    So i actually am interested in Xmetalfreak Copper penny, but how much are they worth? I know theres on ebay for $500 and it has been there FOREVER. So how much are they worth really?

    I think value is a subjective issue. It depends on how much you are willing to spend and what you feel it's worth is. It also depends on how much the seller feels it's worth is. Xmetalfreak is looking for a trade for Romeo 1's, so his value is based on the current value of Romeo's. On the other hand, if the pair of copper penny's on eBay haven't sold for the asking price of $500, then apparently no one feels that they're worth that much money. Just my 2 cents...

    One completed listing has one with box, just that the lenses are different and it has serial too that went for like 475... So is it safe to assume that the penny itself is worth 200-300?

    Maybe a regular penny in other colorways than the copper. The copper is probably the rarest of them, and therefore more valuable in that sense. Members here have been scoring penny's for really good prices lately, but Xmetalfreak's copper is the first I've seen anyone pick up recently. IMHO, I think Xmetalfreak's trade request maybe a fair deal, but he'll be lucky if he gets a mint Romeo in exchange.

    the penny copper doesnt quite punch at the same level as the romeo1.. maybe abit under. say along the lines of 350? i would feel is a decent price point.. but to each their own..

    IMHO. the penny(copper) doesnt have the same "punch" as what Brip said compared to the romeo is that fewer or not all people can wear the penny and rock it like a rockstar or wear it and look like an action star(cyclops).LOL
    but its as hard to find as the romeo1.

    absolutely, just as hard to find, if not harder; only thing is, the penny is not a popular frame; mostly overshadowed by the juliet and doesnt fit larger faces. definitely one for the display though; fantastic pun in the colorway

    it does shine out of the pool of plasma/xmetal or other neutral colored frames in the display.
