Pennies and Nickels Now Worth More as SCRAP, than face value

For what it's worth . . .


+1 # Fun information to think aboutBruce Oxenford 2022-03-20 19:22
70 oz of copper equates to 1 oz of silver and 15 oz silver equates to 1 oz of Gold- close enough to constitutional intentions by our founders quick math, the 70oz of copper equation leads you to 1 oz of gold... you may ask, " how many pre1982 pennies make up an oz of copper? The answer is alittle over 11 pennies. So, Alittle math equated out leads us to the equation of- 11 pennies x70= 770 pennies comparable to 1 oz silver and 770 pennies x 15= 11,500 pennies comparable to 1 oz gold (constitutional silver/gold 15/1 rough estimate)

So thats $115 gold folks.... sure pay 3 cents for a wheat penny and convert to gold and it would be $345 / oz gold IF and when gold and silver goes back to constitutional ratio.

Fun fact, Egypt equated silver as twice as valuable as gold.... so there's the potential for silver to overtake the valuation that gold currently holds, when it is realized that though more silver is currently mined from the earth's crust, there is a substantial less amount of silver in the earth's crust compared to gold by those scientists who study the composition of earth's crust.

Fun information for those with ears to hear

Will be interesting hear others views regarding these statements.

And Silver is stuck at about$25.00 an OZ. Go figure.

At $15 (1500 cents) /hr (3600 seconds) = 0.41666... cents per second. So searching for a penny 1982 or older that might be worth 3.07 cents needs to be done in less than 6.5 seconds to be profitable. So the image processing computer (your brain and eyes) needs to find the 'pretty penny' in about 6 and one half seconds. I am not including the less valuable coins either.

Doesn't seem worth the effort, however. None of the calculations include the energy costs associated with melting down the coins, either.

If you want to buy a monster box of eagles, there is an 8 dollar premium. The Comex price is unimportant, none of us use that.

I think Nickels and pennies will be a source of barter for small items in the future. Stock up while you can.
+3 # The FR vs the Treasuryrainmakerman 2022-03-20 10:16
For what it is worth, all bills and digits are created by the Federal Reserve, which is neither Federal nor has any Reserves. All coins are created by The Mint which is a bureau of the Department of the Treasury responsible for producing coinage for the United States. The Federal Reserve is a banking cartel established in 1913 that was given the right to create currency.

So I'm sure the treasury is melting down the coins at the Federal Mints or something. The change shortage is artificial.

I wouldn't mind using my card so much, except thieves keep lifting it when I use it at the store (seems to have stayed safe with online purchases). So I'm one of those weirdos who "pays in cash". The cashiers are unable to do any math. I always have to explain myself when paying $21.50 for a $16.40 purchase.
" It's only 16.40, you only need the $20."
"Um, well I'd like to get a five dollar bill back, instead of a lot of $1s."
"Huh." Long pause while they check their smartphone for the umpteenth time, "can you just pay the exact amount?"
"I'm sorry I don't have exactly 16.40, this will make it easier for you. You can skip the dime, and just give me a $5 back."
*blank stare*
Don't know if the cashiers are braindead from the vax and the flouride, or if the marijuana and smartphones just ate their brains.

Unfortunately, your spot on. Counting change, simple math and thinking is a distant memory.

Believe it or not at one point in time I had sorted out over a ton of pre 82 pennies with a mechanized sorter called a ryedale. Also searched for silver halves and quarters at times.
You can learn alot about history from currency, species, seinorage , a real dollar in silver grains, war pennies, war nickels, hobo nickels, gold, ect.
Another great site is
not a bad idea to have pre 64 silver coins for barter if need ever arises

If a "dime" will drop down the muzzle of your "scatter gun". Next time you reload you may want to think about "dimes", cheaper than "buck shot". And for the "receiving end" a lot worse at close quarters.

Find the old newsreels from 1920s Weimar Germany where Deutsche Marks were used in furnaces for heating and a man is carrying a wheelbarrow full of them down the street! It is little wonder Hitler came to power and even then with a minority of voters.

The recent crisis in Venezuela may have surpassed it but now they are (?) stabilized - at least the MSM says NOTHING about them. MSM awareness is very limited - it is like shining a flashlight in the dark - only what is seen is illuminated, and that probably only to push a narrative like "vaccines good", refuseniks "bad" - but get a load of this

and this

A Buddhist once said "dying is also waking up"
since you enter the realm of pure consciousness, the Clear Light of the Void. If so a lot of the pseudo woke leftists are now truly woke and can see that there are good reasons for following natural law.

+6 # Zink alsoHt247BR22 2022-03-19 22:49
FYI, pennies newer than 1982 with today's zinc prices are now worth 1.1 cents, so save those now too. Also, the 2022 nickel has the same composition (75% copper, 25% nickel as all post WWII nickels, so save those too. Since Biblical times, silver and copper have a ratio of 70 to 1 (currently it is running 77.7 to one).

2015 was the last year I worked as an asst.mgr. for a retail convenience store. Every week, I had to go to the Wells Fargo bank to get coinage/change for the cash registers. Getting $1's and $5's--no problem, right from the teller's locked drawer. But any coinage, my teller would have to close their window, lock their drawers, get another teller AND the supervisor--and together they would go into the VAULT, sign 3 different logs, and bring back my rolls of coinage to my teller's station! Even then, the coinage was worth more than the paper Monopoly bills.....

100+ nations have global agreement now being
deployed called ‘Project Sandman’ to drop and
end dominance of U.S. dollar and petrodollar

“...describes a 100+ nation agreement that, when triggered, will
see those nations simultaneously dump the dollar and abandon
the “petrodollar” status that has allowed the USA to enjoy 50
years of fiat currency counterfeiting and material abundance
at the expense of everyone else. When this decision is triggered, 
the dollar and all dollar-denominated assets will plunge to
near-ZERO literally overnight.”

What's really worrisome is that if it's a 100+ nation agreement, it has to be NWO globalist in nature and therefore the replacement will probably be an electronic currency of some type, tied to a social credit score, where you either toe the party line or you get purged. And I'm not talking about castor oil.

I am adverse to calling people pussys but you
clowns harassing Hal are tiresome and
boring. So Hal isn't posting fast enough for
you and you are complaining and crying.
Pussys. Try CNN.
Or you might attempt a little analysis.
Slowly, we are pushing a severely hurt
nuclear power (Russia) into a corner.
It's like we are provoking Russia to react.
Degenerate Biden allocates billions to Ukraine
for military, knowing he is pushing Russia to
respond. NATO flexes its manpower, making
threatening statements.
So what does this add up to Hal listeners?
Escalation means eventual war. Real war.
So Hal doesn't post as muinstead.
There may be reasons. These few days left
may be meditative or even days of prayer.

But to complain is bad form, really bad for.
Pussy action.
+2 # Getting rid of our moneyGregg W 2022-03-20 01:15
They are spending and giving away billions of dollars because they KNOW it will be worthless soon.

Yes they are damned fools and wasteful but this is deliberate. They could throw it away by building bomb shelters in America but OH NO! We are not part of the plan. The elites want to live in Europe and drink wine and eat fine cheeses.
+5 # RE: I'm adverse...JFY 2022-03-19 22:39
No Doug Brown, you can call people whatever you want, but it is not bad form.

It doesn't seem to me that we were being rude by any means.

If Hal has an overarching reason to not post anything about what may be coming, that's fine; it's his prerogative, but (and this is just my opinion) he could treat us like friends and tell us "Guys, I'm really tired and I need some down time, we'll see each other next week" or "There are things that I can't talk about right now but get your ducks in a row", etc.

I think (yes, this is just my opinion), we shouldn't be left in the dark about the "radio silence", wondering what's going on.

Hopefully it's nothing serious.
# I think he did.Gregg W 2022-03-20 01:19
At the close of Friday’s radio show I heard him say something about taking the weekend off.
I assumed he meant just no radio shows on weekends. Maybe he intended to take a break.

People can look at other sites and get their own information. Hal does plenty but you c a not expect him to be your only source.
+9 # Ducks in a row… 2022-03-19 23:33
JFY, you and Doug can disagree till the cows come home but the truth is Hal has been advising, pleading and encouraging us to get our ducks in a row —and more importantly, our hearts right with God — for a very long time.

As a subscriber I am more than satisfied with my ROI here @HTRS. Hal has inspired me to seek out other sources as he has on several occasions shared concerns regarding TPTB shutting off our access to his site. Yes, HTRS is my first choice but, like they say…one is none, two is one.
Whether he posts hard news, soft news or no news, he’s still my #1 go to source and I continue to daily lift him and his family before the Lord in prayer.
+2 # RE: Ducks in a row…JFY 2022-03-20 00:24
Yes, he's my go to source too, but my point was that it would have been nice if he could have told us that for a certain number of days he would not be posting news items so that we knew what to expect instead of wondering if something was wrong or not.
-1 # Not sure ?Palehorse 2022-03-19 22:10

Seems the first paragraph is a bit confusing.
Am I reading this correctly?

" 1.) ALL pennies 1982 or older... an average
1982 or older are 95% copper and 5% zinc."
"TRASH anything after '82..."

Is this not a contradiction?
# OOPSPalehorse 2022-03-20 09:59

I misinterpreted the paragraph. It is not flawed.
# 'Not sure', is thinking too 2022-03-19 22:40
In this context, the word "average" means: ORDINARY

Was WW3 somehow put on hold and no one told us?

You know, Ukraine, Russia, Poland and the rest of NATO, hundreds of thousands of troops on either side, genocidal bioweapons, hypersonic missiles, and hundreds and hundreds of nukes... just to name a few trifling worries.

Or is this note on coin scavenging so that the kids can chill and keep their sanity?

I used to carry a 1 ounce Silver Eagle Dollar in my pocket all the time. When I would go out to eat or something I would ask the waitress or waiter if they would give me 5 dollars for my 1 dollar coin. Every single one says no. “ why would I give 5 dollars for a 1 dollar coin?” they would reply. Even after explaining the 1 ounce of silver contained in the coin was worth 20 dollars ( at that time) they still wouldn’t get it. I learned a lot about the world we live in by doing that. It’s not pretty

I don't mind a story like this. Adds to the perspective of the times we live in. As far as other types of reports, Hall has not really reported the news, he report things bllbefore it's the news. The behind the curtain news. It's okay if there isnt anything extra to know. As long as that's the case.

# RE: Pennies and Nickels Now Worth More as SCRAP, than face valueJFY 2022-03-19 22:19
You know, everyone needs some downtime, but considering the appreciation we have for him and his work, he could have posted a very short note on his front page telling us: "Hey guys, I really need some downtime; all the stress is getting to me and I will be taking the next few days off unless something really major shows up."

Most of us would have understood, I'm sure.

I kind of enjoy it when he posts some not so serious articles. Interspersing light stories after weeks of deadly serious is a nice break.

Also, for everyone saying Hal is slacking off, maybe you've all forgotten a few weeks ago Hal was sometimes posting for 20 straight hours. Plus doing the nightly radio show.

I trust when there is something we all need to know, he'll have it posted before anyone else.

Enjoy a bit of levity. It may be a long time before we have it again.

To be honest, even if he's being forced to keep quiet about something, he could at least put up filler articles that don't treat us like grade schoolers.

And further to be honest, filler articles are not what his news service is about. Even if for some reason he can't talk about the war, he could write about the Brandons, or China and Taiwan, or a huge etc.
