    Local banks around town. I actually get alot from the Kroger because I feel like there's not a town of people searching the boxes they get there.

    Thanks. I thought so but I had a coin similar to that one and most opinions said striation marks. So I wasn't sure . But thanks !

    FYI, excerpt from The E-Sylum: Volume 12, Number 11, March 15, 2009, Article 7:

                   Last week Dick Johnson wrote:
                 Several mentions have been made in the blogs recently of a new term applied to the surface of Lincoln cents: 
                 woodgrain. The term is apt. The illustrated surface of an 1981-D cent does indeed look like the graining in wood. 
                 While this may be considered an anomaly of toning, instead it is an anomaly of the metal composition. It is an error 
                 in mixing of copper and zinc.
    

    While not necessarily a "new term", it certainly goes back a long way and many different knowledgeable people have used it.

    Cool finds! I still will grab $5 in cents from the bank every now and then... going through them makes for a good family activity after dinner in the winter.

    I showed my wife the cud and the woody. Nice coins for penny box finds.

    But she didn't care too much about the coins but wanted to know if you chew on your nails....... Sorry >:)
