Ten Wheat Pennies I Scored From A Bank Box

I just finished going through another full box of pennies I bought from my bank. I'm fairly happy with the box because I found ten pennies in it. It's not what I would call a great set of finds but it's a lot better than the last two boxes I went through where I found almost nothing of value. I've been running really low on spare time lately so it can take me several days to find enough free time to completely unwrap fifty penny rolls like this. With my job combined with my family responsibilities I just can't seem to finish one of these in just one sitting. I was able to run out and grab more change today though. I had to get the rest of my rent money together so this gave me a good excuse to grab more change to go through. I should have two more posts up soon to share with you what I've found.

Anyway, below there are two pictures to show you the wheat pennies I pulled from this coin roll hunt. There were a total of five pennies from the forties and five from the fifties in this haul. It's always nice to find some older ones like these but I would really like to get some from the teens and twenties. The forties were two 1945 coins with no mint mark. One 1949, a 1942 and a 1942D. Some great pre-war pennies here. The fifties wheat pennies were a 1953D, 1956D, 1957, 1957D and a 1958. I don't see anything with a huge monetary value here but I'm just starting to learn what to look for so please post a comment if you ever see me miss a good find.

In other news I do believe I will be able to start getting together some rolls to give away soon. Remember that you will need to be a member of my World Community Grid team to be able to participate in these giveaways.
