    Nasty old penny rolls. Guess whats inside. with PICS and now the Results

    Stopped by my bank and asked for $25 in pennies. They usually give me a box form the Fed but this time they gave me $25 in vintage rolls. I do not have time to search today. Any one want to guess what I find inside? I am working all day Saturday so I will post my finds on Sunday.

    All the rolls ended up being solid copper. Some rolls the newest date was 1973 others 1978.

    Total number of wheats = 0

    It is always fun to score some vintage rolls. It is a shame I do not keep copper pennies. I will just return them to the wild.

    judging by the X on the rolls, imma say either no wheats at all, or maybe all wheats, and the X was to remind the (little old) person to not deposite the coins haha...so 50/50 lo.. good luck!

    Either they have been checked or they are going to be great. I hope the latter.

    Please keep us updated.

    How can you not at least peek inside of one roll to see what might be inside?

    45 cents per roll! Someone marked out the 50 on the rolls so the bank would know they are short coin!

    They are now worth 2.7 cents a piece. You should at least put them on ebay and double or almost double your money. I would love to find $25 in solid copper.
