I have gone through everything (except the foreign) and here are the results. These totals do not include the coins that I pulled out to fill holes in the albums he already started.

Pennies--When I started I estimated 5,000. There 5,098 wheat pennies. He also had about 500 or so that I still have to go through that are of a more recent vintage. Several rolls of what looks like almost uncirculated 1964 and a bunch of '68

1909-2, .04%. (1 each of 1909 and 1909 VDB)
1910's-476, 9.34%. Most was 125 '17D
1920's-473, 9.28% Most 103 1920.
1930's-341, 6.69%. Most 56 1930.
1940's-1,703, 33.41%. Most 243 1944.
1950's-2,103, 41.25%. Most 264 1957D.
And one Indian Head-1883 I think.

Nickels--Nothing too exciting here. Total of 315
Liberty Head-3, 1905, 1906 & 1912
Buffalo-5, all unknown years
Jefferson-307
1930's-28, 8.89%. 1 '38D & 27 '39
1940's-53, 16.83%. Most 11 1943P.
1950's-98, 31.11%. Most 41 1954S.
1960's-119, 37.78%. Most 44 1964D
1970's-9, 2.86%. All are 1970S.

I'll take a brief intermission so this post isn't just one giant wall of text.

Dimes--I estimated 2,000 at the beginning. My guess wasn't as close as it was with the pennies. There was only 1,119. Percents are of the total number of dimes not each type

Mercury-386
1910's-1, .09%. 1 1919
1920's-2, .18%. 1 each of 1923 & 1929D.

1940's-340, 30.38%. Most 77 1947

Roosevelt-733
1940's-73, 6.52%. Most 35 1946
1950's-232, 20.73%. Most 36 1957
1960's-428, 38.25%. Most 140 1964


Quarters--269
Barber-1, .37%. 1908D
Standing-3, 1.12%. All have no year
Washington-265
1930's-3, 1.12%. 1 each of '36, '37 and '39.
1940's-73, 27.14%. Most 10 1943.
1950's-61, 22.68%. Most 7 1957D.
1960's-128 47.58%. Most 65 1964.

Like hockey, time for the second intermission.

In about a month I sorted 7,026 coins. I want to thank all y'all for your advice and encouragement as I was undertaking this process.

I have decided to keep the folders that he started and finish them up if I can. I will continue to save up the coins that came after the last that he saved. The rest of the stuff I'm going to sell and split the proceeds with my mother.

I am going to finish albums of:
Indian head and Lincoln pennies, Jefferson nickels, Washington quarters, and Standing, Franklin and Kennedy halves. The dollars while nice to look at I have too much catching up to do there so I won't be tackling those. I'm going to try the Indian Heads because they don't look like they are a several thousand dollar investment to find those in lower grades.

So in conclusion, I hope you are all happy, I'm OF YOU NOW! I have caught myself looking at the change I get back when I buy stuff!

I have already bought three Dansco albums and I am buying Littleton folders to put the newer stuff in until they get back up and running and I can buy the albums.

Thanks again for all your help!

If your dad "wasn't a collector" I don't know what that makes me!

I'm just glad that you're not selling them to melt. I hate seeing the lost history.

Forced into the hobby. Great story. Of course, most of us would love to sort through thousands of surprise coins every month.
I suppose you could consider keeping just one example of each of the dollar coins since you aren't planning on collecting more of those.
Overall, the sale should bring you nice sum. Have you considered how you will break up the lots to maximize your $$? I'm sure there are folks on the site that can advise you on what sells better (bulk lot, broken up into certain groupings, mini-sets, etc.).

Love the coin collecting spanning the generations! Seems to be such a great gift to pass down to your children. Definitely a motivation for me and my new found interest in coins :)
