Made a find in Change today

Post by sgt2 » Tue, 11 Mar 2008 23:14:10



I had to return something to Ingles yesterday. Got back four dollar
and ninety-four cents in change. I got back to car and was looking
through my change. I had notice I got back an old nickel, and when I
finally got to it. It was a 1939 P Jefferson Nickel. I know not the
greatest find and I already have a few of them already, but the best
find I've made since I found a 1937 wheat back penny a little over a
year ago. The nickel was kind of weak on the back, but the front had
to be vg to a weak fine condition. I wonder if some one spent it out
of there collection, or it has been in circulation all these years?
Well happy collecting to all.

Well I haven't been finding so much the last couple years, but I use
find alot of silver coins in change. I have not found any in the last
2 years. The last silver coin I found in change was 1957 Dime. It was
pretty warn. But still neat all the same. I've also found a few
quarters over the years. Yet I haven't found one of them in about 4
years. Maybe one day I'll find a silver Half Dollar in a roll. Well
having fun collecting and hunting for coins.

Gary: excellent find.

I found both a 1938 and 1939 in a pack of 5 nickel rolls I picked up
at the
bank last week.  Both were in nice condition, considering their age.

I posted a Excel graph of the date/MM spread of them to my blog, as
well
as the dime and half rolls.

Last box of halves I got from the bank ($500), had (20) 40% halves, and
one VF 1946-P Walking Liberty Half.  That's two walkers I've found in
circulation now, having gone through maybe $10K - $15K worth of halves.

Went back this morning and asked the ladies for 2 more boxes just like
that one.  70 bucks worth of silver, give or take, isn't bad for 2 hours
of going through coins & quality time with my 3 year old.  (he weighs
the rolls, puts aside the heavy ones, and unwraps them, as I look for
die cracks, clash marks, missing FG's, etc.

You check for errors, or just silver?  Lots of HORRIBLY bad die clash
"repairs" to be found, especially in the 90's.  I'm saving 'em, thinking
of sorting and characterizing them.  Nobody seems to have done that,
unless I'm mistaken?

To the guy who said he found a proof like penny. Someone probably
broke it out of a proof set or out something else to pay for something.

I did, for a while, especially after I saw a NN ad from someone
selling 1998
Kennedy die cracks for $3.50.  I thought I would low-ball them, and
tried
selling some at $2: no takers, so I put them back into my rolls-to-
bills-to-rolls
rotation... I hope whoever finds them enjoys them.
