Alright so I got another $25 of pennies and I can't say I'm happy with the results. $25 in pennies yields just 3 wheats. Hopefully I can have better luck in the future!

Thanks! Looks pretty good. You are still beating the odds. I once searched through $100 in pennies and only got about 10 wheats or so

Another $25 in pennies down and I cannot complain about this box! Though it started off slow, I ended up with 11 wheats in the end as well as a young head canadian cent. One of the wheats was a teens wheatie, but I have yet to identify the last digit of the date, so I will work on that and keep you guys updates. Thanksgiving break starts tommorow, so I should be much more active in the next week or so. As always, the totals are posted below.

Scott_holmes you should really take your time and look at every coin. You're surely missing errors by not doing so. But if that's not your thing.....

GOD bless the circulating coinage of the East Coast! I returned to boston for thanksgiving vacation and boy what a difference! Through $65 in pennies some highlights included a 1901 Indian Head cent, 3 teens pennies, 3 20's pennies, and a whole host of other good finds! Stay posted, as I will try to get some more coins to look through while I'm here, though it may be tough with the holidays. As always, thanks for the support!

WOW!! Thank you for the update. Maybe, if you don't have time to go through the coins this weekend, buy about $100, and bring them home with you. Search them when you have time. Seemed to give you good luck!
