Mint Sewn Bag: 5000 1973-S cents


Recommended Posts

My dad probably bought this because of the (relatively) low mintage and because it was one of the last years that S.F. minted business strike cents. I found the invoice: $92.50 ppd in Jan. 1974.


I can't decide whether to hang on to the unopened bag or give in to temptation and open it. Is it even possible to peek without getting carried away?

I have some bags from the Denver mint, but they were opened and I got them a lot later. Now they store British pennies. I use a 1963 Royal Canadian Mint bag(curiously they shipped $60 worth of cents in it) for all my cent hauls to and from the banks. I stopped using the 1925 North of Scotland linen bag after I nearly left it at the bank.
