    Your numbers are in line with estimates I've seen of one Indian Head every 40 boxes. I haven't pulled one yet, but I got an 1896 in change from a Chinese restaurant a few years ago.

    I can hardly imagine it, but you're closing in on four full boxes of wheats (potentially an extra $1000.00 on eBay) and two boxes of Canadians. The Canadians are likely worth a premium, since they've effectively been demonetized.

    From my much smaller sample size, I've pulled a Belgian coin and a 2-cent Euro, along with two S-mint proofs (1968 and 1986). The only error of note was a copper with the last digit missing from the date (these are not considered rare). I check the 1992's for the close AM, but so far no luck.

    You're probably up to 2.5 million cents by now. Continued happy hunting!
    Appreciate the kind words. Best of luck with your search for an Indian Head, definitely a thrill to find! Sadly, the Canadians aren't really worth much extra unless you're fortunate to find a George V, but not doin this with the delusion of getting rich. Also, only at 2,188,000.

    Was all the 2,000,000 coins from bags or was it a mixture of bags and boxes? That's about 8 bags/boxes per week, wow. Your fingers and eyes must be sore at the end of the week.

    First time was 8 rolls, exchanged those for 18, then for 20 twice, and then my bank's vault manager said bags would be easier for them and me and its been bags (of every denomination) ever since. Only other time I've done rolls was once my bank had like 5 rolls of halves...

    Being a stat lover, I was seriously wondering if I've handled 2,000,000 pennies in my lifetime. I'm leaning toward no. That would be well over 100 pennies a day, every day since I got my first piggy bank.

    Nope. I just keep-Indians, wheats, foreigners, and obvious errors I find (no longer microscoping all the key dates, realized I don't care).

    I'm on a 250k slump for indians myself, and had gone 830k between previously too... Anytime you find one, its a good day!
