    I just got a box where 80% of the individual coins were marked with a sharpie. It tells me I am downstream from an idiot. What a waste of time to mark each coin lol. I am assuming they looked for errors etc if they have that much free time. It does make it mildly interesting to see how they'll disperse. I opened a few rolls and dumped the box without searching it once I saw the pattern.

    I wonder how far our coins go. My wife had a skunk box with over 70% marked with a sharpie at the end of December. Of course I dumped them without removing the marks & wonder if you might have gotten them now.

    I do the "Where's George" marking dollar bills and people downstream enter them in the computer and you can see where they went and how it took to get there. I have had several go from Boston to California and others to Florida, some get entered a year or more after I marked them.

    Sometimes those ugly dark 40% JFKs get missed.

    That makes sense, I am in California. So those people going from Boston to CA of FL are called snowbirds. See it every winter,they bring their $$ with them. Good for our local economy, I live in a tiny tourist town.

    In the past a few times I would put an old year (like 1964 or 1950) on the wrapper or the word silver. We all get CWR in old dingy wrappers, they are what I would use. Didn’t do it a lot, just enough to give another Hunter a short thrill when the teller hands him the roll.

    OK, now you all don’t jump on me for being mean.

    I think that is a great idea, get excited since the CRH is probably going to get them anyway

    The only reason to mark a wrapper is so you don't buy them again.
