20 years of wheaties

Went through my jars full of wheaties and separated them by years. First pile on far left is 1909-1919, next pile is 1920-1929, next 1930-1939, next the big pile,1940-1949 and last is the 1950s. Look how huge the 1940s pile is. The 20s and 30s were tough times as shown by the amount of wheaties from those decades show. Quite a lot of 1909-1919 wheaties. I didn't count them but I'm guessing around 1000 wheaties. That is a lot of bending over and diggin :D All the coins you see at the top of the photo are various indian heads and v nickels and what not that were mixed in the jar for some reason. Some foreign coins as well. Found a civil war patriotic token mixed in with them that I didn't know about, that was fun.

Clean them up and sell them, they are worth 3 cents each. Keep any rare/key dates.
Remember they aren’t paying rent in your drawer.

Well, if there are about 1000 wheaties at .03 cents that would only be $30. I'll hold em. I have some 1909 VDBs but no S mint marks. I also "had" a 1914 D but I sold that one on ebay along with some of the other key date ones.

That's for sure. Whenever I find a depression era coin, I can imagine the agony the owner must have felt when its loss was discovered.

I found a 1922 silver dollar-- which was minted and lost right after the violent deflation of the 1920-21 depression. The agony that must have been felt in that little schoolhouse which was moved and converted into a home...
