Remember the 2017P cent?

    And what a big deal it was supposed to have been?

    I deal with two banks but it's still hard to get Fed-wrapped rolls.
    However, I asked today and they only had cent rolls. The teller brought up two trays ($20) of shrink-wrapped cents. So I took a tray ($10) home.
    When I opened a roll to search it, I noticed that all the rolls were 2017P.
    Not JUST 2017P rolls but GORGEOUS specimens.
    We are all familiar with the crappy coins the P sends out but these had fewer bag marks than Mint bags I've bought.

    So is it something about the shrink-wrapped rolls that sets them apart? Who rolls them this way--as opposed to paper wrappers?

    I searched six rolls before I got bored. Out of six rolls, I got a COMPLETE roll's worth of minor die cracks in the shield over Plorib. I'll guess this is a really rare error, lol?

    How many rolls would you all save?

    Thank you for your opinions.
    (BTW, NM the few 2020 cents in the photo.)

    So that's why the rolls are shrink-wrapped? My supermarket often has shrink-wrapped rolls in the extra bin in the cash drawer.

    Should I hot-foot it back to the bank and buy more rolls?

    Whenever I bought Mint rolls, they were wrapped in Commemorative paper. TY.

    YES! At least the quality of these strikes has made it worthwhile. I was able to pick out a full roll of--don't laugh--GEM BU's and a roll of the hairline die crack. The crack is insignificant, so I didn't bother to post a pic.

    I do remember and I had to buy a couple rolls from each mint. Banks used to have the uncirculated coin rolls all the time.

    Not sure about the shrink wrapped rolls. You might ask the grocery store if they own the rights to the coin star. They count it, use it and pay coin star their fees.

    I bought my 2017P's from a antique shop. I think three for a dollar.

    Coin star is an independent company and the grocery does not own the rights.
    They get a rental fee/ commission.

    Yeah, you say that but I have seen multiple employees of said grocery chain empty it.
    I originally thought that but my eyes tell me different.

    perhaps a mis-post?

    or too much liquid refreshment?

    That's my bad,
    What is your plan with the cents?

    I did start my first beer when I posted, Maybe I jumped from Supermarket to coinstar,knowing they empty the machine.

    I'm assuming you mean the mint when you use the term "Fed"?

    The answer to that is in this thread.

    I'm just confused. Even the mint doesn't wrap coins for circulation so I'm not sure the OP got the correct information.
  20. Pickin and Grinin

    Pickin and Grinin Well-Known Member

    They may not be intended for circulation, but they are circulation strikes.

    The op asked further into this thread how coinstar got into her thread. The answer is in the thread itself. I don't believe the op had received the correct answer to her opening post.
