    S the grocery store manager is dumping the contents of the coin machine "dirt box". Then he has the customer service girl give them to me for free because "they're from the dirt box and so they aren't counted."

    Ike is not silver unless it's an 'S'. Doesn't look like one... but the ASE is a very cool find!
    Just my two cents worth...

    Sweet find! A good friend of mine once handed me a clad half dollar and a silver eagle and said "here I found these quarter things in the gutter; you can have them" and I explained the value and everything, my friend would not even accept face value for them. I guess you need to make friends with as many people as possible in this hobby because it will pay off lol

    Ike isn't silver, I wonder though how much they've thrown in the trash from the dirt box...

    Weigh the ASE and also try a magnet to it. When they are that gunked up, you should at least suspect that they might be counterfeit.

    I hope it is legit, but if it is counterfeit, that's a unique find in itself. I found a counterfeit WLH in a bank box from Chase. It had very similar artificial "toning"

    The poor grocerry store manager must of had an Ike-roll-esque concussion at one point in his life and never recovered. Good story right there dawg.

    Hey boss, explain to me this dirt box.... Or anyone that knows about how or what gets caught in them. Also do you have a relationship built with the store manager to check them often?
