Hi! I'm new here. I haven't been collecting long and buy boxes of Lincoln pennies from my bank. I'm only on my fourth box and I noticed it was sealed differently and when I opened it it's all brand new 2019 (Philadelphia) cents. Do you normally cash them in and get a different box or are they worth sorting through for errors?

Hey Sb1229! Welcome aboard.

Personally I don't do that (at least not yet), but I saw a YouTube video last week at "Coin Help U" talking about going through pennies to find high quality examples like MS67 that might be valuable. It was kinda interesting.

to CCF. I search on average one box of cents weekly. It doesn't matter to me if they are new or not. You should look for errors and varieties as well as high grade ones. Good luck,and if you find some good stuff post pics please.

Thank you for the replies! I will look up that video but II'll really have to research what's a good grade because I've only focused on copper penny errors so far. I have found two 1982 d small dates but they were not copper. Maybe one day! Lol

I was getting boxes to search- mainly cents and nickels. Evidently, my bank was a distribution point for new coins, I would occasionally get boxes of new coins. I wouldn't search them; I would sell the rolls on EBay. I sold them in groups of 5 and 10 rolls. People seemed happy and I made a bit of profit to put back into buying coins. If I recall correctly, they sold better at the beginning of the year. I guess people were still in need of their annual uncirculated rolls.
