    I would like to see some of the ones you call improper mix and off center. There are two types of coins that look off center. One is an off center strike. That affects both sides of the coin. The other is a misaligned die, or a mad. Mads have to be severe to have any value.

    That is actually extremely helpful to know, and just shows my lack of experience. All of my "off center" coins that I have been saving actually seem to be misaligned dies (only one side is off). I wouldn't describe any of them as severe. They are roughly 0.2-1.5mm off on one side (almost always the obverse, but maybe I just don't notice it as readily on the reverse.)

    Ah well, always good to learn. I always suspected my "error/oddities" statistic was absurdly high.. chances are pretty good I've got the improper mix ones misidentified too.
    Many thanks.

    As it turns out, almost all of my alleged "off center" coins are actually Misaligned dies (thanks to enamel7). Future boxes have been changed to reflect this. I am still keeping some of the better condition/more extreme ones but most will likely be thrown back into the pool at some point.

    Overall this was a very nice week, probably my best to date. Two of the Wheaties in box #6 were enders, and that box also included my first Indian head from a bank box (4th total).
    Box #7 had a (personal) record for both copper and the 2009 commemorative, although almost all of the commemorative were the same one (35+ Denver formative years). It also included my first foreign coin that wasn't from the US or Canada.

    BOX 6 Gotten Dec 11 2017

    327 copper (13.08%)

    11 Wheaties (1934, 1939, 1942 X2, 1942S, 1946, 1950S, 1951S X2, 1952D, 1958D)

    9 errors/oddities (6 improperly mixed, 3 misaligned dies)

    12 Canadians (1967 memorial, 1968, 1973, 1980, 1981, 1987, 1989, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998)

    15 2009 commemorative

    1899 Indian head

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    BOX 7 Gotten Dec 11 2017

    438 copper (17.52%)

    4 Wheaties (1945, 1946D, 1953D, 1957D)

    12 errors/oddities (5 improperly mixed, 6 misaligned dies, 1 unknown possibly missing clad layer)

    5 Canadians (1978, 1981, 1986, 1996, 1999)

    45 2009 commemorative

    1996 Panama cent

    There is a chance I will be getting a camera for/right around Christmas. Then I'll be taking lots of pictures! I don't think my 18 year old webcam is capable, haha.

    Last boxes of the year, bringing my total up to 10. (yes, ten boxes for a year.. I know haha) Finished these last two today, but I did technically get them from the bank before the 1st, so I think they count.

    In other news, my camera is on its way and should be here next week sometime. I hope you're all ready for a massive barrage of pictures.

    BOX 9 (2500 pennies)

    345 copper (13.8%)

    6 possible errors/oddities (3 misaligned dies, 2 improperly mixed, 1 struck through grease)

    8 Canadians (1964, 1968, 1979X2, 1987, 1998, 2000, 2003)

    8 2009 commemorative

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    BOX 10 (2500 pennies)

    267 copper (10.68%)

    6 Wheaties (1916, 1917, 1940S, 1945, 1946S, 1953S)

    I am very excited. Although I do expect the vast majority of the random oddities I have gathered to actually end up being junk, I look forward to the learning experience. Maybe I've even got a few real treasures in there.

    What would be the best way to post pictures? I don't really want to spam the board with a hundred+ pictures or anything silly like that. Unless that is cool here?

    It looks like I got two boxes of 2017 D's for this week, or at least every single end is a 2017D. Will update if there is anything interesting.. looks likely to be a skunk though.

    Got my new camera today, bit of a 'systems test' to make sure I understand how this all works. I'm noticing right away the lighting is a little weird (mostly because the camera needs to be properly mounted.. this stand is not so great.)

    Coin pictured is a 1996 Panama cent.

    Not bad. Try to get the light coming from the top and see if that helps.

    Shiny: please keep the BOX SCORE RESULTS format the same on all future boxes. Its interesting to see how the numbers shift up & down over time. Does any of your banks sell BAGS off the machine, those numbers would be interesting to see. Keep up the good work.
