Found this one today in an off-grade B/U roll such as I am inclined to buy. Some coins not so hot, a few quite nice. The roll had three of these, the top grade is already in my collection upgrading my old AU one. This is the second one, and both of them are stage A. Oddly the third one is stage B and was way harder to spot with a loupe. Anyway, here is:

E&V, Lately it's been more about selling off some of the mountain of stuff I have sitting around rather than searching for more. Trying to cull the herd at least a little.

But it's still all about having the right coins to look through. Tonight I am trying to go through about 800 wheats that I want to move to the done pile, and so you just find stuff, as it is in there. I'm through about 300 so far and the 1956 RPM-001 is soaking in mineral oil but here are three of the others that I've found so far. Who knows what will be in the rest of them.

1954-S RPM-004
1946-S IMM-001 (smashed so zero value)
1952 DDO-001

I see. You seem to be doing pretty good so far with the searching! Let us know, if you find anything else good, from the pile.

Nothing much good in the rest of the pile. Lots of minor RPMs that I ignore on circulated coins, a couple strong enough to go in the tube for sale by the roll including the 1954 D/D/D RPM-001 below, and a 1942 S/S RPM-002 that was actually quite nice and went into my collection.
