    It has been a while since I seen a roll like this. We use to get them all the time when the state quarter program started. Full roll of Massachusetts state quarters. Im not sure if I want to keep it as is or open too see if there are any errors. I had a customer give it too me I asked where he got them from he said it was his grandmothers that passed away and he didn't want them cause he was broke and they aren't worth much if any over face. At least he checked the value before spending unlike some. Photo really doesn't show it bur the enders have a nice tone to them. 20200401_174059.jpg 20200401_175113.jpg 20200401_175613.jpg

    Oh I can't stand rolls like that! The ends of tone pretty fast in them.

    I always loved these rolls because it made spotting silver and blank planchet easier at work. When we got a fresh batch of coins in I would go back asap to look :)

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I already see an error. You have a New Hampshire quarter at the end of your full roll of Massachusetts coins :D (sorry, couldn't resist)

    You could check for errors, and then store it in a coin tube.

    Or you could do an experiment. Keep the coins in the plastic and see how the toning develops. Check it every month or so and remove the wrapper if you get something really nice or It starts to turn ugly. It's a longshot, but you might get nice toning on the end coins at some point in the future.

    Or spend them. It will be a long time before they will be worth more than face.

    Touche, you are right. I don't know what made me think Massachusetts lol. Anyway I opened them and besides having a progressive die break on the bottom left of the bust to rim and a odd what appears to be grease fill on the reverse ,which I will post at another time, there wasn't much else.
