I have $60 face value of pre-82 copper pennies to sell,, and am looking to sell them for 2 cents each or best offer, buyer pays $10 for shipping, so the total price would be $130 for $60 coppers, and the melt value is about $150, according to www.coinflation.com. I was going to sell the on eBay but I only had $100 for the venture, and am running out of money to buy new pennies with, and am at the point where I can only buy one box at a time.
I am sure most of you know the investment value of this, since the price of copper has tripled over the last three years, and is expected to go up even further.
I would normally save them, but am going through college, and do this in my spare time to cover some of the costs.

(Is this thread breaking any rules? :confused: )

don't see as breaking any rules. as libertarians we believe in free markets and capitalism.

maybe there should be a category for threads likes this.

there is a different category, it's called ebay.

This is pure spam. Unless the poster is going to use the profits to donate to the campaign, it has no bearing on this forum.

Well, if this thread had been placed in the [Economics & Sound Money] area, it may be a bit more acceptable. We are always looking for people who wish to sell bullion in that area.
If the person wishes to sell his bullion, I for one would like to know before he sells it on Ebay.

However, I am not looking for pennies. Gold and silver would be much better IMO.

eBay is robbery. And I am sure there are enough smart investment-thinking people on here for me to sell these. And it is helping me pay my way through college :)

Just so you know, they passed a law banning private melting of the penny and the nickel.

That is true, however the penny will most likely be discontinued, and even before that the fiat empire this economy is built around will probably collapse.

Still, they're quite useful as copper pennies for a SHTF scenario. The content and quality are well know. If my SHTF plans had me staying in the same location, I'd be pretty interested in buying copper pennies to hold onto in their current form. And if something catastrophic happens, nobody will be out busting amateur smelting operations. They'd likely be more useful in trade anyway.
