Hello, Friends!

1 box yielded:

224 Ni (11.2%)

And:
22 U.S., 1x27, 1x47, 1x49, 1x50, 1 rabbit, no foreign this time

The 1927 is the oldest Canadian nickel I've found so far. The reverse is in beautiful shape. The obverse is just okay. It's in high F condition, worth somewhere around $5.

Junk Woody, I got 19 full rolls in one box in October, all of them pre-62 :) Total fluke, and the best coin rolling day of my life.

:) hmmmmmm NICKEL!!!! Me likes.

Nice find on the 1927. Glad to see there is still a decent amount of circulating nickel. About the same percentage as copper for me in southern US.

Apocalypto,

I think you hold the record the most pre-1963 nickels (19 rolls) in a single trip:
My best scores for 2009 are the following per single trips:

- 10 x rolls pre-1982 (including 2 rolls of pre-1963)
- 10 x rolls 1963-1978
- 3 x rolls 1960-61-62
- 3 x rolls 1947-49-50
- 40 x George V (1922-1936, no 1925 nor 1926) nickels
- 20 x George V (1922-1936, no 1925 nor 1926) nickels
- 10 x George V (1922-1936, no 1925 nor 1926) nickels

If I include all the George V single coins I found as well, I have a total of 80 George V's for 2009. I would be very surprised to find 1 or 2 (if any) for 2010.

Hiya Junk Woody! My best box apart from that one was a 36.75% box, back in February of 2009. That box also contained a 1942 in about an AU-55 condition. I love nickels. Got another box ready to go tonight.

Way to go on the 68 quarter,were you searching through rolls to find it?

The last 4 outings with the metal detector I've had I found a 1968 dime each time

and each time I check it with a magnet it sticks :(

Junk Woody,

I am searching through quarter rolls to fill the missing spots in my album, never really expecting to find silver.
Some years have 12 commeratives like 1992, 1999 and 2000 and Olympic coins.
Last year when I was heavily into searching dime rolls, I found about 175 silver dimes, but it was alot of work.

I like to search with a metal detector as well. I never found any silver underground.
I did once find a 1920 large cent in fine or better condition.

1945V: Finding silver quarters is awesome. Nothing like free silver. good job. :)

I went though yet another box of nickels.

1 box yielded:

190 Ni (9.5%)

And:
24 U.S., 1x40,1x49,1x52,1x53,1x54,1x59,1 Japanese yen coin

The older coins in this box are in good condition, especially the 49. Very shiny and no scratches. George has a few scratches on the 1940, but other than that it's in very good condition.

I picked up 60 rolls today and percentages were better than usual.
One roll must have been someone's collection dump (All Ni, coins were 1965,66,68 and 69, all circulated)

- 325 x Ni (13.5%)
- 1 x 1967 and 11 x twelve sided QEs (1956-1962)
- 55 X Americans
- 0 x foreign coins today

Searched through another batch of 30 rolls:

- 82 x Ni (6.85 %), This number is unexpected low considering I went to some new banks not normally on my route.
- 1959, 1961, 1962
- 32 x Americans (all 1964 and above)

Dime searching yielded a 1964 silver and in my penny rolls I found a 1931 and 1938.

How many dimes you do for that? I've tried dimes but really slow going.

Jadedragon.

Typically, I find one silver dime in $100 (or 1000 dimes).
I have had some lucky strikes (one roll of 46 x 1967 BU + 4 US silver coins, 10 rolls with 15 x 1968 silvers and one roll with 7 silvers 1950-1966)

I think overall, I searched 100,000 to 125,000 dimes.
I am still searching this year, but at a reduced rate.
This year, I have found a 1968 silver quarter and 1964 dime.

Congrats on the 1933 George V,I've yet to find one in the wild.

Nickels seem to be a good size to get foreign coin hitch hikers in the rolls.

Posted the following today in the Currently Circulating World Coins. Don't know why my brain didn't work to post it here.

Maybe some of you will know something about this possible error??? The dime I mention I also posted in that same topic yesterday when I found a possible error on a 2001 Canadian Special Edition honoring volunteers.

-------

From the same bank that I found the unusual 2001 Canadian dime, I now find a 1982 Canadian nickel that is about the thickness/thinness of a dime and it weighs about 2.6 - 2.7 grams.

I tried to find a website that would give me some info on this nickel. What I could find said:

-From 1982 to 1998 it becomes 75% copper and 25% nickel with a weight of 4.60 grams.

It also mentions this:

some off-metal transitional error

What would that be???

This is the website I found for info on this nickel.
You must be logged in to see this link. br /

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Enjoy your coin searches, everyone.
