  1. Re-sort everything into their proper places. Take some better photos of the more interesting coins. Drool over eBay.
  2. Nice finds! I haven't had any CoinStar hits in a while m'self...
  3. I like to get $2 bills and half dollar coins to make my purchase interesting for the cashier.
  4. Likewise; I even use plastic for smaller purchases anymore, and even the vending machines have card readers now. It's reached the point where it feels a little weird to hand over actual legal tender.
  5. 2012 Mexican 2 peso piece. First find in a while!
  6. Agreed -- these 'classic' commemoratives are among the reasons I'm not a huge fan of the modern ones (although I did buy the moon landing issue this year, because I'm a huge NASA nerd). These are pocket sculpture, genuine artworks. Most of the modern designs leave me flat. What I've never been clear on is whether these coins actually circulated or not. Anyone know?

    Ooooo, that's nice! I love that super high grade proof Ikes are so accessible.
  8. 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?
  9. Gold-plated 2005P West Virginia SHQ... in a roll of dollar coins. Has no one else found anything since September 2018?
  10. I'm not familiar with 'Midwest Financial' as a grader -- do you have pictures of the slabs?
  11. 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.
  12. This was about fifteen years ago, actually, at a Tim Hortons.
  13. (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... 🙄
