The rest of the 5,000 cents weren't anything great, so I picked up 2 more boxes.

1 Customer wrapped and 1 mint sealed.

I opened the (customer wrapped) box first.

I pick out the wheat backs after I have everything sorted by weight.


So far I found,


9 Canadian
3 dimes
1 nickel (How? haha)

Plus, the 1 roll was taped shut on both ends and actually had 68 cents in it. 57 Lincoln cents, a Dime and 1 Canadian cent.

I also found a 2018 S Proof cent. http://goccf.com/t/382973

I have a strong feeling, that this customer wrapped box was part of a collection. The bank said that people have been bringing down tons of change lately.

Someone hand wrote BU on the top of the box, half of the rolls were "opened" mint rolls. A couple of the rolls themselves were written on, like a scratched out 23 with 33 beside it.

A lot of the coins, from the 60, 70, 80s, look like this 1957 D wheat back or better.

The 1957 D wheat back is an RPM.

Nice discovery. Sadly, reverse has some crud encroaching.

I didn't find much of anything else in that customer wrapped box, except a small pile of RPMs. There might have been a dozen total, but nothing great.


I'm starting to go through the mint wrapped box.
So far I found,

11 Wheat backs - 1938, 1941, 1944, 1945, 2x 1950 D, 1951 D, 2x 1955, 1958. I also found a 19xx, but it's too corroded and banged up to tell what the year is.

1 Canadian - 1980
