In total I have looked through about 3 boxes worth and managed to find just over 100 wheats mostly 50's and 40's 7 or 8 1930's, and a few 1920's I have found a 1919 also. But the highlight of the wheat cents was a 1918 Wheat cent in XF condition its amazing. And I know this thread was just for pennies but I have to include my 1906 liberty head nickel I got from a nickel roll a few days ago, Sweet!

Yesterday I went through a box and found a 1922-D in F-VF. I saw it wheat side up and was expecting something in the 1940's. I also found a 1917 wheat in G-4 in the same box.

You need to post that coin in the variety/error forum. I don't know enough about this doubled die to comment.

Hey All;
Yesterday I pulled a totally blank planchet from a roll. The rim seems to be raised, and when looked at from the edge with a good cent, they both look the same. The weight is 2.49 grams, same as a zinc cent and is copper plated. Not REALLY knowing if it is a cent planchet, is it collectible? Opinions please. Thanks.

BadThad,

When I wrote the above post about the 1922-D, I didn't have the coin in front of me so I went off of memory when I came up with the grade. Turns out (now that I have the coin in front of me) that my memory was of me being very excited about finding a 1922-D in a roll which resulted in serious overgrading. In reality, the coin is probably no more than a VG, not the F-VF I claimed it to be previously. Oh well, you still can't beat buying a 22-D for 1 cent! :)

The reverse is a bit blurry, but some of the upper wheat lines are clearly separated on the coin.

No, you were correct, that's a VF coin. Look at the separation between the cheek and jaw, only VF and higher coins have that. Even with blurry pictures, I'd say that's about a VF25-30 coin.

Sweet, thanks for the upgrade BadThad! not too shabby pulling a $20 coin from a bank box. Proof that there are still some nice coins out there floating around in circulation (or in bank rolls anyways).

I forgot to mention another important fact on your coin, it's an EDS (Early Die State) 22-D. It has excellent details for this issue. The wear looks to be honest wear and not a lot of loss that is typically seen due to die state in the 22-D's. If you could take clear pics of the wheat tips, I could dial in the grade easier. This coin would likely fetch closer to $30 or higher because of the details.

Soooo....lucky YOU!

Time to rejoice! After countless boxes I FINALLY found a 2000 WAM....and it's an MS63ish one! It even cartwheels! How I could find two of the rarer 1998 WAM's before finding the common 2000 is beyond me.

Pretty funny, I've been so dismayed at the prospect of ever finding one, I actually tossed this into my junk pile. Then, I quickly realized....HEY DUMMY...that one WAS wide! LOL Took me a few minutes to fish it back out.
