For those interested, heavy copper price at EMR was £4.51 per kilo this last week. Best price I've had for a long time.

There will be a new weekly price from Monday but likely to be similar, maybe. Welcome touch just before Xmas.

That's good. :) Might pay a visit if I can get organised.

Heavy copper prices have risen steadily for the last couple of months. Weighed in today at £5.59 per kilo at EMR. Brass, if I remember correctly, is about £3.40. Ticket is in the van.

Interestingly, I asked about the price for cu-ni coins, around £4.20 per kilo. They would need to assess the copper content of the alloy first though. They have some sort of laser device which reads the composition of any metal alloy.

May be more convenient than your local university equipment for proving expensive coins.

Just a thought.

Hmm I wondered this last week, looking at a pile of shillings and florins etc.

No-one seemed interested, even when nickel was through the roof.

it's still maybe double the copper price, so maybe it's the nickel content thats  being checked?

You could be right. I only assumed that it was the copper content. I did ask once before and they said chuck them in with the brass.

I'll try and visit towards the end of the week and report back the scrap value of a Churchill crown.😀.

Please form an orderly queue. And no pushing at the back..... Can you hear me?
