Hey hcbtt, there's a separate thread I started with scans of the 1883 liberty head if you wanna see pics. The thread title is "awesome find last night"; it's right here in the nickel sorting forum.

Newbie to nickel sorting, sorted my first 25 rolls and came across 10 war nickels and 8 others between 1939 and 1958. Is this normal or just beginners luck?

Mike.. I would say it is beginner's luck. Go back to where you got those rolls and get a bunch more rolls.

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

Where did you buy them from? I might have sorted them since I supply several US vendors.

3 .999 Cdn.
2 more buffalos, a '13 variety II, and a '17.
1 Liberty.
A '00 proof.
2 pennies.

Decided to try some Nickels.... 3 boxes

I don't plan on hoarding these, but I went into it with a plan... To Save all nickels pre 1960.

Mainly for future Num value (long time down the road)and silver...

Anyways I ended up with 7 war nickels and 32 pre 60's with a 39 being my oldest...

Would these sorts %'s be standard?

I searched a $100 box of nckeles a year ago and found nothing of intrest. However, this weekend I got $10 in nickels sorted them and bought another $10. I found about 15 pre-1964, one 1945 war nickel, and a 1939! Not bad?

My first goal is to fill up my nickel books.(that should take a few dollars worth of Nickels to do) Then I am looking for war nickels and buffalos exclusively.

Ove the years I have found 5 buffalo nickels in change I have gotten, but none since I have started to seach rolls.

I think I will give up roll searching when I find either and Indian head penny or a pre-buffallo nickel.
