    The Wheat Penny Hoard: A 1910 Wheat Penny... just a start. Looking for suggestions

    It's not a 1909 VDB but, this might be the best penny I have found in the first few days of going through my grandfather's wheat penny collection. I remember in the '70s sitting at the table with him and flipping all the pennies over to look for the "wheat". Now 40+ years later, I have hundreds of rolls to look at! Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I have already 3D printed some sorting trays and bought a USB microscope. I have been sorting them by year looking for Double Dies and errors and have been putting aside ones that look uncirculated.

    Thanks, Wonderbread for the reply. I was just wondering if rolling them back up according to year was the way to go? Also, if anyone has any suggestions on how to display this many wheaties, and if it is even possible? I am just checking the obverse, should I be checking the reverse as well?

    Jonboy: you're on the right track, but sort them right away by mint mark also P-D-S otherwise they will have to be looked over again. Once sorted by year & mint mark then you can begin going through them and grading them from G to Ex.Fine., you have the time , patience, and interest to go through them all. If all those ROLLS are wheat cents congrats to you & grandfather to save so many from further circulation wear. That 1910 is in excellent XF+ condition., I hope you have more coins of that condition in all those rolls. Don't pitch back into circulation those not in XF+, because you might find along the way someone interested in any grade.

    Learn how to grade a Lincoln cent, separate all the XF and better common dates/mintmarks, and any rare dates/mintmarks, and get some 2X2's to put the better coins in. That way you can write the grade right on the border so you don't have to keep regrading the coin in the future. If you plan on keeping the coins, you might consider putting them in folders for easier viewing. The common lesser grades can get rerolled and stored or sold.

    JONBOY : just make sure to look at your red book FIRST, to ear mark the dates of the key & semi-key coins that are worth something even down to GOOD. Those I would definitely put in the 2x2 flips. Have fun & enjoy, take your time. Have your kids or grandkids also help, they might get interested in the hobby also.

    Congratulations on reliving a great experience with your grandfather.

    Most wheats will be in the 3c-5c range in bulk like this, but the value is in the mint marks, varieties and fun you are having.
    And by all means, look at the reverse as well. The easiest thing to spot on those wheats is clear extra thickness around the outside devices (details) which indicates a type of variety. The dots in the motto EPU are supposed to be round, but if you find one that is oval, that is very good.

    Click this link to Coppercoins which you can use to Id a variety (DDO, DDR or RPM). There's a lot to learn, so take your time and enjoy.

    Sorting by year is a great way to do it and I like your trays. Very well done making your own.
