So im standing in line to cash a few scratch tickets right now and the coinstar machine is right there, I looked and didnt see anything so I walked up close and right at the edge I see a dime.

    I've found several car wash tokens in the coinstar reject slots myself - just wish I knew where the car washes that take them are so I could wash my car!

    Great haul... and a silver dime as well....Congratulations... I have not found any coinstar coins in at least a month... maybe longer....Cheers, RickO

  • bigtime36bigtime36 Posts: 961 ✭✭✭✭

    3rd silver dime in a month and only my 5th time looking. I'd say I'm off to a pretty good start.

    Same machine today, checked it when entering store and nothing. When I left there was a handful of change and tokens in reject slot. Plus this silver!

    I forgot to post here last week... found 9 quarters, five dimes, three cents... all modern, no silver. Still, was great to get a handful of change after a long drought. Cheers, RickO

    It wasn’t a coin star but at my bank coin counter. I was dumping my quarters after searching for W’s. None found yet unfortunately for me :'( but when I went to dump, there was a ‘67 silver half sitting in the reject tray just waiting for me. :) . My biggest piece of silver so far! I usually find silver Rosie’s, but a barber dime is my best so far. No silver quarters for some reason.

    Bamboozled Again!! Lol

    It's all about what the people want...

    @Kliao....Congratulations on the silver half.... I have never found a silver half (or any half dollar) in the reject slot. Cheers, RickO

    This is my first half. Never thought there would be one since mostly the only people that dump them are from CRH
