Ok, so I am still learning here...lol... I thought I made a "second post" to the blog when all I did was reply to it. The text ended up on top so to the best of my knowledge no one saw it. So I am posting it here.

Thank you all for the warm welcome! I look forward to writing more when I have some photos to share as well. In the meantime, I have a question. I am reading one of the Red Books on Lincoln Cents (up to 2008). On the 1932 cent, it says that only about 800k out of over a million made, was released into circulation. What happens to the stock not released? is it saved or melted down? If they are saved, does the mint still have them for sale? Do they store them with unreleased coins from previous years? All questions of a beginner, I know...lol. What can I say. Roger

I agree too, melted down. ; )


Level 7

Melted down for more he. In nickels and cents.


Level 6

I believe they were melted.

Yes, although some may have stayed in the treasury, I found these years after the depression are the hardest to find at coin shows and everywhere else, took me 9 months to find my first one. Always keep these for later.

Most likely they were just melted down.
