I purchased a box of nickels from my bank and these are the results:
- Pre 1959: 9
- Silver War Nickels: 0
- "S" Mint Marks: 8
- 2009: 0
- Total EF - BU Coins For Albums: 125
- Key Find(s): 1939, 1954D(AU)
Verdict: Since I was shorted in the last box, I picked up this lot at another branch. The teller seemed confused when I inquired about a box and asked "how much that was?". So I ended up with $100 in customer rolls. I was a little worried about the quality I might receive from these since I've been getting terrible condition coins in customer rolls lately. After opening several of these rolls, I got the feeling these were already searched. This was later validated when I looked at the total numbers. There were no war nickels, 2009 dates, and very little pre 1959. Normally this would of been a complete waste of time; except I did find some great coins! The previous roll hunter left me a complete run of BU 1990 - 2004 (P & D), most 2005 - 2012 in BU, and many 1980's in BU. I was able to fill a large chunk of my uncirculated set, and upgrade some other pieces! Even my circulated set go some nice upgrades.
