    Sorry if this question is in the wrong section. I cant figure out the best one. Its kind of a weird question anyway. I havent been watching coins as closely since covid. Ive actually been just leaving coin change and simply not taking it when I use cash...which is rare. After a few months of "limited" change, the ashtray was still overflowing. Not enough to take into the bank (which BOAs are all closed now around me) but enough to make a mess in the car. I decided to take them into the grocery store and toss em into coinstar. I was shocked at its 12% fee, but I chose to load them in so I cant complain. My question is this....why would a 1941S penny get kicked out? I had 3 wheats I tossed in there...two 1945s and a 1941S along with all the other randoms. I got the 41S out of the reject cup and tried it through 3 times. It just wouldnt take.

    Just curious as to why it would reject if other wheats were ok?

    Theoretically, if it's really beat up, the weight could be low enough for the machine to consider it something other than a cent.

    It doesnt look too bad. ....I mean not bad enough to lose weight or anything.

    I failed....didnt read that option.

    My scale is dead. I have no super powers but it feels the same as the others. I mean, theres no glaring obvious difference.

    Must be weight and/or size as the CoinStars was pretty particular.
