1 box yielded:

209 Ni (10.45%)

Amazing. Last box was 211 (10.55%) and this time it's 209 (10.45%) Very similar numbers.

And:
10 U.S., 1 rabbit and 1x42 in good shape.

Keep the Ni coming. Nickel is up 51% this year. It's got nowhere to go but up.

I was going to stop sorting over the holidays, but I started suffering from withdrawal symptoms so I picked up a small batch (10 rolls of Nickels and 10 rolls of pennies) when I was cashing a cheque today.

10 rolls of Nickels yielded
- 32 x Ni (8%)
- 1 x 1958 Elizabeth
- 1 x multisided Cuban coin, I am seeing a lot of those lately.
- 10 x Americans (post 1963)

The pennies sorting turned to be really good (nothing after 1987) and got 98% copper.
I nearly got a 100% yield, if it wasn't for 10 post 1982 Zincolns

1945V, I haven't done any pennies at all. I'll try a box.

Like you, I wanted to stop for the holidays, but today I could not resist. I grabbed a box as I was passing a bank. I took a quick quick look at the top coins on 5 of the rolls and I think it's going to be a good one.

Copper box tomorrow... hehe cool.

Wolverine... God bless America! I love your country. Also, when I search any box, nickels, dimes, quarters, I get all kinds of U.S. coinage, giving me an instant profit on the exchange rate. Not to mention, I love American coinage, just for the styles. It's great stuff!

Good job on the 98% copper box 1945V,sure makes hand sorting go alot quicker.

I had a box once that had 2 non copper cents in it.

I was going to stop sorting over the holidays as well but they put the discount Ni and Cu stores next to the Christmas present stores.

30 rolls of Canadian nickels

286 Ni (23.8% Ni) including one 1967 Centennial rabbit design

(This gave me my highest ever number of Ni coins for a single roll (27) and my highest ever number of Ni coins for a block of ten rolls (150)).
