9/7/2014: Small Search Yields Silver!

Since it's the kickoff of football season today (see what I did there?), I made a quick stop at my local bank to pick up some coins while I watched the games. On a Sunday! Yes, I just happen to live in a neighborhood with a large population that require banks to be open on Sundays for religious reasons. Having an extra day to get coins is always nice! But, we digress...

I originally wanted to get a box, but the bank only had $50 that they could spare. No problem! I took them and searched them up and found a sweet looking 1960 silver dime!

A couple of days ago I was searching through some cent rolls and came across this guy between the wheat cents that I kept. I'm not sure if it's an error or post mint damage, but then again I only claim to be a coin roll hunter, not a coin expert! That's what social networks are for. Leave your comments below!

8/31/2014: Still hitting the Silver!

As you have probably noticed, I haven't been doing  as great of a job of keeping this blog updated in the past few months. I haven't really been coin roll hunting very much in 2014 so the finds haven't really been blog-worthy.  We're also nowhere near my previous goals of searching >$30,000 a year in coins and figured that the readers wouldn't be interested in my tiny $150 a week searches that I've been doing. That's Small Game Coin Roll Hunting. This is Big Game Coin Roll Hunting and those small searches belong on someone else's blog!

But even searching a few rolls a week can yield some pretty cool finds, especially my favorites: silver dimes!  I've found quite a few silver mercury dimes recently, but here are my most recent Roosevelt silver dime finds that I pulled from some customer-wrapped rolls.

As of this post, the value of a silver dime is a lowly $1.40.

1/16/2014: Laundromat Find!

This really isn't a coin roll hunting find, but when I was doing my laundry at the local laundromat, a shiny little fellow popped out of the quarter change machine. This 1964 silver quarter paid for my laundry!
