    The wife is a manager for a retail store. She brought me home a ziplock bag about half full of coinstar rejects. Found a bunch oddball stuff that was pretty modern. Mostly all foreign coins and a bunch of Canadian coins. Here's a list of the keepers that I thought were cool. Nothing valuable.
    2 ea. 1957 Spain 5 PTAS
    1 ea. 1953 Gr. Britain 1 Shilling
    1 ea. 1945 Canadian Cent
    1 ea. 1940-M Mexico 5 Centavos
    1 ea. 1917 French 1 Fran
    3 ea. 50% Silver 1968 Canadian Qtrs.

    Oh and what I thought was the coolest of all of them.

    A One Cent planchet.

    The Type 1 blank didn't go thru the upset mill.

    Actually, the 1968 Canadian Quarters are 50% silver and the 1917 1 Franc is a little over 80% silver.

    Yea, just about everything was foreign. Only US coins I found were 3 beatup statehood qtrs., 2 roosie dimes and 3 beatup lincolns. Lol I probably had about 100 coins in the bag.

    Good for you, Bobby! I have no luck at all at Coin Star machines in my area.
