The first time I gave it to my 11 year old "coin nut" nephew said it was the best gift of coins he ever recieved. Naturally, I stocked up for future gifts! However, after purchasing 2 more bags for him, there was only about 1 coin in each bag that he got excited about. The 11 year old told me it might not be worth the price. However, I have no knowledge of "cool coins" so I appreciate the ease of purchasing this gift in hopes that there's a good coin he can get excited about!

I ordered this item was very disappointed. It is mostly wheat pennies from the 40s and 50s, which are easy to find in your own change. Much more concerning was that one of the coins was a silver colored, highly clean and shiney 1958 wheat penny. Wheat pennies are not supposed to be silver, except for 1943 steel pennies - I am very concerned that this item is not being properly verified for authenticity in the coinage. I have not been able to find even a mistake in minting that could explain this silver colored penny, so I really would not recommend any coins for Overstock.com unless they are able to confirm that these are U.S. mint coins that have not been tampered with.
