    Very cool find this morning!

    My last six metal detecting outings were unremarkable, yielding only modern clad, junk earrings, and lots of frustration. This morning I went for a cup of coffee at the supermarket after dropping my honey off at work, and ran my hand along the bottom of the Coinstar reject tray as I always do. I felt a few coins and scooped them into my hand.

    As I looked at the coins in my hand I could swear I heard the Angels sing! I must have unconsciously done a happy dance or let out a gasp, because the Customer Service guy at the desk next to the Coinstar, asked me if I was OK. I assured him I was fine, pocketed the coins and was so excited I forgot to get the coffee!

    At this rate, I may sell my detectors and start "Coinstar-ing" full time!

    Wow Terry, that's the best Christmas gift ever! How could someone not realize what they left if the reject tray, but that's good for you! Nobody on this planet is going to beat that one! I'd say you deserve it!

    Dang! A handful of keepers! Amazing.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Wow! What a day! I bet the silver quantities are better by coin roll hunting or checking coin stars all the time but man I love the thrill of getting a good signal and brushing the dirt off to find out what I got. Well done!

    I scooped up a handful myself a couple days ago and was shocked that they were all modern clad in great shape.
    1 state quarter, 2 dimes and 3 lincolns.
    Why would the coinstar reject these?

    SCORE! At that point I would no longer need any caffeine that morning
    Do you ever look through the holes in the bottom of the basket? I got a 925 necklace that way. It was my first silver form a coinstar. I use an unsharpened #2 pencil and two way tape on the eraser end to fish things out. Talk about some strange looks from folks... I got the idea from this site. A poster here had fished out a gold earring.
    Congratulations and GL with both coinstars and tectin'.
