In my opinion, they are worth too little to save. Just keep the pristine examples and throw the others back.
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

I was wondering about this also. I only came across one. A 2001. Kept it for the collection.

I keep one of each year from each mint, otherwise I would have about $100 worth of NIFCs

people go both ways on this one, some say worth .50 some say above because they have to be ordered from the mint. I have been threatning to make a page of 9 or 12 inside of the little cardboard slots and take them to an auction house. minimum bid would be face value, anything over would be a bonus and let you know where NIFC clad halves stand no bid or above bid, People will buy anything just depends on how you package and present it.
If it were easy and we scored keepers everytime it would be called Coin Roll Picking not Coin Roll Hunting.

I think the 2001s were originally supposed to be NIFC but were at some point released, so these aren't truly NIFC. NIFCs are 1987 and 2002-present for halves.

If I kept every NIFC I found my car payment wouldnt be made this month. If i kept every pristine really nice example my $3k crh bankroll would be gone already. Way too prevalent and wont be worth much in our lifetimes.
