2020-W American Samoa Found In Weir Rolls?

WQuarterFreddieWQuarterFreddie Posts: 2,548 ✭✭✭✭✭

Asking the W Quarter hunters if they remember ever finding America Samoa Bat W quarters in Weir new coin rolls.

Specifically, when you searched new coin rolls of all Weir did you ever find a W American Samoa?

I don't remember....πŸ€”

    I have been doing research and it appears the Bats were distributed late and most likely included in the Weir rolls.

    Would love confirmation of this from someone who remembers finding them though....😎

    I found many Weir and American Samoa W quarters. Unfortunately my brain can't confirm my own question!πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    I know what you mean. It gets confusing. I've found all 10 of the W series. But don't ask me what they were mixed in with. No need to buy one from this end.

    The American Samoa 'bat' quarters were only found in the Weir Farm Park rolls. As with the Lowell Park in 2019 there was a delay in release something to do with the privy mark. I searched quite a few WFP rolls and never found a WFP 'W' I did find a good number of AS 'Ws'.

    Did anyone ever find a W quarter in a Mint roll of American Samoa S quarters? Cheers, RickO

    I kept good track of my finds, down to which bank the rolls came from lol. I still have a good supply of unsearched new AS rolls that I had obtained before word came out that the 'W' was delayed. I still open a few new rolls of other releases from time to time. It's still a great feeling to find a shiny new 'W'.

    I'm not good at attaching references but there is a Coin World article from April 9, 2020 that goes into this.

    I haven't yet graduated into the lucky club of finding a "W" quarter, though this thread reminds me of a fun prank/birthday gift I did for a friend back when they came out.

    Yes, I found many Bats W's in fresh new rolls, keep 5, and sold the rest. They were only in Weir rolls, never in Samoa rolls, found that out from a person on the Forum (Steve). I was searching new Bat rolls and found none.

    The 'W' mint quarters weren't salted into any of the USM direct bag or roll products. A small package was added to ballistic bags of 'P' and 'D' mint quarters that went out to the distributors (like Brinks) who were to mix them in.

    Thank you all for confirmation! I bought some new coin rolls recently and was shocked when I found 3 W Bats in the Weir rolls.

    Felt good to find some and to CRH again. Brought back some great memories!😎

    I have 10 more rolls on the way!🀞

    If you are willing to sell some of your unopened 2019 or 2020 rolls please send me a PM.

    I miss the thrill of the hunt!😎
