    Coin star record !

    At least it is for my wife, myself, and our 2 kids who check them on a regular basis. My wife spied a few coins in the tray from the register she was checking out at. When she got there, she could see it was full. She grabbed one of the plastic grocery bags, and began pulling the coins out. She said it was so backed up, that they just kept coming. She said she almost stopped, as all of the coins seemed to have some sort of oil on them, and it smelled. (The poor dear was getting her hands dirty) ! You can see the oil residue on the paper bag. Near as I can figure, the coins were either deposited and rejected because of the oil, or there was some sort of machine malfunction. Anyway, she ended up with 23 Copper pennies (one was a Wheat) 86 Zinc pennies, 29 Nickels, 40 Dimes, and 49 Quarters, for a total of 227 coins totaling $18.79 ! I rinsed them in a container with Dawn soap, and then tumbled them. Good as new, and ready to spend ! Gonna be a long time before myself or my kids break this record.

    The thing that weighs the coins sometimes gets messed up so it rejects most or everything. Lucky us that find it when its out of order.
