That proof has spent some time in the wild. Nice save!

Thanks, and yeah, it has spent some time in the wild for sure! I always try to eye the date and mintmark on every coin I go through... first time I looked at it I almost tossed it aside, but my brain said "something looked weird with that one", so I went right back to it, picked it up and then put my 16x glass to it just to be sure.

So I went to my usual banks last Wednesday... I usually don't get pennies from this particular branch as they normally don't get too many customer wrapped rolls... well, the teller tells me a man had just brought in seven old-looking rolls of them... so she grabbed them for me along with 13 other CWR which were sitting on the counter that had just been brought in by another customer...


So I knew I had lots of wheaties... well, it turned out to be a total of 302 of them.

Roll 1: 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919, 1919-S, 1920 (2), 1925 (2), 1926 (2), 1927, 1928, 1929, 1929-D, 1929-S (5), 1930, 1930-D, 1930-S, 1934 (5), 1934-D, 1935 (4), 1935-D, 1935-S (3), 1936 (6), 1936-D, 1936-S (2), 1937 (4)

Roll 2 (Pictured below): 1909, 1916, 1917, 1918 (2), 1919 (2), 1920 (3), 1925-S, 1926, 1927, 1927-S, 1928, 1928-S, 1929, 1929-D, 1930 (3), 1934 (2), 1934-D, 1935 (3), 1935-S (4), 1936 (5), 1936-D, 1936-S (2), 1937 (3), 1937-D, 1939 (5), 1939-S (2)


Roll 3: 1939 (9), 1939-S (5), 1940, 1940-D (2), 1940-S (7), 1942 (10), 1942-D (4), 1942-S (10), 1952-D, 1952-S

Roll 4: 1951-D (11), 1951-S (39)

Roll 5: 1951-D (14), 1951-S (36)

Roll 6: 1953 (2), 1953-D (7), 1953-S (41)

Roll 7: 1944-D, 1956-D (the rest of the roll was mostly 1960-D Lg. Date Memorial Cents).

Yeah, a nice little wheatie hoard!

I went to another bank and purchased 1,000 more cents... 800 were CWR and 200 were S&S MWR... I didn't really pay much attention to the MWR until a couple of days ago when I inspected them and noticed there was one BU ender of each of the 2009 Lincoln Cent Designs. I flipped them over and they were ALL 2009 Philadelphia minted coins! Considering that I had found less than 100 of the four designs from Philadelphia COMBINED up until then, this was truly a great find for me! I had thought more than once of buying a roll set of these on eBay... well, they found me!


Needless to say, this was my best Cent CRH day of the year! Finds like these are what keep me going.

I'll say! Made me a happy camper! That 1925-S in the picture grades a full extra fine (full wheat ears) - a $15 coin!(note: the reverses of wheaties with full wheat ears are very hard to photograph, in case you didn't know)...

Yes, it was... and for me to have it TWICE in the same day? Well, maybe I should've bought a lottery ticket!

Thanks, guys!

As I told one of the tellers "it's about being in the right place at the right time" and also being persistent... The set of BU 2009-Ps goes for about $20 + shipping on eBay. I'll call that one an early Christmas present to me since it's a set I've wanted ever since I started getting back into CRH 5 1/2 years ago.

Nice pick up there on the 2009's. Wonder how long that was sitting at that branch. Wish I could get some rolls from my bank. Finally have a bank with a free coin counter to dump at, and I can't get any change.

I got a roll of cents from a bank in Boston on December 20. I don't usually get rolls of cents, but I wanted some copper ones to roll in penny machines as the zinc type go all streaky and brittle when you elongate them.

In the end I never needed them, and I brought the roll back to the UK unopened.

I've just looked through it and have upgraded several of the coins in my collection. There were 14 copper cents of which the oldest was a 1964D in about EF with traces of mint lustre in the lettering. There were 1976, 1979 and 1981 pennies with almost full mint lustre, but after the 1981 the next oldest coin in decent condition was a 2008. Nothing particularly exciting but at least I've got a few more coppers to squash next time I go to the States!

NumisRob -- And 500 years from now when archeologists are excavating your neighborhood, they'll marvel at finding US coinage buried in the rubble of a long lost town.

I doubt if any Zincolns will survive that long!
