So I went back to that same bank early this morning. The same teller was there, but she didn't have any odd looking quarter or cent rolls... I was a little disappointed... Since I was there, I decided to grab $50 of dimes (5 CWR and 5 MWR) along with $50 in nickels from a different teller.

Well, I open the first CWR and boom... take a look!


Yes, my first EVER Barber dime find - a 1908-D, and also my first Canadian silver dime (1954) found since starting this back up almost five years ago...

Two rolls later, more paydirt..


A 1942 Mercury dime!

I bought 10 CWR at another branch of the same bank and also found a 1953-S Roosie... So, I kind of hit for the "Silver Dime Cycle" today!

So I decided to make another trip out CRH today... and I hit my usual banks, including the one where I had my dime bonanza last month. The teller I had this time was a different one than last time. I asked her for $50 each in nickels and dimes. I also asked her if she had any halves - she said she didn't, but she had a single Ike dollar, which I took... then the teller I had the last time comes over and tells her she has $250 in halves and asked me if I wanted them... after a slight hesitation I told her I would take all of them...

As the teller started giving me my coins, the nickels looked like normal old CWR, but when she got the dimes, I noticed they looked just like the last batch where I found the full roll of silver. She had $215 in dimes, so told her I would take ALL OF THEM!


As you can see, the rolls ALL looked old style - 28 MWR and 15 CWR. I actually had my scale with me, so when I got to my car, I started weighing the rolls... well, 8 of them weighed 122 grams or more, with 7 weighing 125 grams or more! By the looks of things, I had just purchased no less than 399 silver dimes for free!



So I got home and opened all of the silver rolls (the 8 in the lower right of the above photo). Upon closer inspection, four of the rolls I thought were CWR were actually old style BofA MWR rolls with bank folding on both ends - three of the them were fresh BU rolls of 1964-Ds... Of the other five rolls, one had 3 Mercuries, and three had 2 Mercuries each. The other roll (which was missing a coin) had no Mercs, but, unlike the other rolls, it also had no coin dated after 1963 - yes, that roll had been sitting for 58 years!


As for the other rolls, there was no coin dated after 1980 - none of the MWR had any silver, but lots of older BU coins which I am saving... one of the other seven CWR (1 turned out to be an old style BofA MWR) had a single 1964-D to give me an even 400 silver dimes!

Here's a breakdown of the dates... a few semi-key ones (1949, 1949-D, 1958) were amongst them, along with 5 hole fillers (1949, 1949-D, 1951, 1952, 1953) for my CRH/Coinstar Roosevelt dimes finds folder.

Mercs: 1935, 1940, 1941-S, 1943, 1944, 1944-D, 1944-S, 1945, 1945-S
Roosies: 1946 (2), 1947, 1947-D (2), 1947-S (3), 1948-D, 1949, 1949-D, 1951 (2), 1951-D, 1951-S (3), 1952, 1952-D (3), 1952-S (5), 1953, 1953-D (3), 1953-S (3), 1954, 1954-D (9), 1954-S, 1956, 1956-D (11), 1957 (2), 1957-D (18), 1958, 1958-D (13), 1959 (3), 1959-D (14), 1960-D (10), 1961 (2), 1961-D (14), 1962-D (26), 1963-D (36), 1964, 1964-D (195).





Needless to say, I'm feeling some happy shock and joy at the moment... this is my best CRH find EVER! Oh, and incidentally, also found five 40% halves in that $250 batch (see post in halves thread
http://goccf.com/t/22710&whichpage=1728#3360413), so I ended up scoring 405 silver coins from one branch of my bank today!

Seems like nothing, but we all know the 2009 coins can be tough!
