I wonder if there are any wheat cents in that lot ? I'd go for it but I don't think they make a $4,000 postage stamp .

$60,000 in face value for $98,000. Value in copper metal about $160,000. Certainly a quicker way to get copper coins. Imagine trying to sort throught boxes from the bank. Personally I would have some major storage issues!

I buy wheats at 2 cents each and wholesale them for 3 cents each.

IF they were all wheats, which they most assuradly are not, I could make $82,000 on this deal. Also it would take years to sort through them all. This I speak from experiance. I have sorted over 2 million wheats in the last 9 years. Sure some would be culls and others worth more, but it would be a nice chunk of change per year...if they were all wheaties.

This deal is probably something you would be lucky to break even with.

Is it still illegal to melt US copper cents and pour them into bars, rounds, etc?

For some reason, this reminds me of coin dealer Robert Friedberg who had SEVEN MILLION 1955-S Lincoln Cents stored in a vault.
