Conder101, that surprises me. I would of thought for sure that they would be in abundant there.

Well considering that one coin represents 100% of the 2017 cents I've seen so far I guess you could call that an abundance.

Where I live is 40 miles from anywhere so what coins we have in circulation tend to stay there and the only influx we get are those spent by someone passing through or those broght back in pocket change byt hose that go to other cities to shop. During the entire State Quarter run we only had one bank bring in a box of quarters (one box of Massachusetts) and we only got one box of President dollars (Washington). Coins just don't trickle in here very fast. There are still some 2015 and 2016 issues I haven't seen yet. Still haven't seen all the designs for the Territory State Quarters and they were eight years ago.

Conder101, you bring up a good point, one I did not take into consideration
Living in a rural area would indeed decrease the odds of circulating coinage. Without the population and commerce of a big city I can understand why! Thank you for that insight!

I finally got my first 2017-P pennies! I live near Phoenix and we get nothing but "D" coins here, I have yet to find a 2017-P cent here. I was in NYC the past few days and finally came across a few 2017-P's. Yee Haw!

That 2017P is sweet actually. 12 months of corrosion. Pretty amazing.

The abundance gets bigger, got a second one. Also another 17 P dime, I'm up to six 2017 coins now.

Now let me add something else to the equation. What if the mint doesn't add a mint mark for Philadelphia in 2018. I bet the 2017 P's will be even more scarce west of the Mississippi.

Central Alabama here. I would guess I see about 80% P's and 20% D's. I have searched 6 boxes of cents this year and I have put together a roll of the best finds. I was in Texas (DFW area) for a few days this summer and brought home many shinny D mints. I assume most of the P's stay east of the Mississippi River and the D's west. I wish the Armadillos would have stayed on the west side of the river. Darn varmints, (V-mints)!

From what I have read earlier this year, it will be a one-year only run.

"According to Tom Jurkowsky, director of the United States Mint's Office of Corporate Communications, the 2017-P Lincoln cent was minted in recognition of the Mint's 225th anniversary on April 2."

I've never understood the rationale of the Philadelphia Mint not putting a mint mark on pennies.
