and some nice silver
I was happy because I never take the rejected coins if I see the person still around, I always point it out to them. I would feel too guilty just grabbing them. To me that's like seeing a person drop paper money and not saying anything.
Strange batch last night. 3 modern foreign, and 90 cents in perfectly good modern American coin. Oh well.
Found these in the coinstar at the supermarket yesterday. Finding 2 silver quarters is always nice .
That's a very nice CS haul.
No vdb but still one heck of a find is that other coin Greece?
UAE 10 Fils
pile in the reject slot, probably two dozen coins. Mostly foreign, a couple of tokens, a dollar or two worth of mostly-stuck-together US. No silver or other collectibles, so I left it on the counter for someone hungry.
60 cents Canada
3 modern Chinese coins
All on the shelf of a coinstar.
Hiwatt Nice old silver Canadian quarter, as well as the Mercs and the silver quarter.
DeanC12 Nice on the 2 silver quarters.
furryfrog02 Nice on the 1909 pull. I think my oldest is 1917 which was on the grill. Actually it was stuck in between the grill and the very end and I almost didn't bother taking a key and getting it out.
So recently I am finding a dime on the grill, a dime on the back shelf, a dime in the slot. But no scoops that are photo worthy. Today there is a sign that says the Coin Star is not working. And I found a dime on the grill, so that was fun.
But these were the memorable finds:
The tiny half centavo was found last night in a coinstar with some asst Canadian and some Euro coins. At first I thought it was a one centavo from ca. 1960s Philippines based on the common design of the reverse - then I turned it over and saw the United States of America and the eagle and shield and realised this was special.
The dime, I wouldn't have looked for it but there was a small coin spill under the coin machine at the credit union when I went in to make a withdrawal. I picked up the cent and nickel and decided to take a peak under the machine to see if there was any more under the machine. Sure enough, I thought maybe it was a Canadian 10c coin and I had to use a pen to pull it out from under the machine - imagine my surprise when I saw FDR instead of HRH and just knew it was silver.
Excellent finds. I like them both.
