Given the rise in the price of copper, I decided to buy $20 worth of cents at the bank this morning. It took about one hour to go through them, roughly about a third of them were pre-1982 cents and will be saved. But I also found the following cents in the lot:

 

CANADA

George VI

1945

Elizabeth II

1956

1963 x 2

1964 x 3

 

USA

1940

1944

1944-D x 2

1945

1949

1953-D

1957

1957-D

1958-D for a total of 10 wheat cents.

 

S Mints

1968-S

1970-S

1972-S

1974-S x 3 for a total of 6 S mint cents, I was really surprised more at finding these than the 10 wheat cents, S mints are usually pretty difficult to find here.

 

I have not actively searched rolls in quite a few years, with results like these today I may have to do this more often :ninja:

Somebody built a homemade coin sorter just for this purpose....

Only watched part but I assume the copper was pulled toward the copper bin due to its magnetic properties?

 

May have to try and build something like that. Would save a LOT of time!
