Acid-cleaned copper has very little value, other than as scrap copper. Value maybe five dollars each.

I think the prices for these specimens might be in the $50 to $100 range.

I would think Rock is accurate - certainly not scrap value.

Yeah, I agree, probably the lower end though. I had a bit of a look around at a show last weekend, and $40-$60 would probably pull most of the above up, that's Au$ of course, probably converts to about $3.5mil US$ ;-)

The price I quoted was based on the group of these I bought a few years ago. I bought them at a few dollars a piece for a large lot, and couldn't unload them for $10 each. They're just plain ugly, unless of course you like copper which I do not. As an experiment I cleaned a few and offered them at the same price as the uncleaned pieces. The cleaned pieces sold quickly. Ended up selling them all, but only after cleaning.
