Unless the coins are rare(which I doubt since they only go back to '63) I don't think OP would make any money of them

There's a lot wrong with what you said 21 but I'll just say this. It's illegal to melt down US currency.

#35 I didn't see anything about melting it down in his comment. Although #21 is a little high with the price. Silver is just over $20 an oz, making your quarter worth about $5. Then you'll be getting a little less then that if you sell it to a pawn or coin shop so then can make a profit.

Exactly. He did not mention melting it, and although the price was too high, silver pennies, and steel quarters are worth slightly more as collectibles.

True. A copper penny is worth slightly more than a penny. Certain groups of people will stockpile any they find. I don;t go out looking for them, but I do have several large mason jars full.

I am an avid fml reader.. Don't you dare say my life is boring. In fact I consider myself more awesome (if I may say so myself) than my friends who have had the misfortune of not discovering this site's charm. I've tried to lure them in. More than once. They're just not blessed enough!

maybe #3 means that OP can take the coins to a bank and exchange them for cash instead of carrying a can of coin around

Hah. Real cash? As in federal reserve notes? The metal in the coins at least has value aside from the federal reserve. Especially if they are old. Like pre 1965 quarters? Silver. Dollar bills are such a joke. And the rest of the world knows it.

That was my favourite source of entertainment when I was little. Honestly. And that is what you do when you've absolutely nothing else? I must have had a sad childhood...

Maybe it's just me but this doesn't sound that boring; oh the stories those coins could tell. Where have they been? What have they bought in their lifetime?

To me that makes it even more magical. The penny has come all that way just to be with you.
