The 1981 Penny

The 81 Penny seems to have a bit different metal composition than the 80.  This is what makes coins so interesting is their little differences on even widely minted standard pennies.


1980 Penny Metal Composition?

Before I believe 82 many of the regular pennies had a substantial amount of copper in them.  In this video I show a 1980 penny that I found by an old outdoor fireplace.

A 1978 Penny Minted In Denver

These old copper pennies are a sight to behold.  The D I believe denotes the Denver mint. I found this coin in a spill pile where trees had been removed and chipped. The ground was stirred up a lot and produced good relic finds as well. All in all I had a good day.
