    Ejected Wheaties

    Went to return the last bag of quarters to my CU and found these in the coin machine reject tray.
    1920 D
    1935
    1943 D Steel
    1950 S
    1954 S
    The vault manager I deal with was not there so I could not get the penny bag as I think there just might be many more in there.
    Going back tomorrow to see if I can buy it.

    That coin machine doesn't have a magnet? Is that the same one that shoots the trash into the half bag?

    Every time I'm at a store that has a Coin Star machine, I check the reject "bowl". Yesterday I found a foreign coin, a token and a 1949 Silver Dime.

    I had this same thing happen to me once, grabbed a handful of wheaties out of the reject chute... Once they popped open the machine to pull my bag of halves they also pulled a bag of pennies and I spotted a big dump of them. Was lucky enough to be able to get the bag:

    Whenever I find a wheat in the reject chute it's almost always pre-1940. Maybe the excess wear makes them slightly lighter and prone to rejection.
    Last appearance in pocket change:

    Wheat penny: 1956-D (7/24/19)
    Silver: 1949-D quarter (8/9/19)

    Went back today.
    HUGE WHEATIE DUMP
    I have not counted them yet. I need to date check them.
    100's and 100's of them
    Also the inner reject tray was overflowing.
    Including wedding ring and a few what looks like diamond earrings. And well over $10 in change.
    The one thing that scares me is the hypodermic needle cover (no needle)
    Not sure how long it is going to take me to date check all these.

    Sweet Wheat Harvest. Check those quarters - 2 visible American Memorial ATB quarters might have a 'W'

    my CU says the reject bin is sent to lost & found -- I can't buy bags . bet Mr. Found makes out good on the "lost" coins & trinkets. why wheats get kicked at 3.1 grams & coppers don't is a mystery, doubt the machines have a built in spectrum analyzer

    I don't think I mentioned but these came from a bag of pennies that I bought.
    He opened up the machine and let me look to see which bag had the goods.
    There were 3 bags in the coin machine. The first newest one I could see bunches of them.
    He also let me look at the dime and quarter bags to see if I saw any silver. I did not see any so I only bought the 1 penny bag.
    Exactly 400 Wheaties

    Congratulations, but you didn't observe the #1 rule - Buy Them All. Maybe next time.
