Yup. I've got a run of 80's cents that look similar.
Possibly. I wasn't having any luck finding early 90's and 80's Zincolns the entire box (only a few more rolls left in the box). Practically every single one was insane plating blisters, worn, and/or a very nasty stained brown.
@gronnh20 Even if only worth 10¢, it makes the collection look better
Yeah, somebody's dump. I have quite a few found roll hunting myself over the years. I don't roll hunt any more though. Wheaties are so much tougher to find and it seems everybody's pulling everything notable from circulation. Not the fun it used to be. Nice finds.
Very nice examples, especially being around 60 years old.
Thats one of the reasons I stopped with the cents. I average around 5-8 wheats a box and even when looking for errors (and with the Lincolns there are a ton of errors and varieties) they are all nasty dirty. Just like a lot of fellow CRH I do not like the zinc cents. Been thinking about purchasing one of those $500 machines that separate the copper from the zinc as I love the copper cents
I have some too, in the folders I keep for circulation finds.
I used to find around 50 to 100 per box around ten years ago when I hunted cent boxes. I got tired of only pulling 3 or 4 a box so I quit.
Absolutely agree! I used to find a ton but now slim Pickens
Maybe cause the average one found are worth 2 cents. Take a chance throwing back into circulation hopefully inspiring some random person or youngen to start collecting. Every now and then I will carry some common 50s wheats and pay here and there with them just to get a reaction out of a young teller. Keep this wonderful hobby alive!
Agreed. What coins are the best to hunt these days? Anything worth the time?
