A few weeks ago I put myself on the waiting list for John Adams coins at my local Wachovia branch. I happened to be in the bank this past weekend, so I asked if they had any available, despite not having heard from them. The tellers were able to come up with three rolls.
I opened one roll to look for Mint errors, but each coin was properly struck. There were also no black-toned coins like the one in this recent auction that sold for $45.
I didn’t find any strange forehead error coins. This one sold for over $70.
It’s still the double strike error that is going on eBay for almost $400. I didn’t find one of these, either.
