    I came across this 1964 penny and it seems to be in pretty good condition. Are these pennies worth anything from this year? BF6D0401-A483-41BA-96B6-3DEABC527D14.png D93D82C2-D948-4F48-921D-35C49177447D.png

    There were soooooooo many made, but it's ALWAYS worth putting back nice examples. They aren't going to get better.

    I'm 63, and I still check my change every time, looking for really unusually NICE coins, not errors, nice coins, and put them away. It's the way my generation learned this hobby. I would have that Philly one in a 2x2 so fast!!!! The Denver less so.

    I agree. Although it's really not worth much right now, anytime I come across something more than 20 years old that looks like it was minted in the last couple years or so I stick it into a coin tube or a 2x2 depending on how old it is. I figure if it makes it as far as my great grand kids the will be very happy that I did.

    I save all of my prescription bottles, some sizes are perfect for quarters, another size is just a little large for halves 2018-08-12 06.36.28.jpg

    Glad I could help. I just started another bottle for pre 1982 thru 1959 Lincoln cents. Who knows, maybe I have enough of them some day to sell for their copper melt value. Just in the past week I found six in my change.

    For those of us who have enough prescriptions ??

    I use glass jars such as from : spaghetti, sauces, jellies, etc. to bulk store coinage for quarters and cents (broken down by decade). I also use one of those plastic ammo cases for all my nickels, dimes.

    I have a Mason jar too, but I hope I never get so many coins that I would need more jars. I can imagine how bewildered my wife might be to find these on my passage — sooner than later based on my 16-per-day prescriptions.

    I put my bulk pre 1982 memorial cents in the gallon container I used for my last colonoscopy purge.

    Wait until you get a prescription that says "No Refill".

    Keep. You'll find fewer and fewer of 64's in that good condition these days. I never get tired of nearly AU coins. I give them all to my grandbabies. That way they can look and see which ones are the best. Now they look at both sides

    I have a lazy Suzy or large 6 compartment tray with a large round center. When I don't have the time or feel like putting my coins in a denominational compartment at the end of the day they are tossed into the center. Going back later to put them in the different compartments. I like calling it a Lazy Suzy cause I get lazy sometimes.
