    The fellow had to have $4 for the lot.

    I'm familiar with wheaties, as I grew up with them and have, somewhere, about 25 pounds of 'em rolled from way long time ago, some of them Dad's hoard. When I find 'em (any day, now...) they'll appear here.

    Are the parenthetic figures adjacent each year the mint-run totals? That seems to make sense. None appear to have been cleaned; I haven't looked at any of them critically for condition or grade.

    Your comments are all welcome, folks! wlw

    In 'millions', yes. Nice pickup and find. :)

    Eh, for $4 you can't go wrong.
    The numbers in parenthesis are the mintages (or rather rounded mintages)

    I'm interested in the 1931 slots. I know the older albums went P-S-D instead of today's P-D-S, but I wonder why that one year went S-P-D? RARE COLLECTIBLE ALBUM ERROR!

    Edit: $4? Heck yeah. Good find.

    I don't see the S on the 1924-S.
    1933-D is nice, but I can see the coin.

    Bad eye! Ooops, Meow thought you meant the slot.

    I see a light spot where the S would be. At this size and resolution, that's the best I'd expect.

    Meow would have bought that for $4 too. Meow bought a wheat penny album like it, but is certain Meow will never come close to filling it CRH.

    I don't think so. I saw that quite often in the way back days.

    At $4.00 you did great. The coins alone are worth that price but then again, so is the album itself.

    Just in this album, or in others? I don't think I've ever seen an album that put Philly anywhere but the first position.

    Actually it's two albums, and neither are in great shape. But they do hold them coppers!

    1924-S is there; sorry about the crummy resolution on the mass pics...I just wanted to give y'all an idea of what I found.

    Anyone want better specific shots, speak up...I can manage that. wlw

    Interestingly, there are only two back-side finger-nail marks showing that coins were removed after insertion. These appear to be just as they were originally inserted. wlw

    I think I have to go through some of my old albums. I might be wrong, but it seems that the sequence was not consistent. I am thinking about S and D being switched, not Philly. I'll have to get back to you on that.
