search rolls for silver, hit up your local coin shop (typically shops will have large stashes of low grade 50's and 60's coins that can be scored for melt value. Not sure the condition of coins youre looking for, but junk silver can be found for very reasonable prices that wont break the bank. Ebay could also yield some good opportunities.

Agree, your LCS is the best place to start.

I still find some 50's and 60's stuff in the wild but it's pretty hit or miss.

Cent and nickel rolls from banks would be where I would start.

You won't find many of the other coins in rolls.

In the last ten years I've found well over 1,000 silvers from rolls. Couple years back, I dumped at least one thousand Jefferson nickels dated between 1946-1958. The oldest silver found was an 1894 Barber half dollar, in a roll.

Roll hunting is your best bet for finding old coins at face value. You can get rolls of coin from your Credit Union, or even the local Walmart (I found my first silver 1970 D Kennedy there, at a tiny bank, the only half they had).

Interesting. I see you've been roll hunting since 1977. I started around 1983 and stopped around 2000. I just was not finding much of anything when I stopped.

I live in a rural area. At one time I had a bank in a small farm town about 50 miles away that would give up lots of goodies, but I think I got them all. My theory is that the change from that bank just circulates around and around in the same community.


So you are averaging over 100 silver a year. How many rolls are you searching in a year?

Coin shows seem to work for me when buying in quantity. Better than average pricing and you get to see what your buying before hand. Dealers tend to do this to reduce their inventories. And that's a win for both of us.

@Joe coin - much more than 100 silvers per year. Over one thousand in a six year span. Searched about $150k.

It's all bout volume. Time, not so much. I could search and re-wrap a roll in under 10 seconds. Volume and seed money is the key.
