Completed a box over the weekend. It put us over the 100 boxes search milestone. Highlight of the hunt was a 1943S silver, and a few other S minted Jeffersons (1940S, 1948S and 1952S). I've posted our totals for finds below. It took us about 3 years to search the 100 boxes, and we've had a blast over that time. Still missing 1 nickel (1942S) to complete the set from circulation. Hopefully that find will come soon!
Well done!

Hi all!
Completed a box of nickels over the weekend. Highlights were a AU 1955D, a 1942P Silver, a 2014 Canadian Nickel we needed for our book and a first for us:

1963 Philadelphia Proof Nickel:



We've been hoping for a proof that wasn't a San Francisco one, and finally got one!

nice find! How is the easiest way to tell a coin like that is proof vs. just a gem unc coin? Since theres no S mintmark

Dadsoncoinhobby, great finds! It's rare to find Proofs coins in circulation, as it doesn't happen too often. It usually happens when they're accidentally or intentionally spent.

@1962penny - the mirror finish is the giveaway along with more squared rims. The AU type coins will have luster and shine but not a mirror finish.

thank you dadsoncoinhobby for the reply! I think I may have come across a proof this afternoon. it has a slight mirror-like finish (not sure if it comes across in pictures), and the features seem very bold and distinguished than other nickels of the time. Can anyone verify based off these photos?
