    Very interesting cent roll and a buffalo - dimes a total skunk

    Over last 2 days, searched $300 in dimes - complete skunk. Got $40 in quarters also - I haven't seen a 2019 quarter of any type yet. In fact, I don't even see that many 2018s. Got $3 in halves and one was a 2009 NIFC - spent it already.

    Now it gets a bit more interesting

    Searched $20 in nickels and got this 1920 buffalo (5th of the year). Can barely make out the date, but can see the 2 and some of the 0. Its pretty well worn as most of these are.

    Got $18 in pennies. Through $17.50 got 8 wheats and 2 Canadian (1963 & 1964). The last roll was the pic below. I opened it and I thought all fairly new, and then I saw they were BU memorial cents mostly, and at the end of the roll were 5 wheat cents, including the 3 below (1909VDB, 1915, and 1943D) - the other 2 were from the 1950s. I thought this was a very odd roll to get - either someone had a collection of cents from every year they kept in BU condition or they opened mint sets and rolled up the coins. But to get the 5 wheats including the 2 rare dates and the steel, I don't understand. What makes this more strange to me is that 3 of the rolls I got from that bank were similar to this one, but they were nearly all zinc cents, so when I opened this I was expecting a skunk.

    Don't question it, just be happy ya found 'em! Also, sucks on the skunk streak. I've pretty much given up on dimes.

    Yeah, dimes have been tough this year. Aside from a solid silver roll I found in March (prior post), the pickings have been pretty slim this year.
