Found in The Coinstar Reject Bin Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm guessing whoever took a bite out of it didn't find the taste appealing.

This morning on the way back to work stopped in a grocery store and checked the coinstar machine and found four rotten zincolns, a nice 1940 cent, a 1969 Canadian 10c, but the best find - a 1952 George VI 10c in .800 silver!

I found a 1957 quarter. That's it. First and only time I've looked. And it was uncirculated. A small victory for Bambooski :woot_jump:

This was a while ago, but I'll post it anyway.

I waited for the person in front of me to finish using the coin machine, and when they walked off, I looked in the reject tray. This is what I found:

1979 Italian Lire- uncirculated! (pre-Euro)

Belgian 5 Franc (pre-Euro)

6 or 7 euro cents (ranging from one cent to five cents)

Costa Rica- 10 cent

An Egyptian coin

2 50 pence British and about 5 1 penny pieces

A Mexican dollar

1 Canadian cent, 2 nickels, 3-4 dimes, 3 quarters, and a 2 dollar coin

Quite a few regular USA pennies, dimes and quarters

I had to stick my hand waaaay up the machine to get all that out!

Went to the grocery store to buy up bacon, eggs and biskies for the fam this morn and found these little treasures hiding in the corner of the reject slot in the Coinstar:

First time I have ever found a '32 quarter, the Merc is a '45. I like silver in my morning. Puts me in such a giddy mood for the rest of the Sunday.
