Don't you just love it when you open up a fresh box of halves and your experienced eye picks out one on one of the top end rolls that has the color of a 40%er? So the first roll had a 40%er.. the third roll had a 90% Kennedy. I was starting to have dillusions of hitting for the cycle. Like that's gonna happen. Well I got enough solid silver bands.. but they all had the wrong pic on them.. no Franklins or Walkers.
So from this $500 box of BWR Halves I got:
3 90% Silver Kennedies - 1964-D
3 40% Silver Kennedies - 1966, 1967, 1968-D
1 2007-D
1 2006-P.. the official Real Cent Half. It had the letters R C punched into it.. The Holy Grail!

27 Rolls CWR Quarters
Skunk - short 96 cents.. had 4 pennies instead of quarters

3 rolls CWR dimes
1 Silver Roosie - 1964-D

3 rolls CWR nickels
1 Silver WN - 1945-S

If your percentages are low.. just sort more. If your percentages are high.. just sort more.

Now selling Copper pennies. 1.6x plus shipping. Limited amounts available.

1 - 1949 Ben Franklin
3 - 1964 Kennedys
27- 40% Kennedys
1 - 1973S (non silver?)
1 - 1989S (non silver?)
1 - 1974D slightly double-die obverse

1 - 10 peso, Mexico
1 - 20 cent?, Australia

aaOOOO-GAH!! Good bag! Want more!



SILVER Halves

1964 and before - 90%
1965-1970 - 40%
1971-1974 - All Clads
1976 - Clads and 40%ers (Both proofs and circulation strikes can be 40% SILVERs and can be Clads)
1977 - 1991 - All Clads
1992 to date - circulation strikes are ALL Clads; proofs are Clads and 90% SILVERS (the SILVERs are very hard to find in the wild)



Thanks for the update.

1976... "Both proofs and circulation strikes can be 40% SILVERS and can be Clads" Okay, how do you tell them apart? Is it the "s" mint mark? I have $107.00 of 1976D & $23.00 of 1976. Some look a little silverish, but I need to know for sure. I am now too tone deaf to listen for the silver "chink".

Edit: Okay, I looked it up on Red Book. RB says the "S" mint mark can be 40% SILVER or clad. So, I am looking for "S" mint marks only on 1976 SILVER, right? I still need a reliable method to tell 40%'ers from clad on 1976S.

Help me out, Country.



Correct - Only the 1976-S halves CAN be 40%ers.

I have found a few 40%er 1976-S circulation strikes, but no proofs myself. So, they are scarce, but you can find them.

You can use the ring test to discriminate, but you can also tell them apart by looking at the SILVER patina. Look at the SILVER gloss surface field of a typical 40%er and compare that with the grey metallic shine of a clad; they are quite different.

Unless you tell me otherwise, I am going to assume that each bag was $1000 worth of dimes. Also, I am going to assume that you found 3 SILVER Roosies. For future posts, please indicate the face value of the coins you search and the kinds of coins you find. Thanks...

2010 dimes are common now that the mint has made 262 million - 2010-D dimes and 324 million - 2010-P dimes as of July. Last year the mint only produced 49.5 million - 2009-D dimes and 96.5 million 2009-P dimes; these are the ones to save.
