    Found in The Coinstar Reject Bin Thread

    A Netherlands 1990 5c piece, and a Monroe County NY sesquicentennial adult fare token for the local bus service. Has no one checked a Coinstar since August?

    Gold-plated 2005P West Virginia SHQ... in a roll of dollar coins. Has no one else found anything since September 2018?

    MS70 silver eagles toning and spots

    I'm not familiar with 'Midwest Financial' as a grader -- do you have pictures of the slabs?
  4. Oooo, lovin' that Apollo token!

    Coin Roll Hunters Post Your Finds...

    I regularly get rolls of dollars and/or quarters for the bus; haven't had a good hit in a quarter roll for a *long* time, excepting one or two bicentennial quarters in AU to AU+ condition. And of course I go through them before putting any in my pocket! I mean, it's just possible to hit something interesting. And if they've got rolls of halves, I'll always snatch up a few. Just 'cause. But nickels, dimes and/or pennies? No, haven't done those in ages.

    Circulating Kennedy Half dollars

    This was about fifteen years ago, actually, at a Tim Hortons.

    (dons his best perfectly innocent look) 😈 (rats, didn't work again) 'Lucky Pierre', for the record, is the perfectly innocent nickname I gave the vending machine in the break room that has so far delivered two impaired proof SHQs and two 90% silver quarters. Because it has been lucky. For me. I can't help what other people think about... 🙄

    Circulating Kennedy Half dollars

    And I have had clerks here in America think that a Kennedy half was a two-dollar coin just because they never see them. Man, do I miss circulating halves... and Ikes.

    Lucky Pierre strikes again! 1962D quarter in quite lovely condition!
  10. Ooo, but I do like that space shuttle one.

    ikaros' goodies

    All right! Aside from flash flooding and way too much time spent on buses, I had a great time at the coin show today. More pictures to come, but first up is a proof-of-concept shot of the 1972S silver PR69DCAM I got for the Ike collection. I jury-rigged a glass holder with LEGO and boy am I glad I have a remote for my camera. Getting the light lined up correct was not easy, nor was getting the focus just right. But judging by at least some of the results, I think I'm on the right track: Of course, I'd like to get those black proof fields, but in the absence of those, this will do nicely.

    Monumental Money

    Yeah, I found a couple of the original images and started a new album for them on my Flickr. A fortunate thing, because one of them doesn't exist anymore; the building has been torn down.

    Monumental Money

    Realizing that this topic has lain fallow for a VERY long time... is there the remotest chance anyone saved the images from this? Imageshack went evil a few years ago and cut off all free users, so I no longer have access to my own pictures, and I find myself a) in need of them and b) disinterested in re-taking the pictures any time soon.
  15. Well, for the bells and whistles tickets. $40 for the museum and village isn't grotesquely out of line, at least IMO. You'll pay at least $45 to get into Cedar Point or King's Island, and that's before the $20 for parking.
