estimated 1.85 billion coins - that's about 1 in 185 (0.54%).
Coins are randomly seeded in bags going to the Federal Reserve - I'm sure many bags get none.
No 2019-W in any U.S. Mint offering (BU rolls or bags).
Only the balistic bags sent to the coin terminals
Right. Was asking if we thought ALL 2019 ballistic bags get a scoop. Got a new box of quarters with all shiny new coins as enders. 19 rolls showing 2019 Lowell, 17 rolls showing 2018 Cumberland Island, and 14 rolls showing obverse on ends. Hope to find a W. I'll update after the grandkids and I go through them. Hopefully start this weekend.
Results: No "W" Mint Mark Quarters. All BU "P"
Of the 19 rolls showing Lowell on the end, 5 of the rolls had 1 Cumberland Island coin in each roll. The remaining 14 rolls were solid Lowell.
Of the 17 rolls showing Cumberland Island on the end, 1 roll had 1 Lowell coin, 1 roll had 38 Lowell coins, and 1 roll had 39 Lowell coins. The remaining 14 rolls were solid Cumberland Island.
Of the 14 rolls showing obverse on end, 7 rolls were solid Lowell, and 7 rolls were solid Cumberland Island
Lowell = 1,113 coins
Cumberland Island = 887 coins
While all the coins are BU, Oddly enough, 4 random Lowell coins, from 4 different rolls, have substantially different quality on the obverse. Looks like they may have been on the floor of the mint or something.
In my pics, You can see that the obverses are very different, while the reverses look comparably similar. The coins on the bottom row are for comparison.
We all get so wrapped up in the magic of coins that we forget all about the giant industrial processes that get them into your hands...
At least with like M&Ms we don't save them and slab them and such. during my road trip last Saturday I bought a bag of white chocolate ones. And there was a double sized one in the bag. never crossed my mind to call it a twice struck candy take a photograph and ask you guys is it rare...
