Pounded through about 2000 mostly circulated wheat cents this evening, finding very little. Too many coins in this collection are cleaned or cruddy. But I am down to about 4 2x2 slips left, so what I did find ended up in two stacks on the scope so some attribution to do later. This one, however, goes in a nickel 2x2 so can get it put away.

The 1952 roll had a lot of AU/UNC coins, which is far better than most were. Ended up a decent DDO-001 and this clip from the roll.

Nice one! I have to ask what's going on with the left wheat stalk?

Appears to be a die chip on the stalk--could be an optical aberration. Curious.

Thanks! And yeah that's just a minor die chip on the left wheat. Super common in this era and generally just ignore them unless needed as a marker for something. Here's a 1955-S I also found last night showing when they start to become interesting.

Both finds are very nice TB. 2000 in one night? You are a beast.
