I accumulated 10 pounds of pre-1982 pennies, with a face value of $15.50, and a melt value of $34.19. I sold the 10 pounds of pennies on eBay for $18.53. This netted me a total return on investment of 19.5%.
Like I said it's not a great profit, but I still had a lot of fun messing around with these pennies. A few readers have emailed me and said that they're also trying out penny sorting. Check out one of their blogs here. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be making my 1 million dollars by sorting pennies and selling them for their copper content, so this may be my last post of pennies!
Finally, check out how one of the snowboards cleaned up!
I'm still looking for trade offers too!
