What Does "Bank Wrapped BU Roll Of Nickels" Mean To You?

To me BU means not being in circulation. Got a roll of 63 Jeffersons
today from Ebay. Yes they are all bright and shiny (brilliant) , but
some definitely have circulation wear in Tom's coat lapels, and on the
triangle on the reverse. I'm Curious as to what this term means to
others?
"Bank Wrapped BU Roll Of Nickels" to me means in a fed wrapped
wrapper, (Yes the wrapper had a bank's name on it) never opened and
put into circulation. Oh well,***me once shame on you,***me
twice, shame on me!

Hi --

That's what it means to me, too.  Where'd they come from?

Are you factoring in the notoriously bad strike on many Jefferson nickels?
The triangle is not complete on a lot of uncirculated Jeffs because of
strike or die wear.   Bill

I just wrote a guy selling "bu bank wrapped rolls" on ebay, about the same
time as the earlier message posted, coincidentally enough, because he said
he had "bu bank wrapped rolls" but didn't say they were "unopened."  I had
written him to ask if they were unopened.  Just got his reply and he said
they had been opened.  I am betting it's the same guy Mickey got the roll
from.

An "unopened or original of fed wrapped" roll is like a box of chocolates

You never know what you are going to get

Just like "unopened proof and mint sets", I won't buy coins I can't see.

That just might not be "circulation wear" but rather a 'machine handling' wear.

True, but from your descript, I don't think you *were* 'screwed'.  You may have
been sold coins which could *not* attain any grade higher than MS60, but they
also are probably not "circulated" in most pro's opinions.]

...just mine.
