    how accurate are coin counting machines

    im using a self serve machine lately.

    strangely it has been giving totals of 1000.50 to 1004.50

    on a lot of skunk bags i dumped.

    wonder if machine is off or boxes were heavy to begin with ?

    always wonder about the machines.

    if they break so often then miscounts sure are possible.

    Sure they may be off now and then. The machine I use is great, when counting $5-6 hundred worth in dimes it may count 2 or 3 as cents. I won't complain.

    Re: how accurate are coin counting machines

    I dump in 7 different machines. Quite often I'll bag up a counted amount to see if they total correctly. Whenever there was a difference from my count, it has been in my favor. However the overage is usually only a few cents that were stuck in the machine because of pocket lint, screws, pop tops and other junk.

    Re: how accurate are coin counting machines

    I use 7 different machines all are very accurate when counting halves. Once in a great while I''ll get a miscount on dimes, usually when I pour them in to fast. The loss is always less than a dollar.

    Re: how accurate are coin counting machines

    I've been dumping in a machine for a while now with absolutely no problem. This week however, the thing finally broke on me. I only had a small amount to dump, around $200 in halves (counted before I dumped). The machine broke down after about $100... The teller tried to fix it, but it would only take around 5-10 coins before jamming again. He finally took them to another machine they had behind the counter to finish counting them. Somehow in the mess, I ended up with an extra $25 It appeared to count the correct number of halves, but there were a whole bunch of extra nickels and quarters. No clue what happened...

    TD is fine with halves. I usually come out ahead with a few rattlin around inside when the machine turns on or stuck in the shoot. Also, I almost always find goodies stuck on the magnet or in the reject bin.

    You are getting back more than you dump - why be concerned?

    I dump all denominations at TD. Sometimes coins get stuck on the tube leading to the reject slot. Check it when they change the bag. If they're are too many coins stuck on the magnet inside the tray, they may hang up in there also. Watch your fingers when clearing it, pins and other sharp objects also get stuck there.
