    Lower mintage for one, only in the millions and not Billions as in regular years. Also the two hundredth anniversary birthday of Lincoln, and the 100th anniv of the Lincoln cent, the 4-varieties produced. Save and collect the best ones only if you wish too.

    Shuda been 2.5 for a zinc, so an under weight copper?

    Now that's very interesting and did you get any of the high$ ones slabbed?

    Impressive #'s at over half a bag a day, every day of the week, on average.

    No, I don't. I kept track of % through my first 100,000, but after that stopped caring about copper, besides Wheats and IHC.

    Yeah, not 100% sure on that one. I think it is technically within the weight allowances for a copper. I haven't had any slabbed, just put them in flips in an album. May put my 100yo wheats into their own Hillman book, for now just have the wheats in tubes by date, canadians in a ziploc (besides the King George VIs in a tube and dates in 2 books), and the 2009s in ziploc bags.

    Thanks and yes it is. I believe it is 10% either way.
