Nice. Where you get the rolls?
Just my local bank that I bank with that has a Coin counter so I can return the rest.
Bummer though they just got new machines that spit the foreign and assorted token etc out in a tray people can see and pick up
more easily, old machines had magnetic strip nobody used to check...:totally steamed:

Watch the obituaries. First thing is the next of kin goes in and grabs the money to deposit in a bank. That usually includes grandma's or grandpa's old change jar that is also brought to the bank too since most people don't have the knowledge or patience to go through the jars. Hence, they wind up in the rolls from that local branch if they don't send them out to a central coin processing site.

I educated a Korean store owner in town about pre 65 coins. He holds them then sells them to me. It's a trivial amount, but I've found that there is a bit of a spike around the first week from when school lets out in the summer. I even got a Piece Dollar a few years ago.

Think that's what my sister did when my parents passed, I had collected some silver coins Rolls of mercury/Roosevelt dimes assorted stuff
in my youth then joined the military and left them with my parents through the years went to see my sister about a year ago she gave me what
she had left a stained silver certificate and a few minor items. oh well C'est la vie

Sounds like a lot of work. I search halves. If I don't find anything, all that is lost is time.

Don't know why my camera brings out the extra color can't even see that orange in the 22 or the black smudges in the 25
What kind of camera? You shooting inside? Florescent light? Incandescent? LED?
