    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    My friend moved the other day and I was helping him w/ some stuff. He wanted to know if I wanted a bunch of scrap metal tubing, I say sure it'll give me an excuse to buy a welder, then he wants to know if I want a small bucket full of smaller tubing and scrap aluminum, sure I say. He hands this thing to me and it's really fn' heavy for how big it is, but I drag it home anyway. Then lastnight for the 4th I need a bucket to put water in so I dump the bucket out on my workbench and under the scrap metal it's all pennies..... /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif 14 fn' pounds of PENNIES, yes 14 pounds.
    It took me an hour to search through them but I found 7 wheat backs (the oldest being 1940) all in great condition and 2 Canadian pennies, 1945 and 52....
    When I took them to the bank it took the machine like 10 minutes to count them....LOL
    So can anyone guess what 14 pounds of pennies is worth? /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
