New to the forum after recently returning to collecting after long hiatus.
Newbie question - Jar of Wheat Pennies
I have no idea. If you have a copy of the Red Book, show him that most are only worth 5 Cents each. Or, show him listings on EBay with 5000 wheat pennies selling only for $70.5 months ago
Thanks, good suggestion.5 months ago
Not a clue as long as there not sold here it's against the rules. I don't think he will find anyone they practically give them away. Mike4 months ago
Thanks for the info. Certainly plenty of info on the web to prove everyone's points. I'll pass him the info. and bust his get rich scheme. Doubt he will sell me his jar. He'll probably keep saving, oh well, thanks again!!4 months ago
No one will know what it's worth even fifty years from now unless he goes threw it and finds a rare on. That's not good idea but stranger things have happened. Thanks mike.2 months ago
My dealer sells a bag of 1500 Wheaties for about $30 bucks. he will then buy it back for about $20. I don't remember the exact prices. I don't believe in "un-searched" anything. Sorry..2 months ago
A jar with thousands of wheat cents? No dealer has the time or the inclination to go through them all to find a key or two. Undoubtedly, if a dealer buys a hoard of cents, as part of a larger collection, the dealer will just sell them in bulk as unsearched for maybe a couple of bucks per roll.
