July 7th:  coin roll hunt update.

Here’s what I found in the batch of pennies and box of nickels I brought home over the last couple of days.

Nickels:

23 x USA
1 Indian Rupee 2015 date
1 unknown foreign coin…Look at the photo…can someone identify it?

Canadian
1961, 63, 64, 68
17x nickels dated between 1970 to 1981
26x cupronickel coins dated between 1982 to 2000

Highlights:
3 x 2005 victory nickels
5 x 2017 nickels
1 x 2000P

Pennies:
1938, 42, 2x44, 2x45,50, 51, 52, 2x 1953 NSF, 56, 2x57, 2x58, 60, 4x61, 5x62, 9x63, 6x64, 7x65, 3x66, 8x67, 5x68, 6x69.

USA:  1945, 1946P, 1946D, 50D, 53D, 1956P, 1956D, 2009 Professional life Lincoln cent, 2017P.

Other:
10x UK pennies 1979, 80, 81, 83, 84, 88, 97, 98, 2000, 2005
Barbados 1993
Bahamas 1987
2 Euro cents Greece 2002, Netherlands 2000, Italy 2002

Other:
1975 Canadian cent (red)

I am disappointed with the decreasing number of older Canadian coins out there in circulation.
I used to get 2 rolls worth of nickel bullion nickels out of a box.  Recently, the average is half a roll of nickel bullion…The alloy Recovery Program has effectively killed the coin roll hunting hobby in Canada.

There were also five rolls of pennies that were most likely metal detector finds…I didn’t even bother to search those coins because they were so awful in condition.  The newer zinc pennies were literally rotting away in the rolls!

I ended up returning 48 rolls of zinc pennies to the bank;  I kept all pre 1997 cents and I don’t see the point in keeping the zinc pennies.  There were lots of 2006 dated pennies, but no rare varieties.

Enjoy the pictures,
Dean

Hey Dean ... Do we need to hold an "intervention" for you!?!   :D 

When I can't get paper I'll settle for special SN hunting in polymer from the machines.  Why pennies?

Why pennies?

I still like pennies and plus, if a teller has some to give me, I'll always take them.

I have enough pennies to last the rest of my life and I still use them occasionally when paying in cash, just to see the looks on people's faces when they handle them.

I also leave pennies in random places when walking about like on a park bench in hopes that a kid might pick them up and start collecting coins.

July 16th finds:

Out and about today, I went into a couple of banks.
No paper money, but one Scotiabank did give me $8.50 in rolled pennies.

Here’s what I found:

$3.50 in copper cents pre 1997.  The oldest cent I found was dated 1954 and it was pretty banged up.
9 US cents

Highlights include:
A 1985 pointed 5 cent and a slightly off centre struck 2006 cent

Enjoy the pictures!  I’ve included another normal 2006 cent (right side) along side the off struck cent (left side) for comparison.

Never underestimate the lowly penny!  There are treasures to be found in these bank rolls!

Keep hunting!

August 4th:

A new, cool (digital) find!

I was browsing the NumisBids website (2019 RCNA auction, lot #371) and found the companion note to an out of register cut journey $20 that I found at a bank on December 15th, 2020.

This is my note:  AZW3543048; it's in better condition than the one for auction.

And this is the note posted on the auction site:  AZW3351047

The asking bid of $175 was not met and this note went unsold.  :(

Not earth shattering, but an interesting coincidence.

August 4th finds:

Well, after waiting for what seemed like forever, my regular bank had something for me!
I got to search through the mutilated notes and this is what I kept:

A pair of nicer sequential birds 50s,
A journey $10 with a serial number under 100,000.
A 1975 $50
And a journey $50 with slight misalignment.

Oh, and I also picked up
3 rolls of pennies…

Enjoy!
Dean

Penny roll update:  In the three rolls, there were 11 American cents, 49 copper Canadian cents and the rest were all worthless steel or zinc cents, 1997 or newer.  The oldest Canadian cent I found was dated 1964 with a bit of red on the obverse.

August 8th finds:

I went to one of my regular banks and for the first time in a long time, they had paper money for me!

I picked the following notes out of the mutilated pile today:

Five birds $2s
Three journey $20s
Three birds $10s
And one journey $10.

I turned down a lot of journey $20s and $50s and they didn’t look like anything special.  I even turned down three 1975 $100s, but they too were circulated and not worth a premium.

Enjoy!

Dean

Thanks for sharing Dean, neat finds. For me the treasure hunting aspects of more modern issues is a lot of the fun I have in collecting.
