I bought a little bag of shredded BU Lincoln cents off ebay. Honestly didn't know what they were and listing title didn't help much: Roll of Shredded Muiliob Lincoln Cents US Man Made Mint Metal Error WOW! RARE!

So can anyone explain these? I've seen dates from 1960-D, 1970-D, 199X-D and 1997. So some are zinc and should rule out someone trying to make bullion. I just dunno. Paid less than $2.50 for 5.5 ounces of this stuff including shipping.

Shredded Lincoln cents - any ideas?

Does the mint shred coins that are meant to be re-smelted?

I believe they just waffle them not shred them. Probably accidentally got shredded or something.

Or they were going to melt them and then discovered they are not all copper, but zinc ones were in the mix, so rather than sort them, they sold them off?
