Now is the Time to CRH!

Coins-United States | ChildOfTheWheat

As the holidays draw nearer, more and more people are turning in their change jars at the bank to pay for christmas gifts. Unfortunelty, these people could be trading in old collections, hoards, or silver stockpiles for face at their banks. Since soooo many people are spending these collectable coins during this time, it is easier now more than ever to find ultra rare coins. Fortunately, many of these coins are recovered quickly by us numismatists. It is our job as coin collectors to preserve the history in these coins that we are trusted to care for. That being said, you should go down to your local bank RIGHT NOW and get a box of cents, nickels, dimes, or what ever! Go, get the bag of ikes! What are you doing here! Just do it!


Happy holidays and good luck hunting,

It's a pleasure to follow you. Check out my blogs if you get board! I never thought of that. You know it makes sense. I'm going to hit the bank on Tuesday. Get a block of Penny's and nickels. I was in line at a store when it came to my turn I was in the right place at the right time.. I got my change and noticed immediately the two nickels I got in change were special. We're they a1938 p and d.. They had luster ,that's what caught my eye.went home shipped them out to ngc. How about a 68 and 67! I figured somebody broke up there collection down on his luck. Like you said makes perfect sense. Thanks for the information! Lot's of luck

I actually got some nickel rolls today! Found a 1940 and '59 D. will keep looking and what is a Peg Leg in your above comment?

Nice finds! "Peg Legs", from what I understand, is a type of error found on ikes involving the left leg of "R" in "LIBERTY". It's normally supposed to have serifs, but on error "Peg Leg" coins, it doesn't have serifs and appears rounded at the ends instead. You can take a look at a more detailed explanation here:

So which bank can I go to for a bag of Ike Dollars?! That's be awesome, but even better if you could wind up getting a $1K face value bag of Morgans and/or Peace Dollars - can you imagine? I do agree, ChildOfTheWheat - this is a great time of year to go searching coin rolls - Happy huntin' to all, and to all - may you find much 90% US silver in your searches!!

You can order bags of ike's from your bank, they can still get them from the FED i believe... I am on one of the larger coin forms of the internet (Coin community forum), and several people are constantly being supplied with ikes and are constantly finding Peg Leg's, proofs, 1973's, 1972 type 2's, morgans, peace dollars, etc... I am just a YN, so I have never gotten a bag, but i'd imagine it would be pretty fun to search through them all!
