Exactly the one I was thinking about.

Almost 10 years since a post in it. I guess that's why I don't remember seeing it.

Not quite right. The last post was from last year. By me. :ph34r:

Last post in it was Feb 17, 2022.  I linked to the first post ^_^

 

Whoops, somehow I clicked in the middle of the thread when I thought I'd went to the last page. My eyes are barely open for some reason. Good thing I hadn't planned on doing anything important this morning.

Had a feeling it was a case of being tired, it happens to us all 🙂

It's a pretty much constant for me anymore. I don't sleep well a lot of the time and I vary from slightly sleepy but fully functional to barely dragging my butt around.

Most of the terms I'd use would not get past the forum filter.  

 

 

 Most of the terms I'd use wouldn't translate into human language without an illustrative interpretive dance involving fire and sledgehammers, lol.

Now, I'm no math wizard, but this just doesn't add up:

 

A family who found 800,000 pennies in their basement tried to find a million-dollar coin, but gave up and now want to sell the lot for $25,000

 

 

That's a pretty big gamble, IMO.

 

(google the italicized part for the whole story)

Maybe it's one of those older alloys that are now worth more than the actual individual coins?

 

That and the modern cost of producing pennies and nickels is much higher than their face value.

I think it's more the fact that face value of them is only $8k...  So you're literally gambling that you'll be able to make back the instant loss of $17k by buying in at that price.
