I think the zincolns are quite pathetic. Truly a waste of effort and resources. Many businesses are already rounding off the 'pennies' so as not to deal with them.

This year I quit expending the effort to rescue them as it is not worth my time and resources. If it can't be spent AS IS, it is tossed into the garbage without a second thought.

Much of that sorting happens when I'm hunting. My 800 will ID the very corroded zincolns in the 16-19 range. Where 20 and 21 are the normal ID's of a clean new coin. If they are misshapen or pitted, they go into the trash side of the pouch and then into a garbage can as i leave the area.

Dust off hands. Walk Away.

Those that are in good enough shape to spend AS IS go into the pocket. Not many qualify for the pocket. sad smiley
