    I typically buy everything that comes off the machine except for quarters and small dollars. Hopefully the dime bag will come off the machine next week. I've already sent an SOS to the teller asking him to hold any quarter bags they have. I hope he 1. is working today and 2. that he gets the message before the armored car service picks up the quarters.

    that would be a treat wouldn't it. When I hold it just right under good light I think I'm seeing the last 2 digits as 11, but not sure.

    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
