Serious Coin Roll Hunting

I thought after retiring I was gonna lose my mind especially after part of that retirement was after 50 years of rock drumming. Nope! Now that I started coin roll hunting daily and becoming a serious collector again, I have no time to lose my mind - maybe my eyesight!! Gonna try and catch up with some posts to see what everyone else has been up to.

    I searched approximately 200,000'$ In Kennedy halves. Found lots of errors and a fair amount of silver. It took up a lot of time, especially when it came to dumping. Some women at the banks indump were not happy campers.mthe nice ones got pizzas and candy for the trouble. It took approximately 2 years for me to do that amount. Eye strain was prevalent. Lots of big "markers" out there. I marked five hundred and only seen one coin on one occasion. I had fun.....maybe when I retire.
    I now enjoy bill searching.

    Welcome. I searched nickels until 1977 and have searched quarters since about 1966 and collected them since '72. It's always been a blast.

    I search all denominations enough to keep up with them.

    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome. I do not roll hunt anymore, but back in the day ( 1961-1964) I would get a bag of coins each Wednesday from my bank. Sure was fun!

    Welcome. Coin hunt is always fun and safe during raining /snowing day. ;)

    If you wanna talk serious coin roll hunting, I'm down. Part of the $1,000,000 searched club. :)

    Welcome to the forum. Roll hunting is what rekindled my interest too.

    It's surely a lot different than when I initially started in 1966. Back then we would get loose bags of nickels and pennies from the bank which were all parking meter money. The amount of wheats and Indian heads were insane as were the war nickels, buffaloes, and the occasionally V nickel. Semi and key dates were still quite common to find. Now it's mainly errors I look for more than the wheats.

    Thanks, Mannie, but after looking at as many coins as I do in a week, my eyes go on strike after about the second box!

    It wasn't all that glamorous, @ms70 I started in 1966, played to '75 and moved to Arizona where my coin collecting and music took a standby as I raised a family and ran a couple businesses. The only real music I was involved with in Arizona (25 years there) was some studio work for Chuck Mangione and I filled for a couple of songs on a collective CD produced locally in Phoenix. After that I basically just did some sit ins now and then and didn't get back into it professionally until 2006, some 7 years after moving back to my little town in Western NY.

    That's probably when I'm really gonna hit it hard, during the winter months!

    Thanks, @cladking! It can be enjoyable and disappointing at the same time. It's all in how ya look at it and what you expect to get from it.
