    I started coin roll searching this afternoon and the first roll was an odd shade of red...I had never seen that shade of red before ( that I remember). It was a cent roll, and I opened it up and found 14 Wheat Cents!!!!!...….FORTEEN....That has never happened to me before....
    Anyone else ever get lucky like that?

    That's pretty awesome, I never had that happen with cents before. I think I was averaging around 5 wheats a box a couple years ago. I did however find a couple rolls like that searching half dollars :)

    I found an entire roll's worth (50 coins) of silver Roosevelt dimes in a Coinstar reject slot once.
    I don't think I'll ever get another find as good for the rest of my natural life.

    Solid red is typically an older roll. I always ask for sold color Customer wrapped rolls because those are typically older coins. I have got lucky before by getting solid rolls of wheat cents and one time I got over 150 wheat cents in a few Customer wrapped rolls with the bulk of them being pre 1940. Anything can be found as long as you keep searching. Happy hunting.:)

    On 2 different occasions within the past year, a teller called me to say a customer had turned in rolls of cents that had wheats in them. The first batch was 12 solid rolls of wheats except for one odd Memorial - 599 wheaties!!!!! The second batch was similar in production. On both occasions the coins belonged to a collector who died and family members cashed them in. As said many times before in this forum, having good relationships with your tellers is vital for getting the good stuff.:D

    And yes, they were in the older red wrappers.

    You found wheats in half dollar rolls? Rolling machine must have been on the fritz. Bummer to cost you 50 cents apiece. :wacky:

    I got 10 rolls from a small bank a while back. One roll was filled with 1946s and 1951s LWC's pretty sure I got someones CRH rejects with that one. After I looked though it I put em back in the roll for safe keeping.
