Copper $65 a kilo...

There could be a 1930 penny in this lot...

$2400 in scrap metal could be yours for just $17,980. Don't miss out on this bargain.

well it depends really if they are pre-demcial pre-1940 hapeny's and penny then maybe fair but I doubt it. Whats more is how the heck are you suppose to buy it and then move it? plus he saying that he bought for 30K which is O,o silly.

@ryurazu - And why apparently spend that much money on pennies and ha'pennies if you have no intention of searching for rare coins? IMHO this guy has already pulled out most worthwhile coins and any semi-rare coins will be very low grade.

@David Graham I try to give him the benefit of the doubt. However I change my mind, since I contacted him on gumtree, postage alone is $1500 for whole amount 310KG thats 4.83 dollars per kg ..... for mail. oh well.

Even if he packed it into 62x 5kg AP satchels it's ~$2 a kg. Freighted as a pallet would be even cheaper still.
Nah, the way the ad was written smelt of snake oil salesman. It's scrap copper and nothing more.
