Coinstar find

@ricko
Hi, ricko, This is actually the metaldetectinghound that I used to post under. Somehow, my account got corrupted and I have been unable to sign in for almost a month. I called Collectors universe and they said I would be on hold for 30 minutes. so, I just created a new account with another email address I have with the name of metaldetectinghound2. My wife hit the Coinstar two days ago and found $1.62 plus an almost uncirculated India 5 Rupees coin.

I had a CT scan two weeks ago and my doctors told me my lung cancer is doing great and the tumor is about 80% reduced to scar tissue. I am very relieved about the report. I will have a follow-up CT scan in April for another check. Ken

    @metaldetectinghound2 welcome back and good news or your health. The wacky winter weather fluctuations have me vasilating between detecting and getting ready to plant something early. Peace Roy

    Not coin star but my CU coin machine, like I said before......each week when I cash my check I always bring a handful of change to cash in........that alleviates the awkwardness of just checking the machine in front of the tellers. :)

    There's a 1943 Lincoln and a 1991 one pound coin that is very thick with edge lettering.
    And the 'button' is actually a magnet :)

    Holy cow! :o Was that all piled up in the return slot?? I've noticed the CoinStar at the grocery store closest to me has theirs way over to the far edge of the front, near the furthest register. It's very out of the way so I don't get to check it too often. I think I've found maybe a few coins in there, all just modern cents, nickels, and dimes. Haven't had a nice CoinStar score in a long time.

    @Dockwalliper :o Unbelievable.... That is incredible....I have never, in all the years reading coinstar finds, heard of such a treasure in the reject slot.... Congratulations.... Cheers, RickO

  • Were those found over time in Coin star machines? I never thought to check coin star machines. Do non-clad coins fall through because of sensors?
