Sorry for the delay! One of the banks mis-ordered and I wasn't able to get any coins until yesterday. Here is the most recent update. I found 36 wheats in a batch of $100 in pennies, a number I can't complain about. Also wanted to mention that I found a 1923-S Lincoln cent a few boxes ago, which is actually a better date coin and sells for $5-$7 on eBay. You never know what you might find coin roll hunting! Speaking of which, its been a while since I found an Indian Head cent, so hopefully I'm due for one soon!

I am very sorry for the large gap between my posts. I have been dealing with a lot lately, and haven't found time to get to the bank. I do plan on going tomorrow, so look out for more updates. Below are the updates results after a recent $25 penny hunt. Thanks for the support!

A dissapointing box, but its still good to go through something. Also wanted to correct a previous error. My last post had a total of 34 1920's wheat cents. It actually should have been 33 in my last post and 34 in this post after the 1923-P cent I just pulled from a roll. Thanks for the support! I have $125 in pennies coming in on tuesday, so look out for updates then. Totals are below as always.

hfjacinto I intend to write a small book documenting my finds in detail as well as the journey to 1 million pennies. If I end up having enough coins, I might try to put together a full Wheat cent collection , but I'm not sure yet.

After a week and a half of no updates due to spring break, I am finally back and getting to it. My school has been canceled and is now online for at least the next month due to the corona virus, so I will be much more active here. I hope to do $200-$300 a week. Anyway, I picked up $100 in pennies and ended up with 53 wheats! Definitely happy with the results. thanks for the support. Totals below as always.
