Just one question, what is the law regarding physical currency?

There are a few variety of pennies worth thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.

A couple of them require weighing the penny to determine what it's made of. If it's from a particular year and has a particular weight, it's worth a small mint.

Now imagine learning this and then seeing copies of that year staring up from under all that lacquer, and having to resist the urge to dig them up and check.

1983, incidentally. If you weigh a 1983 penny and it weights 3.1 grams instead of 2.5 grams (copper alloy instead of copper-plated zinc), it's worth a whole lot more than 1 cent.

A 1944 penny made of steel is worth even more (supposed to be copper), but that's obvious without weighing it. Worth slightly less is a 1943 copper penny (supposed to be steel).

What are the odds this guy checked for any rare pennies before putting that floor down?

#2 "Worth slightly less is a 1943 copper penny (supposed to be steel)." Except for this one...... One 1943 copper-alloy penny is the only known 1943 copper penny produced in the Denver mint and sold for $1.7 million in 2010, while other 1943 copper pennies are worth in excess of $50,000, depending on condition. During World War II, the war effort needed copper and zinc, so the 1943 penny featured steel, but a few copper-alloy blanks were still in the hoppers at the mints. Because of the value, enterprising forgers cover 1943 steel pennies with a layer of copper. A magnet reveals a forgery; if the penny sticks, it is a fake.
The 1944 steel penny is also a mistake, with a value sometimes approaching $100,000, depending on condition. The U.S. Mint changed the coin's composition back from steel to a modified copper alloy made from used shell casings, but some steel blanks left in the hopper resulted in rare 1944 steel pennies.

6. seldomseen77 ‘wtf is a pemmy?’

It is a error that has no semantic value or truthfulness – much like the placement of the word ‘beer’ next to the word(s) ‘BudLight’ on the bottle so proudly displayed in the vid.

ugh. you'd think a tatted creative hipster type like that would have a better taste in his beer.

#12 I saw they did not look American, but #2 was referencing US pennies so I was speaking to his comment.
