    Results from 25 boxes of cents searched, that's 62,500 of them with pics

    We started doing boxes of cents over Christmas break. We finished the 25th today. No boxes were skunks, most in one box =20, least in one box =3, oldest 1898 Indian, 1909 Wheat, 6 "s" cents. None were needed for our found in the wild book. We mostly searched boxes, perhaps 3 boxes were made from customer rolls, and 2 $50 bags were searched.(we divided the results of those in half, that is where we found the souvenir coins).

    Box 1 = 8 wheats, all common
    Box 2 = 8 wheats, 1939, 7 common, 2 King George
    Box 3 = 8 wheats, all common, 2 King George
    Box 4 = 10 wheats, all common, 1 King George
    Box 5 = 6 wheats, 1943 steel, 5 common
    Box 6 = 5 wheats, 1927, 4 common
    Box 7 = 10 wheats, all common
    Box 8 = 8 wheats, 1916, 1929s, 6 common
    Box 9= 11 wheats, all common, 2 King George
    Box 10 = 10 wheats, all common
    Box 11 = 12 wheats, all common
    Box 12 = 7 wheats, all common
    Box 13 = 13 wheats, 1930, 1930, 11 common wheats, 1 King George
    Box 14 = 1 Indian head 1898, 11 wheats, 1909, 10 common wheats
    Box 15 = 10 wheats, 1936, 9 common
    Box 16 = 3 wheats, all common, 1 King George
    Box 17 = 12 wheats, 1939, 11 common

    Kudos for your perserverence and analysis.
    The only real surprise to me was the lack of "S" coins.
    I would have bet substanially more would have appeared.

    We tend to average on Wheat "S" every 2 boxes. You never know what will or will not turn up.

    Tanner is a Junior in high school. He is a bit more interested in girls and soccer than coins right now. I think he helped out with 2 of the 25 boxes. I figure I introduced him to coin collecting, and he will probably get back into more when he is older.

    Is there that much value in wheaties? I always thought they were worth maybe twice value. Is a couple of bucks worth the time? Not tryin to slam ya, I'm just ignorant about it. Good luck.
