I hadn't been through my wife's coin purse I quite a long time...but I did a week or so ago. Nothing significant this time, but I've found some keepers along the way. I'll need to be more diligent...she likes making exact change thereby reducing my chances of finding keepers.
@Relic Raker The unmistakable flash of white! Fun find!
She may have spent a lot of silver and old wheat pennies. Did you check Coinstar rejects because many people find silver because coin stars remove silver because it weigh is heavier than clad coins which may improve your chance of more keepers.
Got this last week at Walmart self-checkout. I was surprised it wasn't rejected. Those machines scan only one side of the coins? I know that's Elvis Presley but I'm not sure what the 25th Anniversary thing is about.
I fear you are correct. She hasn't caught the coin collecting bug and enjoys teasing me about "all my money". She wants the "millions" but not willing to help me look for it.
Hi Jeff - Elvis died in the summer of 1977. It was the 25th anniversary of his death in 2002. What might have happened here was that a diehard Elvis fan bought a novelty piece that upon their own death, got spent by another family member who didn't share the Elvis fascination. Fun find just the same. I've picked up a couple painted/decaled nickels during a CRH event. Nothing like it in my change though.
I had thought that it might be the 25th anniversary of his death, so I looked it up and told myself that it's been more than 25 years since he passed. I forgot.... 2002!!! Lol. (And I got an A in Calculus.)
Then i checked out and i got 2 silver dimes. I asked if they had any more old dimes and i came back with like 20 silver dimes including mercs. It was crazy!
@sambyrd44 Nice find Sam!! Check your 1917 out carefully for similarities to this. Pictures are a little small for me to discount your coin.
When I was a kid, I was a cook at a local restaurant. I was cooking one day when I heard one of the waitresses dump a roll of quarters in the drawer. I heard the sound of silver! I shouted out from behind the grill that all the silver was mine, and I proceeded over to pull a solid roll of silver quarters out of the drawer. As I went to fetch another roll of quarters, I claimed the silver in the safe. Ended up with 4 rolls of silver out of 6 rolls in the restaurant. It was my best day for silver!!
