  1. Toss to sort. I’m not sure how familiar you are with coin roll hunting? The simple of it is you get a bunch of say….penny rolls. You go thru them looking for anything 1982 an earlier because those are still made from copper. Different coins have different things to look for. The way I sort is two or more buckets with a backboard [cardboard box] with year and denomination on it. It I find a penny that is 1982 or earlier, I toss it in the bucket. 1958 and earlier also needs a bucket. All the ‘not as valuable’ coins get dropped into the bucket between my legs to be spent on whatever the kids are doing these days. Warning, a full bucket of coins is pretty heavy, switch out when it is half full/half empty?

  2. I have amassed about 50 five gal buckets, and about 68 two and a half gal buckets (lighter to carry when full for my age). Their use varies from standard tool buckets with Bucket Boss organizers attached, rolled garden hose storage, rolled extension cord storage, a five gal bucket with immediate use plumbing tools inside (if I encounter a water leak I already have a bucket handy), buckets to hold my ‘concentrates’ from prospecting to pan latter when time permits, you name it! If any situation calls for holding or hauling, I have a bucket for it!
