- Should I pick up pennies off the STREET NOW!?
- Q: If you're going to pick up pennies from the street, (which I don't, because it's dirty and not worth the effort), do it smartly. Pennies made before 1982 are almost pure copper and the metal alone is worth 2.5 cents. Pennies made after 1982 are zinc coated and are worth less than a cent. So keep the older pennies and cash in the newer ones. But you may have to wait a while to make a profit. Believe it or not, the government recently issued a regulation to prevent the melting of pennies, since the pre-1982 pennies are worth much more than 1 cent. However, when that regulation expires, it will be open season on copper pennies, just like it was open season on silver coins (dimes, quarters) after they stopped making them in 1964 due to the price of silver increasing above the coins' face value. How true is this? Here is the link ( go to the RESPONSE section after the article, its # 3rd ). Its “lethwik”http://finance.yahoo.com/expert/article/moneyhappy/46958I already have over $20.00 worth of pennies but still, I have not cashed them in yet.

- How much are these coins worth (more detail)?
- Q: Ok I was watching this show on the history channel Pawn Stars and it got me thinking about these coins i kept in a plastic bag under my bed that i thought were cool when i was a kid. Turns out most of them were from places like Roller Kingdom and Lazer Zone so they're not worth much (haha) but there are a couple that i think might be worth something....1st off (and the biggest coin) is a bronze coin (as according to an incription on the side) that is 2 3/4 inches in diameter (6.985 cm) and 5 mm in width (0.19685 in). on the side there is an inscription "MEDALLIC ART CO.NY. BRONZE".One side has "DETROIT'S 250TH BIRTHDAY FESTIVAL" written along the top and "1951" written underneath that and along the bottom it has "PAST" "PRESENT" and "FUTURE" each word seperated by a dot. It had a picture of detroit along the sea. It has "CIVIC CENTER" written on scroll paper along the coast and a long sort of boat in the water. On a cloud that obscures part of teh city-scape has "OLD FORT PONTCHARTRAIN 1701" written on it and a picture of what seems to be a sort of small town surrounded by walls and forest off to the side.On the other side has "ANTIONE DE LAMOTHE CADILLAC FOUNDER OF DETROIT" written along the top and "250TH ANNIVERSARY 1951" written along the bottom. It has a picture of a boat with 8 visible people and a flag aboard. There are two rather extravagently dressed one monk or preist of some sort (he's dressed in a robe, his hands are crossed and he's holding a cross in his hand) Then there are five visible (but six presumed) rowers. The flag has one symbol scattered on it 17 times (visibly - the flag is partly obscured by the men's hats). It's a long sort of rowing boat with a large curved front and back. They appear to be landing on a shore where three american indians one of whom seems to be holding something (a bow & arrow?) The shoreline behind them (the one they are leaving perhaps?) is apparently pine trees and mountains. On this side there is also the name Rene (possibly Pene, not entirely sure) P. Chambellan (the maker?).I'm not sure of the weight, and I'm REALLY bad as estimating that type of thing, but it's relitively heavy.How much is it worth? do you know?I also have another coin that SEEMS to be bronze (it looks bronze to me but there's nothing verifying the material) 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) and 2 mm in width.On one side it has "COLORADO" written on the top and "CENTENNIAL STATE" on the bottom and six stars between the top and bottom (three on each side). Then inside a smaller circle there are four pine trees surrounded by some sort of vine.On the other side there's just a picture of a mouse surrounded by pine trees and a mountain with "MOOSE" written on the top.No idea what it is or how much it's worthThen a silver-ish one (still no way to tell the material) 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) in diameter and 2 mm in width. on one side it has "7th NATIONAL JAMBOREE FARRAGUT STATE PARK IDAHO JULY 16 to 22, 1969 BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA" written on it and a picture of idaho. and on the other side of the coin a picture of a deer (with mountains in the background and three trees) with "1969 NATIONAL JABOREE IDAHO" written on it.I know what this one is but how much is it worth?and I've got a US penny from 1956. But it's different than today's penny. On the side with Lincoln is the same as today but on the other side it has "ONE CENT" written on it with two feather's on the side of it. Is that just how pennies were made in the 50's or is this one special.I've also got two 2 dollar bills. Are those worth anything?
- A: I answered your question about the first medal before.The Colorado medal is difficult to locate.There is an eBay auction of the Boy Scout medal in the first link below.The Lincoln Wheat Penny was minted from 1909 until 1958, and yours is probably worth about 3 cents.The third link is a general price guide for US paper money.The study of medals like your first three items is called exonumia, and these items are typically not worth more than $10US though there are many exceptions to that rule.

(10 points for this question plus another 10 for 1 other question on which there still will choose the best answer) nice Christmas gift eh? beautiful 20 points in only 1 hit!The story is about a working class native of Hawaii, Keawe, who buys a strange bottle from a sad, elderly gentleman who credits the bottle with his wealth and fortune, and promises the imp in the bottle will also grant Keawe his every wish and desire.Of course, there is a catch — the bottle must be sold at a loss, i.e. for less than its owner originally paid, or else it will simply return to him. The currency used in the transaction must also be in coin (not paper currency or check). The bottle may not be thrown or given away. If an owner of the bottle dies without having sold it in the prescribed manner, that person's soul will burn for eternity in Hell.The bottle was said to have been brought to Earth by the Devil and first purchased by Prester John for millions of dollars; it was owned by Napoleon and Captain James Cook but each sold it. At the time of the story the price has diminished to eighty dollars, and declines rapidly to a matter of pennies.Keawe buys the bottle and instantly wishes his money to be refunded, to convince himself he hadn't been suckered. When his pockets fill with coins, he realizes the bottle does indeed have unholy power. He finds he cannot abandon it or sell it for a profit, so he wishes for his heart's desire: a big, fancy mansion. He then sells the bottle to a friend (after explaining the risks) and returns to Hawaii.Upon his return, Keawe's wish has been granted, but at a price: his beloved uncle and cousins have been killed in a boating accident, leaving Keawe sole heir to his uncle's fortune. Keawe is horrified, but uses the money to build his house.Keawe lives a happy life, but there is something missing. Walking along the beach one night, he meets a beautiful woman. They soon fall in love and become engaged. Keawe's happiness is shattered on the night of his betrothal, when he discovers that he has contracted "the Chinese Evil" (leprosy) in his travels. He must give up his house and wife, and live in the caves with the other lepers. Unless...Keawe tries to track down the friend to whom he sold the bottle, but the friend has become suddenly wealthy and left Hawaii. Keawe eventually finds the bottle, but the owner has bad news: he only paid two cents for it. If Keawe buys it for one, he won't be able to resell it.Keawe decides to buy the bottle, and wishes himself clean. But now he is despondent: how can he possibly enjoy life, knowing his doom? His wife mistakes his depression for regret at their marriage, and asks for a divorce. Keawe confesses to her his secret.His wife suggests they sail to Tahiti, where the colonists of French Polynesia use centimes, a coin worth one-fifth of an American cent. When they arrive, however, the suspicious natives won't touch the cursed bottle. Keawe's wife decides to bribe an old sailor to buy the bottle for four centimes, and she will secretly buy it back for three. But now she carries the curse.Keawe discovers what his wife has done, so he asks a brutish boatswain to buy the bottle for two centimes, and he will buy it back for one, thus sealing his doom. However, when Keawe goes to retrieve the bottle, the sailor threatens to bash in his head. There's no way he's giving up the magic wishing bottle.Keawe warns the sailor that he'll go to hell if he keeps the bottle, but the sailor never expected to go anywhere else. Keawe returns to his wife, finally free from the curse.
