    I do not have a photo to share. What value would you put on an unopened 1943 10,000 wheat cent canvas bag from the mint, original? Im not sure about the mint yet.

    nothing, since I am very sure that the mint made then in $50 bags, and not $100 bags.

    Probably worth more for the copper. What would a person do with 10000 1943 wheat cents ? If this was a mix of unopened rolls from various years well then I would find it interesting. Still a nice find. Pull all the high MS and cash the rest in. oops!! these are the steel cents are they not ?

    that would be very valuable, and would destroy the market.

    So you are saying there are 10,000 steelies in a bag, all MS or at least AU?
    Depending on the mint, IDK $5,000?
    If they are circulated $500- $1000.
    And now you have the task of selling 10,000 steelies. GL to that.

    - edited - $700.00-$800.00 - edited - Probably wouldn't go any more than that. As pointed out by @Michael K.... The job of selling it off would be quite the task.

    If this is legit, Rolls of AU+ steelies sell for $40+ each. $40 x 200 rolls = $8,000. They would sell reasonably quickly if you dropped the price/roll. - edited -

    What makes you think they are in BU or AU condition? They are 1943 STEEL cents and they're in a Mint sealed bag, as you stated. They have been in storage for 75 years. Under what condition? Probably all rusted by now.

    If they are in nice condition, then flooding the market would cause the price to drop. Not worth the risk.

    Did you just say worth more for the copper, on STEEL CENTS?

    I would buy it, bury it in my back yard and when I'm 90 ill go back and "find" a new hoard of steelies. What a "discovery"

    Now that I remember these are the steel cents , You may be able to use them as a promotion to help sell other items . For every item add a UNC steel 43 as a bonus . I think trying to sell these one at a time maybe a very long process , and a person may croak long before they are sold. A person may be able to roll these and sell off the rolls much easier , and turn a tidy profit for UNC coins . This way a person would only have to make 200 sales. I am sure there are a lot of people that would purchase a UNC roll of these steel cents including dealers that would in turn sell them off individually. Like @coin0709 said there are ways to make a good profit if these are in nice UNC condition, and not be subjected to moisture at any time.

    When do we get to see a photo of the condition of these coins?
    I am skeptical that 10,000 exist in AU/MS condition in one lot.
    They could be Chinese fakes.
    If they really do exist they are probably circulated and just over hyped
    as being in a "sealed mint bag".
    Circulated bulk buy I stand by my .05-.10 each $500- $1000.
    Uncirculated, or mint state, then you might have something desirable.

    How they were stored is everything.

    In the slightly wrong environment, they are a ugly rusted mess.
    Or they were in a perfect environment and look awesome.

    It's impossible to give a good price estimate without knowing.

    I think the bag would need to be opened to determine a true value. If they are all rusted then they would only be worth face value.
