2nd place- cpfull- $793.83 over by $10.65
3rd place- insideout- $742 under by $41.18

Prizes are as follows-
1st-10 BU wheats different dates
2nd-8 BU wheats different dates
3rd-5 BU wheats different dates

Please send me your addresses and any request for dates!

Well its that time of year again, time to take back my change. I already stated to take back some of the change but broke the coin counting machine. I guess it does not like "wet" change. Some of the change came out of my work truck and was pretty dirty so I decided to wash it off. Anyways here is a pic of the pile-


The contest- Guess how much change is in the pile.
The reward- Still working on that, I will probably do a couple of prizes, TBA.(thinking of some foreign from the pile and some BU wheats.)
Time frame- Until Saturday December 6 8 PM EST.
Open to all members with at least 50 post.


Hints- There is everything from searched presidential rolls, cull and dirty wheats, halfs, box's of cents from Chucks project. I have done this a couple times and the least it has ever been was $600, the most was 1,400. The towel is a large sized Ralph Lauren one. If I had to guess on weight, 100lbs.

Good Luck!

Edit:
Some interesting finds including 49-D,60-D,51 dimes (I guess the machine does not like silver!) Some of these I have no ideal what they are or where I got them.

Oh ya! Handfuls of them. When I search wheat rolls I pull out the messed up ones and well worn ones. I also look at it as a primer for a future collector. Someone finds the wheat and it sparks something.

did you check those guys for 1999-2000 wide AMs


To be honest, not really(maybe 60%). I used to check all of my change but have got burnt out on it lately.
