    Re: Machine Finds Thread (add your own!)

    Tonight while checking out at the grocery store I noticed that they moved the green machine on the left side of the exit. It used to be at a corner that you have to walk up to it. It would look funny without a bag of coins. So I told myself that I'd better take a peek when I was walking out. I always hope to find a steel cent because I never be able find one from the box. When I got there I did notice a coin in the reject tray. I picked it up and look at it briefly. My heart almost skipped a beat. It is a seated dime! This one has enough details that it goes into my US type album.

    Re: Machine Finds Thread (add your own!)

    Found a "homeless stash" today. My usual quick look at the green machine looked uneventful, just a couple of abandoned bags on the ledge. I moved them and found a pile of badly corroded zincolns beneath. I quickly gathered them up.

    Looking thru them yielded some interesting finds:

    107 ugly, gray zincolns that will probably end up in the garbage. Some weighed as little as 1.3 grams, almost half what they should. One actually broke in half!

    1 copper cent (1971), the oldest but he held up just fine.

    Canada 1 - 2007 RCM (x3), 2008 RCM and one dateless

    Canada 5 - 2008 RCM

    Great Britain, one penny, 1984

    Philippines, 1 piso, 2003

    Thailand, 25 satang, 2008
    Last appearance in pocket change:

    Wheat penny - 1958D (5/9/14)
    Silver - 1928P dime (12/5/11)
    Dollar coin - 2007P (Jefferson) (8/12/13)

    Coins everywhere around the green machine today.

    - 2 zincolns in the reject slot

    - 1 dime near the edge of the basket that someone missed

    - 1 Canadian loonie dollar (2006 RCM) on the ledge

    - 1 heavily corroded dime on the floor (196?) that weighs 1.6 grams. It has a silver ring to it but that might be from the loss of metal. No visible mintmark on the back.
    Last appearance in pocket change:

    Wheat penny - 1958D (5/9/14)
    Silver - 1928P dime (12/5/11)
    Dollar coin - 2007P (Jefferson) (8/12/13)

    The casino where I work installed a Coinstar a few months ago but I've yet to find anything...until today.

    The reject slot held a nice steel penny bonanza (nine P-mint, two S) plus a 1928 wheatie and a 1971 British new penny.

    Last appearance in pocket change:

    Wheat penny - 1958D (5/9/14)
    Silver - 1928P dime (12/5/11)
    Dollar coin - 2007P (Jefferson) (8/12/13)
