    Were these rolls bank wrapped or consumer wrapped?
    I find it odd that the mint designated to produce the best of the nation's coinage (Proofs) would add a step to deface ,and add production cost to the rest.

    My guess is that they were shipped from San Francisco on a freight train and joggled/jiggled in a mint bag all the way to a Cincinnati or Dayton, Ohio bank, where they were then hand wrapped by a bank employee wearing latex gloves. There is no sign of being touched by human hand on any of the coins.

    Almost all of the 500 cents look like they were tumbled in a concrete mixer for a day or two, ....probably so they would not be taken out of circulation and hoarded by collecters.
    Never heard of this....please explain.

    I can't really explain it, neither! ..... but I was very disappointed to see so many poor quality coins from a mint that were never in circulation.
