What does everyone do with their wheaties?

I used to save mine, but, then I just started tumbling them with the rest of my clad to bring to the coin star or bank. Now I've just been tossing them in the trash. I know, I know, I had to work DAMN hard for those pennies, but, I have soooo much 'stuff' around from over the years, the items of least significance has to go. Unless of course they are mis-strikes, keys or semis.

What do you guys do with them?

No, not Indians...not in a million years. Just the memorials & wheats. I know, kinda crazy, but, that's me Tongue

Ray, lets pool our wheats & save up for a CTX. You can use it one week, then send it to me, and vice versa, lol.

So you would cherish a 1908 penny and throw a 1909 in the trash. That makes no sense.

Well, Indian heads are a thing of beauty to me, one of the best designs ever. Don't get me wrong, I still have bags & bags of wheats tucked away, but, on my hunts nowadays, I only find a handful per outting, a fair amount of which are toasted, so, instead of hoarding 5 here, or 6 there, I just trash'm.

Well, I still save all my Wheaties.  Every couple years I tumbrel them all and throw them in another bucket!! Happy

I rarely even check dates before tumbling as I figure they came out of the ground and numismatic value is zilch.  But every now and then if a clean one pops out I will make sure it is not a 09 S VDB.  Never found one of those yet!  Got a few 09S but no VDB

The shiny wheats sit in the garage somewhere!! next to the bucket of clad, next to the bucket of relics etc

I tumbled a bunch once, and found out there was 5 or6 indians hiding in the wheat pile.
