Customer Reviews

During the Great Depression, most Americans didn't have two cents to rub together. And if they did, chances are they spent them. That's why it's so unusual to come across elusive 1930's cents from original rolls – still in Mint State condition, with beautiful original luster and color. These early "Wheaties" were hardworking coins. Back then, a loaf of bread was only 8¢, and folks relied on copper coins to buy necessities.

Minted over 75 years ago, locating original rolls, especially from the 1930s, is becoming increasingly difficult to do. And the beauties offered here have been accumulated over time from recent purchases. It's a great opportunity to upgrade or expand your collection, but don't wait – Depression-era cents from original rolls don't come along often, and these will go fast!
