    My First Hunt of 2008

    Picked up $210.00 in dimes at various banks, looked through all of them and found nothing older than a 1965. Found 1 foreign coin, a British 5 pence, in the mix. And to top it all off, when I took the dimes to the casino to dump them I got shorted $1.48! Go figure on that one? I had no pennies in the batch......She said, "That's what the machine says". What are ya gonna do?

    I'm working on my pennies now.

    I'm stuck with the pennies and dimes cuz seger98 is too stubborn to get some reading glasses He says "As long as I can see the dates on the halves, quarters, & nickels, I don't need glasses!" But he still uses a magnifying glass, LOL. Some men, I'll tell ya!

    sounds like some of your dimes got counted as pennies- all part of the game. HH Mark
    Life is a coin, you can spend it any way you wish, but you can only spend it once.

    Ouch, yeah getting burned a bit can happen on a lot of dimes real easy.
    I like to go into banks at the end of the day and week and dump my halves. I almost always get a good amount of extra coins in the count. Sometimes as much as $12, but usually only a couple coins or a couple bucks.
    try turning in later int he day after others. that way whats stuck in the machine gets knocked lose for you!
