How do you tell apart Zinc and Copper Cents?


Recommended Posts

Just use a popsicle stick/tongue depressor to make a balance. Make sure that it's level with two know cents -- something like two 2002 cents. When it's balanced., remove one of the know cents. When you put your 82 cent on if it's heavier it's copper. Same it's zinc.
