Accumulation jars - What is in yours?

oih82w8oih82w8 Posts: 11,896 ✭✭✭✭✭

There are times I am glad that my wife does not throw all of my accumulated items in the trash. I spotted a Mercury Dime towards the bottom of this jar. It's been a long time since i "found" Mercury dime, and the curiosity is getting to me as to what the date is. πŸ€”

What is your accumulated jar?

    Yeah, right. (41-D) I could not stand it no more.

    I need to put these in a more secure place than a jar.

    Mine is just a ziplock baggie in my nightstand. I'm confident there's no Merc dime, SLQ or such. Not sure if I did find one whether that was necessarily a good or bad on my part. Lol

    An accumulation of mostly junk.

    Incoming change goes to the shelf next to the reject jar. After inspection it’s placed in the β€œ hey grandpa you got a little extra money β€œ Jar 😁. Perhaps the reason grandpa keeps a $5 and a $10 handy.

    I have cans and jars of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters that I keep meaning to cash in or sort through ... but I never get around to it.

    I also have a little clay dish up in a cubby on my desk

    I have a tin where I put all my copper cents. I haven’t counted it but it is at least 20 pounds.

    I got one of those giant water jugs for my daily change... other than that, I've been putting really worn silver in this for a number of years as I find it cheap. Way back when I started, you could buy slick type coins for 90% silver price. Those days are few & far between now.

    I think you're right. I thought it was upside down. Maybe not?

    No, it's not upside down. I see the numbers and the eagle now. Never mind!

    How many P01's do you have in that pile?

    Amazing "coin porn!" I love these photos and they bring back nice memories of my grandparents who had similar keepsake boxes and antique bowls with coins they'd picked from change or had been dug up from their garden.

    It looks like someone mugged @LordMarcovan with all those holed coins.

    My accumulation jars are filled with:
    no-date Buffalo nickels I want to disperse,
    MD finds also to be dispersed (Coin star?),
    Indian head cents,
    and well over a thousand Lincoln cents picked from roll hunting.

    I scrutinize all the change for keepers etc. before depositing it in the coin jug.

    I've got a junk drawer...then a few junk bins in a junk room.
    That's where I draw the line.
    The loose change jar when full usually gets wagered on blackjack lessons.
    Usually doubles up for a profit.
