Smile Box of halves and box of dimes nets a bucket lister.

I got this 90%er in the 5th roll. Today I got a box of dimes to go through as well. I was surprised when the 50%er canadian appeared. I have always wanted one. The Rosie was nice too. I couldn't believe my eyes when this merc showed up. It has always been a bucket lister for me.
TQ for looking and HH.

Started coin roll hunting a few months ago. Primarily halves. But got my wife involved and she loves “ treasure hunting” and is very lucky with it.

First 2 boxes yielded a single ‘64 Kennedy each.

Next box gave up 4’64s, a ‘53 Franklin and a ‘42 Walker. Also 18 40% halves, 3 proof coins, 2 gold (plated) halves (‘64 & ‘71) and a number of uncirculated coins.

Wife sent me to the bank the next day to buy another box. It gave up a ‘40 and. ‘46 Walker. The ‘46 was uncirculated. Also 11 40% coins, another proof, and 3 no FGs.

Next 2 boxes gave up NOTHING. NADA. ZIP.

Bought 10 rolls and wife found an ‘07 Barber.

Next box had a ‘67.

Just bought 15 rolls and a single ‘64 was in them.

10 rolls of dimes had a single ‘64.

20 rolls of quarters had nothing.

But always fun. Even more when somebody is diddling with a collection.

2 AT Pros, XTerra 705, Tesoro Sand Shark, 2 Garrett Ace 250s, 2 Pro Pointers, 2 scoops, an understanding wife and a sore back!

Usa -- Great finds! Nice variety. Foreign silver, yay! Mercuries are so cool looking, too.

Chipk -- You've rocked it for just hunting a few months, congrats! As long as oldie halves like that are showing up I'd be hitting that bank for more as often as possible, and wouldn't let just 2 skunk boxes slow me down.

To everyone -- is there a time limit on coinage designs? I'd swear I read once they *had* to redo some coins because they were coming due. US Dollar coin I think? Followed by a big fuss of choosing something non-traditional to be "PC" about it. But then this Roosevelt dime hasn't changed in what, 70+ years? Whats the rule?
