    Comedy of Errors

    So my wife, daughter and I went to a neighboring town for to do a little business. My half boxes weren't in yet, so we stopped to get some dimes....$800.00 of dimes...and 7 Eisenhowers that I figured were worthless. I told my wife to spend them on groceries or something.

    Had fun edge-sorting those, but threw out a few pesky canadians which I learned tonight might have had value. We found just one 64 Rosie.

    Now to the coin-counter, cash back and more dimes...this time $750.00 dollars worth. In these we found 3 more Rosies in the last few rolls.

    Free coin-counter once more, broke the machine with my dimes in it. My totals square, so no lost money.

    Getting home, Coinflation informed me that the Eisenhowers were worth $12.00 apiece, and pre-68 Canadians were not to be sneered at.

    Bye the way, the wife had not spent the Ike's yet, so we're good. Dumb, but good.

    If the edge of the ikes have a copper look, spend them for $1, if they look 40%, keep them.

    Thanks gang.

    Yes, I checked Coinflation again and read the fine print. The Ike's don't weigh up, so the wife can spend 'em.

    Whoever said "Ignorance is bliss" really knew what they were talking about !

    nice finds! one question...if you found some canadian coins, why would you throw them in the trash? put them with the rest of your rejects and try putting them thru the coin counter, and a lot of the time it will accept it...keep it up and hh! [R.I.P. Rich Hartford]

    @ Chainchomp

    We give the Canadians to our daughter that helps us search.

    I am convinced that not very long from now, American money will be worth less than Canadian even in coin.

    So somebody will be willing to trade straight across, or with boot.

    You could probably sell any toned clad for a premium...("silver", you know). But I haven't the moral torpitude to do that to anybody.
