I just closed up the 50th roll, so I'm halfway through them.

Just to bring everything to this page, so far I found,



15 Wheat backs
18 Canadian
1 Dime

1960 D http://goccf.com/t/380866 I still have no idea what's up with the date on this coin.
1963 D http://goccf.com/t/380929 Minor die clash. It's a bit hard to see in the picture.
1965 http://goccf.com/t/380821 Die clash.
1967 http://goccf.com/t/380824 Die clash.
1970 D http://goccf.com/t/381000 Lots of Machine Doubling and a few letters got pinched on the back.
1971 D Spikehead SKH-1c-1971D-13 http://goccf.com/t/380992
1973 D http://goccf.com/t/381042 I thought it was another die clash, but it turns out that it was recurring die subsidence.
1980 D http://goccf.com/t/381238 Struck Through Grease.
1982 LMC Small Date Zinc (Spikehead) http://goccf.com/t/381286
1982 LMC Small Date Copper (Reverse Double Die Crack, Possibly Full Roof) http://goccf.com/t/381287

http://goccf.com/t/381358 1982 D reverse die break

SKH-1c-1983-28 (Spike head)
SKH-1c-1983-41 (spike head)
46 of the 1983 cents had minor reverse die breaks (I didn't check if any were listed)
1984-1990 A few more minor die breaks and clashes.

1990 1 WDDO-003 http://goccf.com/t/381618 My very first DDO on September 2nd

Nothing much in the 1991s, just a couple minor die cracks.

I didn't find much in the 1991-1998 cents, until I came across my very first DDR yesterday.

That brings my total to 1 DDO and 1 DDR, ever since I join this website.

LMC 1998 P-1 Dr-001 Coppercoins http://goccf.com/t/382409


Edit - Plus a few minor die cracks among the other years.

The rest of the 5,000 cents weren't anything great, so I picked up 2 more boxes.

1 Customer wrapped and 1 mint sealed.

I opened the (customer wrapped) box first.

I pick out the wheat backs after I have everything sorted by weight.


So far I found,


9 Canadian
3 dimes
1 nickel (How? haha)

Plus, the 1 roll was taped shut on both ends and actually had 68 cents in it. 57 Lincoln cents, a Dime and 1 Canadian cent.

I also found a 2018 S Proof cent. http://goccf.com/t/382973

I have a strong feeling, that this customer wrapped box was part of a collection. The bank said that people have been bringing down tons of change lately.

Someone hand wrote BU on the top of the box, half of the rolls were "opened" mint rolls. A couple of the rolls themselves were written on, like a scratched out 23 with 33 beside it.

A lot of the coins, from the 60, 70, 80s, look like this 1957 D wheat back or better.

The 1957 D wheat back is an RPM.

Nice discovery. Sadly, reverse has some crud encroaching.

I didn't find much of anything else in that customer wrapped box, except a small pile of RPMs. There might have been a dozen total, but nothing great.


I'm starting to go through the mint wrapped box.
So far I found,

11 Wheat backs - 1938, 1941, 1944, 1945, 2x 1950 D, 1951 D, 2x 1955, 1958. I also found a 19xx, but it's too corroded and banged up to tell what the year is.

1 Canadian - 1980
