ATTENTION GLP Preppers and Metal Freaks Alike! START Saving Your Pennies and Nickels! Here's Why.
OK here's what to save:
1.) ALL pennies 1982 or older (obviously wheat, and Indian Head pennies have a greater numismatic value), but an average 82 or older are 95% copper and 5% zinc. TRASH anything after '82 because it's close to the opposite amalgamation (copper coated zinc).

Those '82 pennies are worth $.0307 EACH! Imagine a penny being worth 3 cents! SAVE 'EM FOLKS!

2.) ALL Nickels CURRENT and older, because of the increase in the price of nickel recently are worth almost TWICE their face value.
$1.00 of these are currently worth $1.73!

I find it funny that MOST stores currently have a "change shortage".

I think the government is culling as many of these coins as possible, artificially creating this "shortage" while they replace the valuable coins with worthless pieces of SHIT.

NOTE: There are only 2 US coins that are not allowed to be melted down. 1 is the penny, the other is the nickel. I smell a rat here.

The ONLY saving grace is you're allowed to melt them down for scientific purposes or demonstrations.

I will personally be SCIENCING the SHIT out of my neighborhood!

Hope this helps if even a bit.

Reference: www.coinflation.com (base metal melt value calculation)

EDIT for a decimal point error. Pennies (pre 82) are STILL worth 3.07 cents EACH!

Edited for the CRYBABIES who THOUGHT I was misleading people. I stand corrected! I was going with the info I had based on Coinflation's data (they only list up to 2014).

I have 67 pounds (tare weight because of the container) of pre 82 pennies, and being a GC, I save EVERY scrap of wire and copper tubing (over 200 pounds raw).

I've only been doing nickels for about 6 months, but almost EVERY roll I get from the weekly bank visit yields 100%, now that I know ALL nickels have the same composition since '46.

AGAIN, I was ONLY going on information I had access to.

I was ONLY trying to help, not mislead people, so all your red karma phaygs can piss the fuck off and FUCK YOU for bashing someone TRYING to HELP people!

Trade in person! This will catch on sooner than you think as soon as the general population finds out their pre-82 pennies are currently worth $.0307 (a week ago they were worth $.033 when copper hit $4.80 a pound!

Illegal? not in the least. you can legally sort coins any way you like and sell them to anyone who wants them.

the bank he worked at felt differently and they parted ways... good for him.

About 10-15 years ago I would ALWAYS cash a check and ask for a few rolls of quarters to cash out with. I'd almost ALWAYS hit between 2-4 (as many as 10) pre 65 quarters (90% silver).

That came to a SCREECHING halt shortly thereafter! LOL

Nickel is a catalyst metal

not a coin metal

same as palladium

it might reach 1000% before gold even gets to 3000$

You do know that a nickel is NOT made of nickel, right? I have no pennies and no nickels, I get rid of my coins by providing exact change when I shop. I've always thought it's pretty dumb to have coins loose in a jar. I know people in the country have jars upon jars of pennies. Ridiculous!

Regardless. The amount of "nickel" in a PRE 2014 US nickel is worth more than it's face value by more than 50%!

I have containers filled with coins, because I always dump my pocket change into them.

Someday I might go through them to find any coins of value.

I started saving them after these dreams I had about 15 years ago, where common coins become very valuable.

I have a bunch of old silver coins that I've saved since the 1960s. My silver and gold coins are strictly for emergency use only. I don't really care what the daily values are, and I never look.
