Can anyone enlighten me on the rules surrounding scrap values? In particular I'm thinking about copper coins considering the demand and increasing cost of the raw material. We even hear so much about theft of metals from streets including copper wiring !!
There must be tonnes (literally) of pre-decimal pennies, half pennies etc. not to mention European currency prior to the Euro. So much of it is valueless to the collector as well. I've got bucket fulls of the stuff that I'd love to get rid of - the charity shop might get lucky but what would they do with it ?
