-4.069 Bitcoins sold for 20.35 USD
-Pre-1982 Penny collection reaches 3 pounds ($4.65 worth)
I've realized that in the near future, Bitcoins will not make it back up to their 6.00 USD/BTC rate that I bought them at. Therefore, I've taken a small 5 dollar loss on that investment, and I am going to use my money to invest elsewhere. I have on hand $7.67 in pennies ($4.65 of which are pre-1982 pennies). With the sale of the Bitcoins, I now have 25$ in cash.
I've posted an ad on eBay to sell these pennies (See here), and I should be able to sell all 3 pounds within 2 weeks. I say that because the price I am selling them at is lower than any other eBay selling, and I think customers will realize that and appreciate it. Going through thousands of pennies, picking out the ones that are worth something, and returning the ones that aren't to the bank has been daunting to say the least. I will say that it is an easy way to kill time though, and when you're studying engineering (like I am) you have plenty of it...Not....
Going through all of those coins has make me realize a few things.
1. Pennies are REALLY, REALLY, dirty.
2. Every penny has some sort of weird substance stuck to it.
3. Canadian pennies are way too common.
4. You need to wash your hands after you touch any sort of money....Trust me.
