I have saved a lot of LMC, ATB and State Quarters and SBA and Ikes etc. Circulated mostly, except for bank unc rolls of Washington gold $$ and Wa State $.25,s and a lot of nice coins from circulation

I have rolls of `S` mint LMC about the only rolls and the bank rolls for BU coins.

I wonder if they are worth keeping?

What do You think? I am the guy who wants the older coins that are made with a value in silver, gold and not clad or zinc.

I thought of cashing them in. I haven't checked for errors etc. I cant see that good anyway to check for errors.

Thanks Gary

just went through that myself. I have all my clad collections but have dumped the rest. Unless they are in MS67 or better I was finding they had little upward mobility to speak, would be going anywhere, just TOO many out there and TOO high grades, population ya know. LMC's, including S mints don't seem to be a big hit unless BU copper, been trying to sell sets of BU's on eBay, slow going. Find people selling sets of rolls at auctions, just a lot out there. I got rid of all my small dollars, no real interest, wasn't a popular collector series anyway. State Quarters...? wasn't in to them, got a nice BU set that's it. Only thing I couldn't part with is those silly Ikes (JBuck!). Kinda like those cartwheels, never see them anymore. I don't think it's gonna be worth it unless you're high end.

First of all I don't bother with state or park Quarters .
Not into small Dollars or anything modern except Lincolns . I've been socking away OBW and BU roll sets of Lincolns starting 1954-P,D,S to 2017-P,D . I will keep this up as long as they continue producing the U.S. Lincoln Cent .

Unless it has a significant error, even in "gem" uncirculated, all of the items you mention, with the exception of the Ike dollars, are going to do you more good cashing them in, rather than carrying them around.

Find out the face value. Take them to a coin show. Offer them for 5%-10% over face to someone who wants to dig through them looking for a prize. That might make both of you happy.

Thanks for the info.

It will reduce the weight of the 10K+ of clad and zincolns. Only the copper and BU rolls to save.

Not a bad idea. You might be able to find someone who will give you a (small) premium for them, but make sure that your effort does erode it.

I cashed in most of my modern clads.
Still have some albums going but I got rid of A LOT.
Took it to the credit union coin star one Saturday afternoon after sorting for a couple of weeks.
It was over $300.

Always reminds me of when myself and a friend had a race to see how many of those Bicentennial Quarters we could accumulate. He ended up beating me with many thousands of them. We both went to coin shows to see if anyone wanted to buy them. One dealer actually said yes but for $0.24 each. We both ended up dumpting them all in the bank.

To me, Modern clad (1965 and newer in most cases) is like baseball cards from the mid-80's and newer. Aside from a few oddities, they'll never be worth anything more than face. I recently picked up a full set of BU (MS+) State Quarters, in albums, for $25.25. That's $0.25 over face for the 100 quarters, so I got the albums for $0.25. I wonder how long it took the person to put the set together, only to loose money on it.

Even Ike's. I got 31 Ikes for $30. I don't collect Ikes, but a free dollar is a free dollar.

So, no.... modern clad isn't worth keeping. Only errors, and fad coins are good for flipping.

You should collect Ikes.

I dumped the clad and Shield cents and nickels from 64 and newer. I saved most of the LMC 1990 back except the bu nice ones.
I did save the Ikes and the special minted LMC and the Nickels.

I like my CU as they will not charge me to run them through the counter so it saves the premium a the store for their counter and I don't have to roll them.

$350 to spend now.

Hmm, I've still got a bunch of those. Maybe I should release them into the wild. Is there really exactly zero premium on them? What about the Bicentennial Half Dollars too?

I wouldn't keep anything that can't be slabbed. Silver an exception of course.
