I'm pretty sure pennies make shitty copper. It's illegal to melt them down into something useful.

Wouldn't it be ironic to pay for copper wire with pennies?

One penny dated between 1909-1982 weighs 3.11 grams
146 (pre 1982) weighs 454.06 grams which = 1.00103lbs.

Also it is "NOT" illegal to meltdown these coins. It is illegal commit fraud with them, such as counterfeiting (melting quarters to make fake silver dollars, etc). It is the will of the "government" to phase out the old and in with the new anyway. ENJOY!

okay, I think this is my last time. Note "may prohibit or limit"
United States Code Title 31, Section 5111(d) states:
(1) The Secretary may prohibit or limit the exportation, melting, or treatment of United States coins when the Secretary decides the prohibition or limitation is necessary to protect the coinage of the United States.
you can see the rest google: United States Code Title 31, Section 5111(d).
