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 red brown 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.

Locating original rolls, especially from the 1930s, is becoming increasingly difficult to do. And the beauties offered here have been accumulated over time fromrecent purchases.
