  1. Wait just a minute here, you to tell me that my 2000 Cheerios Lincoln cent wont entirely bankroll my retirement home on Malibu Beach?

    1. Haha, I wish! But it’s the wrong Cheerios coin, the Sac dollar is the one everyone is gunning for.

  2. Hey BlueRidge I just wanted to say thankdvyiu . I use to not like your videos at all lol, it’s only because I have ADD so I want to get to the point but I have to say I have been looking forward to your videos within the last couple months. I love how you explain everything in detail . I realized I have so much to learn even though I’ve been collecting for over eight years now. I still learn things all the time because of videos like yours and research that I do on my own. Anyways just wanted to tell you thank you for the videos. They are very informative and very informational

    1. Appreciate Brian, some of my videos get long in the teeth. It’s important to get all the information out there as quickly and efficient as possible. Thanks again for hanging tough sir!

    2. I agree Blueridge Is a natural born Double Triple Grade A teacher explaining in detail and leaveing nothing by chance. He is my favorite . Simply the best at what he does !!!

  3. This was an awesome video, I almost wish it was 2 hours!!! Lol I can’t get enough!!! Keep them coming!!!! Thank you!!!

    1. You’re a rare breed coinhunter, most of my viewers would fall asleep at 20 minutes in lol. You’re welcome, appreciate the wonderful comments!

  4. I’ve managed to find every major double die error from 2011 to 2015 and I’ve also got a couple of nice 2017 p’s also that are doubled on the obverse that as far as I know haven’t been attributed yet.

    1. Outstanding Edrap, the 2010-2015 doubled dies are actually really nice. They have quite a nice spread for being a single squeeze process.

  5. Thanks for the info. Wasnt sure of key dates, because i hear others say “its a key date”. But you clarified it for me. I’ve been researching about different varieties for about two years and picking here and there mainly pocket change or from the cash box at my job. Im going to get a usb microscope to check the ones ive collected already, need to get some coin flips for the ones im planning to keep, and I Just purchased a unsearched roll of wheatties about two weeks ago from ebay. Seller has good feedback and a few years selling, so hoping for a good roll. And, i have to get some bank rolls, which I’ve been planning to do for the past year or so and never did. Oh, and need to get a cherrypickers guide. Anyways, like always, thanks for the extra info..hope all is well, and God Bless..

  6. Hi Blue-Great refresher. Always very grateful the time and knowledge you share. I AM Praying for a few big scores. I am so toasted from working six days a week. I handle coins and FRNS every day-a new batch. Looking through it all gives a reason to tolerate wasting anymore of my life there. I have seen the very poor quality of the 2000 and up pennies. They get the tiny little bit of “covering” that’s there scratched off real fast so I’ve kept hundreds of the best ones. I figure in 20 years I may need some liquidity and those beauties may be hard to come by-or they will be extinct and worth that much more.

  7. hey ts is great too here some one who cares ,thank you your knowledge is great and well done keep up the good work .,this helped me tremendously excuse my spelling .

  8. Once again you’ve added to the experience of this great new hobby of mine by reminding us of the various directions, avenues that are part of this experience and how truly fulfilling a hobby this can be. Continuously pointing out various directions that may or may not be endeavored, you’ve broadened the perspective for many of us. A true educator, you are! a profession as noble as they come… thanks again for your generosity in sharing this information. Your doing one hell of a great job. Keep up the good work… partner!

  9. I New for coin hunters…….but Thanks for your information two thumbs up…different any kinds of banks and store…searched for rare coin…

  10. I just found my first 1959 Liconln memorial metal detecting; I’ve never been more intrested in pennies, in my life! Great information thank you for sharing, I just Subscribed!

  11. Since the crappy shield pennies came out, the memorial cents look like antiques. They are no longer just pennies anymore, just like the old style nickels are not just nickels. More people are saving the old nickels now.
