    What to do with damaged coins?

    Can you take damaged clad to local banks or do they have to go to the mint? Of course I'm really talking about these crappy zinc pennies that seem to dissolve within days. Thanks in advance.

    I write "damaged" on each roll and exchange them at the bank. They should take them, although some banks tell you the damaged coins must be taken to a Federal Reserve bank. Some banks just don't want to deal with them, but it is part of their job anyway to secure damaged money and turn it over to the those banks.

    Good luck!!

    I take mine to the local bank, they haven't said a word about their condition.
