I read somewhere that the Fed Reserve will replace those chewed up Zinkies.
It made me wonder about stuffing in as many as a USPS flat rate box would hold, and mail them in.
Other than being out 10$ or whatever the freight is, would this pan out?
How many coins do you expect a box would hold?

I hate to throw them out, but they don't even make good fertilizer.

eye popping smiley. No! Don't order more! LOL

If I can't spend them immediately due to corrosion, they go in the garbage. I think of it as doing my own little part in ridding the world of the darn things. I don't waste time or money or cleaning materials trying to get them to pass the eye test. It isn't worth my time.

After my first year of tossing the corroded zinc pennies in the garbage, I feel better. I don't have to sort them and store them and try to clean them then sort them again. I recommend those here stateside give it a try. It is a great feeling to be rid of them, so to speak.

And no, I do not count tossed out corroded zinc pennies as coins found. If a zincoln is in good enough condition to use, it goes in the spending pocket. There are not many that make it there.

Is what's lost, worth finding?

Yes, it can be ... with the right location.
