I used to do a lot of roll hunting a lifetime ago. Back before my wife was even in the picture; when I was working a minimum wage job in retail and spending 2 hours of my day off to find a silver half dollar seemed like a pretty sweet deal. I had fun, but ultimately had very little to show for all those hours of work. I stopped seriously roll hunting in about 2011.

Long story short, today I found myself near my bank today during business hours, so I figured, Why not? I stopped in, asked for "anything unusual" to which the teller said she had $140 worth of half dollars. I had $50 with me, so I took give rolls. To my surprise, two of them had a total of four 40% and one 90%. I hurried home and explained to my wife that I needed to go back out and get the rest. She rolled her eyes that I was using so much time and gas for a couple bucks' worth of silver. But I went back and bought them all. None of them were from the same customer who wrapped up silver the first time, so I figured I had just wasted my time. But then I noticed that one of the rolls looked older and had someone's name written on it.

That one roll singularly trumped my entire 4-year roll hunting career:





I hurried home to show the wife. She of course said "What are those, foreign coins?"

Oh well.

That's pretty awesome! I think most roll hunters do it just for that one day, when luck shine's on us also.
We all strike out a lot but when it hits, it hits.
Congrats on your finds!

Great score,what is that something like $160 in silver? Are you going to check for varieties? Might be worth more than just silver value.

You were at the right place at the right time. I would look up that persons name that was on that roll . More than likely their from the same town as you . You can tell him/her that you pick up one of their rolls at so and so bank ;DO you have anymore to cash in ? What do you have to loose .
