Picked up a new box today. Got it home and realized it was filled and resealed with customer wrapped rolls. AGGGGGGG Firgured what the heck and started into them, turned out to be pretty good rolls. Higher proprotion of red 70's so far and more earlier date, modern zinc BU's. Also, lots of coppers, higher ratio than Brinks rolls. Out of 8 rolls, I pulled about 10 red 70's in AU like these:



Maybe there's some Wheats in this box, looks like someones old stash so far.

To Badthad and the rest of you experts, let me ask this. I have now gone through $45.00 in rolls. I have pulled about 10 wheats and the rest mems. The way I am separating them is 1982 and older, 1983 and newer, and the wheats. Should I be separating them differently? Should I be separating them into more categories? Should I be checking the 2000s for wide AMs? I have found several what I call "shiny" 60s and 70s and just put them in my "copper" bin. I have no idea on how to grade other than "brown" or "shiny". I have no coin shop to go to so I can learn. So am I maximizing my time just separating them into the three categories?

If you read Chuck's thread on searching in the error forum section, you will see he is very thorough and methodical, but his goals are different from mine. It's a very good thread!

It all depends on your goals/desires. I recycle about 80% or so of my bank coins. All I can tell you is what I look for and keep. I'm not completely infatuated with all the die varieties....it's too time consuming for me. Here's what I'm looking for:

1) 98/99/2000 Wide AM's
2) 1992D Close AM
3) Gem quality BU's in all years, must be MS65+, well struck and no distracting marks. At some point, I'm going to put together BU roll sets with these.
4) Coppers, I'm keeping the coppers for the future. I think the price of copper will rise again and these will be worth at least 2x face in melt value.
5) Special coins for my collection, i.e. full red coppers, Grease Filled Dies, neat toning, anything else I find interesting. On a side note, I only have about 30 of these after searching about 15 boxes. I'm real picky!
6) 1972 DDO, 1984 doubled-ear, 1995 DDO

IMO, you have to pretty selective searching these or you'll find yourself absolutely buried in coins. There's billions and billions of Lincolns!

I found an 1887 cent, an 1863 civil war token, a 1925S cent in EF, and a number of doubled dies and repunched mintmarks searching through bank rolls. Sometimes you end up with rolls that sat in a closet for decades before finally being turned in.

As for my sorting method, I do it to ensure I get all the varieties out of the mix. I don't just do it to separate the metals. But if you've already got the coins, it makes sense to check them over for anything that's out of the ordinary. I've made a supplemental living doing this for years now. It doesn't make much, but when you're poor to start with, an extra $100 per month adds significantly.

So, with my 5000 pennies today, I found these intersting (as in grade) cents. I saw that BadThad (I frogot, but I suppose it's him) had some of these shiny pennies from the 70's too, so I guess they're somewhat uncommon.

So what are these called?

And is the 1995 what is called "rainbow toning?"

Just finished a box. Along with the assortment of reds from the 60s and 70s, found these wheats:
1926D
1942
1942D
1944
1945S
1946
1950D
1951D
1957D
1958D

Also half a dozen Canadian's.

I understand there are 7 or 8 different 1982 styles. Can anyone link me to a good visual and explanation of the differences?
