    An elementary school in our area did a pennies for patients collection for leukemia and lymphoma and cashed all the change in at our bank.The vault teller asked if we wanted the pennies to search...we also searched the nickel,dimes and quarters...$2,600.00 total.From the dimes,nickels and quarters we found several silver dimes and nickels...no silver quarters.So far we have found one IH,one 43 steel a bunch of wheats (a 1918 just a few minutes ago) and I'm guessing around $50 in copper.We have 13 bags left to search.

    A question here - my poor eyes and date checking....

    Do you date check every single memorial - is there an easier way to sort out copper cents versus zinc? I don't know of one....

    And then 82's - some are zinc....

    Well, Mook, looks like you've got 'your work cut out for you' for the undetermined future. I hope you find a lot of goodies. That's a lot of pennies!

    DeepseekerADS, I've got a scale that I weight the '82s on. Of course, 3.11 grams for copper and 2.5 grams for zinc. I can actually weigh a roll of pennies and tell if there are any coppers in it. I've been finding probably 8 to 10 coppers in each roll I've gone through these last few weeks. I don't do CRH every day. I also have the little USB microscopes for viewing 'interesting' coins. Both scale and 'scope cost me less than $40.

    Yes we date check every coin.Their are machines out there that will separate the copper from the zinc...the ryedale is one of them.The 82's we weigh with a gram scale...3.11 grams copper and 2.5 grams zinc.

    I went "low tech" to check the '82s. I fastened a zinc cent to one end of a popsicle stick and a tiny little bar on the underside exactly in the middle to balance it on. When I put a cent on the opposite end of the stick if it goes down it's copper. If it doesn't it's zinc. It wasn't my idea - I may have read it on T-net. I can't remember.

    You can buy a ryedale to help you search faster, but they cost $500!

    So, if you search $12,500 in pennies and 20% are copper and you net 1.2 cents per penny after selling them on ebay/craig's list
    you will have earn enough to pay for your ryedale.
    ($12,500 x 20% x 0.2 = $500)
    At that volume you want to be able to buy bags of pennies. Unrolling $12,500 in pennies would be a drag! ($12,500 in pennies is 25,000 penny rolls)
