I kind of made that word up. Tredecuple–Tredec meaning thirteen. Uple meaning multiple the value. So how to take your coins and get 13x their face value. That’s what I recently did.
Unfortunately their original value was only $.13. But any time you can tredecuple your worth, it’s worth writing about.
What the hell are you talking about?
I was recently rolling our change, and I came across some fun coins. Three wheat pennies and a mercury dime. I know some of them are worth a lot, so this time around I decided to hang on to them and check.
I looked online and found out they were worth a marginal amount, but far more than a penny or dime usually is.
The next thing I did was take them to a reputable coin dealer that I knew bought. In Pittsburgh, we have Treasure Hunt. I went in with $.13 and came out with $1.75.
The boyfriend complained that we were probably spending more money driving out to this place in gas than we were going to earn. Valid point. Except it was on the way to where we were going anyways. So if you’re going to trade in your coins, make sure it’s on the way.
So $1.75. Odds are turning in your coins isn’t going to make you rich. (Unless you happen to stumble upon a really rare one.) But neither is saving up a quarter here and a quarter there. Until you realize after a few months that you’ve managed to save a couple hundred dollars. If I’m rolling pennies anyways, I might as well increase their value.
