Report on nickels searched:

$50.00 -- 20 CWRs and $10.00 worth not in rolls

V nickel - none
Buffalo - none
War Nickel - one -- 1/1945D
Proofs - none
Canadian pre-1982 - one -- 1/1979
2009 - one -- 1/2009P
Other found - one -- 1/1985 Canadian nickel (kept for birth year coin project)

Kept for nickel album - too many to list This was a very good search in that I filled 32 empty spots in my Jefferson nickel album (1938 - 1964) and was able to do upgrades on 13 coins!!! Some of the nickels would probably grade in a high AU to low MS condition. Several of the nickels found were 1938s and 1939s! Trying to fill this nickel album with just coins I find through searches has been exciting. Hopefully I will eventually find all of them; however, the war nickels may give me a bit of a problem as the one I found today was the first one I have found in a very, very, very long time.


Another interesting thing was that I found the War Nickel and the 2009 nickel in the same roll and they were back to back coins. Ironic!


Other stats: One roll was over ten cents (two nickels), One roll was shorted five cents

Overage/shortage total: Over five cents

Enjoy your coin searches, everyone.

Was at the coin shop to pick up a few coins I had the dealer watching out for me and when he gave me my change I got a canadian quarter and nickel. Ask the guy if he had anymore and said yeah some guy brought a whole bag of candian change to him the other day, he had sorted all the pennies, which was my origional purchase. I asked him if he wanted to exchange the rest for FV since I like the canadian coins. One roll quarters (no silver) two roll dimes (one 64 and 67) and 9 rolls of nickels (8 rolls pre 82).

Just curious...Why aren't you keeping all of the pre-82 Canadians? I thought they were the .999 nickel.
