[EDIT: Value of copper already mentioned by Dado in post #17, and may be a motivator to accept a large quantity provided you have the technology to separate the copper cents from the steel stuff currently pounded out by the mint.]


And guess what, YOU HAVE NO Clue what youre talking about.
Copper Penies no longer exist. They are 99% zinc. Enjoy your garbage metal.
