That is impressive. 2000 in 6 years. Are you still...

Grew up reading buried treasure pirate stories which twisted me all up on silver and gold. My father was a coin collector and always had been since childhood so I got indoctrinated early on about what was "wrong" with the new change. My relatives had a feed mill and sometimes let me buy any silver coins that came in and that's how I got my first $5 silver certificate too.

During the 70s gas crunch and stagflation the local independent gas station owner was taking silver change for gas under face value which got my attention, and my first big boy buy at the coin shop was an un-circulated war nickel set.
To this day I'm known to hold up the check out line scanning dates which is how I found a 1909 VDB penny not long ago

I cancelled several bank accounts that I used exclusively for roll hunting. The maintainance fees on accounts kept on and on, even when I met their minimum balances. One bank that I joined using my father as a reference (he received a free $50 and so did I) sucked my account to zero in less than six months. I stayed with my credit union that I joined over 30 years ago. They have a fast coin counter which I used quite often. Nowadays, if I find a war nickel or wheatie in my change, I get a cheap thrill. I was really addicted to roll hunting and went through about 30 grand in change per year for several years, and that's really not much money for hard core roll hunters. For me, roll hunting was a hobby, not a money maker.
