Picked up two rolls from a local bank. These were machine-wrapped rolls with one end opened and folded over. So, I expected they had been searched and I would find nothing. I was surprised to find four sharp BU 2017-D coins which are the latest-dated NIFC coins I've seen so far. Not silver, but not quite a complete loss either. Good enough to keep the searching itch alive!

Went to San Diego and took the opportunity to stop at several banks. My previous record for latest-date NIFC finds was broken when two 2018-D coins popped out.



Also found one 90%. You can never have too many 1964-Ds!



Then, there was this corroded 1968-D. The 80%Ag/20%Cu outer layers are quite prone to developing that green corrosion. The green tint indicates the "rust" comes from the copper component of the alloy.



These corroded pieces have no numismatic value so I use hot white vinegar to dissolve the copper corrosion products. This treatment usually improves the appearance without harming the silver content.



So, I picked up a few keepers. I'll take it!

Jaobler, Great finds! I also search halves when I am vacationing. It is fun, and I find it more productive than searching locally. Enjoy!

I check for halves at various banks a couple times per month on average. Most attempts don't produce any keepers and I don't bother to report those.

Went to several banks yesterday and found one $10 roll at a Wells Fargo on the other side of town. Scored 5 90% and 2 40%. Too bad I can't achieve a 7 out of 20 keeper ratio on a regular basis!
