to CCF. I voted yes,I once got a full box of wheats. I average 10-50 per box and I go through one box per week.

Not a box but my best haul was 52 solid rolls of copper wheats and 2 solid rolls of steel wheats at one bank visit.
Actually, credit must be given to my wife, she made the buy.

I'm flabbergasted myself! My average is 6-9 per box.

At most, I've gotten 24. I average about maybe 13 to 18 every box.

One can fall into 50 or better wheat cents per 50 rolls (one box), but's it's not a frequent occurrence. I average about 4-6 per 50 rolls.

My best was 17 in one box, though I tend to average 6-10. Man I'd be thrilled to find 50+ in one hunt

I used to keep a spreadsheet of what I find in each box, but I stopped doing that in 2017. According to what I have, my best was 45 in one box.

My worst (not including the two boxes of 2017-P OBW rolls I got) was 6 in a box.

My box came from a credit union in a rural town, and was an obvious dump, almost all of the rolls were wheats. Including 2 x 22d's

I'm doing a challenge right now where I look through 1 million pennies and, after 130 boxes of pennies, I average a little more than 10 a box (10.75 to be exact). My best box so far has been 38 wheats, but I'm only doing bank-wrapped coins, so my results don't usually vary that much.

Our best is around 80, an obvious dump

My guess? is that they are all culls of common dates in lower grades, from a CRH'er.

No profit to be made by trying to sell them, so may as well re circulate them. Let some other CRH'er have a go at them instead.

I have deliberately re circulated lower valued numismatically interesting coins myself. Let someone else have some fun.
