The problem for me needles, is that I was 20 years old in 1964. So coin roll hunting is kind of a not-what-it-used-to-be type of deal for me. I grabbed 'em in the early years (up to the early 70s) whenever I saw or heard them. Fun days, those... <sniff>
My dad was born 1965 and I was negative 25. I say the same about coin roll hunting then. Even though it's dried up compared to then fact of the matter is I'm still pulling silver at face value in 2018. Not about to stop either.
I just ordered Koin tubes for dimes, nickels and half dollars Five of each using my ebay bucks for $1.xx off lol. Got it for like $7 on ebay.
. I will be going through at least one box of each denomination a week. I'll keep you guys updated on my finds.
I just can't do pennies. Dimes are small enough as is and I'm not after errors or key dates. Just stacking silver. Silver also takes up a lot of space. I don't have the space to store pennies in the pounds.
I got my coin tubes today and stopped at the bank for some coin. Got a box of dimes and 7 rolls of half dollars. I already opened the half's. I got 6 more Kennedy 40%s I already mixed up the years with my last ones and with only 5 years I can't tell which are the ones I got today. 4 short of a tube of 40%s. Pretty happy. All the junk silver I own was bought at face value coin roll hunting. Helps makes up for the dips when I stack.
I do have another two boxes of half dollars and box of dimes on order.
Went to the bank again today since I had the day off again and had some banks holding small amounts of half dollars. Went to pick them up and stopped at another bank I'm with and they had some rolls and loose ones. I saw some of the loose ones were silver. As I'm doing this transaction a elderly man is turning in $1,500 in half dollars. I was going to take them but spoke to him and he said it was all cherry picked for silver. So i took the loose ones they had and the rolls prior to what he turned in.
Ended up with 28 40% kennedy half dollars. In pic is my old tube missing 4 from a full roll as stated in my last post. I still haven't pulled a 1970 or any 90% pre 1965. I do have another two boxes on order still. Tomorrow a box of halfs and dimes and Tuesday another box of halfs.
