    Boy, did JJ ever nail it. Wasn’t the ’43 copper every kids dream? Nowadays it’s just finding a wheat penny, at least for those same kids.

    Ah.. the mythical coin. How about a 1914D or a three legged buffalo?

    How can Janis let $200,000 – $300,000 slip through her fingers like that. And they say pennies are worthless.

    Not collecting brings a huge dearth of anxiety.

    I thought the 1943 pennies were made of steel, not copper.

    A couple years ago, my wife decided I could take the change jars to the bank. Dumped them all into a counter – over 1300 coins! 90% pennies.

    Well, it’s no mystery with the alleged coin shortage. Banks in my area still won’t accept personally rolled coins anymore. You must use the coin sorters and pay a fee for the privilege. Most of us had lots of free time during 2020 to roll our own (coins that is). Plus lots of the bank lobbies were closed – had to use the drive-thru or ATMs.

    One of my biggest life regrets (regerts? ☺), is when I used several of my coin books to buy a pellet gun. The only reason I still have a few collections is that I didn’t need them for that stupid gun…

    Change? What’s that? No place accepts cash anymore.

    I have a 1943 zinc coated steel penny that has doubled in value since 1943.

    I looked through many a roll for a 1943 bronze penny, which are worth a mint. Have a few of the steel ones including an uncirculated set.

    I remember sorting coins with my dad and he’d sing ‘If I had a nose full of nickles, I’d sneeze them all at you!"

    My grandmother’s sister was a “princess”. Aunt Clara never, ever bent over to pick up anything from the day she and Uncle Al moved into their home in 1944, until she died. When she died, the rugs were lumpy from used Kleenex, pieces of newspaper, and old coins. Liberty dimes. silver quarters, buffalo nickels, you name it. Hubby was working for a bank then, and he and my brother-in-law both told Mum to leave the coins until they had a chance to go through them.

    Mum took a half a bread bag of old coins, rolled them – and put them in the church offering plate!

    Most change I find now is on the ground at the Drive Thru Window of Fast Food Restaurants and parking lots where people look for their keys and a coin falls out….stupidly, I used to not pick up pennys unless they were heads up.

    You know the coin machines in the store where you can run your change through and get a slip to be redeemed for cash? I saw inside one when it was being emptied once. They separate and count the various coins but then dump all of them together into a large bin. The actual separation into coins of different value is done when they run them through a coin sorter again at the vault. We have a strange economy.

    You would be hard pressed to find a penny in Canada, except in coin collections. We eliminated them. Next the nickel!

    This strip is a little dated. Nowadays you can go to Wally World or a local supermarket, dump your coins into the sorter, and for no charge get a slip to redeem at the customer service counter for the value of the coins. The machine even spits out things like bus tokens that might have been mixed up with the coins.

    Most pennies in 1943 were steel. I have a few.

    1943 copper pennies are rare. Only a small amount were made. Then the rest were made from steel.

    In 1943 the government needed the copper to make ammunition, so they made pennies from steel instead of copper.
