    Average wheats per box of cents?

    Don't know if this is already a thread or not, but I got my first brinks box today and I got 16 wheats all 40's and 50's. Is that average?

    You must have done your first box a long time ago if you got all that. I've searcher a total of roughly $100 over the past 4 days and only have 56 wheats.

    anywhere from 6 to 30 is a good guess, usually around 10 though.

    Ok so about 1 every 4 rolls is good. That's enough to keep me going. I'm so excited for next week! Who knows what I'll find.

    I'm 16 and I don't have a lot of money. I might do nickels if I get enough cash to buy a box every week.

    Do you hand sort and hand wrap or does your dump bank have a coin counter?

    Unfortunately I have to hand sort and wrap. My bank doesn't have a coin dump machine. I don't think any of them by me do. I'll go looking because it sure would help. I've been keeping the copper to sell for a profit of $30 on the $100 on eBay. Might as well I figure less to get rid of too.
