    Sorry, that's a shame. Your bank is playing scrooge. Ever think of opening a separate account with an entire different bank?
    Resulting in two accounts. ;)

    Well it says right on the box, visually inspect.

    Yes, that's what I did. Looked at each hole (50). All have a "wheatie end"! Yeah right. I wish. Lol. :D

    Oh, I guess I misread the thread title. I thought this thread was going to be about the presents you got for the tellers at your bank for going out of their way to be so helpful in getting coins for your hobby (looking under your microscope) at face value.

    I once had a sealed box of nickels come up a roll short. the branch made good on it. of course I was much more of a fixture there than I am at any bank now.

    Through 9 rolls. 29 Wheats. No keys but hoping? Oldest, 1920s for sure. Possibly a 1919/1909?

    A lot of fun. I have rolls of memorials that I just put away as I was too lazy to spend or take to the bank (my bank does not take coin). I see a couple of 92 enders.....hmmm maybe I'll open? Who thinks I should? Who thinks just leave as is?

    Roll 19 is Amazing! 17 Wheats in the single roll. Lol. Ironically, here is the best one out of the 17. That makes 47 Wheats so far. Not even half done. Although, still no key.

    I'd go back to the bank quick and see if they have any more. Someone dumped a wheat hoard in a machine somewhere.

    Back into it! The 20th roll. One after the last roll that consisted of 17 wheats. This one had 14 wheat cents! The best one in that roll, 1910. Still, NO keys.
    Rough and slick

    Any guesses? Lol Oh well. I'm averaging about 2 -3 Wheats per roll! Still NO keys.





    My guess would be 1916d or s

    Oh, you were serious when you said 1910s? I thought you were facetious. I see your thinking now. That would make more sense, by the coin being so worn and slick.
    The older date, 1910 than 1916. How 'bout the mm now? S or d? Thanks buddy. :)

    Wheats found thus far: 79
    With 23 rolls remaining, including the 6 rolls that have wheat enders. 2, of which have both ends with a wheat. This, by far will most probably be my BEST box of cents EVER! So, I guess my bank did provide me with a "Nice Christmas Present" after all?
    Although, NO Keys or Varieties, as of yet. However, the THRILL was a present alone. and yes, my heart skipped a beat when I did run across a few 1992's. Lol. :)
    My best find

    Great Christmas gift for a CRH. Glad you are having fun and success.

    If you continue for years with CRH statistics and random chance dictate that at some point in time you will acquire one or more rolls containing a run of MS wheat cents dated from 1909 through the 1930s, plus some rolls containing MS wheat cents from 1940 to 1958 containing 50 MS cents of the same date and mint mark.

    When that happens make sure you post pics.

    I once had a box like that. Of course, no keys but it had plenty of Wheaties, which were exciting on see popping up 10+ per roll.
    Best of my group was a 1909 VDB, but alas no "S."

    Yes, I just remembered! This happened to me not too long ago. About 3 months ago.
    I bought a bank box of cents. That box too, had a multiple amount of Wheaties. 90 to be exact! 10 short of two FULL Rolls. Different bank. I'm pretty sure, this box will surpass that? ;)
