I picked up a box from my local bank of 2019 MS cents. I opened a couple rolls and am holding back 8 rolls for future use, so I'm left with 40 bank wrapped rolls that I am not sure what to do with. Some sellers on eBay are selling them for $2-$5 per roll, but I am not sure I want to go through the hassle at would present.
Choices are: a) return them to the bank for other (non 2019) rolls b) hold on to all of them c) trade them here on CCF (I would trade them one for one for unopened bank wrapped rolls of Canadian cents). I am open to personal trade suggestions- PM me. d) ?
To be honest about it, I sincerely doubt my personal ability to distinguish between the hightest grades. The couple rolls I opened had (drying?) spots easily seen in the fields, but overall, beautiful high luster coins. Holding them in my cotton gloved hands was amazing! Very few clash marks, but lots of "spots." Once back in circulation, they'll only get worse from here, sadly.
A box of pennies isn't a lot of money to sit on. Go get another box and every few rolls go through a roll of the 2019's. Slim chance but you never know what you'll find. If you have the right box, you could get several of the same error.

It would probably take more than one to trade for a single Bank wrapped roll of Canada Small Cents. Canada stopped minting them back in 2012, so any unopened rolls are 7 years old or older. I have been sitting on 2 unopened rolls (clear plastic) of 2012 Canada cents myself. Got em as a bonus when I bought some coins from someone in Canada.
Yes, Canada stopped minting pennies in 2012, but as any Canadian would tell you, they are still very plentiful. And with an exchange rate of 1 CAD=.756 U.S., a one for one deal makes my offer more than fair.
