I found an 1858 Flying Eagle cent in a Lincoln cent roll about 2 years ago. I've haven't done much coin roll hunting since then, just now returning after about a 2 year absence!

Best,

Wow! Can you post a picture?

I was pleasantly surprised at the Washington comm too! It has the S mintmark, but it doesn't look much like a proof, no luster but little if any wear. But then my mint packaged version lacks prooflike qualities as well.

BTW-Thanks for the advice on getting rolls, Lookin'!

I also started very recently, but these are my best finds.

Oldest

Penny- 1937

Nickel- 1957

Most interesting

Penny- 1972 Clipped Planchet (One of my first 5 rolls, I think)

That is it.
