I would say penny.

''Penny saved is a penny earned'' my Grandma use to say
.

Unfortunately she said it one too many times and I beat her to death with a bat!

That's for another thread though...

Thank you come again,,,TLW

I don't know about luck but cash wise pennies are worth more.

180 pennies in a 1lb and copper price today is $4.35 a pound. ;)

That's ok zinc is a $1.10 a pound. :smt118
cant do math can you
180 pennies in a pound that is $1.80 and if you get $1.10 a pound for zinc then your loosing $.70 a pound

and you know its a mixed metal so theyll only pay you the cheaper metal price at best
