At first I started putting the coins in 2"X2" flips so that I could work to find how many die sets the bag has. I put just under $5.00 in coin flips and then put them in 3-hole pages so I could sort them. When I got in the tubes, I emptied the bag. I filled all the tubes and had coins left over. After checking the total number of coins in the bag, my $50 mint sewn bag had $56.24 (plus or minus 25 or 30 cents.) Has anyone ever seen a bag with an extra 10%?
Second, 50 coins will not fit in the tubes. I can only get 48 in each tube. I tested the tubes with a fresh roll of coins from the bank and an old roll of cents and I can fill the tube and cap them with no problem. If I tried to put 50 of the '74-D coins in, the cap cannot make contact with the threads on the tube. By the way, the $56.00 + is counting 48 cents in each tube.
I also got a coin ANACS graded at MS66 RED with "OVERPOLISHED DIES" listed on the label.
I don't know where this bag will lead me, but I'm having so much fun with it! I'm finding lots of coins with the columns showing on the front even with the overpolish and lots of Lincoln on the reverse.
old post I know, but anfollow-up on this? I have a few from rolls.
Here is a pic.
