I thought it would be worthwhile starting a thread about opening bank rolls. I've seen them unrolled, cut open, ripped open, etc. Let's share our favorite techniques. I carefully clip one of the rolled ends with scissors. Then, I carefully slice toward the other end trying not to touch the edges of the coins. I'm sure there's more than one way to skin a roll!

For paper rolls, I use snub-nosed pliers and pull off each end in one stroke each. So two rings of paper are removed. Then the remaining paper middle around the coins unfurls easily. For plastic rolls, I don't have a good method but bending each roll and then squeezing to extrude the coins. I check all end-rollers first, just to make sure I don't damage a good coin!

Best way I've found is to just rip it open. If a roll is being difficult then I put a small slice on an end and that usually does the trick.

If a roll is being too tough however... you could always slide it into a shotgun shell and shoot it. Kinda damages the coins though....

I experimented with the kitchen garbage disposal. But, it kinda damages the coins too! #128518;

Part of the trick for me is keeping the wrapper salvageable. I generally reuse the wrappers and tape them once I reload the coins. If I pluck any coins out, I add coins from a bag of filler coins of the same denomination.

I check the enders, completely uncrimp both ends, unroll the whole thing and slide the horizontal coin "stack" onto the work surface.

No wonder it takes you guys days to search a box. I got mine, a box of nickels, at 4:30 pm today, done by 7_pm in time for Tucker. Just give my old stockman a few swipes on the diamond board, take those brinks-wrap (plastic) give 'em a nice end to end slit(lightly scored) then crack it. Go through and set aside second lookers by dates and any special picks, voila'!

This box was a skunk, 1-2009d which got set free along w/4 more, 3 beat to death 2017d, first I've seen(no pee's) about 5 common date 40's& 50's, a potful of 57-64d's, not one RPM. No runs, no hits only one error, 1998 5c Bahamas in black and white

Small screwdriver picking the crimp apart. push the coins out from the other side. Goes very quick... Can still use the tube if I need too...

I use a mini eye glasses screw driver to open the ends. Works perfectly.

I usually take a cold chisel and a two pound sledge hammer. Sometimes on more difficult rolls I go for the full size sledge. There usually a couple of undamaged coins left to search. Just joking. I unroll the crimping on the end and save the paper intact.

Unrolling seems to be the way to go over slicing the wrapper. I'm going to give it a shot!
