Note that while most of the actions which are part of this quest can be performed in any version of the game, they are only officially grouped as a quest if the Unofficial Patch Plus is installed.

- Quest Complete
There are three kinds of items that Copper is willing to buy, two of which can be collected on the spot and only one of which is necessary to complete the quest. Copper will buy any three regular blood packs for $120 each. They can be bought from the blood bank at the medical clinic or found in a variety of other places. A pack of bubble gum can be found on the pier, next to the trash can to the left of the arcade. He will buy it for $100.
The only item necessary to complete the quest is the Wooden Stake which can be found on the beach, beneath the pier next to the fence. He will buy it for $100 and then instantly ask who the head vampire is. Either reply earns 1 EXP and a Humanity Loss. Choosing the President of the United States additionally results in a Masquerade Violation.
Instead of selling him any items Intimidation (minimum level 3) can be used to cheat him and make him pay $200 upfront. However, no items can be given to him after this, making it impossible to complete the quest anymore and thus it is not recommended.
