    I never realized how many cents are minted. This says more than half of all coins minted last year were cents.

    That's a whole lotta Zincolns!

    The plague of 2018 continues.
    Two boxes today; one was normal circulation, with no silver. There were 15 clad proofs, however.
    The second, while not solid 2018, contained over 400 of them. There was not a roll that did not have at least one of them. Also, there were no solid rolls of 2018's.
    Also in the box was a lonely 1969, which got me on the board for 2019.
    Hopefully the 2018's are passing through the system. These things have been banging around, so are not truly uncirculated. They are sharp, though.

    All that means is that another CRHer got the solid box and dumped it into circulation.

    Last year I think I got 3 or 4 solid boxes of 2017s. All were in the flat one layer box, Loomis I think. When I get the taller two layer they have always been average circulated. I have asked my teller to only order the two layer boxes but she said she has no control on what is shipped.

    I get the flat Loomis boxes here. What I don't understand is that I get 2 boxes per week.
    There are 2 tier boxes available at US Bank, but they are more than half marked coins. I take a lot of dumps at my local casino, which uses US. They are not a good option for me.
    One is always normal, with no 2018's. For the past 3 weeks, the other is infested with 2018's.
    I will be glad to get to the end of it.
    Did your 2017's disappear after getting the solid boxes, or did you continue to see quantities of them mixed in for awhile?

    In the beginning I would get 1 or 2 per roll and then all of a sudden solid boxes. I have not ordered in about a month. If I order early on a Friday I have to wait one week. I do not get into town very often to place my order. I still live in town, everything is a 5 minute drive. Lazy I guess, knowing I might get another skunk.

    There's one thing that we are not taking into consideration here, and that is some coin processors BUY FROM EACH OTHER, especially if and when they cannot fulfill the banks order needs. It happens very often in my area. You think that the box come from Loomis when in it actually come from Garda, Brinks etc.

    I am in NE Oregon.
    The main population center in my region is TriCity, WA.
    It is possible the coins are from 2 sources.
    While I do not mark coins, I do set the marked ones aside to compare. The boxes nearly always show to be from different sources. I see 4 major markers, and one box will be full of one individual's, the other holds somebody else's. They are usually not mixed together unless the markings are worn, and show a few dumping cycles since being marked.
    One hunter makes a peace sign on the obverse of bicentennials, another makes a cursive m on the obverse of any coin, another dates the coin(usually obverse), and my favorite scrawls some unreadable scratchings on both sides of the coin. What makes this hero special is a predilection for marking proof coins.

    Somehow I will try to find this out. The flat box always has LOOMIS on the wrapper. I have point blank asked the teller if they have two carriers and they reply "for security they can not answer" I just don't want flat boxes and they say they can not control. Thet does hint only one carrier that gets coins from where ever they can.

    My "Buy" bank is Chase so next time I am in Oregon I will see if I can order a box from a Chase there. It is 25 miles north and maybe a different carrier.

    My turn, Yay! and damn it. I showed up for my normal 2 boxes of halves for the week and my tellers said they had a total of 5 boxes in the back would i want more. I had the cash for 3 boxes. All 3 boxes were sealed and solid 2018D. I have saved a roll and will toss the rest back tomorrow.

    I'm dreading the remaining 2 boxes in the vault. Apparently someone else started ordering halves from my pick up bank and has not picked them up.

    Scottw,

    Hey MOG! Long time no see. Yeah you're right in my neck of the woods and to hear your pickups are solid too is a bad sign. I'm ordering 2 more this week and if solid 2018 I'm going to hold off for a while

    LOL, I know the "hero" you're talking about... its no me btw I don't mark my coins. He's another hunter in this area and takes his dumps down to Oregon or SW Washington to get his dumps as far away as possible. He's slowed down on the boxes, used to buy $15-20k at a time.

    The Peace sign ones I get a lot too. These ones have been more recent within the last 6 months or so.

    The other common mark I get is from a hunter who underlines 1974d halves. below the WE TRUST.

    Dang! It is a small world!
    I did not think anybody else would be interested in torturing themselves with our crazy hobby, at least in our 'small potatoes' location.
    While I like to read about dream boxes of old Walkers and Barbers, I realize I will never see one from our sparsely populated area.
    Still, you never know what's in that next roll until its opened.
