    My third 1940-S with a retained cud in as many days.

    This morning I finished searching the 100 customer rolls I scored last week. All but 16 were copper coins, including 266 wheat pennies. When I opened the very last roll I found another 1940-S with a retained cud on the lower right wheat stalk. This lot has to be one of the best I’ve searched in many years. Three retained cuds in three days is pretty amazing to me.

    Very impressive numbers out of those rolls, congrats!! This one was kinda tough! There were several that were close including Bob's 02 but I think I've narrowed it down to 15 or 67. See what you guys think.

    Congrats Mark! Wow... three retained cuds in three days is awesome! You have really been working hard on these 100 customer rolls and what a nice number of coppers and wheats! I think Jon has done a great job to help you narrow this one down to 15 and 67. I'm not sure because the pics of 67 on COC's it is hard to tell exactly where the die crack terminates on the south end, but to me it looks to be a tad lower than 15. What do you guys think?

    Not sure. Those were the only two I felt had a shot. It maybe a new one.

    Nice find... Does not appear to be COCs http://cuds-on-coins.com/lincoln-cen...ed-cuds-1940s/ 15 or 67??? The exit points from the stalk on the north and south ends do not match... By the looks of it I think it is new???
