Penny Collection

Coins | user_19604

    This is a collection I got recently in the Fun Show of Orlando, I'm a young Numismatist, so someone gave it to me for free! This contains pennies made from 1959 to 1982 (A. K. A. the copper pennies of 95% Copper and 5% Zinc). These pennies have the Lincoln Memorial on the reverse of the coin. Of course they made these coins until 2008, but the some of 1982 to Date are made 99.2 % Zinc and 0.08% copper. These coins are in great condition, I know that they are not worth that much, but it's still something rare and awsome to find! By the way, it has two of each date, one from Denver, and the other one from Philadelphia! HOPEFULLY YOU CAN SEE THE PHOTO!! ENJOY :)

This is so nice, and a nice red color to them. Congrats, and keep it up. Choose a coin you have a distinct passion for and collect it. Build a coin collecting library. And, read-read-rad. Get educated. Look closely for the books by Q. David Bowers, and possibly Rick Tomeska. Buy the Official Red Book of US Coin Collecting. ... Blessings! From one newbie to another, Pastor Greg Knippa

Have a good year! Blessings! Thx por the positivity!

Just remembered back when I had a Whitman cent folder. It was about 1970, and dad gave me a small hammer and wood stake to "hammer" the coins in their slots. But now I know better!

The old 1959-1982 Memorial 95% copper cents are really starting to disappear from pocket change (start looking and you'll be surprised!). It's also a "closed set" which is worth collecting when you consider it.

Whitman folders are a great way to start.

I will be honest, I don't like those folders, but to hold those pennies while it can, I'll take it any day!

Those are in great shape. It is awfully nice that someone gave that to you for free. It is getting harder and harder to find nice Mint state examples of the 1959-1960's. Well done!

Awesome!!! That is one of the great perks of going to a show or being in a club. We older collectors know that to keep the hobby strong, we must nurture YNs. I am so happy that someone at FUN, wanted to nurture you with a really sweet set.
