    Its a very nice score, but I'm afraid I have a bit of bad news. Your "mint" Indian is far from mint. Although it is nice and shiny, it shows significant wear. For a coin to retain that much natural mint luster, the "Liberty" in the headband would be very visible. Your coin has been very improperly cleaned, I'm afraid.

    Still, quite a haul. My all-time best box had 8 wheaties.

    Any day you find an IHP is a good day, congrats! The wheats are just a bonus. Any good dates?

    There was one 1928 and two 1939s the rest were every imaginable date through 1940-1958 some with mint marks. I also forgot to add that I found two 1951 Canadian Cents too.
