Nice milestone. 502,000 handsorted is impressive. How long did it take you to do this? Keep up the search!

Plain and simple.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your council or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

WOW, I am thoroughly impressed. I've hand sorted to get my mini-hoard, and I've only gone through a little under 200,000 so far.

That is definately some serious hand sorting.. over 200 boxes! How did you get rid of all the zincs?

If your percentages are low.. just sort more. If your percentages are high.. just sort more.

Now selling Copper pennies. 1.6x plus shipping. Limited amounts available.

How long? Started in June of 2007, so 3 years.
Dumping the zincs? Slowly but surely over the 3 years. I roll most of them and take $20 to $25 to each
one of my 2 banks weekly. I of course do not return to my pick-up branch. I also use coinstar on occasion
and use the e-cert (no charge) option because I'm always buying something from Amazon.com. JC Penneys or Lowes.

"CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE IT DOWN to the exact penny."

I am somewhat of a stats freak. :) It is pretty easy actually. I do a box at a time and when I'm done I enter the totals into an excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet spits out the totals.

How long did it take to dump 864.96 into a coinstar? I've done $30 before and it seemed like it took forever.

used machines at 2 diff. places One seemed a little faster then the other. If you're paying attention and feeding it max I think it was $50 every 10mins. The most I did at one time was $233 and was under an hr from time I got out of car until time back in. Unloading,washing up etc.
