BadThad:

Congrats on the 2000 wide AM! I have yet to find one myself.

Here is a better picture of the reverse of my 1922-D. I took it with the flash. Hopefully you are able to discern enough details to properly grade it. How can you determine a coin is an early die state, when it is below AU? I would think a lot of the details would be worn off making it difficult to make that determination.



Also, I have been finding several "S" mint cents (69, 70, 72, 74) in bank boxes that are BU fully red. I've found >20 in different boxes. It's very odd since these are nearly 40 year old coins circulating with cartwheels on them. Anybody else finding "S" mints that are heads and tails above any other 60's or 70's cents?
Here is an example of 2 pieces I pulled yesterday:





I also wanted to thank you for your Lincoln cent spreadsheet. The comments you made are very insightful.

I determine die state by experience, lol. The 1922-D is very easy out of all of them, they over-used the dies in the production of 90% of them. You're 22-D has good detail on the reverse too! I'd give this a solid VF-25.

You're VERY lucky with the S mint Memorials, those are rare to find in circulation, especially in red. CONGRATS!

Way to go rkp and BadThad.

I'm finding more Wheats in rolls lately, and alot of coppers.

Came up with another 1998 WAM yesterday from a customer rolled box.

This will be a good year for 'roll hunters', if nothing else!

The only thing I've seen lately is some older BU's and maybe a hair more copper....same pace on wheat cents, maybe the next box I got a few days ago. This great coin dump of 2009 is pretty good for us cent hunters. This could be the last great run for hoarding copper. I predict copper cents will be mostly gone from circulation in a few years.

For the first time since I joined this forum I stopped at a local bank and bought two Lincoln Cent rolls. When I smiled and asked the teller for "two rolls of circulated pennies, please", she gave me a glare that I didn't care for. Unfriendly towards coin collectors?

The only keepers from the 100 pennies I scanned was a 2007 Canadian cent, a couple of 1969D, a 1964, a fairly nice 1959 and that was it. A smattering of 1970's era coins not worth keeping. I'm not discouraged tho as it was a very inexpensive ($1) way to spend a few hours. I'll try it again.

I know it's not in the best of shape but thought I would still post it on here.

Thanks. I was thinking about cleaning it but not sure if I should or just leave it alone?
