Went through boxes 6 and 7 of pennies in the last couple of days - it was A Tale of Two Boxes. Both were brought in from RBC locations other my local one, since they had to order more when they ran out. One was rolled by a machine, the other by hand. In the box rolled by hand, each roll looked identical: all face up, with the same brand of roller and a new BU penny on the end. Had a bad feeling...
0 George VI
0 US Wheaties
6 Laureate ('61-'64)
Clearly someone had been through it :/ The machine-rolled box was more like what I see around here:
6 George VI ('40-'52)
8 US Wheaties ('42-'57)
25 Laureate ('54-'64)
2 Bermuda 1 cent
It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.
I've seen easily five hundred 2007 pennies since I started CRH (52,500 pennies). Charlton 2012 says the mintages are about 900,000,000 for CPS and 9,000,000 for CPZ that year. Statistically speaking, that means I should have found maybe 3-7 non-magnetic by now, but I haven't found one. Hopefully the law of averages will kick in soon!
