Thanks Spruett for the good word. Ya, that's my listing on the bay. If anyone has questions, PM me, I'll try to answer them. I've purchased bulk wheat cents to the tune of over 30,000...I catalogued each order on spreadsheets, know EXACTLY what was in each lot of
, er, coins. Most all orders of 1000, fell into a mix of 4-11% of the coins were pre 1940, meaning 90% or more were the 40's and 50's...each group was mostly all the "commons" is what I call them. 40's were P mints, 50's D mints, 1934-39 P's, then maybe a handful of p-mint teens/twenties. I can't say I never found any "good ones" , 09vdb and a 26s, is all.
I searched all over USA for truly "unsearched", ain't gonna happen folks. Only one
time did I "luck out", found a fellow who bought wheats from his craft sale business for other items. Cost was $75 plus shipping, first order was 53% pre 40's 22D, 6-09vdb's, couple 26S. Got excited, (greedy), bought two more batches, $164.00 or so, those were just about the worst screw job I've had, less than 4% were pre-40's, had ROLLS of 56D, 57D, 58D. DISGUSTING! Most of the bulk was bought for $56, and suplimented with bags of 20 "good ones" for $5 a pop. That's how I built my personal, grandkids and for sale collections and bulk offers. The one mentioned I "built", read the description please. Any questions, just ask!
