Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

While this looks huge under a microscope, it is probably the width of the tip of toothpick.

Thanks all!

SamCo, I get asked this a lot, and it's tough to answer without sounding evasive. I get my coins from pretty much every source you might think of: ebay, LCS, friends or family find a bag at a local auction or estate sale, coin shows, etc. But in the end, there are always a lot of coins for sale and it is one's skill at knowing which coins to buy. For example, I don't pull coins for grade from the BU rolls I search, so I'm a pretty good person to buy rolls from if you're looking for higher grade but a terrible person to buy from if you're looking for erros or varieties. Knowing where the coins came from makes all the difference in finding lots of what you're after or nearly nothing of interest. I get some dud lots at times, as it's not a perfect system, but most of what I get in hasn't been searched so I tend to find a lot.

Good find, and great answer on source of coins. How many a week do you look through would be another good question for beginners to know.

Hmmmm, how many per week actually is a good question. Might be easier to think about is as per day though. I try to spend an hour a day searching Lincoln cents. It varies, but I do try to average about that. Circulated wheat bags are fast, and pretty easy to run through a little over 500 of those in an hour. Note that I'm not looking for minor RPMs or pulling minor laminations or anything like that from those, just bigger stuff or in some cases more rare things. I generally only look for RPMs on uncirculated coins. And as for those rolls, they take longer. For BU rolls I lay them all out so that if I find something on one of them I can reasonably quickly look at the rest of them for the same thing, which often happens with rolls. So while it still doesn't take very long to do the actual searching, there is time taken to set them out and put them back without touching surfaces and all those things you have to do with UNC coins to keep them nice. Even so, I still look to get through at least six BU rolls on the days when I'm doing those. So 300-500 coins a day is pretty standard, spending about an hour doing it. Which I guess works out to 2000-3500 coins a week. I currently have roughly 10000 circulated coins and 35 BU rolls sitting on the floor beside my desk, so I'm good for a while.
