    5000 Wheats (and counting)

    Didn't really realize it until I updated my spreadsheet, but I've found just over 5,000 Wheats since I started sorting. Only took 943,000 coins! :-p Sadly, this wasn't the 5000th one, but still worth a post here:

    No VDB, but still one hell of a find I think, and in decent shape for 110 years old!

    Also found this lamination error too:

    Awesome! I mainly do cents, a few years ago when I was pretty serious into it I was doing $300+ per week. I love finding the old wheats, IH, and older Canadian stuff. Iím back up to $100 or more a week, so I hope to pick back up where I left off. Nice finds

    Rosco: are these numbers from when you started on TN March 2018, or sometime prior?
    Great numbers, any Key or Semi-key dates.

    The same time I started sorting was when I started on here. Was reading on here prior to starting, and when I pulled the IH on my first sort thats when I posted. Also, which wheats are considered "key"?

    Key dates for wheats include 1909-S VDB, 09-S, 14D, and 31-S. They are all valuable pennies, even in G-4 condition. It would be amazing to find any one of them in circulation. Semi-keys include early teens S mints, 22-D, and 24-D.

    2 - 1922D
    14,817 wheats

    LOTS of 1956D, 57D, and 58D. Over 1,000 each, by a little.

    I've only poked into CRH a little bit. Got some halves at my bank, paid my barber 20 of them and he scowled at me = but it was $10 solid and I got a haircut. Won't do that to him again for sure. He's still my barber....

    damn roscoe that is badass. grats. i just started myself. question. do you only look for wheats and IH? what about LMC error and variety. what do you do with the searched pennys? the bank got mad at me today with my order of a box of 500$ halves. lol i have been pondering ideas around this. I saw some guys open a few seperate free bank accounts.

    IMO for pennys , the 3$ that coinstar charges is worth it, when it takes me over 2 hours to reroll 2500 pennys lol.

    rcb187: you will find that at $3 a pop, it going to take a lot of key cents to pay for it. Consider it part of the hunt. Suggest, if you bought a box of cents, have your rerolls all prepped and ready to fill, working one roll at a time ( open roll, check, replace # of cents taken out, reroll ), this way you don't have to count out to 50, which takes most of the time. I make my prepped empty rolls while watching TV during the week ahead of time.
    I can normally check a BOX of cents & reroll in about 1-hr, uninterrupted.

    wow dozer that is impressive time. i am a bit confused to as how you prep the rolls? do you just arrange them in the box open? also how do u get thru a box and repackage in 1 hour dam. i have been taking out 60, 64, 69, 70, 71, 72, 84, 92, 98 , 99, also checking to see if years past 83 up to 90 are struck on copper planchet.

    rcb: my fault in the confusion. That 1-hour time is when I was ONLY looking for Wheaties, not coppers WAM or oddities.

    My search tactics have "evolved" as I've searched more. I started out sorting out by date, counting up the coppers, and microscoping each coin. Then I started really only searching the key dates. Gave up counting copper after my first 100,000 cents. Then around Thanksgiving or so I really just gave up on the "key dates" for errors. Started realizing I'm not overly interested in errors. Found like 30 98/2000 wide ams, 4 72 doubled dies, an 1983, and some cuds and clips. Started just flipping through for wheats/IH/foreign/2009's then, and just recently gave up on 2009s as well. Basically I just grab a handful, line them up and flip through, if I see a memorial or date before 58, it goes back. Anything else I keep. I'll still pull a cud or clip if I see it, but I'm in this for old coins and foreign ones, so anything beyond that goes back into the bag.

    As for the searched ones, put them back in a bag and take them in. My bank prefers I do that over boxes, saves on rolls and time, though getting the feeling I'm quite fortunate with my bank. I routinely go through 10 bags of coin a week and they don't seem to mind. Helps that I bring candy and make sure to never be in a hurry. Dimes I just rim search, can do a bag in about an hour. Nickels I still date-search, takes about an hour for a bag, and cents takes about 2 hours or so for a bag. Maybe talk to yours about doing bags instead? Bit more pricey, but a LOT easier.
