Greetings everyone.

I work in a grocery store in northeast Georgia. I've come across something Very Interesting, and I have seen no articles online of the US Mint doing this to alleviate any coin shortage.



From a Till on saturday, and from a full cleanly wrapped Loomis roll of quarters, I have found what appears to be P D and S 2017 and 2018 uncirculated coins.

Highly polished, proof quality shine plus the typical S coins with the wider flat face edge. From the roll there were about 1-15 each P, D and S, D the most, S next, and P the least and most common looking with the least polish. Of the coins released for each of the years there were 1-5 of each national park coin of each of the mint marks, plus 1 2021 Washington Crossing quarter, and 1 2022 Maya Anjelou.

Has anyone else seen this in their change from stores or Loomis wrapped quarters?

I have bought online a 2018 uncirculated P and D set combo from eBay to confirm my findings, but the S coins are the curios of the bunch,

Sounds like it could be a collection dump.

Pictures of some examples might be helpful.

The mint did produce business quality 'S' mint quarters. I think they were not intended for circulation, but I'm sure some roll and coins were put out in the wild by people for people to find.

I hope you'll continue sharing your finds and collection with us!

As for the question, I'd agree with the others that someone put mint issued only (S- San Francisco) coins into circulation. Perhaps the P & D as well. Always nice to find these in circulation!

Thank you for the welcome! This is the first coin forum I am posting to after collecting coins for 4ish years now. Working front end in a grocery store helps! My first one really was a 1896 Morgan I got for $1!

OK! Fun stuff!

So I was able to find a Third roll of these coins in the Customer Service collection of rolls, another clean Loomis roll of quarters. I took photos of the ends, opening, and it's dispersion of coins. Here is the list.

I will post photos after I post this so I don't forget. I have the coins laid out in front of me.

P
2018 Voyagers x7, 2018 Cumberland Island x4, 2019 Lowell x2, 2022 Maya Anjelou x2

D
2017 Ellis Island X2, 2018 Voyagers, 2018 Cumberland Island x2, 2018 Apostle Island x7

S
2017 Ellis Island, 2017 George Rogers Clark x6, 2018 Pictured Rocks, 2018 Apostle Island x3, 2018 Block Island x2

The main oddity that makes these soo special is that there's P, D, and S in the wrapper, and mixed with a few 2021 and 2022 coins, being that coin distribution is soo naturally regionally seperated. It is a treat to find all three mints in one wrapper, especially since the D and S mints are soo polished that they seem to come from special dies.

Given that two rolls were perfectly 2017/2018/2019 with a few 2021/2022 mixed in, the question now becomes: Did the Mint just pull from stored coins in stock and mix them all up, or did they employ those saved dies and press new blanks?

These are all from the roll I opened on May 2nd, cataloged above.

If you want me to post the few photos I have from the rolls and coins collected in April 30th and May 1st, let me know.

While at the store with multiple light sources I took this photo to demonstrate the polish shine vs, the dingy circulated Texas quarter end.


Here it starts. It was this end that closed the full wrapper as this D coin had the circular scrape from the wrapping machine, though quite faint.


Here you can see some of the coins as they came out from the Loomis wrapper. Beautiful new shine, especially indicative of special dies. Almost no marks on surfaces, and very few bag marks too.


Here is the Layout of the coins with P, D, and S, and the number of types in group. (I just noticed this photo is upside down)


An example with a 2022 Maya to show S mark and edge. Not great quality images of these.



The opened wrapper to show original end wrapping on far end.


Each in it's own safe zip bag.

Nice assortment of Quarters for sure.
First off, are the little bags PVC Free? If not, I would suggest placing them into better containment packages. (PVC will ruin your coins over time)

The mint itself would not hold or mix up coins from different Mint locations (as far as I know) My guess is that Loomis had collected the coins from different banks from all over the country, brought to a central holding facility then re packaged into their own (Loomis) paper rolls for re-distribution. That is where I would think that all the different mint coins got mixed up and blended together into one roll as you found them - just my opinion here - maybe a guess or two added in for good measure.

Definitely looks like a collection dump. I doubt the collector himself dumped them because they would probably have pulled the S mint coins. The S mint coins can be sold at a premium. So it was probably either a stolen collection or dumped by a non-collector who inherited or was given the collection.

Welcome to CC!

Agree with others, a dump by a collector, dealer or thief. My LCS doesn't want to mess with low-value common stuff so he routinely dumps stuff back into circulation.

Were there any coins older than 2017 in the rolls? Even if it was a collection dump (which remains my theory) I'd find it hard to believe the coins wouldn't be mixed with random other coins as they were being rolled.

Unless it was an absolutely massive collection.

Or the other random coins mixed in are the new 2022s

That's awesome! Must have been a large collector dump, theft, dealer. The rolls are tight and original looking so for them all to wind up together in a roll means a large quantity of coins were sent through the rolling machine together. Definitely a rare find in circulation rolls.
