I decided to start coin roll hunting when I heard about the West Point quarters being released into circulation this year. I've searched about $1000 of quarters in the last month or so, but sadly no W's. I have, however found a decent number of error coins and varieties. I don't think many are worth a ton of money, but I've enjoyed finding them all the same. Just joined this community and wanted to share some of my finds!

Probably my favorite find so far, 2015 Homestead DDR-104 with doubling on the pump and the window to the above-left of the pump

DDR-020 Homestead with doubling in window to the above-right of pump.

2007 WY DDR with doubling on the saddle horn.

1996 P with significant die abrasion giving George a septum piercing.

2005 KS "In God We Rust"

George with a chin wart (die chip)

1999 Delaware "Spitting Horse" die crack

2007 AZ "Extra Leaf" die chip partially covering initials of designer

Significant cud on 2005 WV at about 4 o'clock position

Cud on 2006 CO at approximately 9 o'clock position

Small die chip on right wing of eagle

Edit: Almost forgot about this one. Early-stage "leaky bucket" die chip on 2015 Homestead with possible very faint doubling along bottom edge of third window from the bottom on the right (not sure about the doubling).

E-gad that's a bunch of junky-funky quarters. Some good finds for all your work. I believe the eagle-wing chip doesn't qualify as a CUD, though, as it does not involve the rim. Am I right?

Keep looking!
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other ˘5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.

Thanks, Biedercoins! I'm still pretty new to this and learning the terminology. Hopefully I'll find enough to do another post soon (and some W's)!

Awesome finds! The cud's are my favorite. The "small cud" on the right wing of the eagle and the chin wart are die chips. A Cud has to break with the rim, usually extending out from the rim. A "rim cud" is confined to only the rim, and does not extend out. So the two Colorado die breaks are actually just regular cud's, which IMOHO is better than a rim cud. I hope this all makes sense! Let me know if I can better explain any of this. As for the W's keep looking! I bought 14 rolls and found 19 Lowell W's in them. Awesome finds and happy hunting!


Here is an example of a rim cud-
"Time is the coin of life. Only you can determine how it will be spent" -Carl Sandburg

Some of my best finds:
1867 Indian cent RPD Snow-1
1963 25˘ Type B reverse
1964 LMC Tapered Planchet
1942 LWC DDO FS-104

Yeah, I thought it was pretty cool getting one just before the chip fully detached from the die.
