    One last thing for now. I also check the reject bin every week and this machine had 29 steel cents in it and that is also where the 1931 Canadian Nickel was found. It's possible that the quarter bag may have something, but I remember one instance a couple of years ago where I found a barber quarter in the reject bin. So I bought all of the quarters (I seem to recall it was three bags). they were a total skunk. I also took quarters the next week just in case they were still on the machine when I made my rounds. that was also a skunk.

    Epic! Go to that bank and buy dime and quarter bags as soon as the are ready. Looks like someone's granny collection/hoard got dumped for quick cash. I would expect a good batch of mercs and washington Ag quarters.

    You need to go fill the other bags and immediately buy them!

    Time for Nic-a-date? You can use this:

    Homemade Nic-a-date recipe
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    I've heard back from the vault teller and he was able to keep everything from being picked up so I'll head over that way in the next couple of days to see what else might be in the bags

    I've got a bottle of nic-a-date (they last forever), Just have to find the set of acid dates i've been working on and see if I can add to it.

    Years ago there was also a product we used to bring back dates on SL quarters. Have you ever seen a recipe for that? I haven't seen it in years so it was probably toxic

    That is just crazy awesome. When buying the other bags don't forget to buy the penny bag.

    Definitely a dream bag; So you bought the penny bag already or it is still on the machine?

    I have been collecting for 6years and I only have 80 war nickels and 2 liberty V. You have found a lifetime of CRH in one day.

    I buy everything except quarters and small dollars every week. when I made this particular pick up there were 3 cent bags and the 1 nickel bag. I'll pick up the quarter bags that are full tomorrow and hopefully the dime bag will also be full.

    I got 3 cent bags that day. In addition to the 30 steel cents that were in the reject bin. One of the bags had about 50 earlier date wheat cents with most of them being in the teens and 20's. no key dates and most are very worn. That bag also had 10 indian head cents. AND a bag of nickels from another branch had 3 war nickels, 2 buffalo's and 3 V nickels including a very worn 1883 W/Cents. Once I get the other bags I'll post a new message with updated totals.
