If I'm not mistaken, melting down copper cents is currently illegal..


Very true..Thus the reason for my post as I felt it was insinuated by another member that this was my intention for telling the OP to save ALL of his copper Cents. I merely made my comment of keeping all of the copper Cents in respect that the Mint will never make copper Cents again. And having a hoard of them would possibly be beneficial to heirs. I guess I should have explained myself in more detail as opposed to having my comment taken completely out of context.

Now I see from where come your coins. I think that you has some semi-date or full dates. Look for the errors also, I find more errors in those albums then others places. For the copper, at this moment could not be sell. Till a coin it is a legal tender, any intentionally ablation or intentionally damages is done on them, it is a federal offence. I will wait for the copper because I am sure the mint will start to buy back the coins at metal price. When? No one know.

My big thing is touches! If I'm going to touch a coin I want to minimize the number of looks it gets. So when I sort they immediately go into years/mints and then into a drawer organizer such as this

From there it is about familiarity with year "issues" (Weschler's, VV, CC.) and
then ieach coin is reviewed and in a roll or a 2x2 or album. I'm currently struggling with how much to keep as well. Depending on the numbers, I may fill a book and sell.

How could they tell if you had melt some copper cents? The tin/zinc present would be the tell tale sign that they were melted cents.(Very small percentage though)
