    Penny CRH?

    So I think I have decided to search some pennies but is there any key dates to look for besides indian head and wheats?

    Alot of people keep the S mints (1968 - 1974) as they arent as common as the others.
    Any other S mints on LMC would be proof coins and probably worth keeping as well.
    2009 are also collected for their relatively low mintages and scarcity.
    Some hoard copper (1959-1982, not all 82's are 95% copper though). These can sell for a small premium because of their copper content.

    There are also some errors from these years (A Comprehensive Web Encyclopedia of U.S. Copper Coinage) seems to be a good resource but other may have a better one.

    Keep what you find interesting. The only cents i keep are wheats/indian heads/foreign

    More than a small premium 50% return. Its not worth sorting though manually for copper though, and it takes longer than you'd expect even with a comparator

    You mean it's not worth it for you to sort through manually. There are plenty of people on here who disagree...

    I sort manually while searching for wheats. It's not hard, just two bags to drop them into. Set the wheats/Canadian aside, use an empty coin box for the copper, put the non copper in my dump bag. No extra time involved, really.

    Took me six weeks form when I got my ryedale to when I sold enough pennies with enough profit to PAY for the Ryedale. true story. I can't say that about my White's MD. I've sold a lot since then, and am hoarding now, waiting for a hopeful rise again in prices, but I;m way ahead of the game. IN 2011, I calculated it that I was earninga bout $7 per hour from sorting, selling and dumping coppers. Not agreat, but that doesn't include the wheats or IH and it also comes form something that i ENJOY. Can't say I "make" money from golf, as it costs me money to play. So for those that say that is a low hourly wage - so what? It beats payng $90 for four hours of fun on the course. And having a machine that paid for itself in six weeks? Awesome!

    Exactly, and I was saying it for advice to almost anyone with a sense of logic. If you sort through pennies, for copper ones manually, you have too much time on your hands. The longest part of sorting through a roll for me now, (for copper anyways) is unwrapping the roll. Its maddening looking through a pile of pennies sorting coppers and non-coppers; simply because there are so many coppers.

    AG in halves,quarters,dimes take only seconds to open and see if their is AG or not. Copper, you basically need to dump all the pennies on the table and look at the dates. I'd like the people who actually sort copper pennies with their hands to chime in and tell me what exactly they intend to do with their hand sorted copper? I know there are people who disagree, but I doubt there are 'plenty' of them...

    Same thing you intend to do, sell it when there is a buyer at a good price. It's a hobby for me, not a business. I'm not going to invest in a rye dale, I am still focusing on AG. The pennies are a way to pass time when I am out of other coins to search, or want to slow down the pace.

    I agree. I hand search pennies and i do it when silvers not available. Ive sold hand sorted coppers locally. Nothing but profit, ive thought about getting a machine and decided nah, it wod take the thrill away from me. I like looking at every coin. You never know what you might toss in a machine and give to a buyer.

    I made about $1000 in profit from hand sorting pennies in the past 18 months. I bought silver and gold with the money I made while watching TV with my wife. I also found a lot of coins for my two Dansco penny albums.
