Can't sell that one as an unsearched wheat.. you probably peeked at the date.

If your percentages are low.. just sort more. If your percentages are high.. just sort more.

Now selling Copper pennies. 1.6x plus shipping. Limited amounts available.

Three Brinks boxes drive buys from three banks. One was opened with about 25% plastic rolls. 15 pounds. The other two boxes were sealed and weighed in at 15 pounds each.

Also one of the wheats was covered with some sort of flaky green stuff. I can't read the date. Does anyone know how to remove the stuff so i can read the date?

I got $50 worth of cents on Friday from my secondary bank. All were in customer-wrapped rolls. There was a total of 1320 '59-'82 coppers and 15 wheat cents, which makes my copper percentage for this lot 26.4%. My best find however was a 2000 wide am error cent. For those of you who aren't familiar with this coin, it is worth about $7 in circulated condition.

It seems that the Cu ratios in the S.F. Bay Area are quite a bit lower than elsewhere. I have been averaging around 19%

Sorted 7500
