    I think you meant .34 euros, 34 euros would have been great!

    This thread reminded me to visit my local Coinstar with a jar of change. I go about 3 times a year.

    First of all, the three coins on the right are my "test coins". Two Canadian dimes and a corroded US cent. They always get rejected so I just keep them as a test.

    Today, when I walked up there was some change jammed in the input slot and nothing in the reject bin. I started the machine, unjammed it, and then let it count what someone left behind. It counted and counted but only registered one cent. What I got was more interesting. The coins on the left are the ones worth noting. Two silver dimes, 1927 and 1963d, plus another Canadian dime, and then a 1 Kuna Croatian piece. In addition there were 5 cents, 4 dimes , and 2 quarters - all should have been counted but were part of the jamup. Why they didn't get counted is a bit mysterious. I then dumped my jar in and let it go - it did reject my test coins as expected.

    So, I got 95 cents in US coinage plus two silver dimes plus the two non-US pieces. My change totaled $55.75 and I always opt for an Amazon gift card at 100% of coin value.

    I did post a photo of the coins. :)

    Just look at the bottom of my OP and click the attached photo. The silver dime has its own row below the row of the other dimes.

    Yesterday I found two quarters, two dimes and one cent in the Coinstar reject slot. No silver, no wheatie.... Cheers, RickO

    Today's finds. First coinstar finds in a while. Unfortunately no silver.
