10 Roll Cent Break

 I purchased 10 rolls of pennies last week from my bank and these are the results: 

  • Wheat Cents: 9 
  • "S" Mint Marks: 6
  • Copper Lincoln Memorial Cents: 25%
  • Total EF - AU Coins For Albums: 10
  • Key Find: 1962 (AU)

Verdict: These were customer rolled cents and they produced odds results.  I found some really nice AU cents including a 1962, 1968, and 1973.  There were multiple "S" mint marks in the rolls.  On the other hand, many of the coins were severely corroded or run over by a car; including a 1973S that could of graded MS 65 (RD) if the face wasn't scratched off.  This lot of coins seems to of been from a hoard of cents that either fell in the street or got mixed with some pennies collected by the homeless.
