    Cool Gotta love faulty coin counters

    This morning I stopped by my personal bank branch (the one I do my primary non-CRH banking at) and dumped about $45 in assorted change into the counter. The bag hit its limit so the teller had to come over and switch it out.

    When she opened up the machine there were coins all over the floor underneath the bag carousel (or whatever it's called). At first I thought they were mine that missed the bag once it was declared full. She told me that they're foreign coins and the machine is supposed to spit those out into the reject tray. One of the bags was blocking the reject chute but I wasn't going to tell her that.

    She grabs some off the floor and hands them to me to see. She then starts to close up the machine and I'm like "there's still a lot down there, what about the rest of them?" She asks me if I want them and I said "sure, I'll give them to the kids" (I don't have any kids of my own but always use my nephews as an excuse). She scoops up a bunch more and hands them to me before shutting the door, leaving quite a few still on the floor under the machine.

    My "freebies"?....

    CANADA - 2 quarters, 2 dimes, 2 pennies
    INDIA - 1 Rupee
    CAYMAN ISLANDS - 1 quarter, 1 dime
    BAHAMA ISLANDS - 1 quarter (1966 = 100% nickel)
    EURO - 2 five-cents
    ARUBA - 1 quarter
    1 penny from with no identifying nationality (copper-colored w/ QEII D.G REG . FD on the obverse)
    1 severely corroded coin.

    I took some eyeglass cleaner and some rough napkins and scrubbed away until I could identify what that corroded coin was. Much to my surprise, it was a 1943-D STEEL LINCOLN!!!

    I also picked up 8 rolls of Strunk-wrapped dimes from the teller and got a 1964 Rosie in my first roll (though nothing in the next 7). Still, this has to be one of my most profitable days yet.

    I also love them on those occasions that they count more coins than you had. However, today was $20 low.

    The QEII coin is a British penny.

    I'm assuming it's the small one and not the half dollar sized one.

    My 3rd most profitable day was today. Got an extra $26.xx added to what I dumped. 1st was $60.xx added to a dump. 3rd was 2 reject tubes FULL of coins, some being silver. It was something like $30 in silver. Quarters, dimes, a war nickel, and Canadian silver.
