Penny roll searching #1

Coins | 1943penny

I stopped at the bank a few days ago and picked up a box of pennies and on my way home I checked the ends to see if I could find any Wheaties and at about the second roll I came across a wheat back so, I could not help myself, I opened it up and saw it was a 1950 s penny which is pretty good. I kept searching the ends but had no such luck and waited until I got home to open em up. here is what I found;
3 1944 pennies- VF-AU
1 1941 s penny- AU
1 1919 penny- G
2 1958 pennies- VF
12 Canadian coins including two commemorative's- G-AU
1 coin that looked foreign but could not read country- AG
8 Lincoln bicentennials- AU-MS
2 1969 floating roof pennies- VF

Overall a good box and I hope the next one is even betterBTW last box I searched I found a 1909 V.D.B in OK condition, my best find yet!

Roll searching is a lot of fun. I remember finding 2 1909 VDBs about a week apart. Of course, that is over 20 years ago.

Great finds. I love roll hunting.. Thanks.

Great that you found a VDB! do you also hunt for toned cents? I never seem to find any, though I picked up a nice slabbed one at a show.

👍👍👍(in case you can't see it from your device, that's a thumbs up there for ya!)

Good grief, thats a pretty good haul, how much did you get? WHATT A 1909 VDB in CIRCULATION!!?? Also what is a 1969 floating roof penny?

the floating roof cent is a error on the roof on the Lincoln memorial when the lines holding it up are not there. It is kind of common and only worth about a dollar or two. and I just searched a 25 dollar box.

Roll searching is a nice pastime.

I never found a V.D.B in the 100s or possibly 1000s of rolls I searched, but congratulations on some really nice finds!!

Nice Haul and a VDB the last time you searched? I wonder if that VDB got into circulation during National Coin Week. thanks for sharing your search results.
