Some of my favorite ice cream was on sale at the grocery store this morning and I went to buy some. At the cashier lane, I was in, I could see the Coinstar machine and saw something shiny in the reject bin. When I stopped at the machine, the bin was loaded with coins. I started scooping them out and dropped a dime and it rolled about ten feet away. A man picked it up and handed it to me. I was totally surprised when I got home and counted what I had found.
Cents------------12 Nine of them are wheat cents. best date----1927
Nickels-----------2 Just common Jefferson's
Dimes------------100 HERE IS THE JACKPOT. 98 of them are silver Roosevelts!!!!! About 10-12 have lots of mint luster and are almost uncirculated.
Also, there were 24 foreign coins. I won't list them but, a number of them are listed on eBay for several dollars each.
Then, to top it off, after I got my ice cream safely put in our freezer at home, I went to a casino and won $110.11. Really good day to say the least. I could swing the coil for months and not find 98 silver dimes.
I would like to post pictures, but don't know how from Photobucket. MDH
