if the person who cashed those in cashed any other rolls in...pennies, dimes, nickels, or quarters maybe? It would be interesting to find out.

I searched $200 in nickels tonight. I found 21 nickels 1959 or earlier, 3 of which were silver, a 1943p and 2 1945s, one of which is in really nice shape.

of-grandpa,

Good move on your part to go back to that bank to check for more stuff. May you find an armload of more good coins!

I'd say that's a pretty good ratio of silver nickles for $200 too.

I've done a little nickle roll searching recently. I didn't keep real close track of the dollar amount but I'm guessing it's been about $150-160 worth. In those I've found the following pre-1960's stuff:
2- 1959D
1- 1959
5- 1958D
1- 1957D
3- 1956D
1- 1955-(I hear this one's kinda tough to find)
1- 1949S
1- 1947D
2- 1947
1- 1943P-(this is only my second silver ever)
1- 1942-(not silver)
1- 1940
I've also been saving anything '63 and older. In addition to those I've been saving all '82 & '83's. Also the 1968D's because of their relatively low mintage. When I get full rolls of the '82, '83, & '68D's, etc. I'm just going to sell them - ebay or whatever. In the earlier ones I'm going to go for two full sets (one for each of my kids). Anythng in excess of that I will likely sell as well. I'm in this mainly for the hobby but also any extra $ I might be able to make along the way is always nice.

Also I'm just curious, of-grandpa, what region of the country are you in. I'm not trying to zero in on your exact location- LOL - Ive just been finding it interesting how different things can be found in different parts of the country when it comes to CRHing. It almost seems like there might be a pattern when it comes to rural regions vs. large city regions.

Yup Numi, that 55 is a great find. I've only managed to come across 1 in my nearly $500 searched. I consider it to be the last semi-key of the series.

I've seen lots of talk about these 82/83 coins and the reasons they are sory after...how much does a roll of these typically go for on the eBay, give or take?

It seems to me that the rural banks have a much better success rate. My parents live out in PA and I have found silver halves out there at a much better rate. NY does not seem to be very successful silver wise--I think more people=more collectors=less coins left unsearched. Jersey banks seem to be somewhere in the middle of NY and PA

I'm headed to the Post Office and then to the bank and plan on picking up a few Jeffersons...I'll let you all know my success

GFR3, Upon a much closer examination of that '55 nickel, I'm beginning to have reservations about it. I got out my loupe and looked real close at the spot where a mint mark would normally be. Believe or not I think this coin has been doctored ! It looks like someone has tried to remove the D! When I gave it a closer inspection with the loupe, I could see minute scratches and what COULD be the remnants of the D. Is really worth it to go to that kind of trouble for the '55? If this is the case, this will be the first deliberately modified coin I've come accross. Amazing what some folks will do to a perfectly good coin.

As for those '82 & '83 coins. I really don't know much about them aside form what I've read here from 'chevrolet454ss' and the info that 'Kabiye_Lady' provided for us back on page 4 of this thread. I haven't tried selling any of them yet but I've been hanging onto any that I come accross for now. If I find later on that it's not worth it, then I'll just take them back to the bank or see if any of our Canadian counterparts would like to trade them for some Can. stuff.

I learned something new about the location of banks and how that effects the type of coins they might have on hand. At one branch of my bank, I asked if they would mind giving me 10 rolls of some old ratty-looking customer wrapped rolls. They said that they rarely have anything but the fed wrapped newer rolls. The teller proceeded to explain that since they were surrounded by primarily businesses that this was the type of rolls they had most of the time. Conversely, the branch down the road dealt mostly with residential customers and they were more likely to have customer wrapped rolls !

I decided to test this theory and went right down the raod to the other branch. I started by asking for customer wrapped rolls. The teller replied by saying "oh I rarely have anything BUT the customer wrapped rolls". Very interesting stuff!

I didn't find much, in 8 rolls, other than a '57 and a Canadian. But I could tell that there was a wide range of dates from these rolls. I'll try a few more times at this one bank to see if my odds get better. Come to think of it, this is the branch I got rolls of nickels from the day I found a silver out of about 10 rolls.

Hello Everyone

I went back to the bank this morning to see if the individual who had cashed in the 40%ers had cashed in any other rolls...they hadn't. They did give me a 1976 Australian 20 cent coin like this one:



The coin they gave me has smooth edges from wear and the rim is broken...probably from getting caught in their counting machine.

Numi asked where I was located. I'm in Arkansas in a town of less than 50,000. Most of the luck I've had in Halves roll searching has been from customer rolls. I've done 4 boxes of halves and 3 of those were brand spanking new 1996Ps. Something I've noticed on nickel searches is the boxes I'm getting have a much smaller success rate then most of you. My average is about 10 keepers per box and out of 8 or 9 boxes I've only found 3 silver, all of which were last night out of 2 boxes.

I do believe that population greatly affects your overall success rate on searching, especially in halves. Some of the smaller banks in these areas will be sitting on some customer rolled halves with no demand for them. Now once you start ordering the rolls from the Fed or Armored Carriers you are going to get the same as anywhere else...it's just the luck of the draw.

Have fun and don't forget that the banks are closed Monday...get your roll-searching boxes before the weekend!!

i dont think someone would bother to doctor a 1955, they dont retail for much so it wouldnt be worth the effort probobly just scratches ive seen similar things on 1964's and I know someone wouldnt doctor those

I agree with xavier; probably excessive scratches or at best, overzealous die polishing.

Referring to of-grampa's post, my dump bank is actually open Monday; I just have to check around tomorrow when I pick up my boxes to try to find another open bank so I can buy on Monday!

My nickel day was good. I went through 140 bucks worth and found was cool coins.
1. 1979 s proof nickel. I need check it if an filled s or non filled s to my proof set. Its nice and its my first proof ever found on nickels
2. 1910 V nickel with an wore out no date V nickel I cant read it and its slick like glass. I cant see anything on it
3. Handful of common date 1939 through 1959 nickels. No special dates there but one 1958 nickel I installed in my book.

To tell peaple asking why I save 1982 and 1983 nickels ? Reason there were no mint sets those years. On ebay they pay like 220 dollars for an roll of 1982 denver nickels that bu roll. It not just nickels its quarters , half dollars . I never checked on dimes before on 82 and 83. I will try sell my extra stuff later on ebay .

I also found another year they pay like 45 to 50 bucks per roll on ebay is 1997 denver nickel rolls. I just started saving all 1997 denver nickels to build serval bu/au rolls for sale on ebay. It may be fluke on why they pay that much since they made for 485 million nickels that year. I think stupid to pay 50 bucks for two dollar roll of nickels since made over 485 million of them. If I sell my homemade rolls for 25 bucks each I will happy to sell them to buy stuff like an 1950d , 1938d and s 1939d nickels I need for my sets.

Its strange market on 1997 denver nickels. You can buy 1958 bu nickel roll for less than 10 bucks on ebay that is rare since they onley minted 18 million on 1958 philly rolls. 1997 they minted almost minted an half billion nickels. It got me why they are selling for high prices on 1997. I cant tell you and I dont know. In my batch of nickels I did I found serval rolls on 1997 denver nickels in those bank rolls. Not rare and easy to find.

XOG & CND, I hope you guys are both right about the '55 nickel. I guess I'd rather have a scratched up '55 than a scratched up '55D.

Xavier, you mentioned the 1964's. Man, don't you guys just get tired of seeing those? It's amazing how many you can come accross in a single roll. I get excited almost every time when I first see one, because you can tell it's an old nickle, but then I flip it over and there it is - another darn '64 . I hardly look twice at them now. They just go right in the reject pile. Nearly 3 billion of them minted in '64. What the heck got into the mints that year?! Maybe they wanted to make sure all the baby boomers were going to have enough nickels? Who knows ? Why couldn't they have done that with the '64 Kennedy halves? Guess I'd just find something else to complain about huh? -LOL

chevrolet454ss, Wow! Congrats on the couple of good finds in your recent rolls . It would be nice to find an S proof. I've found a few S mints from before 1971 but I guess those don't count do they? And if I were to find a V nickle, no matter what shape it was in, I'd be pretty excited. Heck, I haven't even found my first buffalo yet. Guess I better pick up the pace!

Thanks for the extra insight on the 82 & 83 nickels. I've started hanging onto all I come accross so we'll see what happens when I get some full rolls. That's pretty odd about the '97D. You just never know what's going to sell on ebay. Maybe it was a fluke or maybe the buyers know something we don't?
