100,000+ Quarters Searched! ... drawing blood

Yesterday morning I spent some time investigating the EBay incident. I learned that the hacker sent out 200 e-mails through EBay's messaging system. Most e-mails concerned bids having to do with digital cameras and sneakers. Here's one of them:

Hello seller,

Paul Rose
[fake name and temporary e-mail address, I'm sure]

I also found out that he/she used a computer with an ip address in Chicago to navigate EBay, although I'm quite confident they are not a native English speaker.

Last night I coin roll searched and drew blood! While searching my quarters I got a nasty cut. That's a first, I think. Who knew this was such a dangerous hobby.

I looked through 5,600 quarters (2 boxes and some hand rolled). That puts me over the 100,000 mark. In that bunch I found seven Canadians and a East Caribbean States 25¢. No silver quarters or new varieties marked the occasion.

I also searched 10,700 dimes. In them I found five silver Rosies (1955S, 1956, 1964D, 1964 x 2), seventeen Canadians, and two Bermuda 10¢. The 1955S is one I needed. It's one of the more rarer Roosevelts too! Seven more to go.

This morning I managed to get through 2,950 pennies. I found a minor Wheat hoard. One roll had twenty-seven Wheats in it. In total I found forty-six Wheats, thirty-six Canadians, and two Bahama 1¢.

Found: 3 pennies (1 in the parking lot at work, 2 at White Hen Pantry), 1 nickel (at White Hen Pantry)

Thursday, September 27, 2007


Yesterday afternoon I discovered my E-Bay account had been hacked into! I tried to look at some past auctions to gage coin prices and wasn't able to log on. I then realized I had "won" four auctions, three for sneakers and one for an $8,000 rolex watch! I e-mailed E-Bay support and today I IM'ed with a customer support representative to get it all straightened out. Luckily they couldn't get into my PayPal account so they couldn't pay for any of these items and my good E-Bay reputation has been restored.

Identity theft is one of my worst nightmares for my wife and I. Hopefully this is my last run-in with it for some time.

I didn't do any coin roll hunting last night as I was visiting with a grade school friend and his wife, but I did manage to find some good coins. While using the coin counter at my bank I found one penny, one dime, two Canadian quarters, and one silver quarter (1963) in the reject bin. Finding that silver quarter was great! That's my first pure find of one of those!

Found: 3 pennies (1 at Sovereign Bank, 2 at McDonald's), 1 dime (at Sovereign Bank), 1 quarter (at Sovereign Bank, silver, 1963), 2 foreign coins (2 Canadian quarters at Sovereign Bank)

2nd King George V found!

Last night was a light night. I only searched 10,000 (four boxes) of pennies. In the four boxes was forty-five Wheats and eighty-nine Canadians. One of the Canadians was one I needed, a 1932 George V cent! That's the second one I've found now. I also found nice upgrades for my 1918 and 1919S Wheats.

The Wheat breakdown over the past two posts is:

1919, 1919S (2), 1927(2), 1930, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1944, 1945, 1946(5), 1947, 1948(2), 1949(3), 1950S, 1952, 1952D, 1953(3), 1953D(2), 1955, 1956D(3), 1957, 1957D(5), 1958(3), 1958D

(This picture is not the coin I found. It is the same type, however.)

300,000+ Dimes Searched!

Yesterday I tried something new. I skipped nickels, for the most part, and doubled up on the quarters. I tried to a will a silver quarter. It didn't work. Oh well, better luck next time! Sometimes even four boxes of dimes doesn't produce.

I searched 8,200 quarters. In them I found fifteen Canadians, one US penny, one UK 10 pence, one French franc, and one Bermuda 25¢.

I also looked through 5,250 dimes. This bunch put me past the 300,000 mark for the year! It was a good bunch. It produced five silver dimes (1941, 1946, 1954D, 1959, 1962D), five Canadians, and one East Caribbean States 10¢. The Mercuy I found is a nice upgrade.

After that I went through 360 hand rolled nickels in which I got one Canadian. It was one I needed, 1971.

Finally I searched 800 hand rolled pennies. In them was four Wheats, four Canadians, and two dimes.

300,000+ Pennies Searched, 2,000+ Wheats Found!

This weekend was an extremely busy weekend, both coin roll hunting and otherwise. Despite all the searching I managed to get most of my driveway job done. My wife did a tremendous amount of cooking too, we'll be eating well this week!

After dumping off my waste coins, I went to several banks to pick up some hand rolled coins. At the first bank one teller gave me three half dollars. I saw her pick out about 4-5 silver ones and put them in her drawer. My heart sank. She missed one though, in the three was a 1968D. I went to two other banks and managed to get a big mess of coins, maybe too many coins, I really had to "work" hard to go through them all.

I searched 2,360 hand rolled quarters. In them I only found one US nickel and one US penny. No Canadians even, bummer.

I next went through 7,950 dimes. In them was three silver Rosies (1947D, 1952S, 1963D), ten Canadians, one Barbados 10¢, one Aruba 5¢ (worth 3 cents), one US penny, and one Swiss ½ franc (worth 46 cents). The 1952S was one I needed and so I'm now down to just eight varieties needed!

I also searched 5,520 nickels. In them was two War Times (1942P, 1945P), five Canadians, one Bermuda 5¢, one US dime, one UK 20 pence (worth 41 cents), and one Swiss 20 Rappen.

Lastly I blasted through 13,050 pennies! Not all at once, but it still was a lot. They produced eighty-three Wheats, ninety Canadians, two Bermuda 1¢, one Bahama 1¢, and one US dime. In them I found two I needed, 1917D and 1921.

The wheat break down for the past two posts is:

1910, 1913, 1916, 1917, 1917D, 1919D, 1920(3), 1921, 1923, 1929, 1930, 1931, 1937(2), 1939, 1940(4), 1941(7), 1941D(2), 1942(2), 1942S, 1944(6), 1944D, 1944S, 1945(9), 1946(14), 1947(2), 1947S, 1948(7), 1949(4), 1950, 1950S, 1951, 1951D(4), 1952(4), 1952D(3), 1953(3), 1953D(6), 1953S(2), 1954, 1955, 1955D, 1955(6), 1956D(8), 1957, 1957D(10), 1958, 1958D(5)

Found: 1 penny (outside Bank of America), 2 dimes (at Sovereign Bank)

Ultrasound #2

Yesterday was an exciting day (and a nervous one too). My wife had her second ultrasound. Everything looked good. We could see a lot more detail this time around. They measured a lot more too.

Once again the baby brought on some good silver! When I got home I searched 4,800 quarters. In them I found one silver quarter (1957D) and five Canadians. The silver quarter is 10th one of the year! It's not a new variety, but it still feels good to have it.

After that I pounded through 11,700 dimes. They produced six silver Rosies (1956D, 1957, 1959, 1962D, 1963D, 1964), twelve Canadians, one US penny, one UK 5 pence, and one Singapore 10¢. My Thursday teller avoids giving me 2007P boxes now. I think that helped. The 1956D is one I needed. Nine more to go!

Lastly, I searched 3,950 pennies. In them I found twenty-four Wheats and twenty-nine Canadians ... no new varieties.

Found: 3 pennies (2 on the street near our house, 1 at Sovereign Bank), 2 dimes (1 outside Sovereign Bank, 1 inside Sovereign Bank)

Bermuda Madness

Last night was a quick night.

I quickly searched the remaining box of cents I had. In it I found thirteen Wheats and twenty-two Canadians. No new varieties were in there. In the past few days I have found the following Wheats:

1913, 1929, 1934, 1940(2), 1940S, 1941(4), 1942(3), 1942S, 1945(7), 1945D, 1946, 1947, 1948(4), 1949, 1951D, 1952, 1953(4), 1953D(4), 1953S, 1954D(2), 1955(6), 1955D(3), 1957D(4), 1958D(4)

I also went through 5,360 nickels (two boxes and some hand rolled). They produced one very worn 1920 Buffalo, three War Times (1943P, 1944P, 1945P), eighteen Canadians, four Bermudas, and one Dominican Republic 5 Centavos coin. That's the most Bermudas I've found. What's strange is that both boxes had two even though they were stamped with different dates. I'm not sure who the guys are on the DR coin. World Coin Gallery has them down as Sanchez and Mello, but a quick web search didn't turn up any more information on them. The coin reminds me of some ancient Roman coins.

I also finished my penny book, The Complete Guide To Lincoln Cents by David W. Lange. It was well worth the $10 I paid for it. The book is 11" x 8" and is 364 pages. I only read half of it. The first half covers the history of the Lincoln cent, forgeries and error coins in detail. Some really interesting stories and tidbits are in there. The second half covers each variety in detail. I just skimmed that section as it is a bit repetitive for a circulation collector like me. My only gripe with the book is that although there were plenty of useful pictures they were all in black and white. I'll definitely get his other books in the same format. They are just more expensive. :(

My next book is The Official Red Book: a Guide Book of Indian And Flying Eagle Cents by Richard Snow. I just started reading it. This is a great series that I hope grows to cover every US coin. Each book has tons of color photos in it.

I also heard about this great product yesterday while listening to Living On Earth. It's a Micro-CHP, a home heating and power system that runs on natural gas, called Freewatt. It's great because it doesn't waste the heat from the power generation and reduces the power loss associated with transmission. It'd be good for homes in colder regions of the US. Here's a link to the company's website. In certain states you can even feed the unused power (like when you're at work, etc.) back into the power grid.

Eagle Eye

Yesterday started out pretty good. While dumping a big mess of hand rolled coin at the Bank of America I spotted some silver halves in the teller's tray. He had twelve of them. I bought them all. In them were four silver ones (1964 x 2, 1968D x 2). Two 90% and two 40%, not bad!

When I got home I went through 5,480 quarters (two boxes and some hand rolled). I was feeling lucky after this Saturday, no luck though ... I only found eight Canadians, no new varieties.

I also went through 2,850 dimes (two boxes I got at the bank were all 2007P's!). The hand rolled dimes produced. In them were four silver Rosies (1963, 1963D, 1964D x 2) and nine Canadians.

Lastly, I began working on the pennies. So far in 9,000 I've found forty-seven Wheats, 113 Canadians, two US dimes, one Euro 5¢, and one Bermuda 1¢. One of the Wheats is one I needed, a pretty nice 1913!

I've got one more box of pennies to go through at home and about 5,000 nickels.

Found: 1 penny (Bank of America, a 1944 Wheat)

Silver Quarter

This weekend was a good weekend. On Saturday my wife and I relaxed a bit. On Sunday we weeded for about 2 hours (the backyard looks great) and then participated in the Jimmy Fund Walk. Four members of my family did the whole 26.2 miles. They'll be sore today, I'm sure, but I'm proud of them. It took 9½ hours. My wife and I did about 4½ miles with them. Our team raised over $7,000!

I also, of course, did some coin roll hunting. It was a good weekend for that too.

I searched 7,100 pennies (two boxes and some hand rolled). In that bunch I found forty-four Wheats, sixty-five Canadians, and one Bahama 1¢. There were no new varieties in there, I did find one 1909 cent for which the obverse looks outstanding, but the reverse is a bit stained. The Wheat details for the past two posts are:

1909, 1919, 1919S, 192?, 1920(2), 1923, 1924, 1926, 1927, 1929S, 1930, 1934, 1945, 1936, 1937, 1938, 1940(7), 1941(3), 1942D, 1944(3), 1945(4), 1946(8), 1946D(3), 1947(2), 1948(3), 1949, 1950, 1950D(2), 1950S(2), 1951(2), 1951D(4), 1952(2), 1952D, 1953(5), 1954S, 1955(5), 1956(8), 1956D(6), 1957, 1957D(5), 1958, 1958D(6)

I also went through 4,800 nickels (two boxes and some hand rolled). I found two War Times (1943P, 1945P), eleven Canadians, two Bermuda 5¢, and two US pennies (boo!). No new varieties were found.

At Bank of America I picked up 2,150 hand rolled dimes and found one silver Rosie (1964D), three Canadians, and one UK 5 pence piece in them. And at the same bank I got 1,720 hand rolled quarters. In them was one silver quarter (1962D) and four Canadians (plus $1.50 in extra quarters). That silver quarter was one I needed. It definitely lifted my coin roll hunting spirits. Can't wait to find the 10th silver quarter of the year!

Also on the charts I added the number of days since my last album find. For this I'm only counting Lincolns, Jeffersons, Roosevelts, Washingtons, Kennedys, etc.

Found: 6 pennies (1 at Sovereign Bank, 4 at the Car Wash, 1 at Shaw's), 2 nickels (both at Dunkin' Donuts), 1 dime (at Stop 'N Shop)

A New Penny! ... The Curse of the 2007P's

The Curse of the 2007P's continues ... yesterday when I went to pick up my Thursday coin I was disappointed to see that all six boxes of dimes I ordered were solid 2007P's. I'm not sure why this keeps happening and why it keeps happening only with the dimes. I didn't bother taking them since I realized it right at the counter. They hurt my average a bit.

When I got home I first went through some hand rolled stuff I got, 200 quarters and 200 dimes. I only "found" three pennies. One dime roll was forty-seven cents short. :(

I next went through 10,700 pennies, four boxes and some hand rolled. In the mix I found sixty-eight Wheats, eighty-two Canadians, one Canadian 10¢, and one Bermuda 1¢. I got two new varieties too, 1919S and 1950 Canadian! It feels like it has been a while since I found a new US penny variety so it felt good (It has actually been 10 days). I'm hoping the other two boxes I picked up yield some other good coins, there seems to be a lot coins from the 1920's in these boxes.

Some album plugging statistics:

Lincoln Pennies - 0 days since last find (9/14/07), 10 days before that (9/4/07)
Jefferson Nickels - 77 days since last find (6/29/07), 3 days before that (6/26/07)
Roosevelt Dimes - 10 days since last find (9/4/07), 26 days before that (8/9/07)
Washington Quarters (non State) - 45 days since last find (8/31/07), 55 days before that (7/7/07)

Found: 1 dime (at White Hen Pantry), 1 quarter (at Costco)

Lincoln Book

Yesterday my company had it's annual golf tournament at Stow Acres. It was a great day. Perfect weather and a beautiful course. I just wish I could help my team out more. Better luck next year!

In the past few days I went through some coin. In two boxes of pennies I found twenty-eight Wheats, thirty-one Canadians, one Barbados 1¢, and one Bermuda 1¢. I didn't find any new varieties.

The Wheat breakdown has been:

1916, 1920, 1928, 1929S, 1934, 1937, 1940(2), 1941(6), 1942(2), 1944(9), 1945(4), 1946(5), 1947(2), 1948(3), 1949, 1950(3), 1950S, 1951(6), 1952(2), 1953(2), 1953D(4), 1954, 1954S, 1955(3), 1955D(7), 1956(3), 1956D(7), 1957, 1957D(4), 1958(2), 1958D(3)

I also searched two boxes of nickels. The boxes produced one War Time (1942P), six Canadians, one Bahamas 5¢, and one Bermuda 5¢. No new varieties.

While dumping a bunch of coins at the coin counting machine, I went through a box of dimes. In it I found one silver Rosie (1964D), six Canadians, and one Bermuda 10¢. I think I'll try to multi-task like that again in the future. It was much better than just standing there waiting.

Finally, last night the mail delivered a new coin book for me. It's titled The Complete Guide to Lincoln Cents and it's by David W. Lange. I only managed to read a couple of pages this morning, but it seems like a good one. The same author also wrote one on Buffalo nickels and Mercury dimes. I'll finish a book I'm reading by Tim Severin first.

Found: 1 penny (at the Sovereign Bank), 1 quarter (in TP's front lawn)

Silver Surprise

Last night things started out well. I went through 400 hand rolled quarters and found one silver quarter (1964). It was a variety I already had five extras of, but it was good to find one nonetheless.

I next went through 10,000 dimes (one of the boxes was all brand new dimes, so I didn't open it). In the mix I found three silver dimes (1937, 1953D, 1964D) and three Canadians. There were no new varieties, but that was my 10th Mercury found.

After that I went through 10,000 pennies. They produced sixty-two Wheats, ninety-three Canadians, one Bahamas 1¢, and one Panama 1¢. No new US varieties turned up, but I did find a Canadian I needed, 1943. I'll post the Wheat breakdown on Thursday after I get through two more boxes I have.

Also ... this weekend I'm participating in the Jimmy Fund Walk for cancer research. I'm doing it with my family in support of father-in-law who has kidney cancer. If you like to contribute to our team goal you can do so at this link. Thanks!

Found: 1 quarter (at the Sovereign Bank)

2nd Proof Nickel

This weekend was a nice relaxing weekend. The weather wasn't so good, so I couldn't seal the driveway or mow the lawn (didn't need it anyway). Instead we saw 3:10 To Yuma on Saturday, which was enjoyable despite a lot of logic holes and historical inaccuracies, and on Sunday we had fun going to Home Depot to pick out paint for our bathrooms.

I went through a mixture of hand rolled and boxed coin.

I searched 1,600 hand rolled quarters and found seven Canadians. No new varieties, however.

I also searched 7,750 dimes which were both hand rolled and boxed. In them I found four silver dimes (191?, 1960D, 1961D, 1964D), twenty Canadians, one US penny, and one UK 5 pence piece. The Mercury dime I found is so worn it is almost as thin as foil. If I hold it at an angle I just read 1918 or 1919. It breaks my record for oldest US dime found coin roll hunting. I just wish it were a specimen suitable for my album.

In addition I looked through 7,040 nickels. In the mix were six War Time nickels (1943P, 1943S, 1944P, 1945P x 2), fifteen Canadians, one Bermuda 5¢, one Iceland 1 Krone, one Ecuador 5 Centavos, and a 1973S proof US nickel. The proof nickel is the second one I've found. It still has a lot of its mirror finish. In one box there were three War Time nickels, which ties my record.

Lastly, I went through 4,000 hand rolled pennies. In them I found nineteen Wheats, twenty-eight Canadians, and three US dimes. One of the Wheat pennies has a slight clip to it, so far I've only found one other of these.

The Wheat breakdown was:

1936(2), 1937, 1940, 1945, 1946, 1946D, 1950, 1950D, 1952(2), 1952D, 1955(3), 1956(2), 1957, 1958D

Although I didn't find any new varieties for my albums, the unusual stuff that popped up kept me going. Better luck, this week, I hope.

Found: 6 pennies (1 at the Canyon Cafe, 1 at Sovereign Bank, 2 at Stop & Shop)

Friday, September 7, 2007


Last night and this morning were not so good. I went through a lot of coins, but didn't find anything I needed. It felt like I was "close" with some of my pennies, but no luck. Hopefully the dimes I have left to go through will produce something, if not the three nickel boxes in the queue should turn up something interesting.

10,000 dimes produced nothing, no silver, no Canadians, no other. Bummer.

15,000 pennies produced far more. I didn't find any varieties I needed but I least found seventy-one Wheats, one hundered thirty-seven Canadians, and one Bermuda 1¢. I think there are some Canadian upgrades in there.

The Wheat Breakdown:

1919D, 1925, 1934, 1935, 1938, 1941(2), 1942, 1942D, 1942S, 1944(8), 1944D(2), 1945(4), 1946(7), 1946S, 1948(2), 1949, 1950(3), 1951(2), 1951D, 1951S, 1952, 1952D, 1953(2), 1953D(5), 1953S, 1954D, 1955(3), 1955D, 1956, 1956D(2), 1957D(3), 1958D(4)

Today I also redeemed My Coke Rewards points for another free year of Smart Money magazine.

Found: 9 pennies (near vending machine at work), 1 nickel (near vending machine at work)

Thursday, September 6, 2007


Last night I had a bit too many coins to go through. I have a personal rule that says I must go through what I've got and dump it before I get more. Fortunately my wife was patient and let me go through some nickels while she finished dinner and while we watched TV. That's love for you! I'll have to slow down some and return the patience.

I first finished searching 10,000 pennies. In them I found fifty-two Wheats, sixty-six Canadians, one Bahama 1¢, and one Bermuda 1¢. No new varieties though ... bummer.

After that I slammed through 2,200 hand rolled nickels. In that mix I got one Buffalo (1919), one War Time (1943P), and thirteen Canadians. The Buffalo is just about dateless, but if you hold it at the right angle you can read 1919 on it. It is tied for my second oldest nickel.

The penny breakdown over the last few days is as follows (I kept trying to will D's and S's on some of these, but it didn't work):

1937 x 2
1940 x 2
1941 x 5
1944 x 5
1946 x 3
1951 x 2
1953 x 2
1953D x 3
1955 x 3
1956D x 4
1957 x 4
1957D x 2

And one dateless penny that's so corroded you can't read the date. It's at home stuck in a potato. I'm doing an experiment with to see if the potato trick will let me read the date tonight.

Caribbean Calling

Well, I think the Caribbean might be calling me. I can't get over how many coins I've found from the Caribbean (and South America). I guess it's just a sign of how much people around here travel down there.

Last night I went through a mix of hand rolled stuff and some boxes.

I first went through 120 half-dollars. I was skunked and didn't find anything. I then went through 1,000 quarters. In them I only found two Canadians.

The dimes were much better. in 10,100 dimes I found seven silver Rosies (1946, 1947D, 1960D, 1963D, 3 x 1964), thirty-two Canadians, one Ecuador 10 centavos coin, one East Caribbean States ¢, and one British Caribbean Territories ¢. It's quite a coincidence that I found another ECS coin, being that Saturday's was my first one and the next one was the same week at a different bank. The British Caribbean Territories was a precursor to the ECS, I believe. No new varieties were in the mix, but I did have two silver Rosie upgrades.

I also quickly went through 2,500 hand rolled pennies. They were a bit lacklustre. In them I found five Wheats, twenty-one Canadians, and one US dime, no new varieties.

I also found a trading partner today! He's going to look for Canadian coins for me in Canada and I'll look for US coins down here. I think it'll work out great.

Found: 1 penny (at the Sovereign Bank, it's really flat, as if a train ran over it)

200,000+ Pennies Searched, 100th Silver Dime Found!

This weekend went well. My wife I really needed the 3 days to get back on track after our vacation. We got to visit with some family, relax a bit, and do some yard work. It sounds strange to say it, but it was great fun weeding together on Sunday. Our yard looks much better. We still haven't found a great Indian restaurant in our area, however.

I also broke some new milestones coin roll hunting. I surpassed the 200,000 pennies searched mark and found my 100th silver dime! I also found some great stuff over the past few days.

Since Friday I searched 12,800 pennies. In them I found seventy-three Wheats, eighty Canadians, four US dimes, and one Bermuda 1¢. I found two varieties I needed 1910 (my third oldest penny found) and 1916D. The Wheat breakdown is as follows:

1935 x 3
1936 x 2
1940 x 5
1941 x 3
1942 x 5
1944 x 10
1945 x 3
1946 x 3
1949 x 3
1950 x 2
1952D x 3
1953 x 2
1955 x 4
1956 x 5
1956D x 2
1957 x 3
1957D x 7
1958 x 2
1958D x 3

I also searched 4,980 nickels. I the mix I pulled out one dateless Buffalo, twenty-two Canadians, one Bermuda 5¢, and one Euro 5¢. Strangely, there were no War Time nickels in the bunch, but I did find a 1967 Canadian that I needed. It's a good one, because I've heard they're impossible to find, even in Canadian circulation.

I managed to exchange my dime skunk boxes (2007P's) for better boxes. In total I searched 5,800 dimes. I found five Silver Rosies (1946D, 1957, 1962D, 1964D x 2), eleven Canadians, two UK 10 pence, and one East Caribbean States 10¢. I needed the worn 1946D and the 2006 RCM Canadian dime. Ten more silver Rosies to go! The East Caribbean States is a entity I never heard of. I looked it up on wikipedia and it is some sort of Caribbean economic union that issues its own currency.

I also went through a few hand rolled rolls of quarters. In them I found only two Canadians and one US nickel. One of them was a silver one though, a 1947 Maple Leaf! That's the first one I've found in a roll and the second one I've come across in a month.

Thirteen loose halves produced nothing.

At the bank I exchanged the two boxes of dimes I picked up a Presidential dollar coin I needed, Jefferson 2007P.

Found: 2 pennies (the auto part store, Rutland State Park)

Redeemed: $1.85
