Nickel, coin roll hunting

Post by SavannahMavy » Tue Sep 14, 2021 12:48 am

Well I recently have started watching coin roll hunting videos and took an interest in it as I already had some experience with coins due to both of my grandfathers gifting me several old coins (still going through my mom side's grandpa 500+ 1940s-1965s & wheaties). So I decided to give it a shot, went to 2 different places hoping to get ~50$ worth of nickels from each, only got one pack of 50$ and one 16$ pack. I figured I might as well open the 16$ one today and holy guacamole, I was not prepared for what came out of the last two. I got 1 1939, 2 1944 chrome plateds (1 in nearly mint condition), 3 1947s (2 in nearly mint condition), 3 1949s, 1 1953, 3 1955s (2 nearly mint and one still very good condition), 1 1959, 3 1960s (all very good condition), 7 1961s (all about very good condition), 4 1962s, 4 1963s, 8 1964s, 1 1965, 21 1967 commemorative bunny nickels & 11 2005 commemorative V nickels. They are placed from left to right in the picture with the bunny nickels on the bottom and the 2005 V nickels on top. Should I maybe get the best ones certified because they really do seem mint condition?

Welcome to the Forum
It would cost more to get them certified than what they would be worth.
They are all circulated so they are not worth much over face value.
Sounds like someone turned in there collection of nickels.
I used to give the 67 nickels to the kids at Easter and tell them it was the Easter Bunny.

Great box! :D It's not always about value.

I did a couple of boxes a year ago and only found a 1944 war nickel. I had a lot of fun doing this! :)

I agree with not even trying to have them cert'd. The cost would be prohibitive and you would lose huge $$$ in the long run. I would start putting them in holders or nice albums and store them in a nice dry place. You have lots of choices as far as holders and albums/folders for the holstrered coins. Congrats ... you have a lifetime of enjoyment ahead if you stay with it.

Okay well thanks for letting me know, I now have 3 1944s though and 2 are in bad condition so I might just sell the worse condition on ebay or something. Thanks for the warm welcome as well :)
