    Some recent pick ups 1901M Vic Full Sov 1891M Vic Full Sov Rare short tail 1866 Shield YH (the 1966 YH picked up last week, but nice to see 100 year difference coins together) 2005 half sov Two 9ct gold ingots (bought at 2% over spot)
  2. Would you prefer a 960-ish anti-tarnish silver alloy over 999 silver?

    yeah I am the same- especially when buying older coins / bars. Nice selection you have there.

    He is basing his maths on a flawed assumption. Assuming only 25% of them are copper. Ie: 25KG is copper which works out at £121.50 NOT £88.30 (maybe spot was diff when he worked it out). 100KG of only copper pennies will then actually yield you even a his figures 4 times as much.

    they saw your copper pics and thought that silver is getting so expensive you have been reduced to collecting copper pennies And that caused a massive surge in buying.

    Your maths looks wrong matey: Each coin is 97 per cent copper, which means that each 2p coin contains 6.9 grams of the metal and each penny piece contains 3.45 grams. (7.12g and 3.56g full weight) To get a tonne of copper it would take 145,000 2p coins or 290,000 1p coins, giving a face value of £2,900. 1 tonne worth of pure copper pennies pennies would weigh 1032400 grams (pure weight 1000500 grams or 1000.5 KG) Metal content they would be worth £4,861.81 Scrap dealers pay £3.80 -£4.2 per KG of "heavy" copper which is 97-98% copper = £3923.12 Profit: £1000 per tonne.

    a tonne would yield you £320 profit... if 100kg gets you £32. A tonne has 1000kg.

    I used a VERY large magnet to separate my lot. It makes picking the rest out much easier to isolate the copper ones.

    So the cheapest I have picked up in the last few months was £250, I managed to get 4 at that price. But the quality of yours are pretty good compared to what I got The seller still has 10 more, wondering whether its worth me buying them at that price...

    Holly bad. Where do you get such large quantities from? And if I may be rude to enquire - do you pay retail prices?
