The BU Cent Wheat Roll from the bank
I was CRHING as usual yesterday, and in one roll I was going through, I was pulling out some really nice, full luster and details 50's wheats and some real nice 60's even some 1968 S. Well this was going on for a few rolls. Most were just wheats - 70's a few 80's then it happend. At the end, of one roll, there it was. The date was showing, but I couldn't tell what it was. Well after getting the roll opened. It was a BU 1927 D Wheat Cent! It had all the details in the wheat lines and lincoln had tons of details. It looked Mintstate. I don't even want to take it out of the 2x2 right now to take a picture because I don't want to fingerprint it on accident. This is a once in a lifetime!!

Take the pic through the 2x2. Set the camera on the macro (flower) and take a pic.
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
