Roll Hunting Nickels – Rapid Fire Finds!

November 29, 2019

fresh off of my live stream with seeker
and Raven the other night I had an extra box of nickels already opened that I
couldn’t use it was already open for the stream and I felt like you know what
let’s do a nickel hunt… Hey everybody this is Rob with Rob Finds Treasure and like I said feel like doing nickel hunt today I had a third box
that I didn’t use for the livestream and you know what I was thinking to myself
what if there’s a V nickel in here what if there’s a buffalo nickel in here what
if there’s more silver in here what if what if what if and I thought forget it
let’s get it done get my nickel mat out get the box hunted let’s do we got we’re
still on the quest for more silver more buffalos and more importantly my third
ever v nickel can’t believe I’ve only found two out of over 350 nickel boxes
yet I get posts almost every week from other subscribers and viewers that have
found V Nichols in their boxes fingers crossed
probably wishful thinking but I’m ready to get hunting that being said show me
something good first fine of the box is gonna come from Rule three pretty common
but it is a 40s nickel 1941 minted in Denver same rule another 40s nickel 1940
Philadelphia rule number six is gonna yield looks like either a foreign or
penny figured I had lay it out plug it before and it’s a little bigger than a
penny and it is but it is a penny anyway one penny will take it all day though
what year is that 1989 very nice roll number ten is gonna have a dandy well
hopefully but I noticed this really nice 1962 and when I set it down to take a
look at the reverse I caught a glimpse of an older one and sure enough it’s a
1939 will it be a 39 d or s for a key date and it’s not so let’s check it for
doubling on the word Monticello and on the words 5 cents so obviously there’s
some damage on it but I am not seeing the marks of any doubling on the reverse
would have been nice to find one let’s just double check that mint mark
or time absolutely nothing there I’ll take in 1939 Philadelphia minted nickel
and actually three finds of the Bucks 39 40 and 41 in the first 10 rows nothing
else well I guess we have a fourth find but only three Jefferson so far and
again they’re all on order roll 13 guess I’ll show the 50s in this hunt 1959
Denver same roll 1949 Philadelphia still the same rule and we uncovered in 1958
Denver and since I have you here I flatten out the roll and exposed another
1940 out of Philly as well roll 14 we have a 1946 out of Philly and I thought
I caught a glimpse of maybe another old rim here I did 1947 out of Philly as
well rule 16 1957 Denver same role and I guess we’ll add a 59 out of Denver as
well roll 18 1946 Philadelphia roll 21 looks like we’ve got a 1952 nickel
minted in Denver roll 25 and check it out another 39 another 39 Philly but
let’s look for a DDR just in case and I’m not seeing any DDR and confirmed a
39 Philly second 39 of the Bucks roll number 28 1956 out of Denver rule 29 and
check this out another 39 and I’m not seeing a mint mark at all but we got to
definitely double-check yeah no Midmark and despite the damage I
don’t see any doubling three 1939 just over halfway through the box roll 32
who’s got ourselves a 1955 is it minted in Philadelphia it’s not it’s a denver
not a semi key date roll 34 1947 Philadelphia roll 35 a 1953 San
Francisco roll 39 and we have a toasty 1958 Denver roll 42 you get another 1959
from Denver same roll and we finally got our first 2009 but it’s always from
Denver in my area rule 43 we have a Canadian 1987 roll 44 is gonna have a
1958 with a little darker tone it’s not a black beauty but it’s a 58d
nonetheless with a darker appearance to it I’ll take it roll 46 has an old ender
it had the reverse showing so I knew it was old but I thought it’d be a 64 and
instead it’s a 54 d same roll another 1958 Denver 147 my second 2009 of course
from Denver again row 48 of 1958 from Denver roll 50 is gonna give us a 1941
out of Philly well that’s all she wrote for that box and that hunt we had 14 in
the 50s 9 in the 40s I did keep one pretty nice 1962 nickel for my
collection and we had to 2009’s to foreigns as well as
three 39s none in great shape not any key dates there and no double died
reverses but still a fun hunt I tried something new this time I wanted to go
rapid fire on the finds I wanted to show every fine from the box let me know if
you guys enjoyed this type of hunt or if you prefer the other way either way
hopefully had fun I know I did we should would have scored a buffalo
didn’t happen was we’d have found silver didn’t happen which would have found a
be nickel didn’t happen but we did plot some goodies and we did find some finds
if you guys did enjoy the video I’d appreciate a thumbs up and as always
everyone happy hunting and thanks for watching

  1. Let's search Nickels – Rapid Fire Finds Style!

    I've noticed a significant decline in the amount of silver nickels I'm finding and so I am definitely hoping to see a few in this box (or at least one! LOL).

    We'll be hunting these boxes of nickels for Silver, Buffalo Nickels, Proof coins, Old Jefferson Nickels, V Nickels and 2009's for their low mintage. We found several nice Early Jefferson Nickels in this two bank box hunt so let's keep our fingers crossed and our eyes open for some goodies!

    Keep hunting and good luck!

    They're still out there for us to find!

  2. Both videos were awesome Rob loved the battle and always like watching the hunt. Oh little tuna and I have been doing penny hunts and in the last two weeks we have two videos up. Anyway keep the videos coming I like the mystery of the coin boxes

  3. I found a 1959 silver dime in my girlfriend's piggy bank on Sunday. She thought I was crazy when I started freaking out about finding it. It's only the second silver dime I've found in the wild.

  4. Love your videos!
    Always keeping my eye open for finds, but just casually. Excited though as I found my first silver war nickel yesterday! Came from change at the Wal-Mart self check. 1943 Philadelphia! Most common of the war years, but excited never-the-less!

  5. I just finished My first nickel hunt. All my bank had was $84 worth and it was an outstanding hunt, at least to Me. A dateless buffalo, a 44 war nickel to start. a 39 or 2 as well and of course, 40's and 50's nickels. Great hunt Rob. I loved either format.

  6. Maybe you might find it interesting to contact George and Jeremy at WhatTheHale$. They have a YouTube site. They frequently find a great deal of loose change in the abandoned storage units that they purchase at auction. ?

  7. I like the rapid fire. I find what I like best on your videos is I can just listen to the audio and look up based on your voice inflections. Usually I am going through coin rolls while watching YouTube. I would recommend you do whatever is easier for you to save your precious time. Meanwhile I'll be searching coin rolls.

  8. I went through a good nickel box a couple of days ago. Found 2 semi key dates 1950 P and 1958 P and a 1942 P war nickel.

  9. My dad has a ton of coins and star dollars. He got me into coin collecting, and I’ve started watching your videos. I enjoy how excited you get, even if you don’t find any silver.

  10. Buffalo nickels are hard to find in UK, I got group of nine off ebay I needed just the 1917 buffalo I didn't know I had 1939d key date till I seen the date on your mat.

  11. I liked the rapid fire vid! Also wanted to tell you that I got my 1st War Nickel in pocket change a couple days ago!! Also got my 1st V nickel yesterday… however I bought it at the LCS!!! ?
    Have a GREAT Day!!!

  12. How come Rob keeps all 50s and 40s. No hate just wondering because I filed and sometimes I don’t know if I should keep them or not

  13. Rapid or slow, either makes for great viewing while hunting along. Got 2 nickel boxes in Flower Mound yesterday. No silver here either…. Still trying to find my first V. Guess I'll go get 2 more! Also ordered my first Half $ box, hopefully it will be in Friday So I can search along with the live stream.

  14. Oh oh choose me from Oregon, I always get amazingly nice nickels. Several 1939 P,D,S several 1940's coins several 50's coins and lots of extremely nice 1968S and 1970S and 1980's

  15. Interesting video ? Interesting coin ? + ? + subscription.
