I began accumulating choice and gem brilliant uncirculated rolls of Lincoln Cents through Franklin Half Dollars in the early 1960’s. This was when the BU roll market was exploding, and prices were doubling or more every few weeks.
I’ve accumulated over 100 bags (10,000+ rolls) representing at least a few hundred different dates during this 50-year period. It is possibly the largest hoard of its kind in existence! I was always a very “picky” buyer, and probably rejected two inferior rolls for each nice one I purchased. Now the time has come when I must sell them. I’ve evaluated all selling methods; dealers, various auctions, the media or other advertising, and I’ve decided to offer them directly to collectors and investors first.
Probably about 30% of my hoard are bank-wrapped rolls just as they came from banks or the Federal Reserve. I also have a number of original Federal Reserve or bank-sealed bags. In fact, among the many rolls I bought from my friend the legendary Harry Forman, I have several original, sealed bags of 50+ year-old Lincoln Cents. Harry was the largest dealer of BU rolls in the U.S for many years. He was from Philadelphia, acquired his coins first-hand from the Mint, and published two books on Brilliant Uncirculated Rolls.
I acquired my hoard because I viewed these stunning rolls as enormously undervalued. Today, I believe this is even more true because the clear majority of BU rolls and uncirculated bags that were saved decades ago, have already been used to complete sets. Or, if they were silver, were melted. This is despite the fact many of the rolls cost less than they sold for years ago. One day the remaining rolls and few bags will all be gone after being broken up and used as single specimens. Fortunately for my buyers, they can acquire great rolls at low prices.
My tubed rolls are comparable with OBW rolls. Because of the fragile nature of the paper coin wrappers, the coins in many of my tubed rolls came from OBW rolls whose paper either tore or split opened.
I’m certain there are numerous MS67 and even MS68 coins that will be found in these rolls, as well as fabulous, desirable and valuable errors and over-dates. I hope you’re among the lucky ones to find some of them!
I take great pride in the quality of these rolls, but also in delivering exceptional service. If you feel I’ve fallen short in any category, please immediately let me know. I will do everything in my power to satisfy you.
