    In 2014 I found two 1858 FE cents in one month. I found an 1865 IHC in the reject slot of a coin machine just last year. Over the past decade I have found three dozen IHC cents from 1873-1908 in roll searches.

    Those are still great finds...the oldest Lincoln I have found is a 1910. I have yet to find a 1909.
    I think I have only found 2 or 3 Indians in 45+ years of looking, and one of them was dateless and corroded (looked like a dug coin.)

    As to @SaorAlba...wow is all I can say. I will have to be kept alive for several more lifetimes cryogenic-ally (sp.?) in order to equal that! And a Flying Eagle..make that 2....amazing!

    Have you trained them to put aside "oddities"?
    Although I guess the staff turnover must be fairly high....and unless a coin is "old" or very different-looking, most people don't know what guys like you and me are even looking for.

    I didn't take a photo at the time, but I found one of the old original Hobo nickels in a roll of junk mixed date buffs.
    I traded it at a FUN show towards a 26D buff in XF that I needed for my set.

    Latest, and greatest, would be this I guess. Found this while searching Kennedy Half rolls. The date is two years before my Dad was born, and he put coins like this in his collection that were found out of circulation. Dad told me when he passed on his collection; that, he was more focused on filling holes in his book than condition of coin...when I found this one searching rolls I thought about what Dad found, and wish I could of whispered in his ear, back in the day........, "it's about condition baby."

    I've got a roll of quarters in one of those clear plastic rolls so you can see the edges of all the coins...one in the center has no reeding. I haven't opened it yet, but it's either a blank planchet, or a slug.

    MaineJimMaineJim Posts: 740 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Open that sucker up! I can think of a few other things it might be. An old coin that has worn off the reeding perhaps? Maybe a foreign coin?

    I have Coin Roll Hunted for quite a while and had some great finds, but I doubt I will ever top this find from a few years back. As crazy as it sounds I once stopped in a local bank during my lunch break and asked for halves. I got about $300 which was all they had in the vault. I got to my car and opened the first roll that had the oldest looking roll, skunk and figured that was what was coming but I opened up the next one and it was solid silver and all Walkers. This continued for every roll with mostly all Walkers and Franklins with a few Kennedys thrown in. I think in the end there were 29 rolls of 90% silver along with a couple rolls of 40%. Just an amazing find that day.

    It wasn't in a roll............but in a jar of Cents given to me by my spouse's uncle. It was an AU-58 1971-P DDO Lincoln (Class VI, Distorted Hub Doubled Cent).

    I coudn't believe my eyes.

    Mainejim: That is fantastic! You need to play the Loto.

    No way can beat that.

    I did get a $20 roll of half's at a local bank few years back. It was a solid roll 1959D of Gem Franklins. Sent in a handful of them and came back MS65 and MS65 FBL.

    Finally opened that roll of quarters in the clear plastic roll...the quarter in the center without reeding was indeed a blank planchet! The quarters were all from 2003. So now I wonder, how much is a blank planchet worth? The roll of quarters were in superb condition, uncirculated, full of luster, the blank planchet had also been uncirculated but had some light scratches on it like it had somehow gotten stuck somewhere in a minting machine. At any rate, it's pretty cool.

    That is better than a slug - post a photo if you get a chance. You won't get rich off it but it is a nice find. I'd just put it in a 2x2 and add it to the collection. I have a 3-ring binder full of all my strange CRH finds including the odd foreign coin. Makes it more interesting than just searching for silver.

    Cool.

    I've lived in my neighborhood for 22 years and Walgreen always lets me go through their cash register ...

    I had this same privilege for a couple of years when a friend from our local darts league managed a Speedway gas station here in the neighborhood. I always got to look through the three automatic change machines for silver whenever I stopped in. After a while he started doing it for me. Was able to get quite a few silver dimes from this source, I'm guessing two rolls or more in that time. And perhaps around ten silver quarters, including a 1930 SLQ. Occasionally a 40% Kennedy would turn up and I also scored two freshly spent proof Franklin halves. Nice to have a little setup like this!

    I take it back. I'm cashing in rolls of coins that are basically face. (I just dumped $200 worth of bicentennial quarters and halves into a coinstar...) I opened a roll of bicentennial quarters and found this:

    Yeah, it's corroded, damaged and worth a cent, but it's still more intersting than a dime in a roll of cents... :)
