Excited For My Box Of Half Dollars

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've begun doing some coin roll hunting lately. A few days ago I ordered my first box of half dollars from my bank, they should be arriving on Wednesday. I'm excited and looking forward to sorting through that box!

When I found out I wouldn't be able to get the halves until next week, I picked up a box of pennies to sate my appetite for coin hunting. Unfortunately, the penny box turned out to be first box I've gotten totally skunked on, with not even a single copper penny. I found this bizarre because the coins were bank rolled, in plastic wrappers. The only conclusion I can draw from this is that some other coin hunter deposited a large amount of zinc pennies and they were all rolled up together.

 Hopefully the box of halves will yield better results! I'll do a post with any finds after I finish the search.

For anyone getting started in coin roll hunting, the following article provides an excellent beginner's how-to guide
