For sale are $25 bank boxes of copper pennies. Current spot price is $3.84 per pound, making each cent worth over 2.5x face value. A $25 box is currently worth $63.65.

I am selling each box for $50 each, shipping included.

Payment by check or money order.

I can also accomodate any size order.

I see your point, but is it not still illegal to melt U.S Nickels, and pennies?

It is not illegal to save them, sell them etc. You just cannot melt them. It was the same thing for silver coinage back during the mid-1960's.

Just pointing out that I never mentioned anything about melting them, nor is there any reason to melt them.

I'm just selling $25 bank boxes, 50 rolls per box. No melting involved.

Melt is $62.50.

So $55 per box shipped is not too much, and is cheaper than any of the other dealers selling copper bullion.

All of the cents are pre-1982. Years and mintmarks are of course mixed.

It's pretty straight forward, same deal as junk silver.

My local B&M dealer has a bin
"Pre-1982 Copper Cents ......3c Ea."
You don't have to melt to sell/trade.
Copper will trade like Silver.......someday.

I remember years ago, We used ten lbs of silver as a doorstop, same applies here, 95% copper that's a deal! China is stocking copper by the warehouse , there's got to be a reason for that. All hard commodities are a store of value these days, that includes copper. Should our economy pick-up, you'll see copper going thru the roof.!

Here in So. Cal... My yield has been around 15 ~ 20% of copper cents vs. zinc ones from the bank.

Even if not melting them, I think you are over priced. I get rolls at face value at my bank and pull them out at my leisure. I can't see someone pay your price at this point in time. Maybe in ten years or so.

1. Most dealers are currently selling either at spot or higher. I am selling far below spot.

2. Many people don't have time to sort through thousands of rolls, and then they don't like rolling the zincs and taking them back to the bank.

3. What price do you think is fair?

Just my 2 cents. If you have solid date boxes and note them as such, then $55 delivered seems fine to me.

If they're mixed date, then I'd drop it to $45.

Copper up to $3.83 per pound, making a $25 box worth $63.46.

Since some board members think that I am overpriced even though my price beats all others online, I'm dropping the price to $50 shipped per box.
You can also order a specific number of rolls or a speciic number of pounds if you wish. Just PM or email me.

I think it's more than fair. It takes a long time to sort. There is alot of eye strain involved, hand cramps, your hands turn black, it's a dirty job.

In the end you get a nice clean bank box of solid copper at far less than melt. Don't forget I have to lug hundreds of pounds of zinc cents back to the bank.
