High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - June 28, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Mint on a Penny Hunt issues plea to citizens High Point Enterprise Friday Jane 2$, 1974 7a brass appearing throughout Home by Mort Reed a i to calling on every american to get the Penny Back in circulation and keep it there a mrs. Mary Brooks director of the mint said recently a i am calling on the banking Industry to Welcome the return of pennies during the month of june and i am urging the schools churches and charities to examine ways and Means to involve their members in collecting pennies for Quot again i would like to emphasize there Are plenty of pennies but they Are All in the wrong places. The Price of Copper has retreated. The of billion pennies produced during the past is years have no numismatic or collector4 value and because of the huge mintage they will never attain great value. There will be no aluminium one cent piece and a Copper Alloy Penny will continue to be a part of our everyday coinage system. Nevertheless speculators and hoarders of pennies have caused what seems to be a shortage in certain areas of the country. Creating a shortage where it does exist can adversely affect every Public spirited citizen taxpayer and conservator of the Earth resources. It is inflationary when merchants round off sales to the next Nickel due to a Lack of one cent pieces to make change. According to an Appeal recently released by mrs. Brooks there Are an estimated 30-billion pennies in circulation and another 30-Button being held in hoards by uninformed collectors and would be investors. These Are the coins mrs. Brooks is asking to be returned to circulation. For the mint to be forced to continue increasing the Copper Coin production to meet an unnatural demand is a waste of a natural resource that cannot be replaced by Man. Secondly it is a waste of the taxpayer s hard earned Money. One billion one cent pieces returned to circulation will save the taxpayer Well Over to million. The current Supply and Price of Copper has made it possible to continue production of the one cent com. During the past 15 years the mint has pumped out in excess of 62-billion Copper coins using Over 202,000 tons of Copper in their production. Quot if just 15 billion pennies could be lured out of hiding a to quote mrs. Brooks Quot the mint at current production figures would not have to make pennies for almost two years at a savings of $150 the mint produced 25.7 billion Lincoln cents Between 1909 and 1959 when the reverse design was changed to the Lincoln memorial. The Early series does enjoy collector interest with some years commanding More numismatic value than others. But rarity is one of the determinants in establishing the higher values and most of these rarities have been accounted for Over the past 50 years. A general Rule of thumb is the lower the mintage the higher the numismatic value. But 62-billion pennies of identical design can never qualify As numismatic rarities. Trade your Hoard of Lincoln pennies in on a real collectors item. For every $25 Worth cashed in at a Bank the Treasury department certificate to the individual or group responsible for the Deposit. Obviously the new Campaign to get the cent Back into circulation will require the cooperation of Banks in identifying those to receive the certificates. Names should be forwarded to mrs. Mary Brooks. Director of the mint 55 mint Street san Francisco. Calif. 94175, truly this is a challenging project for anyone who participates.
