Picked up 2 boxes of uncirculated 2019 Wilderness quarters from my wife's bank. I was just shocked how many West Points there were.. Last week I only found 1 in a box, this week box 1 has 18, box 2 had 11, total 29 going back tomorrow to pick up another box or two and hope my luck holds up.

Very great find! I had 14 rolls of the Lowell's and they produced 18 W's in total.

Thanks, just proves my point that bank tellers are hoarding these rolls/boxes for sales on eBay...Not what the mint wanted.....

If that was true, then why did they just give them to Catskillcoins?

What I suspect is they are still putting them in the bags like they did are the beginning. Take a full or nearly full ballistic bag and put a scoop od two of W's in on top. If they do that, when the bags are upended into the rolling machines the first few boxes will be very heavy in W coins, then they peter out and the rest of the boxes don't have any at all. That's why back at the beginning I said they needed to rig up a feeding mechanism the just trickled them into the post strike production conveyor system. That way they would end up fairly evenly distributed through out the bag instead of lumped all in one place and just present in a relatively small number of boxes.

@ Condor101...his post says " picked-up...... from my wife's bank" I read into that as his wife works for the bank, how many husbands and wives have accounts at different banks..

Who knows but I would suspect it isn't that uncommon. I know my brother and his wife used different banks. I would think it might depend on bank location, whether they had accounts at separate banks before they were married, whether they pooled all their finances together or if they had both joint and separate accounts (household and personal, or possibly a business account)

How about it catskillcoins, does your wife work at the bank?

Conder101, yes, my wife works at a bank but she is not a teller, Second I ordered boxes of quarters for roll hunting, I was just lucky they were what they were. There is no way knowing ahead of time what is in the boxes until you open them.
