I usually don't report on my copper, but I do have a question for all. 3 of my last 4 $25 boxes have showed up 2010P BU. I have not opened them and am considering just wrapping them up and keeping as is. Forgive me if this has been discussed here recently, I just haven't seen the thread. What are you guys doing with these boxes?

At last weekend's coin show, I bought a bag of "over 500" allegedly unsearched cents. It was marked at $5, and I could see coppers in the bag. Thinking I couldn't lose, I opted for it.

Here's what I found:
370 zincs (1982-2007, and a single 2010)
137 coppers (1959-1982) (26.3%)
4 wheats (1942-S, 1944, 1946, 1953-D)
10 Canadians (1974-2006, none steel)
---------------------------------------
521 coins total, so I can out a few cents ahead.

1982 BREAKDOWN: 11 copper / 3 zinc (78.6% copper)
