Greetings, community.
Due to a special event, I came in possession of multiple original bank boxes of cents, approximately dating back to the early 2010's. Multiple boxes are stamped with a inspection stamp dating 04/02/2012. End coins of rolls contained within said boxes display an large amount of copper cents, and wheat cents with the oldest dating 1910.
The boxes themselves are in sorry state due to transportation and storage in the past decade, however the rolls are in pristine condition, unharmed by the elements. I do understand that these rolls currently carry little to none additional value, but would hate to see decade-old rolls opened.
I here ask the community on their opinions about what is their course of action for these said boxes of of cents.

Any and all opinions/suggestions welcomed and appreciated.

I would open then and look for errors and varieties as well as high grades.

I would open carefully. Save rolls.
Could be treasure inside.
Sounds like a fantastic selection to search.

The special event is that a member of our local coin club has unfortunately passed away, he willed for his collection to be liquidated by the coin club.
I volunteer at a local coin shop which has very close relations with the coin club, so they started to sell parts of his collection at our shop. The collection is mainly cents, they brought in/sold at least 50,000 wheat cents just yesterday. Along with the wheat cents, there's these boxes of cents.

I opened one of the rolls for sampling purposes, I found 3 shield cents and 17 copper cents, I'd say that's a good ratio.
I would update the community with my finds if I ever decided to search through the rolls.
