Dude got into an argument with his boss and quit. Over 91,000 pennies covered in oil dumped in his driveway. Someone should educate him on copper and numismatic value.

I would have the boss arrested immediately for dumping hazardous material on my property.

A good attorney--working for free--might be able to construct a case whereby the oil or grease used to coat the cents would be found to pose an unacceptable environmental issue/hazard at the location where they were dumped. Hold the ex-employer accountable for cleanup. Maybe a fine.

Would be funny if a few highly knowledgeable Lincoln cent experts devoted a day to sorting though the coins--only to find a few of the better DDOs/DDRs/etc. Could generate a few hundred $$ above face value for the entire pile.

We have two choices here:
1. Bring in the lawyers.
2. Bring in the error hunters.

Both would need a lot of time, but the second choice would be much cheaper.

I don't condone what the boss did but all the employee needs is a couple of gallons of Acetone . Give a good soak and then dump them out on a large clean surface .

T-BOP -- Was thinking the same thing, acetone in a well-ventilated area.

Saw this on my news feed, had a feeling it would be posted before I got here.

In a bit of irony, I wonder how many of these cents would be considered greasers?

Bio Hazard, violates numerous anti dumping laws
Trespass with intent and more .
Also the guy paid can keep the pennies and is
Still owed his final pay cheque , not legal tender for
the amount .
A good Pro Bono would a field day with this one!
The boss is a real beauty !

Yep. If you poured motor oil down the storm sewer, you've broken the law, and that's likely where the oil on the coins is headed...

This guy should call his ex-employer and tell them his lawyer strongly advises that they come over and pick up the pennies. Oh, and bring a check with you as well!
