I Did Something They Say Never to do in the Coin Hobby
I purchased a roll of cents off of Ebay. I know many of your minds have already went to that "original roll" scam that gets newer collectors frequently, but I saw this roll not marked as original (it was actually marked as a roll of 1951-D proofs ) and my curiosity got the better of me. I thought I had a good chance and thought I'd at least get enough enjoyment out of the hunt of the roll for my money (well kinda ).
Luckily for me, it turned out and I purchased a seemingly original roll of red 1951-D Lincoln cents for $22 shipped. Big smile here! I don't remember anything like this ever turning out on the forums, if I am wrong please correct me. At least, I don't remember any threads about truly original Wheat cents rolls.
I must apologize for the bad phone pics. I will probably find the best coin and image it at some point. A quick glance reveals the average coin grades around 65RD.
