Penny Box #1 and #2 Finds

Coins | CoinHunter

HI! I just wanted to let you guys know that I hunted the first of the four boxes of pennies on Wednesday earlier this week and I didn't make a blog about what I found because I didn't find anything very cool but nevertheless here are the finds: 13 wheats (including one 1936, but it is bent up and dug up), 10 2009s, 8 S mints, 4 Canadians (including 1 1964 Young Head), a 1964 that I am pretty sure is a proof, and lastly, 6 1969-D Floating Roof Errors (This was the first hunt that I looked for them) I also am going to list the the finds of the #2 box which I hunted yesterday: 6 wheats (including a 1919 in the very first roll, and a 1939-S which I need for my folder!), 3 2009s, 3 Canadians, 2 S Mints, 1 dime, two 1969-D Floating Roof Errors, and the best of Both boxes, a 1979-D Rim Cud Error, these two boxes are a good example of "Quality over quantity". Thanks for reading and I will let you know what I find in the last two boxes.

That 64 doesn't look like a proof to me, but the picture doesn't hold it in the best of light. Great finds though!

Very nice. Thanks for the update. I need to roll search, but make sure I know what i am looking for. Need to research every date for what varieties and errors are out there. That way I get more than a few wheats. I can maybe find errors and varietys. Would learn a lit by doing a search.

Congratulations. My last roll of cents I looked at almost all had a cloudy film on them, like they had all been in a solution of some sort.

Well, I think it is a proof any ways, and I know! More than have of the ones I checked had it, although some are more severe than others.
