    what do you guys do with your clad?

    Does anyone else keep it? alot of the pennies are banged up pretty bad but even so I wanna keep all the clad I get just to see how much I can get by winter. I think so far only about 6-7 good hunts, my son and I got about 55-60 clad coins, itd b nice to hit about 300 or so

    I throw everything but the quarters in a jar until I have enough to hit the coinstar. The quarters go in the poker machine. Really eaten up zincolns I just throw in the trash, since no one will accept them, I probably throw away a few dollars worth a year, but I just can't see any way to make hanging on to them worthwhile.

    I collect military relics, mainly German and American, but interested in others as well, pre 1945 .. Always interested in adding to my collection

    Quarters go in washers & dryers at laundry,
    Shopping cart at Aldies gets Bent & damaged ones that won't work in machines anymore.
    also use quarters in other coin Op machines & parking meters.

    Rotted Zinclons get saved till I find out IF I can send them to the Mint & How,
    or placed in a Mason Jar when I Have enough, & Buried as a cache.

    Rest gets turned in yearly

    Everything above pennies go into a change jar, at last count there was almost $700 in it wife has hit it when she needed change for something..........Pennies go into another jar, lost count of how many are there, the zincolins are usually spent, most stores still take them...

    I clean all of my nickles,dimes and quarters in a rock tumbler,then dump in coin star machine.The machine charges you 11cents on the dollar if you take cash,so I put the money on charge card
    like home depot,sears and theres no charge per dollar.

    Usually once a year before I take vacation I tumble the clad and turn it in at the bank. They have a coin machine that does not charge a fee. Then I use it as spending money on vacation.

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    It's funny this thread should come along now. I didn't know what i was going to do with the clad and some other finds until about a week ago. I didn't even know how much I had. After every hunt I come home, the clad goes into a strainer to clean off the sand under running water and then into a Rubbermaid container. Most of the clad is pretty clean so doesn't need serious cleaning. The only clad that is toast is some of the stuff off the beaches in AC. and outside of a Charity Hunt i haven't hunted there in almost a year.

    So I'm thinking what to do with this found money? I counted it up, seperated the coins that didn't cut it and gave the money to one of the Children's charites I support. $420 in round numbers. There is probably anothr $100 in toasted coins so gotta figure those out.

    I take it to my bank twice a year and cash out. At the end of June and end of December. I take the wife to Outback Steakhouse and it feels like a free night out. Its not the only time we go there during the year, but its the only time the bill doesnt feel like a punch in the gut.

    my son and i set a goal, keep all the clad we find and when we get enough, buy him a new ace 350, seems like a long while away considering we only have about 5 bucks so far lol

    It adds up pretty fast...especially if you find a few dollar coins. Good luck.
