    Hola everybody thanks for stopping in. I wanted to share my Coinstar find yesterday at a Walmart. So far its my 2nd silver find. I keep telling people it is possible to find silver in these machines. You just have to be persistent and patient. My other coin was a silver Canadian quarter 1962.
    Thanks so much for stopping in and can't wait to see your pics 20201019_214612.jpg 20201019_214612.jpg 20201019_214555.jpg 20201019_214612.jpg 20201019_214555.jpg 20201019_214533.jpg . Bsafe and Happy Hunting :)o_O;):pompous:

    Not bad. There’s a whole giant thread on the CRH subforum.

    my best coin star find was 50 silver dimes - an entire roll.

    second best was when the machine had a malfunction and kept spitting coins out. $25 in change later it finally stopped

    *Actually, I did not take a photo of my treasured find, so I borrowed a picture of a similar coin from another thread.

    Yes, I am sure there is another zinc-rot Lincoln cent in my future sooner or later. I can't wait.

    This was in a Kmart Coinstar machine located in Puerto Rico when I was on vacation.

    Me neither. No Coin Star finds in almost a year, though.

    How do you get coins out of Coinstar machines? I thought you were supposed to put them into the machine.

    The reject tray. Many people don't hear them drop due to all of the noise the machine makes while counting your change, and then they don't think to check for rejects.

    My last two finds were: 12¢, a Canadian dime and two zincoln's. Then the Austrailan 5¢ coin on a second trip to town.

    Once found 12 bucks Canadian. And not talking any looneys. Well maybe one. Not sure. Was with my grand daughter. She’s hooked. Calls even if she finds a dime or less. So proud
