As odd as this sounds, I got to know who's getting what, and what you're seeing.

I had an unbelievable box today.

80 Wheaties in it, and one roll had 20%. My new personal bests.

What's in it for the dude?

I'm averaging about .5% wheaties from my local bank.

80 wheats in a box is awesome! I wonder if a small collection of wheats got cashed in.

I've been averaging nearly 9 wheats per $25 box of pennies lately.

Conga rats on your score, NoCents My personal best is only three wheaties in a roll... but I usually machine sort so have no way of knowing if I've done better. Usually hit about 21 to 25 wheaties per box out here in California

This will tell the scale I sort on... but... I don't calculate my wheaties per box or bag. Cause I usually don't get that much at a time. Anyway, to answer the question, I get a wheatie about every four rolls.

I usually don't keep track of this, but did recently.

Searched ~$1100 - mostly from bags found in small town rural midwestern banks (90%) and the remaining 10% being string boxes...

Found ~275 wheats

The dates run very consistant considering how different the wheats run in percentages. High in the 50's and 40's, then it starts to drop fast after that.
