    After the booze purchase I headed to the Coin Star machine. Just ahead of me were two girls who stopped at the machine before me. As they dumped a baggy of coins in, I looked at the reject shoot and could see it was loaded with quarters. I thought for sure the would grab the coins out of the reject shoot and try to dump them into the machine. the DID NOT, they grabbed their receipt and walked away.

    I went up to the machine and risking the Covid virus scooped up all the change.
    I scored $5 in clad quarters (all beat up) probably why the machine rejected them.
    20 cents in clad dimes,
    30 cents in nicklers
    2 tokens, 1 1982 centavos and and Asian coin.
    2 clad Canadian quarters.

    SILVER SCORE:

    5 Washington quarters, 1943, 1953, 1961, 1963, 1964 (typo fixed)
    1 Canadian quarter 1964
    2 Rosies 1961, 1964.
    Also my Lucky Penny from the parking lot.

    Since the Pandemic I have looked at 5 coin stars. This was the only score. I figure the chances of getting a good score is higher than normal because people are running low on cash, and this is the only place to currently turn in coin.

    Stay safe, and well,
    Keep on Searching.
    Dad and Tanner

    PS We have not been to a bank since March 13 this it the first score in over a month and 1/2.
    Congrats...Nice score

    I walked past a Coinstar at our local grocery store today and it was loaded with coins(probably 50-100) I was tempted to grab them, but they looked like they were all full of gunk. There were some even stuck at the top of the hopper.

    With hands full of groceries, little kids at home, and Covid, I decided to pass. Hard to do. It probably would have taken me almost a pull them all out and I have no clue where I would put them all.

    Nice score Gordon and Tanner. I suspect more will be cashing in as the pandemic goes on.

    Our local grocery store, Wegman's, has had the Coinstar machines removed and replaced with their own machines. I don't know if the new ones reject silver, but what I don't like about them is that the reject tray is much higher than the Coinstar one and very easy to see. Apparently they want the profits themselves.
    There's still a Coinstar at Wal-Mart.
