    I just found 70 pennies with the same die crack error!

    Today i picked up 5 dollars in pennies. After opening the first roll i found 7 pennies with the same die crack error.

    I posted that find in the CRH forum to see if finds like that were unusual.

    I never really got a clear answer but was encouraged to try and use the pennies to show the die crack progress.

    so, After opening the other 9 rolls i wound up with 70 pennies displaying the exact same die crack!

    With so many coins of like errors i should be able to show a pretty good die crack progress

    So this is my find for the day

    Happy hunting everyone!

    I was thinking of going back to the bank tomorrow. The bank is small and i know the teller very well. When i first posted, i had no idea i would find 70. Every single role had them.

    Thanks everyone! Now, what do i do with them? I am pretty new to coin roll hunting so this might be something that roll hunters see a lot of. If it is, do they hang on to the error coins, split them up, sell them as a lot or just release them back into the wild?

    I know the error in and of itself is pretty much worthless but several of the same errors might be worth a penny or two.

    Many 95-96 p halves have a crack coming off Kennedy's neck at the bottom of the bust. I have so many in good shape I stopped collecting them and
    even dumped some. I assume that there being so many out there they would be worthless. If there were buyers I'd be in business lol.
