    Ok - now all the [near] UNC's are looking like Proofs.

    2nd pic: is the '71 Proof? '95? And the '04 looks like total Frost-job. Never heard of it.

    3rd pic???

    Nice coins. :)

    The red book lists 1995-S proofs, but not 1995-D proofs.

    Was going through my recent BWR wheatback finds, looking to see if any filled holes in my primary collection. To my amazement, I filled 4 slots! 1910, 1928, 1941-D, 1952-S!!!

    None of these coins are high quality - around G-4, or worse (the 52-S looks terrible), but hey progress! :)

    All 4 of these coins came in the past 3 or 4 weeks from sifting through Loomis BWRs. I've been through maybe 8 (?) boxes of cents in that period.

    The cent is from Bermuda... or an error of some sort.

    No '65 - '67?

    I ask since '64 Silver Rosies were minted THROUGH 1967...

    They were minted through 1967, but were back dated to 1964. Any of them dated 1965-1967 were clad. Silver and clad were minted side by side in order to keep silver actively in circulation until the clad were accepted by the public.

    I did not know that. It was just my lucky day to get all silvers.

    Well as I stated last comment, I got skunked on 3 boxes of halves. Today I walk into the bank to withdraw some money as im leaving on vacation in a day, went to the teller and asked for my dough. As she was counting I happened to glance at her tray, she had 2 halves and I identified the silver one hiding behind the clad one. She hands me my money and asks if there is anything else she could do for me. I stated "sure, can I get those 2 half dollars please" and handed her a buck. I tucked them in my pocket til i got out to the car. I remember saying to myself "man that thing is white behind the clad, probably a 64!. I was wrong. As i dug the 2 out of my pocket and let my 4yr old put it in her "purse" I look at the other one. Boom! 43 walker UNC. I told my wife "wtf"! Anyway, I went home an stuffed it in its new home, a 2x2.

    This makes it like 3 times I have caught tellers with silver in their tray. The other times were 40%er's though.

    I just finished off a very weak BWR box of Loomis cents. Coins seem pretty hit or miss since my bank switched to Loomis.

    Anyway, there were 15 wheats, the oldest being a 1944, (2) 1946, 1948. Most of the rest were 1958-Ds. All of the coins were brown and worn. G-4's or lower caste Fines. There were 3 SanFran coins, 1968-S, (2) 1970-S, and a few beat up 2009s of different backs.

    Hoping these weak boxes are flukes. I'm going to swap my 3 searched boxes at a couple of branches I've never visited. Maybe they'll have some CWRs or older BWR boxes!

    I also pull the 2009 cents but wonder if I'm wasting my time. What do you guys think? Are they worth pulling? Why or why not?
