Joey baby, am I doing this right? πŸ˜†
@joeykoins
Hoping for a nice Christmas present from these customers wrapped rolls. I'll update the thread when I go through them...

    If you got mine they are all near uncirculated statehoods.

    Well, I've got ten rolls, so my expectations are not high. But I'd be very happy with a W quarter or a pre-1965 Washie.
    Haven't roll searched in ages, so I'm kind of excited.

    Got a Mexican coin in my last roll. Evidently about equal to a nickel but same size as our quarter.

    She wants them for a poker game she's playing tomorrow night. But when I find 10 rolls of 90%, what's she gonna do? πŸ˜†

    Play junk silver poker. It’s fun and the stakes are much higher. Just don’t let the opponent slip in any modern junk.

    Go with her and search the other players coins before they start playing!! πŸ˜‚ 🀣

    For sure, Joey. I live dangerously, though. I drive around all the time with a regular coffee cup in my hands.
    One time, I astonished my fellow passengers by hitting a pothole and retaining the entirety of my beverage! Coffee flying everywhere, but my hand moved methodically, almost in slow motion as the Java rained down drop by drop into my waiting cup.
    It was like the Matrix in my car that day. πŸ˜†

    I've got 300 rolls of unsearched rolls my son's mother-in-law rolled out of her penny pickle jar. Took her 40 years to fill it out of change. I look forward to it and dread it at the same time. Next snow, I guess I'll pull them out. Haven't roll searched this large a group of rolls in years. I did so many quarter rolls in the last couple of years and found 3 w's. Made me not do it anymore. lol

    I'm five rolls in, and all I have to show for my effort is dirty fingers.

    Unfortunately they are customer wrapped rolls....odds are not in your favor for a W or silver

    Good luck, probably no silver, but could be a W. Most non-collectors are totally unaware of the W quarters. Cheers, RickO

    Speaking of wives. I need to start a thread for... "Spouses Or Significant Others Of Coin Collectors........"

    ......Within The Sound Of My Voice. Would love to hear what they have to say. Tell us your experience of living with a coin collector.

    Mine made fun of me because I was wearing white gloves while searching new coin rolls for W quarters back in 2019...that is until I found and submitted my 1st PCGS First Discovery W quarter and sold it for thousands of dollars weeks later.πŸ˜‰

    Best move I made was taking her away from the bitter cold by having her join me at the FUN show in Orlando. To be clear ..she never went to the show but boy did we have fun the rest of the time!😎
