    Possibly found a LEGITIMATE seller of Unsearched rolls?

    eBay Feedback Profile for coinloop

    I don't know if the reviews are completely legit and telling the truth, but one guy said he found a 1909 S VDB that wasn't an ender, and another completely different guy managed to find a 1909 S.

    On the second page, someone ended up paying $27.00 for the roll, and apparently inside there were 2 copper nickel 1859-1864's?

    Not sure how I feel about this..?

    It's also highly possible that the reviews were plants that are associated with the seller. Not saying that's the case, just a possibility.

    IMHO and experience, most of these so-called "Unsearched Rolls" of Wheat and Indian Head Cents have been searched and is a ruse to boost the price that the rolls bring! Quite a few Sellers of these have been exposed but yet, eBay does little to nothing about them due to the fees that they collect for sales of these auctions. Some Buyers never post Feedback for Sellers and this and other Sellers of these rolls may have convinced eBay to remve some Neutral and Negative Feedback from their' Profiles. Personally, I would never pay the prices that these probable searched, salted and/or made up rolls bring!

    In my opinion all unsearched roll sellers are scammers. Who in their right mind would ever have a roll with a 1909 vdb showing and not open and search it for the S mint mark. The unsearched roll is just a scam to sell rolls of coins for more then they are worth.

    IMO, I do not believe a seller statement: "unsearched roll" of anything. Think of the probability of a valuable coin in (loose coin wrap) the roll, then examine the probability of it being the number one coin facing outward. Possible, but unlikely. Now, if it was an estate sale or yard sale with old wrappings, a tight paper roll and very cheap price; I say go for it.

    I inherited 35lbs. of pennies that were almost 100% wheat. I laid down one day and started looking through them--didn't take long before I got board out of my mind. Copper was selling for about $4.30/lb--so I put them on ebay--bidding starting at the "scrap" value knowing that whoever wanted them could do the search and/or sell wheat cents at a community event. Great all around deal for the both of us.

    I have the patience for that, personally. I've searched hundreds of lbs of wheat cents in my lifetime, and I can tell you I've pulled out some pretty nice dates, lol.

    But yeah, sometimes it gets boring. But hey, sometimes you find really nice stuff mixed in. I found a 1936 cent that was mixed in with a bunch of 1940-1958 cents at my LCS, and it was 20% off center. It grades about an VF-XF.

    I once had the patience but no longer. In 1979 or 1980 (I can't remember which year), I got fiberglass in my' right eye and spent 2 1/2 hours in the hospital having it irragated in an attempt to get all of the fiberglass out. However, it did not get it all out and around 2002, the fiberglass begin screwing with the optic nerve in my' eye...especially if I spent much time viewing coins with a Gem Loupe. It wasn't so bad at first but a few years later, I started getting migraines in my' eyeball and can now only spend short spirts of viewing coins looking for errors and varieties. If I persist and spend too much time viewing coins, then the migraines migrate up my' head to the back and I call these Harvey Wallbangers because Harvey could bang his' head against the wall and it would not hurt any worse. I will probably lose the sight in my right eye someday due to the fiberglass but until then, I do the best that I can. The irony is that I have around 5,100 Wheat Cents in a Bank Bag that I only searched around 150 before I gave up and will be selling them on eBay soon since I can't really search them. I had a young lady go through them to give me an assessment of the date ranges and they range from several 1909-P's and one 1909-P VDB to 1958. The majority are 30's, 40's and 50's but there are a fair assortment of teens and 20's and also some 1910's, 1911's and 1912's in the bag. My days of searching one to two thousand coins a night and finding 20 to 50 error coins and a few Double Dies a night are long gone!

    I found an old coin collection in a house I cleaned out. metal ammunition boxes full of rolled wheat pennies. I searched some of the partial rolls and found a few IH pennies too, to include a 1877. It was very boring until halfway thru I cam across it.
