    Food Lion is a much more common sight in North Carolina and Virginia. However, there’s a few scattered locations in Tennessee, Florida, and Georgia.

    There’s still one operating in St. Mary’s Georgia if I recall correctly. From what I understand Food Lion downsized considerably.

    Speaking of Food Lion, found a bunch of coins in the Coinstar there today, including this bad boy!
    Food Lions are like 7/11s here in SE VA, they're everywhere. 001.jpg 002.jpg

    Nothing much today aside from a solitary Canadian Dime at Publix earlier today.

    I finally remembered to check the coinstar yesterday for the first time this year a whole handful!
    I'm thinking about getting the one in the middle graded, it's clearly a rare mint error!
    I think maybe it was struck by a meteor!:sorry:

    Checked the coin machine at my credit union this afternoon, another member was in the lobby yapping on a phone and gave me a funny look for looking at the machine. Then I checked the rubbish bin next to the machine because people oft throw out rejects, and sure enough there was some barely identifiable thing that looked coinish but rough. I picked it out, put it in my pocket and forgot about it until this evening when I put it under the glass and photographed it:


    Well it appears as though this is a 1945-P war nickel that some sop just cast off into the rubbish bin!

    Saved from the perfidy of an eternity in some smelly landfill.

    I found my first silver coin this week in the machine at Stop & Shop, a 1962 dime. It came with 3 washers and 2 parking lot pennies.

    Someone should start a grocery store/convenience store chain called Snack Tiger.

    This (from yesterday) is a pretty typical find for me. Common coins and coin "sandwiches" of 2 or 3 coins stuck together with some nasty sticky substance. Gross, but I pour some boiling water on them in a small container and they separate pretty easily. 7697.JPG

    You'd think they would leave you some silver for having to deal with that grody to the max mess.

    My bank has a coin counter, and the employees are told to throw anything they find in the reject bin into the trash. I always check the trash can next to the coin counter.

    Oh yeah! I found a Spanish 100 pesetas, large silver coin from 1966 in the trash can once - an employee threw that and a lot of other stuff out with it.
